Bomber, golden copper with a thin white head. Aromas of straw, and melon, not pungent. This is pretty darn clear for an unfiltered beer. Taste is on the weak side for an IPA, light malt not very hoppy, very malty. Just OK.

RumRunner101 (794) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Copper pour, white head. Aromas of mango, tangerine, rum dipped spruce tips. Fruity, with a sweet, bready malt backing. Lingering bitterness. Really good.

Stizz19 (60) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
Poured from a bomber. Hazy golden color with thick off-white foam. Smells like orange and other citruis fruits. Tastes like a mixture of citruis fruits and a fairly hoppy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Amber colour, thin head, bright fresh tree hops, the body has a bit of fizziness, with a decent amount of hops, fresh citrus and just, balanced IPA.

brontebeach (158) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2014
From a bottle pours golden honey with off white head that thins with some lacing. Tangerine nose makes way to carbonated zing on the palate with a nice refreshing dose of hops in the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gerbeer (1838) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark clear copper with full head. Aromas of pink grapefruit, tropical fruit, rubber, and toasted malts. Flavors of pine and grapefruit juice. Long bitter finish.

Recommended by Crit, and I thank him for that!

A 650 ml bomber from 8th St Liquor Store in New Westminster. New labeling compared to the displayed image, with a boost in ABV to 7.5. A beautiful somewhat cloudy orange in color with a golden creamy head. Big bitter hop on the nose. Bitter and citrus hop on the tongue. A bit sweet about mid-swill, but a bitter finish. A very robust, hop-forward imperial IPA. A winner!

pictoman (551) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2014
Poured from 650mL bottle. Clear, orangey yellow with white head. Medium hop aroma mixed with bready caramel malt. Same taste. Mild bitterness, light-medium body. Flavours balance well, but little ’safe’ (read: a bit boring).

Purchased from the brewery in Tofino. Looks great - copper orange. Smooth hops flavour if that makes sense. Doesn't have the bitter bite to it. Citrus notes on the nose. A good IPA worth trying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
