COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everything you’d expect from a great American IPA: Hop-forward, yet civilized. Bitter but balanced. Cascade hops ring loud and clear with citrus/pine notes and are backed up by a chorus of our other favorites - Apollo, Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Crystal, and Simcoe.

Can. Pours clear golden orange with a large creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is passionfruit, mango, dank dank dank, pine, cat piss. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, dank and tropical. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. A bit harsh on the finish. Very nice beer - not sure why the ratings are not better on this one!

jdjuice (415) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JUN 17, 2014
Pours hazy amber gold. Smells of piney and citrus hops. On the tongue, strong pine notes give way to citrus pithy notes that linger cleanly. Pretty good weight for a regular IPA, not too heavy, not too watery, good carbonation. High hoppiness but pretty easy to drink. Quite a solid all-round IPA.

jehoesefat (328) - Poway, California, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Skunky aroma, but very appealing. Pours extremely clear light orange with a white head. Good bitter flavors, not too strong. Refreshing, but the aroma is off putting.

fiulijn (16144) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy golden color with medium sized head. The aroma is pungent, with resiny hops and some fruity hops too. The mouthfeel is rather dry, lean, with underlying toffee malts, and above an explosion of fresh resiny hops; piney and citrusy.
Very easy to drink, the pleasure of an IPA.

CapFlu (4723) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
Foamy white head atop a clear golden body. Nose of citrus hop and solvent. Some cat piss in the background, steamed vegetables. Man to my right says it was dry-hopped too long, brewers comment. No malt. Blah!

Crit (3503) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Hazy yellow,white head.Big spicy piney hop nose.Musty hop profile,light malt in back. Bitterness in finish is harsh and a bit off. Nothing to brag about here

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - JUN 4, 2014
To be honest my least favourite Saint Archer. Gooey, heavy toffee body really distracts from the hop showcase. Not very West Coast. Decent, but there is so much competition on the shelf that there is little point revisiting.

mcberko (8691) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out earthy funk, piney and floral hops, and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is rich and robust, with a load of pine and floral hops. Super dry and flavourful, with exceedingly high drinkability. Excellent stuff.

AAEA (192) - California, USA - MAY 31, 2014
22 FL OZ ($5.99) Its an okay IPA, But at $6 I can get two 22fl.oz long hammer IPA for the same price. just a run of the mill IPA. but at least this is better than their pale ale. so far a mediocre brewery and over priced for their product. RateBeer.com need a rating for the deal of the drink!
