tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, - APR 4, 2012
Cascade signature is strong in the nose with plenty of grapefruit apparent. Clear golden body is topped by a light fizzy white head that recedes to a partial cover. Flavour is somewhat grainy with moderate bitterness. Medium light body with strong prickly carbonation. Very dry. Sampled on tap at St. Augustines.

pictoman (1067) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2017
Poured from 355mL bottle. Clear golden orange with minimal white head. Light resinous hops with sweat and biscuit malt. Mild sweetness and carbonated water. Sticky texture, but flavour dissipates a little fast. Not your typical Vancouver IPA, but very average nonetheless.

IPAGuru18 (3) - Whistler, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2017 does not count
Nice floral aroma, palate is smooth like a lager, a bit too sweet. Doesnt really cut it to be an IPA

luttonm (5912) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Tap in Vancouver, BC. Thin foam, clear darker orange. Fairly citrus heavy hop, not bad. Body is a little thick and heavy. Sticky sweet. Not bad.

fiery_1 (861) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2016
07/25 from Double Blind IPA tasting. Growler, light brown in colour. Light grassy nose. Some heat in finish. Astringency? Placed 19th

Lagerboy (2157) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2015
355 ml bottle. Clear orange copper, mostly fading off-white foam. Aroma of citrus hop and c-malt, faintly floral. Lightly bitter herbal citric hop taste, sweet forest fruitiness, easy caramel malt. Softer carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Solid. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Cinctus (201) - - AUG 12, 2015
Draught at the brewery. Pours very golden, little head. Little aroma to speak of. Good bitterness and hops. Nothing remarkable.

Clear golden color, white head. Malty, a bit hoppy taste. Light hoppy aftertaste. Medium light mouthfeel, low to medium low bitterness. Hoppy, light citrus scent.

Ferris (14770) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2015
Draft - Sweet caramel and pine notes, clear gold with a decent white head. Aromatic and perfumy pine, sweet caramel and a nice light finish. Pretty surprisingly good.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle. Label states ABV 6.3%. Pours clear orange with no head, but some decent lacing. Aroma is lacking in IPA style, more biscuit than anything. Flavor a bit better, pine and floral notes. Watery/light mouthfeel and not much bitter finish.

Oakes (17093) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Draft @ St. Augs. Candyish, hazy, sweet, cloying...ok a little hop taste but I had this hop candy once and that is what this reminds me of.
