COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A trio perfectly blended hops packed (literally!) into the brew give this intensely flavorful beer incredibly bold aromas and moderately high bitterness. Balanced with caramel malt sweetness India Style Pale ales are copper in color and traditionally fortified with higher alcohol and lots of hops to preserve the beer for its long travels. Wonderfully big and bold hoppy flavors are a perfect pairing with spicy foods or for those looking for a beer to reward them with the complexity of flavors so relished by "hop head" beer lovers.

Scopey (7380) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Keg at National Beer Hall, Calgary. It pours hazy amber, with a small white head. The nose is orange, sweet tangerine, marmalade, passion fruit and faint hint of urine. The taste is orange, tangy marmalade, apricot, peach, sherbet, some caramel and pine, with a bitter-sweet finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Good flavour and balance. Definitely an above average IPA.

reebtogi (4368) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 13, 2012
Pint on tap at the newly open MKT in Edmonton pours an deep golden orange color with a small white head that leaves little lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and orange with some caramel malts and hints of pine. Taste is a bold grapefruit bitterness with some underlying fruity and malty sweetness. The hop profile certainly dominates this medium bodied beer which has some decent carbonation. A very well done IPA for the serious hop heads out there.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 RBAG summer 2012. From 946ml growler. Brassy orangey coloured beer with little signs of head. Some spicy piney hops in the aroma. Citrus and piney hops flavours, moving toward grapefruity in the finish. Medium body, good carbonation. Not super intense but pretty drinkable.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2012
From my first growler at andrew hilton. Bam! Hops in the nose, it smothers everything else. Good head, there was a ton of foam poured off the growler, thier CO2 system is a bit brand new. Great golden red/brown colour, the head fades but it IS a growler pour. Hard to taste the malts under all that heavy hops, but its a nice blend. Those hopps really last on the back of the tounge, lots of bitterness. A pretty good ipa.

Ferris (4972) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2012
Draft - Hoppy piney aroma, with an oddly sweet malt. Cloudy amber with a creamy medium head. Very floral and a piney bitterness. A bit of sweetness as well. Not bad but a little off balance.

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Draft 6 oz’er at the Missoula brewpub. An opaque orange beer. Sticky head. Drinks with a metallic, blood orange funkiness. Almost tart. Why do people throw hops ata beer and call it an IPA? (#4665, 7/5/2012)

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2012
Pint at Craft Beer Market in Calgary, AB on 06/14/2012. Colour: light red and medium orange with medium white head. Nose: Lots of forest notes, including pine, wet soil and vegetation. Touch of marachino cherry adds sweetness. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Quite hoppy but not much else to speak of beside pine-dominant hops. Needs to be a bit more complex.
