Well I must say I am still not a man free of prejudices. While living in California and become a self-proclaimed hophead, I found the idea of a Canadian IPA to be .. well lets say "odd".
Talk about looking like a fool. This VERY American IPA made in British Columbia is a show stopper and instantly made me happy.
A- Dark Golden Amber, Great head on pour and some decent lacing as well.
S- Hops, Grapefruit, Citurs and sweet. Delicious.
T- Delicious. Again a nice overage of hops but not overkill. Lots of citrus fruit and a lingering finish. A must have for any hophead and one of the best overall canned beers I have ever had. Amazing. I love it.
M- A little oily as expected from the high hops but finishes nicely leaving you wanting another sip.
D- If you are a fan of the style, this is epic. And in a can makes it a great go-to beer for a tailgate or bbq as I plan to do now that I have discovered it.

Poured from a 650ml bottle, no dating. Clear dark orange body with two fingers of bubbly white head. Lots of lacing.
Tons of grapefruit, pine, lemon, orange peel and citrus notes on the aroma. Some sort of "dank" hoppy note too.
Citrus and grapefruit flavor on the tongue and forwards into big hop bitterness with some lemon and orange peel notes. Juicy hop flavor. Leaves a dry, very bitter, hoppy aftertaste.
Medium body, smooth and quaffable. Nice amount of carbonation to go along with the body and flavor.
Nice IPA from Central City.
