pintbypint (3975) - Edmonton, Alberta, - AUG 4, 2017
355ml can. I think the recipe has been tweaked a bit, this is now 4.8% abv and is definately a session ipa. It pours out golden and hazy, white soapy head with messy lacing. Aroma - citrus, light tropical fruit and caramel. Taste -caramel malts, grapefruit and light tropical notes. Grapefruity bitterness and a long aftertaste. Light bodied. Ok.

Unique and a good light IPA but nothing super special about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light orange pour. Some tropical aromas and taste as well. High bitterness for a low abv.

UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAY 11, 2017
Appearance: clear deep gold with three fingers of fluffy ivory head diminishing gradually to a tenacious cap, clingy moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, biscuity pale malt, pineapple, light resin. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering and building bitter finish. (3/5) A fair bit better than their ISA, but there’s still a hint of something in the nose that isn’t entirely pleasant, which might be charitably described as "resin". Fairly easy drinking despite the middling-high IBU, which really only manifests in the finish. Drinkable, but not really worth seeking out. (13/20) 6.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com

Orange body, white head, some lacing. Pleasant malty aroma, hits of citrus and resin. Taste is quite dry and lacklustre Overall a pretty middling IPA.

RobBestwick (991) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2017

reebtogi (6488) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2017
355ml can pours a golden orange colour with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and tropical fruits with hints of pine and caramel. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a nice refreshing, easy drinking IPA that would be good on a nice warm sunny day.

3.3
lupulist (354) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy orange colour with a white head. Aromas of grapefruit and papaya. Very light bodied, with mild flavours of citrus and tropical fruit. Medium length, moderately bitter finish. Like a toned-down IPA, but still very drinkable.

3.2
Ferris (17776) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2017
Can - Caramel, biscuit and some citrus. Clear gold with a rich beige head. Decent citrus, hard candy and light caramel. Decent, but nothing particularly interesting.

3.7
Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2017 Bomber. Clear brighter orange copper, looser off-white foam mostly fades. Aroma of orange citrus and tropical fruity hop. Taste is lightly sweet tropical fruity hop, notably tangerine, mildly resinous, barely bitter, lean pale malts. Average carbonation, lighte bodied, well hopped. LBW (Lagerboys be Wary)
