3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark yellow with a fluffy head and spotty lacing. Strong citrus and pine hops. Almost a sweet grapefruit with some toasted malts. Alcohol comes out a little in the flavors. Ends off very fruity.
Draught at Whistler Brewhouse, Whistler, BC, Canada.mcberko (18434) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2010
Clear golden colour with small white head.
Fruity bitter hoppy aroma.
Sweet malt and fruity bitter hops in quite balanced flavour.
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a pale light yellow - not reminiscent of an IPA. Aroma of citrus, grains and hops. Flavour of hops, pine and floral notes. Didn’t care for this too much. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2010
Bottle, hand pour, special procurement. Hazy light amber with small off-white head. Brightly floral cannabis aroma. Hop esters are lingering on the palate. Long finish. Excellent bright pine and floral hops with great toasted malt to boot. Good stuff! One of the better BC IPAs! swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2010
Draft in Whisler. Decent PNW hop aroma, sort of a hybrid english/american IPA. Medium bitterness. Not bad. Pretty well balanced, enjoyed during the nail biting USA v. Switzerland game Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 8, 2010
This one tastes like a standard IPA. Is there hops? Sure. Are they unique, really defined and well balanced? No overly. There was a curious cinammon hint in this that was completely unexpected. Cinammon is a nice edition to a beer but not overly fitting for this particular style. Nose was rather silent.....yeasty instead of bursting with hops.

Very good IPA, aroma is a restrained hoppy one, flavour is a initial malt which is also restrained but definately present followed through with a nice resinous hoppy finish that is good. turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2009
On Tap. Clear and copper with decent head that dissipates to a ring quickly. Mild hop aroma. Taste is of bitter, resinous hops over fairly rich caramel malt. Carbonation is about right. Quite a decent IPA GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. The menu said 7% ABV, 60 IBU’s. Poured a hazy medium orange color. The head was sticky, white, and left some nice lace on the glass. Attractive aroma of citrus and pine. Mmmm. Light to medium bodied with moderate to assertive hop bitterness that peaked at about 6-7 out of 10. The flavor was hop dominated and included citrus (lemon & orange) and pine elements. Some pale malts hid quietly in the background. Nice IPA. Best beer I tried at this place. CapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2008
(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub. Lasting white with mild orange. Great pine hop base, cascade perfume. Very fun. The only one of the lot worth having - and it was very good at that. 7/4/8/5/16fiulijn (20992) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2008

(Draught) Sampled at Dix X-mas Xtreme Caskival 2007. Pours near headless with a cloudy orange body. Nose of peaches, apricot and orange pine. Meduim orange tartness with a good pine finish.
Draught at the brewpub, simply as IPA, probably not the same
Hazy deep blond color; creamy head. Nice hop aroma, toffee flavor, well bitter and good aromatic hops. Compared to the Bitter, it’s less fruity, it has a lighter body, but a stronger (and more resiny/oily) hopping. Very good.
