Aroma is one of beers most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.

Pour on tap, clear golden pour, thin white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, slight skunky notes, hints of grain. Taste was a mix of grass, grain, skunky mineral notes, finishing slightly dry.

RobertDale (5678) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 18, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Comes a pale gold with an average white head. Aroma and taste of malt, grain, and a bit of citrus. Bartender related that this IPA has around 14 IBUs. Interesting.

berkshirejohn (6170) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2016
On tap at Halifax Airport, NS. Pale, frothy and almost tasteless - the Canadian equivalent of Greene King IPA - that is, an IPA by name only.

deyholla (10391) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of earthy grains, straw and a hint of grass. Flavor is similar with lots of grains and hay with some straw supporting.

This is ok but not as good as Moosehead from out east. Typical commercially produced Canadian beer. I would call it a lager.

I wouldnt call it an India Pale.... more like a blond ale from the school of bad mass produced Canadian beer from the 80s/90s

One of my first IPA's. I've been drinking this for years in Canada, before IPA became popular. Have had this from cans and on tap but this time it was a tall boy in Aurora. Easier to drink than many of today's popular IPA. At 5% ABV this beer is definitely sessionable. A little sweet and malty but good hops too. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,33 bottle at a bar in canada. - Wow, how do they even dare to call this an india pale ale. Tastes like a generic macrobrew but slightly more bitter. Its okay to make macrobeers, but at least dont lie in the name.

12 ounce bottle from ferris. Thanks! The beer is a clear yellow with a white head of foam. Aroma is grainy. Sweet and grainy taste. Medium carbonation and body.
