12oz twist-off bottle. Orange color, thin white head. Aroma of citrus hops and caramel malt. Flavor is an OK caramel malt, hints of mustiness. Finishes with a grassy hop bitterness. Dry and light bodied. Good amount of hops, finishes with a decent IBU character. Not bad, had better. fiulijn (21264) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2008

Hazy light amber color, creamy head. Good american hops aroma, not too strong, with some caramel and a light cheesy touch (interesting). Good caramel flavor, strong bitterness, dry resins or hop oils too, and very light cheesy touch too. Very pleasant.

Amber color. Light fruity hop aroma. It has some caramel flavor, light sweetness (I would like more), strong bitterness, with some nice hop oils, and strong final. Simple but pleasant.
Biscuity malt with orange/grapefruit citrus hop nose. I’d guess Centennial and Cascade. Opaque orange-blonde colour with white head that diminishes to thin cover. Mild malt and vegetal, grassy hops. Very dry. Mouthfeel is somewhat watery. Bottle. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2008
12 ounce bottle. The name of the person who shared this beer will be withheld to protect the innocent. Hazy apple juice color w/ no head. Aroma is melon, pear, caramel and something very, very wrong. Totally oxidized with a very papery taste. Some subtle hops and a slightly vegetal taste. Completely flat. Total trainwreck. patricks110 (2668) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 21, 2008
Overall, not too bad. Very hoppy and bitter like a good IPA should be. There is an overpowering taste of the beer however. The mouthfeel was smooth and slightly complex. Altogether, this is a fairly good brew from Wild Rose. I am hoping to make a trip to their brewery soon.

How bitter is this supposed to be? I think there might be some leftover dish soap in my glass. If not, this beer is just okay. If so, well then my face is certainly red. mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2008
[795-20071102] Tap @ Wild Rose (Calgary, AB). Hoppy grass aroma has a bit of citrus pips. Clear, amber orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Hoppy bitter citrus flavour is a little grassy. Medium body. Nice repeatable hoppy beverage. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2007
Bottle. Orange-amber with a small white head. Medium mouthfeel. Nice aroma and flavour of caramel malt and grapefruit hops. No big "wow" factor, just a easy drinking IPA with a nice hoppy finish. CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival 2007 in Victoria on September 8th, 2007. Your average IPA. Orange with strong malt balance. Okay... perhaps a tad plain. RobBestwick (966) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2007
Bottled. Hoppy and peppermint aroma. Bronze hue with a small frothy head. Very hoppy with some peppermint and caramel/toffee notes and hints of apples. Well laced. A balanced and enjoyable IPA.
