Clear light gold with some white head. Aroma is a light muddle of hops, and taste is the same, with a nice lagery malt bill that finishes malty, but clean with the well-blended hop presence throughout.

Pours a very dark black with a medium initial tan head that slowly shrinks to a good ring and leaves a fair amount of lace. Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa, floral, citrus, and sweet caramel. Flavour is roasted malts, cocoa, citrus, mild-medium bitterness, grass, and sweet caramel.

Bottle at my parents with my dad. Pour is hazy golden orange with a big white head and great lacing. Big lemon, bretty, orange peel, biscuit, pineapple, and bready aroma. Taste is tangy, grassy, bretty, some pineapple, lemons, biscuit, and white grapes with a semi-tart and sour finish. Meso Body with high carbonation. Definitely infected, but doesn’t necessarily ruin it for me.

650ml bomber. Pours a foggy orange colour. Taste like sweet pine with a bitter finish. Very refreshing IPA, would have it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vadie (1257) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Couleur de la cuivre avec un tête beige. Une arôme fort d’agrumes. Le goût est agrumes amer avec un peu du malt au début. Une bonne IPA. Assez typique pour les IPA de la région, mais une bonne example du style.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
On tap at The Lamplighter Vancouver. Beautiful clear deep red colour. Fresh pine and citrus as expected, the flavour is subtle for 7% and mighty enjoyable

3.3
cgar_brew (1) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 18, 2014 does not count
Moderate white head that fades quick. Pale golden color, clear but not brilliant. Fruity hop aroma dominates, stone fruit with a light malt sweetness. Medium-full body with moderate - high carbonation. Starts with a fair sweetness tha finishes dry, with a strong hop bitterness. Not the best IPA in the world but at a BBQ or after a long day, quite sessionable. Although the ABV can catch up with you.
