UXO (1527) - CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Pours hazy pale amber with three fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and heavy, chunky lacing. (4/5) Nose is brett and not much else. (4/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate funk, mild bitter. (4/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, mild bitter and funky finish. (3/5) Utterly dominated by a brett infection. Almost no hops left at all - none in the nose and limited amounts on the tongue. Not a bad drink even in the condition it’s in - almost has a saison character - but there’s no way it’s supposed to taste like this. And NO DAMN BOTTLE DATE, so no way to know whether this is just a function of it being on a shelf too long. Deeply disappointing, but I’m gonna have to do what I said I’d do: if you don’t date your bottle, I assume you meant it to taste this way. Rating this as an E/IPA, it’s a massive fail. (6/20)

Bottle. It's like someone took a dare to make the most jarringly bitter IPA and it accidentally was not terrible. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Masterkush7 (580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
My bottle was way over carbonated. He head was twice the size of beer in glass with a carful pour. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and citrus hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Can, very fresh. Pours clear gold with soft head and lace. Aroma is moderate strong hop fruity and earthy, a mix of English and Northwest. Flavor is English earthy lightly bitter and balanced. The feel is alive and chewy. It is a simple but very drinkable and refreshing IPA.

Druid (101) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2013
A good steady IPA that can be enjoyed by non IPA drinkers. This beers slightly cloudy, has good aromas and a lasting palate. A good beer to acquire the IPA taste.

Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2013
My awesome wife always brings me back some treats when she goes home to visit. Poured from a can. A couple of fingers of pillowy white head dies down to a thin film, load of lacing left behind. Nose is sweet malt and a touch of hop. Tastes litely bitter, very sweet malt forward. Very sweet. Nice taste.

Lagerboy (1962) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
Opaque orange with a big rocky off white head that slowly settles. Fresh aroma of citrus floral hops. Moderately bitter citrus floral hop taste backed by mild caramel malts, some spruce and earth. Average carbonation, light-medium body, moderately hopped. Long lightly bitter finish. Nice mild easy drinking IPA. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
Bouteille 660ml, courtoisie d’un contact de Victoria, BC. De couleur ambrée-dorée et légèrement voilée. Nez de houblon citrique (pamplemousse), floral et légèrement herbeux, malté de caramel sucré aux notes terreuses avec des notes de butterscotch et de fruits (agrumes sucrées, traces de pêches). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture huileuse. Goût moyennement amer de houblon floral, citrique (pamplemousse), légèrement terreux et aux petites notes résineuses (une amertume qui dure toute la gorgée) avec un léger goût fruité sucré (agrumes sucrées, petites notes de pêches) et épicées (poivre doux) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel moyennement sucré avec léger de butterscotch et de de miel puis en finale l’on retrouve une amertume de houblon légèrement plus sèche, plus résineuse et aux notes herbeuses. Post-goût long et légèrement sec, moyennement amer de houblon floral, citrique aux notes résineuses et herbeuses avec un léger goût fruité (zeste d’agrumes). (2006)

XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2012
This smells way better than it tastes. Rye and caramel aroma. A touch of citric hoppy note. Taste is malty with bit of tangy tongue feeling. Not much body to it.
