tiggmtl (4544) - 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. Augustine’s.

cmacklin (1243) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2017
355ml bottle. (6.3% ABV) Pours a clear gold-orange with a medium, foamy, long lasting, white head that laces. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, peach, mango, pineapple, orange, pine and sweat. Sweet flavour of biscuit malt, caramel, grapefruit, orange and pine resin with a dry, bitter hop finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Not bad.

3.2
pintbypint (3732) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2017
355ml brown bottle. Yellow, clear, head is thin but creamy. The nose has light orange peels. Taste - decent citrusy hop character, orange peel, soft grapefruit, neutral malts. Orange peels and grapefruit in the finish. A basic drankable IPA.

2.6
jksipa (992) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2017
On tap at Rosie’s House, Whistler. Clear medium copper under a small short lived white head that leaves nice tight lace all the way down. Nose is butterscotch with some grassy and floral notes and a touch of fruit. Flavour is similar with a medium sweetness and lighter bitterness and the butter being quite distracting. Mouth is medium slick with average carbonation. Meh.

3.1
pictoman (1172) - Vancouver, 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.

2.9
IPAGuru18 (4) - Whistler, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2017 does not count
Nice floral aroma, palate is smooth like a lager, a bit too sweet. Doesn’t really cut it to be an IPA

3.2
luttonm (6554) - 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.

2.8
fiery1 (1500) - 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

3.4
Lagerboy (2221) - 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)

2.5
Cinctus (206) - - AUG 12, 2015
Draught at the brewery. Pours very golden, little head. Little aroma to speak of. Good bitterness and hops. Nothing remarkable.
