COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A trio perfectly blended hops packed (literally!) into the brew give this intensely flavorful beer incredibly bold aromas and moderately high bitterness. Balanced with caramel malt sweetness India Style Pale ales are copper in color and traditionally fortified with higher alcohol and lots of hops to preserve the beer for its long travels. Wonderfully big and bold hoppy flavors are a perfect pairing with spicy foods or for those looking for a beer to reward them with the complexity of flavors so relished by "hop head" beer lovers.

On tap at the brewpub in Lakeside. Yellow pour with a white head. Citrus hop aromas. Taste follows suit. Well balanced with a sturdy caramel malt backbone. Not overly complex but really tasty. Good body and mouthfeel.

Hazy medium copper in the glass. Very few bubbles rising from the bottom but a nice large head. Primary from is piney hops. Lots of hope flavor with a bit of sweetness in the background. Hop flavor stick in the mouth for a while after a sip. Good IPA with lots of flavor, though I don’t know that I could drink more than a couple of these in a sitting.

Clear copper with a big off-white head. Aroma and flavors were floral and piney. Flavor to match with a nice good bitter finish. Great beer for on the river.

A pretty decent IPA, this has been aggressive hop in the aroma and in the body with a fair amount of dryness in the finish. Solid

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
Tried at Edmonton Craft Beerfest 2015. A nice IPA! Big flavours of pine and citrus hops with a medium level of bitterness from the hops. Also has a nice grassiness and caramel malt flavours.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Can to pint glass. The appearance was a hazy red/amber color with a one finger white foamy head that gently subsided leaving a soft speckled lacing evenly clinging around the glass. The smell had a mild bitter citrus to piney hoppiness over top of a mild caramel aroma. The taste combined the citrus and piney hops and balanced nicely over the caramel malts. Mild bittersweet combined aftertaste lead to a quick sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA, no date on the can but still do-able.
