Loads of pungent, piney, citrusey hops give Tin Hat IPA a strong bitterness that is balanced with a malty body. Pair with strong flavours: curry, smoked meat, Gorgonzola cheese

Pours a hazy light brown with a small white head and a bit of lace. Aroma is caramel, and mildly fruity. Flavour is fruity, caramel, citrus, and mild bitterness. Not my favourite IPA.

mcberko (8040) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy dark orange amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney and citrusy hops, with an English hop quality, and a zesty malt base. Flavour brings out lots of piney hops, with secondary notes of citrus and dry crackery malt. Nice and piney. Finishes piney and slightly astringent. Much better than the average ratings suggest.

DuffMan (7338) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle, shared at the lake with Parksy, May long weekend. Very dark old-penny copper colour. Sweet caramel dominates the nose and the palate, with Del Monte fruit cocktail fruit character. Very little bitterness. A lightweight IPA to say the least; more an amber in my opinion.

Oakes (13135) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Dark amber...wow this is one the darkest IPAs I have seen. Aroma has a lot of lychee, with light amounts of orange zest, canned pears, spruce and maybe a dash of Special B. A fair bit of deep crystal chewiness, with a touch of earthy, resiny and slightly orangey hop. I’d call this is an imperial amber - nothing "pale" about this, but a good beer if you know what to expect.

bulldogops (1111) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
Rating #995 - February 18, 2014 - $7.29 CAD for a 650ml bomber from Coop. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with pine/lemon overtones. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and cakey malts dominating the flavour. Very much an english style PA but still very tasty.

Masterkush7 (575) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
Pours slightly hazy, dark amber, with a dirty off-white head. Aroma of grassy hops, butter, pine. Taste of toffee caramel, light to medium sweet, medium bitter. Soft carbonation, bitter, slightly metallic finish. Overall a decent beer, quite the thirst quencher. More of a British style IPA with high bitterness.
