Scent of hops, pine, and citrus. Hazy gold colour. Flavour of orange peel, lemon, and hops. Mild bitterness with medium body. Very drinkable! A nice change from the abrasiveness of other IPA’s.

HopsandBolts (172) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2015
On draft at Local Public Eatery. Quite a bit of citrus and hops coming out for a lighter IPA. This is probably the best lighter session IPA I’ve run across thus far.

BVery (7680) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2015
473 mL can from Andrew - thanks! Light hazy orange pour with a pure white head. Nice citrus and tropical fruit. Low malt. Light yet flavorful. Really nice.

(bottle) hazy, bright pale amber colour with a small white head; aroma of tropical fruit, citrus; dry flavour with a short medium bitter finish

Ferris (7068) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle - Light grapefruit hops. Clear gold with a small white head. Grapefruit and nice light malt sweetness. Definitely a sessionable beer, just not as much hoppy characteristics as I would prefer.

Pours pale amber with thin white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is mild citrus and spruce, and flavor follows. The palate is limited but well-judged: good grapefruit, not just pith, light pine and hay. Another Canadian beer with the hops in the right dimension, providing a moderately bitter edge without overwhelming the brew. Glad to have made another trip north of the border to find decent IPAs.

koppertone (62) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
Thin head. Pleasant amber. Smells of sweet hops, not overpowering. A bitter coffee like flavor with some moderate hops. A moderate amount of carbonation that dissipates quickly.

medium head amber color, citrus, pine, grapefruit , abrupt bitter trails off lingering bitter finish. This is quite good.

Helsdon (262) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
UPDATED: APR 22, 2015 Ahhhh. Free beer at my brother’s house. Slightly cloudy golden. Little white head. Pine, mild citrus and resin hops, with a little hay malts nose. Taste cream and hay malts. Citrus, mild pine and with a bitter finish. Solid beer.

Pours slightly hazy pale gold with one finger of white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, moderate patchy lacing. (4/5) Nose is light citrus, pine resin, pale malt. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry crisp finish. (4/5) They call this a “sessionable IPA” but I’m not sure you couldn’t just as easily call it an APA. Regardless, it’s bright, easy drinking, crisp, and clean, no matter what you call it. Nothing challenging, but certainly more-ish. Yes, I’m aware I’m ranking this equally with Mad Tom and Twice as Mad Tom, but for different reasons - think equally well-done variations on slightly different themes. If anything, this might be just marginally preferable to its beefier brethren, simply because it’s so bright, crisp, and light. (16/20)
