3.25/5 rDev -23.7%
A: Poured a sluggish, clear amber color with good carbonation and a moderate dirty white cap
S: Mainly pine and bread with some residual sweetness and light booze
T: Immediate bittering hops with chewy malt bckboine of toasted malt and oerhaos some caramel. Pine resin and orange peel poretty much dominate the flavors.
M: Light to medium bodied, sticky, not so refreshing and it felt a bit heavy and sweet on the palate for a 6.5er
O: Glad I was able to try this but not so sure I wuld be going back to this one.

A: Pours a hazy amber with a good sized fluffy white head. Fades slowly with great retention but the lacing is so-so.
S: Wonderfully sharp tropical fruit aroma. Pineapple and mango mixes with a nice grapefruit. Very nice sweet caramel malt helps balance it out.
T: Tastes follow the nose. Tropical fruit up front with the pineapple and mango primarily. Maybe a hint of tangerine? There is some bitter grapefruit and maybe just a hint of pine. Mild caramel malt helps balance a bit but overall it's quite hop-forward and bitter. Quite drying in the aftertaste with a bit of pine and resin.
M: Medium bodied, smooth and a little drying.
O: A very nice IPA that I had never even heard of before until I stumbled upon it by accident. Great hop variety, sharp bitterness and some caramel to smooth it all out.

This IPA tasted really FLAT! The date on the can said "10/02/2012" I think all of the positive reviews must have come from Canadians, because this is not a good IPA! The warmer it gets, the worse it tastes. I spent $14 Canadian for a 6 pack and it was not worth it!

Appearance - very pale orange, little bit of white head, with quite a bit of head lacing.
Smell - citrus hops, heavy in the grapefruit and pineapple.
Taste - very floral hops, just enough malt, very tasty. Absolutely no alcohol taste.
Mouthfeel - light to medium feel.
Overall - big fan of a lot of the ipa's from B.C and this is one of my faavorites.

First had: Philly Beer Scene Tasting panel with Matt Falco at Victory Brewing Company, Downingtown, PA
I was privileged enough to be on the tasting panel for PBS Magazine, along with Bill Covaleski of Victory and Greg Ramirez of Exton Beverage. This was one of 21 beers we sampled during the session.
At least an extra 0.5 on the appearance because I love the artwork on the can! Who drew my wife on there?!?! Clear amber pour with a small white head that retained and laced well. Crisp hop aroma, lemon and apple skins. More citrus hops in the taste, with the malts taking a seat far in the back. Tasty, but lacks complexity. Light-medium body, and a very nice drink overall.
