Citrus hops dominate. Pours a caramel colour with a nice tan head. Good looking beer. Balanced caramel malts with grapefruit citrus hops. Resin finish is lingering. A little thin in the body but overall, clean character. Highly drinkable, which isn’t a great thing for an IPA (I think). Resin bitterness is a bit too powerful.
50 cl can. Pours a clear amber with minimal white head. Aroma of caramel and hops. Palate is smooth and light. Needs a little more body but nice light Ipa. bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2017
Rating #2353 - 2016.02.29 - Can from @beerblast. Golden amber pour with a creamy white head that bubbles away quickly.Very fragrant with mild citrus (pink grapefruit, lemon) in the aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium carbonation, and assertive bitter finish - but not overpowering. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2016

Pours clear copper color with a large off-white head. Resin on the nose, slight metallic notes, orange, old hops. Flavor is nutty, malty, licorice notes, distant pineapple, dried fruits, some hop notes, metal tones. A bit old, and feels like it.
Hazy ochre liquid, small head. Aroma of hops and fruits. Light body, little bit carbonation. Taste is bitter, with hints of peat.

Can from Loblaws. Clear amber body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of dried orange peel and caramel. Flavour of light hops, metal and tonic water. Thin body with a watery mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Weak and inoffensive. ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Pours amber with a decent head that leaves some lacing. Nose is grapefruit and pine. Flavour is malts and a bit of citrus, but watered down. Had potential but didn’t deliver. Kauge (1928) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 11, 2016
Can from LCBO. Dark amber. Caramelly and toffee-y overall character with resiny bitterness. A bit rough, not too well rounded. Not very keen on this. UM02 (366) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2016
Fairly standard IPA. Good but not exceptional. Amber colour, decent amount of hoppy bitterness and traces of smoke in the malt. Highly drinkable but not unique. UXO (1896) - CANADA - APR 4, 2016
Appearance: clear pale to medium amber with one fat finger of fluffy white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: resiny pine, pithy grapefruit, pale malt, tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (3/5)
Much better than their Crosswind Pale Ale. Actually a halfway decent example of an American IPA, with piney and citrusy hops leading the way over just enough pale malt to balance. Ends with a lingering resiny bitter finish. A little rough around the edges, perhaps, but a solid performer. (14/20)
