4.18/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A: Poured with a moderate-sized, off-white, creamy and fluffy head, that showed good lasting power, and left some nice sticky lacing on the glass. Body is a dark orange color, with just a bit of haze.
S: Very strong aroma, prominently of hops, in the pine and citrus variety... big on the orange, especially. Backed up by a touch of malt sweetness.
T: High hop flavor - lots of citrus, some pine... again, orange is dominant. Enough sweetness to help balance the hops without being cloying, like some IPAs can be. Moderate-high bitterness in the finish.
M: Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation.
O: An excellent American IPA... pretty much lives up to all the hype.
Serving type: can

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.
