355ml can poured into Unibroue glass nov2 2009
A crystal clear golden amber with a thumbs width of head after a hard pour. it has decent retention with a few rings of lace
S very nice almost like I'm smelling a glass of grapefruit and tangerine juice. I also pick up on a little bit of booze, pine and some caramel to go along with the floral citrus
T tastes as it smells with a little bit of malt to balance things out. very good example for this style and the best canned beer I can think of
M thick enough to please me but I'm wondering if a little more carbonation might help its cause
D smell and sip a few times and its gone, very nice beer and I wish I had more of it
one of if not the best Canadian IPA's I've ever tried with out doubt. I'm even more impressed by the fact it comes from a can, much less impressed by not finding it east of BC far as I know. drink this whenever you get the chance it's a winner

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.
