Well this was a surprise. I actually enjoyed this a great deal. Reasonably priced canadian IPA, poured from a can into a nonic pint. Heavy foamy head with a sediment filled coppery color.
Sweet pine and fruit on the nose.
Sweet fruit at first with a heavy velvety mouthfeel. Quite resinous and piney bitterness to finish, but still balanced. Will buy this again.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Strawberry and lactic acid aroma with some pineapple and apple. Hazy gold with a lasting, white cover that is lacy. Floral and perfumey flavour that is very bitter. Slightly salty and with a note of dry peanuts. Moderately astringent feel with high carbonation and a lingering bitter bite.

Can. Pours an amber colour with a medium head and a decent amount of carbonation. Very nice aroma - lots of hops, tropical fruits - pineapple. Slightly sweet at the start, then a lot of grapefruit followed by a good bitterness. Pretty dry too. It's good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ambrée, coiffée d’une épaisse mousse blanche, elle laisse échapper des notes d’agrumes typiques des houblons américains. Bien fruitée, les malts viennent l’arrondir, tout en ayant de puissantes propriétés amérisantes. Elle a aussi un peu côté caramélisé, ou de toffee, qui vient allonger la finale. Pas vraiment originale comme IPA (contrairement à ce que pouvait laisser présager sa flamboyante étiquette), mais dans le style, elle est très agréable.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 Good strong IPA beer. Only available in cans from the LCBO. Looks great in a glass, and a strong bitterness at 80 IBU’s.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very big in the piney, resiny hop aroma. The citrus tries to come through, but the pine dominates. No chance for maltiness in there, but why do you need balance in your IPA? Appearance is a hazy yellow-orange, good head that doesn’t last forever, but good lacing. Taste is initially a surprisingly nice sweet fruit, but followed up by bitterness that persists well. Palate is reasonably full, very dry and has a good aftertaste of the bitterness. Great beer!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2014 Pours deck stain brown with a 1/2 finger watery cap. Nose on this one is great: juicy hop aroma & baked goods. Taste is what you want for the $ in a domestic ipa but it doesn’t quite follow through -- the after taste slams its breaks on & the promise of hops in the aroma stands you up. I hate to judge a book by its cover but this can is butt ugly. The Stevie ray Vaughn motif is pure cheese. Still better than many on the shelf. May be the best easy to find ipa in the lcbo.
