3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear pale amber with one finger of loose light tan head diminishing rapidly to nothing, minimal lacing. (3/5) Nose is citrus and piney hops, caramel malt. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet and moderately strong bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5)
Not too bad. A little unsubtle, but drinkable. Probably the best tap option here, other than plain old Guinness. (12/20)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange/amber colour. Aroma is filled with notes of C-hops and citrus with a hint of caramel. On the palate that malty/caramel backbone provides a good backdrop to some hoppy bitterness and flavour profile. Not as bad an IPA as some of those rated here thought it was.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy copper, with frothy white head. Smell is caramel, nuts, honey, spruce, and citrus. Taste is sweet caramel, honey and toast, followed by a powerful pine taste and finishes with a slight hint of citrus. Thick and sticky, with average carbonation on the palate. Decent local brew but lacks balance of flavours, which prevent it from becoming an excellent beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hoppy malty smell, weak notes of pine and citrus with some floral. Pours golden, slightly hazy with a frothy white head.
Tastes hoppy, sharp bitter, grapefruit peel, missing the malt backbone to round it out (IMO). Also tastes of burnt caramel and pine. Medium to heavy body, moderate carbonation, but too astringent to be great.
Like so many mediocre IPAs, this one is just too bitter at the end. It had a good start, but the finish is too astringent to be great. Saying that, it came from Alberta, and that in itself is a good sign.
