Nice golden pour with a small white head. Piney grapefruit nose. Flavor starts with sweet malt and grapefruit flesh. In mid sip are where the problems start. The excellent grapefruit flavor gets very pithy and harsh bitterness takes over and muddles all of the wonderful flavors that it started with. Medium body with proper carbonation. This beer was close to being excellent, however it fell short of the hype that I have heard

Can. Huge nose of bitterness. Lots of pine and citrus. Taste is full of pine and citrus. Well balanced body. Excellence in a can.

On tap at Central City Brew Pub. Pours orange/gold. Aroma of hops, citrus, grapefruit. Quite a floral flavour, well balanced hops - not too harsh. Easy on the malt. Beautiful.

Can, courtesy of Enjoyit. A hazy, golden-orange beer with a small, off-white head. Citrusy, sweet aroma with some pink grapefruit. Bitter flavor with citrus, pink grapefruit juice and some malty sweetness. Hints of caramel. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated. Overall, a bit sharp bitterness, but a nice beer indeed, I bet it has surprised and frightened some people expecting a pale lager when they picked their canned beer. 110129

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2011
500 ml can from private order. Pours nice deep copper, big frothy white head, tonnes of lacing. Aroma and taste are well balanced sweet caramel malt and lots, I mean lots, of resiny, earthy hops. Dynamite IPA!

Pours sparkling clear amber with thin head. Aroma screams "drink me!" And hops - fresh tropical fruits, plus grapefruit. In the mouth I get the same tropical/citrus hops, with a bit of a malt backbone kicking in halfway through. Long lingering bitterness to finish. Lovely.

Tap in Vancouver. FANTASTIC IPA!! This reminds me of a fantastic West Coast style IPA. Big hop aroma and flavor. Big citrus and floral head with a nice mix of malt and hops on the finish. Wonderful stuff. Better than any other beer I tried in Vancouver! YUM!

A very enjoyable IPA indeed, very malty and full flavored, nice bitterness and hop profile as well, very sticky and piney, sweet and citrus tones as well. One of the better IPAs out there in my opinion, especially if you like them sticky.
