Clear golden color with white head. Aroma has some butter biscuits and resiny hops and some overripe tropical fruits. Taste follows with buttery notes but not in a bad way at all. Towards the finish it gets quite bitter with lingering grapefruit notes. Medium body and carbonation. Quite good overall, a more old school take on an IPA but I really enjoyed it.

dandeman (1101) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2017
Bouteille de 650 ml. Pamplemousse, fruit de la passion et légères notes de sapin en olfactif. Profil malté de caramel et biscuit en sourdine. Puissance en demi-ton. De couleur dorée tirant sur le ambré, le liquide est très clair et développe une bonne mousse semi rocailleuse qui tient longtemps. Amertume mordante aux notes de sapinage et de fruit de la passion se terminant en une légère astringence. Le malt supporte bien avec ses tons de léger caramel et de céréales. Pourrait être plus complexe. Bonne sans plus.

Braudog (6898) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2017
Bottle. Light-to-medium orange-amber. Frothy top. Both woodsy and fruity, this is a good compromise westie, with a wet, marshy charcter overall. (#6836, 11/23/2017)

Capa (3612) - DC, Washington DC, USA - NOV 21, 2017
Pale golden orange with a rocky white head. Light palate. Hop forward with plenty of tropical and melon notes and a very light malt backbone. Lingering bitterness without getting too dry in the finish. A flavorful and hop filled IPA that carries a light profile throughout.

I have not had many Canadian IPA's, but this is legit. Hops are big without sacrificing balance and palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great IPA bold taste with a long hop finish. One of my favourites. Great beer for a good price. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikkopen (1197) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2017
650 ml bottle. Hazy yellow colour, thick white head. Sweetish aroma of grapefruit, malt, mangoes, notes of pine. The taste is malty, with a note of caramel, grapefruit, and a lingering, herbal and resiny hoppy finish. Very tasty.

AndyW68 (1641) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 22, 2017
Light haze to a straw yellow pour with a light but stick white head. Aroma is malty pine. Taste follows nose. Fruit pine and malt.nice light bitter bite at the end.

jbruner (5448) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2017
Pours a clear golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of bready malts and piney hops. Taste follows, solid west coast IPA with moderate bitterness. Decent.
