Dark body, but white head. Canned. The taste is fresh and with a lively hop.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from LCBO. Pours a dark, clear, reddish amber. Head... don’t remember, it disappeared too fast. The nose is... pff, grainy, malty, where are the hops? Flavours slightly better with caramel notes, and some bitterness, but the overall blandness prevails. The carbonation seems too aggressive. What I have in my glass is a 30 point IPA, max.
I looked for the BB date but can’t find it. What the fuck? - So many times I’ve tried to find BB dates on cans and bottles bought from LCBO and so often they’re just not there. Other times, they sell beers with their BB due a month ago (for example: shelves full of old Stone IPA at Yonge/Summerhill). WTF, LCBO? Fuck this fucking system!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2015/07/22 - Pours a hazy dark copper colour with a thick, rocky, off white head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is earthy hops, citrus, nuts, caramel and a hint of roast. Taste is cereal, earthy hops, citrus, mild resin, caramel and roast. Mouthfeel is medium with average carbonation and a juicy, moderately bitter finish. This was better than I had expected. Nothing extraordinary, but still very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from my local LCBO. A warm red-brown that’s not quite clear. Reasonable amount of dense off-white head. Nose with a solid amount of malt, mildly sweet with just some perfume and flower hops. Tastes like a solid brew. Dense malt favour of cereal, with lower, non dominating, hops flavour of flowers, and bitters. Very drinkable. Not really the hop-bombs of the current view of IPA but a nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A murky orangey brown with decent amount of head.
The aromas and tastes are a nice blend of hops and malts, earthiness, and leather.
I’ve certainly had superior IPAs, but this is by no means a bad beer, and is quite drinkable.

I am an IPA fan , have to try them all when I see a new one.
Love this one smooth, hoppy , but not too. Malty, nutty, just nice beer. In a great looking can. No need to over complicate it this one has a place a my house anyday.
