Amber/copper pour with large off white head. Aroma of caramel, malts, citrus and hops. Taste of malts, toffee, slight citrus and a strong hop finish. Medium bodied and lower carbonation, slightly chewy mouthfeel and a little cloying, long hop finish.

Effervescent aroma with mainly hoppy and citrus scents. Copper brown appearance with thin white head. Decent blend of malt and bitterness. Bitter on the palate. Ok but not my favorite IPA.

Aroma: fragrant hoppu aroma with hints of clove Taste: very true to modern ipa’s; the cascadian hops hot you immediately and leave the bitterness to end. Maltiness is hard to detect Appearance: clear light brown body with retaining lace head

33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada. Light copper colour, thin head. Bright metallic aroma, come resinous hops and a background of breadiness. Balanced flavour, nothing overwhelming, malt coming through then a sharpness on the finish.

Dark red to brown pour... white head that disappears quickly. Beautiful aroma that really makes this a true IPA. Taste is bitter enough to call it an IPA, a tad watery, nothing too significant though. Absolutely no complaints about this IPA, it’s nicely bitter, and it’s what you expect out of an IPA. Yes, there are better choices around, but this is definitely worth a try.

A good ipa brewed close to home. A English style ipa that I like even though I’m a bigger fan of the American style. A good Carmel malt background balances out this ipa that has a nice dark brown color. I enjoyed this brew and will again for that price

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Aroma is grapefruit and caramel with some floral notes. Taste is grapefruit hop bitterness with an underlying caramel malty sweetness. A nicely balanced brew with a medium body and adequate carbonation. Not quite as nice as some of the IPA’s from our neighbors to the South, but still a satisfactory brew that deserves a taste.

Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
A decent IPA. The bottle I had said 6% however. A nice orange-gold pour, slightly hazy. Head was thin. The aroma was corn flakes and hops. No telling that this is an IPA. The flavour is average for an IPA, crunchy malt and citrusy hops.
