good stuff from one of the craft breweries from the province. However, i seem to remember this one having more bite and a more complex mouthfeel but hey, it a solid IPA. hints of pine cones, some grassy bitterness and good mix of malts. This use to be one of my everyday IPA’s till dieu du ciel came along.

Thanks to my father for sharing this beer. Bottled the second week of September 2010.
The beer pours a golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is very strong. The first whiff is very similar to juicy fruit gum, but I also get some flowers and bready malt notes. The flavor is very fruity. I get some bubble gum, perfume, flowers and a little bit of pine. Low to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The beer is very good, but it got a little hard to drink near the end. dashiell22 (51) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Fell in love with this one during a week-long Nova Scotia vacation. Found it nearly everywhere we went. Pine, citrus, sticky mouthfeel, followed by a long bitter finish. Tasted to me a lot like a West Coast style IPA. Fought the urge to bring a case home, something I now regret.

great sticky lacing, and fluffy white head. Aroma of resinous, piney, citric hops, and a little malt. Pretty one sided here.
hints of orange, and the flavor is quite a bit more balanced, the malt makes a distinct appearance. the finish is very bitter, and really clings to the back of my throat. A nice IPA. barncatmatt (2286) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2010
bomber shared with jsprime. his bottle. pours slightly hazed orange with a moderate slightly off white head. aroma of pale malt, citrus hops and a touch of cara malt. the flavour is the same. i feel like ive had this beer 1000’s of times before. very typical ipa. good but nothing special.

On Tap. A solid starter IPA but pales in comparison to the heavy hitters in the field. Maybe I’m just spoiled. pintbypint (3641) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2010
341ml brown bottle. Golden with a bit of haze. Small but creamy and lasting white cap that leaves just a touch of lacing. Aroma has sweet orange, caramel and a touch of sharper citrus. Caramel malt background, orange/citrusy middle. Finishes with grapefruit, moderate bitterness hangs around. Aftertaste is a bit grassy and grapefruity. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent, rounded IPA. patricks110 (2496) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2010
A solid IPA. Piney and citrusy aroma. Slight hops aroma as well. Dark amber gold colour with finger of white head. Taste is sweet citrus and pine. Little bit of hops. Very nice and very drinkable.
