This beer is a quintessential ipa.
Off the nose
Biscuit, malt and bread
on the backend:
Sweet, but well balanced
No shitty aftertaste
Good going down
The 7%abv is well masked
I had 4 beers and "feelin' it"
I definitely recommend this beer. This beer is the definition of a well balanced ipa.
I definitely enjoyed this beer. The drinkability exceeded my expectations.

Pours hazy amber with a generous creamy off-white head. Decent but light aroma of caramel and pine. Balanced flavor, but a bit too balanced for my taste. I find the hops profile to be somewhat lacking. While I certainly donít hate this beer, I consider it an average IPA.

The quintessential IPA. Enough malts to battle back against the amazing hop profile. An easy drinker that is staple of many craft beer enthusiasts.

Well put together IPA. Not overly bitter and a great aroma. I prefer the draft over the bottles, it's seems to promote the hops a little better.

Enjoyed this at a Scottish Pub in Savannah, GA. Strong floral aroma. My favorite so far.

bottle. Poured hazy amber with a creamy white head. Strong floral hop aroma. Full body, prickly carbonation, mouthfeel is thick with an astringent finish. Very fresh hop flavour, citrus and herbal notes with some bready malt.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a light beige head. Very fruit forward nose, citrus peel, resinous notes, tropical fruit, and a faint doughy note. As for taste, much lighter bodied than I was expecting, with fruit up front, mostly grapefruit, resinous notes, with more citrus in the finish. Good bitterness that doesnít overwhelm, and really well balanced. Add to that, the alcohol is hidden very well. Hey Ontario, get this in six packs RIGHT NOW!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my all time faves. Hazy bronze pour with vanishing off-white head. Big floral and citrus hop nose. Abundant sweet malt backbone. Grapefruit. Pine. Flower bouquet. Wonderfully bitter and perfectly sweet. Slick and smooth, soft carbonation. Absolutely delightful.

Smell is floral hops, citrus. Taste is clean crisp malty pine citrus hops. The 7% abv is hidden well. Almost as good as Sweetwater IPA :-)
