Zoob (85) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 8, 2003
A very nice IPA, especially for western Canada, where sweet beers rule along with lifeless Macrobrews. Aroma: nice and hoppy usually floral but not overwhelming Appearence: a light amber and clear Flavor: Hoppy,light floral and citrus (grapefruit like) Palate: medium to full bodied, leaves you very satisfied. If you like Pac-Northwest beers this is a good choice.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, 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)

Cavie (3804) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Foggy orange pour with live yeast sediment. Hoppy aroma. Fat hoppy taste upfront. Sweet hops balance out the whole taste. Finish is solid and doesn’t dry out. Very good!

Masterkush7 (554) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
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

MunBro (401) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Pours a dark copper color. Nice white foam head, leaving lots of lacing. I was really surprised at the nice zesty hop bite. Love it.

TimE (3261) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 8, 2003
It is quite hoppy but also has a good amount of caramel malt and a smooth body to make it a well balanced IPA. Not as aggressive as PNW IPA, but the caramel malt add a freshing new twist.

RobBestwick (590) - 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.

2008-07-28, draught at the brewery, 7-4-7-5-14=37
Hazy light amber color, creamy head. Good american hops aroma, not too strong, with some caramel and a light cheesy touch (interesting). Good caramel flavor, strong bitterness, dry resins or hop oils too, and very light cheesy touch too. Very pleasant.

2008-07-27, draught at Ship and Anchor, Calgary, 6-3-7-4-14=34
Amber color. Light fruity hop aroma. It has some caramel flavor, light sweetness (I would like more), strong bitterness, with some nice hop oils, and strong final. Simple but pleasant.

Bendrixian (1131) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
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.
