Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours a clear yellowish gold with a huge white frothy head that last forever and leaves lots of lace. Aroma is a huge citrus, grassy burst with some pine. Taste is grapefruit and pine with a great balance of malts. Bitterness isnt huge but its present and blends very well with the beer. Phillips you have yet another gem!!

slimspady (219) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012
A full-fledged hop assault on the senses, right out of the bottle. Dark yellow pour, white head. Obviously hoppy, but a little sweetness in the finish. Not much bitterness. Very well done. Phillips best work IMO. 052412

RichardGretton (4697) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
[email protected], Canada. Vibrant golden beer with strong smooth white head. The aroma is fruity with a touch of lavender and dry. Bthe flavour is very dry with a well hopped watery body and finish. Overall a nice very well hopped dry beer, plenty of hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle bought in Wistler, BC. Beer pours clear golden color with an off white retained head. Aroma is very hoppy with citrus and pine notes. Taste is very bitter. Bitter, bitter, bitter and I like it!!! Quite an excellent IPA!

Pours deep yellowish gold with a small white head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy. Lots of hop and malt flavours but not overly bitter. Crisp carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel. A well balanced IPA that has arguably set the standard for western Canada.

drjay44 (3527) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2012
12 oz. can. Shared with multiple others at brew club. Pours a medium, well retained, white head, over a slightly hazy dark yellow (SRM 4) body..........nose is pine, grapefruit, toffee/caramel.....taste is pine, heavy grapefruit peel ,medium heavy toffee/caramel, lingering medium bitterness.....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, carbonation adds a light tingle. This is a typical "North American" style IPA with the usual nice balance of malts and hops and the predictable hop malt flavors and aromas. This is not to denigrate either the style or this brew, it is just a predictable result. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2012 Bottle - Flowery hop aroma with a little caramel and spice. Clear gold with minimal quick dissipating head. Tastes just like it smells, with a nice bitterness that lingers. A great local Canadian beer.
