UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014
2014-07-03, draught at Stateside Craft, Vancouver, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Deep blond color, hazy, with small head. Mild malt and hop aroma, a bit fruity. Soft mouthfeel, moderately sweet, with nice malt flavor, hints of toffee, light-colored caramel, strong hopping, quite fruity and reasonably resiny too.
Nice, because the malts are not heavy and dark.

2013-12-20, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Hazy blond color with compact persistent head. The hop aroma has some animal side. Smooth mouthfeel, dry but nice malt flavor in the background, strong bitterness; the hops are resiny, and a bit fruity and animal.
Good and fresh IPA.

mcberko (19172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
On tap at Urban Family Public House, pours a hazy golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, dry biscuity malt, and piney floral hops. Flavour of dry biscuity malts and dry floral hops with a great crispness to it. Tons of depth, with a very dry palate. Extremely drinkable and thirst-quenching. Very delicious stuff!

Oakes (19010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
Slightly hazy blonde with a fairly big head. Aroma is spicy, lightly piney, lightly fruity, with a dash of pale malt. Lots of bitterness, herbal and dry like pilsner, touch of zwickelbier yeastiness, light floral hops late... Like a jacked up Kout 10... Really cool...seems more like an hommage to those central European hop bombs, only borrowing the IPA name to move a few more pints in the PNW.

brokensail (16660) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Clear golden pour with white foam. Tons of orange, peach, and melon on the nose. Maybe a little on the sweet side... Some grape and grapefruit, as well. Not too much in terms of bitterness. Definitely some pale malt flavor and a slight sugary note. Good orange, grapefruit, and a hint of pine. Big time fruity hops and possibly esters. Pretty nice.
