Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2008
12 ounce bottle. The name of the person who shared this beer will be withheld to protect the innocent. Hazy apple juice color w/ no head. Aroma is melon, pear, caramel and something very, very wrong. Totally oxidized with a very papery taste. Some subtle hops and a slightly vegetal taste. Completely flat. Total trainwreck.

Overall, not too bad. Very hoppy and bitter like a good IPA should be. There is an overpowering taste of the beer however. The mouthfeel was smooth and slightly complex. Altogether, this is a fairly good brew from Wild Rose. I am hoping to make a trip to their brewery soon.

How bitter is this supposed to be? I think there might be some leftover dish soap in my glass. If not, this beer is just okay. If so, well then my face is certainly red.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2008
[795-20071102] Tap @ Wild Rose (Calgary, AB). Hoppy grass aroma has a bit of citrus pips. Clear, amber orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Hoppy bitter citrus flavour is a little grassy. Medium body. Nice repeatable hoppy beverage.

GregClow (3194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2007
Bottle. Orange-amber with a small white head. Medium mouthfeel. Nice aroma and flavour of caramel malt and grapefruit hops. No big "wow" factor, just a easy drinking IPA with a nice hoppy finish.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival 2007 in Victoria on September 8th, 2007. Your average IPA. Orange with strong malt balance. Okay... perhaps a tad plain.

RobBestwick (833) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2007
Bottled. Hoppy and peppermint aroma. Bronze hue with a small frothy head. Very hoppy with some peppermint and caramel/toffee notes and hints of apples. Well laced. A balanced and enjoyable IPA.

Braudog (6342) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2007
Draft pint at the brewery taproom; Chestnut amber with a solid wall of foam on top. Fruity and velvety with a solid hop bitterness and firm malt foundation. Excellent beer in the English vein, me thinks. Cheerio! (#2870, 5/13/2007)

Amber colour with decent head and some lacing. Moderate hops. Nice malt. Dry finish.

Boutip (5902) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2006
Bottle: Poured a hazy brown color ale with a medium white bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of citrus hops is definitely present but not as dominant as a standard IPA. Taste has some shy metallic hops, which are not that pleasant with some caramel malt. A bit weak in the hops department and overall lacking character to make this truly enjoyable.
