can. pours hazy medium dark golden with a small off-white cap offering some retention and lacing. citrusy lemongrass, harsh pine, toasted caramel maltiness, some peaches, resin, woodsy piney alcohol, clean yeast though. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; assertive but not unbalanced spicy-citrusy-piney finish. tamed shy hops, oldschool as well. nah.

(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 29 Sep 2007) Pale amber colour with brief white head. Fruity nose with notes of dried apricots, rubbery hops, grapefruit and pineapple. Fruity, hoppy taste with grapefruit, pineapple and loads of citrussy hops in the finish. Hops are more evident at the back of the tongue than in the nose. Very nice and hoppy beer. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
Bottle at ’December at DougShoemaker’s 2005’ -- courtesy of OKBeer & jerc. Pours a clear golden-orange with a small white head. Fresh citrus hops aroma and flavour along with some caramel malt. Medium bodied. Nice, tasty, well balanced IPA. BuckeyeBoy (7680) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2011
On tap at Propeller in Halifax. Pours out golden topped with a tall fluffy head. Aroma was of citrus hops, grape fruit juice, light pine, and a good amount of toast. Taste was more of the grapefruit citrus hops, some lemon zest and a good malt backbone. Not a over the top IPA just a casual drinker.

Thanks to 1FastSTi for the Nova Scotia connection! Clear, bright yellow pour with a short cap of white head and some patchy lacing. Floral and leafy hops provide a pleasant, but safe nose.. with caramel, toffee, and some alcohol wafting through intermittently. Flavor was also OK.. but with nothing close to exceptional going for it... caramel and toffee base with a predominantly floral bitterness. Medium bitterness and low-medium body. Slightly tacky lighter fruits at the finish. Glad to have tried it. Thanks, Blake!

Amber gold, fizzy white head on top. Refreshing hop aroma, citric, berry nose. Grapefruit like flavour on front citrus hops dominant. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2006
Bottle shared by 1FastSTi at the 3/25/06 MIlwaukee tasting: Pours a clear copper bronze with a thin white ring of head. Sweet, candy-like hoppy and toasty sugary sweet caramel malty aroma. Body starts with sweet mildly sugary earthy caramel flavor with some light diacetyl and earthy English hops. An ok English styled IPA but could use some more balance.

Bottle (650ml). Courtesy of jerc. Just what I need to combat my 10th day of an unshakable cold - a bomber of a strong down-east IPA! Poured clear copper with a small foamy white head. Aroma of orange juice, mild spruce resin, solid caramel malt, but I get an odd sickly sweet note, reminded me a bit of that "fruit" flavour added to kiddie medicine, or better yet those candy necklaces *girls* used to wear/eat (my wife claims it smells just like a "proper English sweet shop"). Taste is solid - solid toasty malt, solid tea/floral/juicy fresh hops - there’s almost a pot pourri feel here. Mouthfeel is slightly astringent, flat and juicy - by the end of the bottle I was mourning the fact I only had one - one of the nicest NorAm UK-style IPAs I’ve had - eat your liver, Alexander Keith’s "IPA." 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2006
Bottle: Darker golden, fairly clear, moderate off-white foamy head, fairly nice lacing.   Soft bready malts along with a nice dose of hop bitterness.   Seems a bit caramely even.   Slight buttery tea leaf on first sip.   Somewhat stale hop flavor.   Soft malt base.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish seems a bit dirty, like bad water or something.   Tiz okay, but very low on the IBU scale.   Not crisp, but still decent.   Thanks jerc for the bottle! ben4321 (6510) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Location: Draft at Maxwell’s Plum, 7/7/13
Aroma: The nose has some fruity hops to it and some malty notes as well
Appearance: It pours a hazed golden-orange color with a small white head and lace
Flavor: The has a pretty nice hop flavor, some citrus, and some light sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a clean, easy drinking feel, and a dry finish
This was probably the best thing that I had at Maxwell Plum’s. It isn’t an amazing IPA or anything, but it is a more than solid example of the style. Nice stuff.
