On tap at MSBC. Copper colour with thin white foam. Aroma is mostly malty with soft citrus notes. Malty taste with nut and toasted notes, bit of citrus. Ok, but nothing I would revisit. KansaiBeerLvrs (5192) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 10, 2015
On tap at The Spings Taphouse Itaewon. Old Sailor’s IPA 5.6% pours a deep copper with a filmy beige head. Sweet malty backbone with a subdued hoppiness. More English than U.S. IPA with a sweet biscuity malt character with a crisp lightly butter finish. Pretty good. rejtable (2767) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
Pours clear brown/amber with a decent amount of head and some lacing. Nose is quiet, some tea. Flavours are English tea, light fruit, earthy bitterness. Taste med bitter light sweet. Medium somewhat sticky body with lively carbonation and lasting bitterness. Nice enough ESB. a_sully (457) - - JUN 6, 2014

Bomber. Gusher, opaque orange copper, off-white foamy head slowly settles. Aroma of caramel malt and citrus hop. Bitter herbal citrus hop taste, grapefruit, caramel malt base, bit of a resin bite. Lively carbonation, light-medium body, moderately hopped. Loses it’s oomph as it warms, finishes like a premium bitter. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

This beer doesn’t really strike me as an IPA... just not bitter enough. It has hints of many types of fruit... Ferris (15901) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2014 Bottle - Earthy hops with a strong malt backbone and some oddly sweet peach. Clear copper with a thick off white head. Dry, malty and resinous with touches of bitter grapefruit. Nice bitterness that follows a little too long into the finish. A passable IPA. Draft - Much the same as bottle. Gerbeer (3795) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark copper with medium head. Aromas of oranges and malts. Somewhat nondescript flavors of citrusy malts. Bitter finish. reebtogi (6315) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves a thin spotted lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and peach with some hints of caramel. Taste is caramel malty and peachy fruit sweetness with a grapefruit hop bitterness. Flavors are nicely balanced. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A really nicely done brew for the style and original enough to be a bit different than the other IPA’s out there. DeanF (2469) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2011
This was a balanced and reliable IPA - nothing special or to write home about but the taste struck a solid balance between the P and the A. I quite liked it, and would be great to drink in and out over months and months on the seas.
