3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Nice reddish gold pour. Aroma hits most of the hop spectrum, from citrus to pine. The flavor centers a little more heavily on the pine/resin side, with a solid malt backbone to balance things out. All around a very solid IPA, and probably my favorite offering yet from Lift Bridge.
This IPA pushes the boundaries (BJCP American IPA top-7.5% ABV/70 IBU) and delivers what you would expect. This aggressively hoped IPA awakens the senses with aromas of citrus, fruit, and pine but will bombard your taste buds (with hops, a subtle malt sweetness and notes of caramel) that will put a smile on your face. Available for a limited time on draft.Formerly known as Hop Prop IPA. Pretty good IPA.

Light tawny color with a tallish, light beige head. If this would have had some lace a 4 would have been in order. Nice mix of grass, citrus and pine in the aroma. Backdrop has some caramel, malt, and lightly toasted malt. Sweet start, with some pale and toasted malt, along with some mango. Bitterness and acidity work their way in with some white grapefruit. Finish is rather dry with some wood and pine tar. 5/13

Bottle from Ron . THanks Ron. Pretty standard, seems on the English side with the caramel. Not super dry or super hoppy tasting perhaps as it is headed towards IIPA category. Decent. jksipa (1034) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2017

Pours a very hazy bright orange color with a small but well retained head & good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is grapefruit & orange zest with a bit of pine and some caramelly malt.
The flavor is lightly bitter and big on fruity hops. It’S got a pretty serious sweetness & lots of honey and caramel flavor.

12 oz bottle pours orange with fluffy 2 finger head thick lacing with a very hoppy aroma. Taste is bitter hop up front with a nice malt after, very easy drinking. tmoreau (4734) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2016
On tap at the brewery and served as part of a six flight platter, showing a clear, medium gold color, with a frothy layer of soft white foam, and doily-like lacing. The nose was some bready/crusty malt, lively citrus, a touch of resin, and a bit of fruit preserves sweetness. Medium bodied, with good carbonation, moderate citrus & rind bitterness, and a presentably dry finish. A decent style offering. Bartzilla (624) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Had this in cans and it’s great. I didn’t pour it into a glass, but I gave it a 5 on appearance because the label is nicely done. I find this to be a well rounded IPA with many citrus notes and a perfect malt back end. I will drink this again.
