3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2015/10/24 - Pours a clear, light copper colour with a soapy, off white head that quickly reduces and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is heavy pine, tropical fruits (mango, lychee), citrus and caramel. Slightly catty. Taste is caramel, pale roasted malt, lychee, citrus and dank (mildly catty) hops. Mouthfeel is light to medium and slick with average carbonation and a long, juicy, bittering finish. A great "go to" IPA from the LCBO.

473 ml can @ Timo A.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Strong resinous and piney aroma, sweet hops and caramel. Sweet mango, orange, resinous hops, caramel malts and some bready notes. Slightly stuffy overall feel, sweet. Maybe not very fresh anymore. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Canned. Hazy orange body, small white head. Surprisingly fresh and malty aroma, with summer notes. The taste is deep, continuing with more fruity accents than the aroma. The finish is lovely, and comes in phases.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from LCBO. Pours a translucent orange with a small off-white head. The nose strikes at first as excessively resiny, then mellows as the jammy sweet malty notes surface, as well as some musky hints. Taste is malty and citrusy sweet with a nice resiny lingering bitter finish. The mouthfeel seems a tiny bit too thin for the bitterness overload. But overall it’s a pretty nice IPA. Probably among the nicest I’ve yet to purchase from the retrograde system called LCBO.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.473 can. Clear, light amber color and a large, off-white head. Aroma of citruses and other fruits, most notably banana, strawberries, and perhaps a dash of kiwi - quite nice, almost like a smoothie. Taste is bitter, in a hoppy sense, with a strong addition of the aforementioned fruits. Medium to full body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is bitter, perhaps too much so given the beer’s fruity character. Overall, although the beer would appear as a standard IPA, it happens to be quite curious especially with its creamy, fruity, smoothie-like flavor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Hazy orange-amber in colour with a thin but lasting white head, good lacing. The aroma is of orange juice, floral hops and grapefruit. The flavour is quite sweet, sticky, chewy, grapefruit and floral hops. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, bitter. It’s alright but it seems a little too fruit juicy to me.
