tap and can. noticeable difference between the two. can is more malty and creamy. tap at brewery is very bright, bitter, pungent b.o. and citrus. enjoyable in both formats but different beers.

12 oz can from I donít even know when. The pour is a darker golden color, good orange to it, with a thick frothy white head that sticks around for quite a while and leaves some damn solid lacing. The aroma is good. There is a lot of juicy hop to it. No real bitterness, and the malt really comes through about half way and carries it out to the finish. The hops are pretty decent though. The flavor is a little worse. There is a strong metallic aspect to this one. The malts dominate the flavor. There is a little hop resin, and a hint of bitterness on the back end, but itís just really relaxed and slightly disappointing. The mouth feel is a little thicker and has a creaminess to it. The carbonation is a little softer, and this has a distinct aluminum can finish. Itís not terrible, but it could definitely be a lot better.

12 oz. can. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled, ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, amber (SRM 7) body......nose is pine, resin, citrus peel from the hops, light toasted malts with bread, biscuit notes, balance to the hops......taste is slightly floral sweet, with pine, resin, grapefruit notes, light allium, mild toasted malts, becoming dry, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium body, minimal alcohol. low carbonation. This is a pleasant, soft IPA without harsh bitterness, and rather mild malts. It falls well within the style, but is not particularly outstanding. The malts could use a bit of a rework. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

clear yellow gold pour. Aroma cheesey hops, dirty grass, slight orange. Tastes bitter lettuce. Sorta dry finish brings out the bitterness.

Can shared at the WWWW beer tasting at iphonephanís. Gold with small white head. Loads of pine hops with some resin and sweet caramel malt. Decent.

Probably one of the best IPAís I can find year round. Everything in this beer is well balanced. I do not know why this beer is not more sought after, but I am glad I can get it.

From a can. The pour is a dark gold with a white head. A carmel bitter lime taste.

Draft pours clear copper with a one finger white head. Nice citrus and pine aroma, grapefruit (but itís not purple!). Medium dry, hoppy on the finish, citrusy. Resinous and lively. Pretty good.

Can from tavour. Nice thick frothy head. The simcoe really jumps out on this beer. Iím drinking out back while itís colder outside than in the refrigerator! Flavor is fantastic! Excellent amount of bitterness making this really drinkable for the abv!

this is a very good IPA.... Great 2 finger clingy head... nice lacing... nice clear golden color. Tropical fruitbowl in the nose... pithy citrus zest and a dollop of pine. Flavor mirrors the nose and despite the great hop flavors, it never verges into bracing bitterness... just enough pale malt to help the hops coat the palate.... yummy and very drinkable. Body is a lite/medium with the expected carbonation.
