355 ml can poured at home. Hazy amber in color with a medium head. Nice hop smell and bitter aftertaste. I drank this after a Big Rock IPA and thought it was a much better homage to the genre. Thoroughly drinkable! RD400F (226) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Can to Sam Adams fancy pint glass, beer pours a transparent orange-amber with a small white head. Aroma is weak...cut grass, quite floral, some citrus, pine, tree sap. Nothing to write home about. Taste is a nice hop bitterness with some caramel/toffee to back it up. Beer is very palatable and refreshing. Carb medium, thin bodied. Complexity is on the simple side. Overall, not too shabby, good execution, but nothing that makes it stand out. Forgettable. Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours a clear orangish copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine, grapefruit and sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, pine, citrus, caramel and sweet pale malts... Hops and malts are in great balance and there?s no astringency on the finish. Great well balanced ipa. exeter (535) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Pours a dark copper colour, thumb of fluffy head with solid retention and some nice spotty lacing. Tastes of citrus, pine, and balanced hop bitterness and malt. Excellent. Iphonephan (6989) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
From a bomber shared. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Light citrus nose. Flavors of spruce resin. Relatively thin mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

Draft at the brewery. Gold and bright, love the choices of hop and malt with pale malt and dry bitter hop profile with no estery hop and not a chewy PACNW IPA, it’s actually pale and more British in character, yay! Another that the cans/bottles don’t do it justice.

Darkish gold, not a very expressive nose, touch if berry. Fuller body, more malts than the pale, not a lot of hop character or bitterness, but the malts are actually really nice, with some good honeyish, biscuity character. Points off for not really being an IPA - not even by 1990s standards - but it’s a good beer. aumax1 (303) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
pinte de blonde prise au bar. arome de houblon cascade et de miel au gout petite amertume mais bien équilibré avec des notes de miel piscator34 (2534) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of pinecone, husky and caramel sweet malts, and a bit of floral hop. Light bodied with a grainy-caramel malt flavor profile. Some vague citrus notes are in play as well, but they’re pretty muted. Chunky bitterness. Not great overall. northropfrye (3619) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
Light pale orange body with some off white head and lacing. Tropical fruit and resin aroma. Taste is fruity with some hoppy bitterness in the end. Not a bad IPA.
