Pull the tab and getaway! Bottle Rocket is an India Session Ale packed with a bright, hoppy bitterness sure to ignite your tastebuds. Unlike its big cousin IPA, this beer is light in colour and medium bodied but packs a hop blast sure to satisfy even the most seasoned Hoprotechnician. Spark it up!

OK I will admit the can got me had to by some. Great beer in a cool looking can wins everytime. Light in colour but full on hoppy flavour, quite refreshing and smooth. Now I just have to get back to BC to get some more.

355ml can found a long way from Victoria. Modest head and okay golden body with hints of orange and a vauge fog to it. Nice strong and sweet hop aroma. Flavour is a well balanced hop and malt mix with a sour and dry finish. In a galaxy of IPAs this one stands out as very well done and sessionable for sure.

Mostly decent but a bit of an odd aftertaste in this. Some mash cloying sense to it. Pours golden with ok head. Lots of bitterness here. Some pine and citrus. Can from Manitoba Liquor Mart.

I just hosed I thought I was ordering a pint and waitress dropped off a can....... 6.65 for a can of beer?!? Besides the price at this place this isn’t that bad. Light, crisp, good bitter finish, nice citrus flavor, not a bad thing to say for what it is. The can is really cool looking. 6.65 for a can....... really?
