pours clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma is nice. Hopy and floral but pretty dull. Flavour is okay the hops are there but this is pretty uninpressive. All in all this is a very weak IPA.

650mL bottle, pours clear copper with a tiny white head. Aroma of strong piney hops and some malt backing evident. Flavour is a surprisingly potent piney hop punch, with a soapy finish. Exceeded the expectations - very enjoyable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light brown colour with orange hues and a healthy head. Nose: Luscious and bountiful hops, more hop, and then some hop. A one-man-band but a bloody good band at that! Taste: Freshest of fresh hop blast moving to redwood shaded pine. A tangy-tart gesture works its way in. Clamato juice imitation also comes forward. Touch of soap. Some old aged oak shows late and a light maple-like finish rides off. The freshness of this one is outstanding. Fabulous stuff! Brilliant!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red amber color, clean; small head. Mild aroma, but very pleasant: creamy toffee and resiny hop, biscuity, nutty. Unfortunately the rest is not up to the promise; just a very common caramel flavor, with a dryish mouthfeel, correct bitterness, but without hop qualities.

Fairly citrusy, fruity and decent caramel backbone. A bit of candy apples in the mix. Not overly balanced, but a decent try and the style and I could see it having wide appeal with non-IPA drinkers, but that is not to say it is a bad beer. Very approachable and the best from the brewery.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, from Kimberley, BC. Clear amber, brief head. Caramelly nose with slight notes of grapefruit. Mid sweet with shallow malt. Most flavour is caramel, hops remains very subtle. Butter finish with slight saltness. More confusing than enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber from Brewery Creek in Vancouver. Pours a light, clear amber with little head. Thin lacing around top and a half moon of very thin foam. Aroma is piney hops with a thin waft of malt. Taste is reasonably balanced with woody malts combining with tart, citrus and pine hop flavour. Lingers reasonably well. Slightly thin on the finish with a residue of sharp hops in the decent. Overall not that bad but not excellent either. Reminds me of a thinner version of Anderson Valley Hop Ottin IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Spinnaker Spirit Merchants in James Bay. Pours a brown-amer body with a lasting, medium, white frothy head. Nose of mild hops. Fairly thin, some alcohol shows through but the hops aren’t as generous as stated. Its definitely above average but they should give Gary Lohan a visit to understand "generously hopped."

Sparkling amber,small beige head.Piney hop nose.Light pleasant citrus hop profile, good malt backbone. Not too shabby!! An old style IPA that actually has some balance, instead of hops hops hops

Bottle @ Papsø. Thanks. Pours clear copper with a small off white head. Nose and flavor are dry and hoppy with notes of peach, citrus and bready malts. Medium bodied. Crisp and dry.
