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

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.

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.

Pours a clear amber colour with a big sticky off white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is citrus, sweet caramel malts, and grass. Flavour is mild bitterness that lingers, resin, grapefruit, some sweet caramel and slightly metallic. Kind of a beginner ipa where the malts come out way more than most and the hops are a bit weak.

Tap @ the brewery. Not particularly pale nor hoppy, though there’s enough grapefruit and pine to make it tasty.

Pours a hazy copper with a great long staying off-white head. Aroma has a lot of cascade lemon/orange citrus with a mild amount of grassy character and a finishing note of some toasted malt. Flavor is good with a stronger grassy flavor than the nose indicated with a mild lemony citrus middle and a smooth toasty ending. Body is modest with a lot of fine carbonation lending an almost creamy feeling. Overall a very good, drink every day type of IPA.
