Aroma is earthiness, some clove and straw apparent. Taste is a light sweet maltiness quickly consumed by hop character that is of clove, tanin, earthiness and citrus. Appearance is clear copper /brown with a fluffy pearl head that retains fairly well. RyanE (145) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
Thin, almost non-existent head. Brownish red pour. Faint malt, and hops predominate the nose. Dusty, rustic taste with hoppy finish. Doesn’t linger too long.

341ml brown bottle. Dark red pour, orange highlights. Small beige cap. Nose has some nut and caramel malt and light hops. Taste has some caramel and a bit of roasty rich malt, some metallic hops. Some lingering bitterness, bit of grapefruit hops. Overall an ok brew, if you like malt heavy IPAs this will appeal to you. I would have liked a little less malt richness. I’ve had this beer a few times in the past year or so and this seems heavier and richer than I remember. MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 Pours a dark amber, aroma is of hops. Taste and palate is entirely a strong hop flavor, not much else. Fizzy, high carbonation in this one. Bitter hop aftertaste.
Re-rating based on a few more samples at the brewery and bottles from the sampler pack. Actually has a decent complexity once you get a few. Nice floral hops, decent balance. Still too syrupy for the malts. Masterkush7 (581) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
From tap at brewery. Pours a clear dark brownish red with a thin tan head. Some floral notes. A deep amber malt balances out the hop bitterness well. It's a decent ipa. Happy to see more local brewers making my favourite style of brew JoeZasada (317) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brownish red with a thin tan head. Low carbonation. Sweet malty aroma with some floral hop notes. Taste: Moderate bitterness, earth hop notes. Not much for malt notes, minimal aromas. Finish: Bitter, some earthiness, crisp. Kind of a plain jane IPA. Would be improved with more aromatic and flavouring hops, and a tad more carbonation, and something in the malt notes underneath. Reimer96 (1778) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
Pours a clear dark amber with a big frothy off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, resin, some tropical fruits and a bit of caramel. Taste is grapefruit, tangerine and caramel. Fairly well banned with a medium carbonation and a bit of sweetness on the finish.
