355ml can from LCBO. Served in a tulip. Pours a transparent orange-brown, fine beige head. Minimal carbonation. Aroma is super hoppy, wow. Hop hop hop hop hop. More subtle notes of orange, pine, vinegar, and candy. Palate: Medium bodied, fizzy, very dry, biting finish, but still somewhat refreshing. Taste: Bitter! Definitely an amazing IPA. Lots of complex flavour. Better hope you like hops!

Can from Beers of the World. Aroma of floral and pine hops. Something tasted off imo.

Deliciously hoppy as expected. Great mouthfeel and loveable aroma. Clean colour

Good aroma. A strong IPA with the signature "weedy" taste. This is what I'd expect from the IPA so it works for this ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrus, resin and that B.C. sweetness. Pine, caramel and a bit of mango too.

Surprisingly good for a canned IPA. Maybe canned beer is not bad for IPA..?

Frudel (252) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2017
500ml can. The can pours a orange liquid with a white head. Hops, resin and sweet caramel malt on the nose. Taste is residual sweetness, caramel malt, resin hops with a bitterness finish. Very refreshing, cannot really feel the 6.5%, medium body, perfect carbonization .

Can @ Thirsty Singapore. Orange brown, reasonable head. Sweet malty aroma. Candy malt flavour. Smooth with sweet aftertaste. Too sweet & malty for an IPA.

Appearance: Pours a nice orange body that’s semi-clear with a huge foamy head that lasts quite long and clings to the glass with ease. Smell: Some definite piney goodness with some citrus and a touch of sweetness at the end. A bit of resin and caramel(?). The aroma is unrelenting and is probably the best feature of this beer. An IPA cannot smell better. Taste: Not as bitter as i would have thought and that surprised me a little. Still, the taste is solid with some ripe mango, a reserved pine presence and a lip smacking finish. Some rind a little near the end like licking the peel of a lemon or lime and just a touch of spice. Mouthfeel: Quite smooth actually and not at all the hop bomb i thought it would be. It has a sticky, resin-like feel to it but in a good way.
