Dagnabbit! This was a great find of the day! A fine looking, delicious tasting banger of a taste-wizard a knockin’. Rather light yellowish copper with a potent white skull-cap. Extremely piney with caramel malt and citrus notes as well drift nostrilwards. The taste is brilliantly fresh and piney but also with a smooth sweetness keeping it balanced. Mid-low carbonation and a healthy mid-heavy body make this a great IPA!

What a great IPA, never even new it was that strong either. Poured a clear light amber with tiny head. Aroma was incredible, with smells of mango, citrus, pine, and peach. Tasted of peach, pine, grapefruit, and caramel malts. Strong hop presence but good balancing of malts too. Had a medium chewy body with average carbonation and a great bitterness.

A very nice IPA. Pours an ugly clear yellow. Smells awesome, perfectly balanced hops with some tropical fruit and lots of peach. Taste is very well balanced, with some hops mixed with the peach. More IPA-like then the Rogue’s Roost IPA. Had on tap at the brewpub.

(Tasting flight) Pours a slightly hazy light gold with minimal head and spotty lacing. Big citrusy nose with grapefruit and pine resin. Taste is similar against a pleasant caramel malt background. Mouth feel is on the light side but sufficient for the style.

De couleur orange pâle, ambrée, cette bière présente des arômes de pin et de résine. Une petite mousse blanche s?envole rapidement. En bouche, un bon goût de vert (houblon) colle au palais et une touche légèrement sucrée accompagne le tout. Le hop blend est bien choisi et cette IPA est définitivement une des meilleures en ville. Finale résineuse, collante.

Overall this one is really hard to beat. I haven’t found any IPA in the region that is available on a regular basis that comes close to it. Please please please put this in bottles on the NSLC shelves! Hops! Through and through, fruity, juicy, well balanced malt backend, long finish with a firm bitterness that seems just perfect. I might prefer it with slightly less malt character, otherwise, such a delightful and easy drinking IPA. I want one now.

A hazed golden ipa with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, complex citrusy hopped up exemple, mandarine, biscuit malt, very nice. In mouth, a nice fruity malt with floral hops, orange zest, smooth and quaffable yet exciting.

Cloudy orange pour with fairly minimal head. Huge fresh citrus fruit on the nose with a piney note. Solid bitter crunch on the palate without leaning into astringency. Big citrus character.

Our west coast style India Pale Ale screams hop flavour and aroma with an amazing candy-like oily balance. Delicious hop-forward notes of citrus, grapefruit pith and pine meld together as one with malty undertones finishing with a long, lingering draw. A fabulous pairing with all things spicy or cheesy, poultry or fish dishes.
