Cloudy dark amber and light froth. Quiet nose for style. First flavour is WTF...french toast...maple?? Dry and hoppy. Weirdness drops through the glass. Piney after initial shock. pintbypint (3832) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
650ml brown bottle. Ana ttractive pour, nice orange colour, fairly clear. Good rocky tan head on top. Some malty aroma and fresh citrusy hops over top. Taste has some toasty/biscuit malts, grain, touch of earth and citrusy hops. Light aftertaste with some citrus. Pretty solid. phaleslu (10670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2014
12 oz. can from Fritz123- thanks again! Pours a semi-cloudy amber color with a finger of off-white head that settles unevenly. Aroma of grass, herbs, spice, straw, caramel and toasted malts. Flavor of grassy, spicy hops, straw, cereal, caramel, florals, and citrus peel. Light-medium bodied, with a bitter, floral, citrusy, spicy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice IPA.

Can from Brennans in Brookfield. Pours an orangey amber with a white head. Some spots of lace. Aroma has stone fruits, citrus, and pine. Light herbs show up down through the glass. Taste is of somewhat dank fruits, some lemon, tangy pine and resin. Light toffee malts show up in the background, and get heavier down through the glass. Also somewhat watery. Medium bodied, and resiny but thin. Finishes bitter and sweet, with tangy-ness. Their session IPAs were much better, which is a bummer. Need to work back up from those as a base. 13.2 mcberko (18977) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
22 oz. bottle, courtesy of fiulijn (thanks Alex), pours an opaque bright orange amber with a medium beige head. Nose is on the maltier side for an IPA, with caramel malt, rich resinous hops, and a little woody element. Flavour is much along the same lines, with a dry woody palate, bringing out notes of dry caramel malt, wood, and resinous hops. Robust flavour profile with a substantial malt backing that thankfully doesn’t imbue too much sweetness. Nice IPA.

Canned. Poured slightly cloudy medium orange with a short, but sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up orange meat and biscuity notes with light pine resin and orange zest accents.. nothing really stood out. The flavor found orange meat, caramel, and biscuity notes at the core, with peppery and lesser citrus notes around.. more tangy and bitter out there.. finished with a mess of tangy and bitter notes. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation.. sharp and unpleasant at times.. not all that good. bytemesis (9237) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Can with thanks to Brian - as EVO IPA. Pours clear orange with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma is caramel and pine. Yay. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, nondescript. Lightish body, a bit harsh. douglas88 (9631) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 10, 2014
12 ounce can. Pours a dark reddish copper color with a small white head. A light sweet fruity nose, a bit of diacetal perhaps. The flavor is not very good: bitterness, caramel, a bit of fruit, but fits together in a very harsh green hop dominated way, a bit of sweet corn or butter. Hmm. OK I guess. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a fairly thick light tan head on there. The smell on this one is slightly grassy, but predominantly stale (as a result from sitting on the shelf too long at Total Wine). Taste is bitter, but also tastes far less than fresh. Sad, because this could be good. nuplastikk (6453) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2014
12oz can. Unfiltered hazy orange-copper body. Thin, foamy head laces up the glass. Pretty classic IPA, west coast in the sense that the malts are medium light and toasty, with a decent hop bill. Overall this is pretty tame stuff though, almost has a fishy UK feel. Drinkable, but a little lacking in body. Piny wintergreen sticky hops, classic.
