Purchased at the LCBO 473ml can for $2.50. Served at 6deg C in a tall glass.
A- Very good. Unfiltered. Excellent 1" head that tapers out to film after a couple of minutes
S- Excellent. Hints of cascade hop, grapefruit and yeast
T- Excellent. Very good bite on the tongue for a simple IPA. Not too bitter or hoppy.
O- Excellent! Will buy again now that it's a very reasonable price
This wonderful small IPA paired well with... Egg salad sandwiches!

Clear, medium amber, not a lot of head but it sticks around & laces the glass.
Big, hoppy aroma, with piney American "C" hops, tropical fruit, melon rind, and a lot of sweetness. Great IPA smell.
Bracingly bitter up front, with a piney bite only slightly softened by light citrus & tropical fruit notes that develop a little slower. After your taste buds acclimatize and the beer warms up a bit you notice that there's also a very substantial candylike sweetness, though with no burnt or toffee notes. Opponents of crystal malt in IPAs will not be pleased - this one is more in the East Coast style despite its geographic origin.
Mouthfeel substantial and somewhat sticky, with fairly low carbonation.
Outstanding. By far my favourite Canadian IPA thus far.
