Bottle. Fairly subtle citrus aroma. Pours light golden in colour, slightly cloudy, with a reasonable off-white head. Caramel flavour with some underlying hoppy bitterness and strong malt presence. Medium bodied. A bit more bitterness in the finish. Drinkable IPA.

500ml bottle shared with Jo and Seb. Thanks dad for grabbing. Aroma: biscuits, caramel and some light tropical fruits. App: hazy copper, small minimal white head. Taste and palate: medium body, resinous, clean shy and short bitter finish. Overall: not good. Probably not fresh, lacks in fruity aroma and flavors. Shy bitter finish. Dp

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2015 Not an intensely hoppy or bitter IPA but there’s an enjoyable balanced character here. Not bad.

ljthiessen (698) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy burnt orange colour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, a strange overripe melon note. Flavour is lightly bitter, a little sweet, not a lot going on. Pretty light and mild IPA.

ENG: 500ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the IPA glass. Orange to copper, opalescent color, small, white head. Aromas of malts, caramel, toffee, honey. Tastes caramelly, malty. Bitter in the aftertaste. Low to medium carbonation, medium body. Overall quite decent British-style IPA, nicely bitter, but on sweety, malty profile.

PL: Butelka 500ml zakupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do IPA glass. Barwa pomarańczowo-miedziana, opalizująca, piana jasna, niewielka. Aromaty słodowe, karmelowe, toffi, miodowe. W smaku karmel, słód. W posmaku goryczka. Niskie do średniego wysycenie, średnie odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując całkiem smaczne IPA w stylu brytyjskim, przyjemnie goryczkowe, o słodkawym, słodowym charakterze.

cards04 (2217) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 19, 2015
Pours a cloudy burnt orange. Aromas some citrus. Flavours are quite malty.. Definitely a hop presence.. But more in the British IPA style. I found this somewhat boring.

Bottle - rusty brown with a medium head. Earthy hop aroma and earthy dank taste. A little too earthy for me.
