12fl oz can poured into my pint glass
The appearance is that of a medium copper color with a frothy slightly tan two inch head. Great head retention that subsides very slowly and leaves a thing blanket covering the top of the beer. Noticeable amount of scattered lacing cling to the sides of my glass.
Huge citrus aroma come luring your nose with dominate smells of grapefruit, peaches, passion fruit, and tangerines. Traces of pink bubblegum can be detected along with caramel malts.
Taste upfront is slightly sweet with citrus flavors of grapefruit and tangerines. Pine like bitterness hops builds up midway through the sweetness with caramel malts and that pink bubblegum taste finishing it off.
Medium bodied with above average carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing and tasty aftertaste.
Overall this beer is highly drinkable and is pretty much an exact twin of another beer that comes in a green can. That beer is from Ska Brewing-Modus Hoperandi. If you love this beer then you MUST check out Modus Hoperandi and see for yourselves how exact these two beers are.

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.
