A: Pours a translucent copper with a tan ring of head.

S: Pineapple, orange, floral hops in the nose.

T: Orange, pineapple and pine. Nothing that stands out, nothing interesting or complex, but tasty.

M: IPA-like carbonation levels on a medium bodied. Could be smoother.

O: Recommended, but I don't feel like this does the band justice.

650 ml bottle bought as part of a variety pack. The label calls it a specialty ale, but I'm expecting something resembling an American/West Coast style IPA.

A: golden, a bit cloudy, some carbonation visible, about one finger of head which dissipated fairly quickly.
S: tropical fruits.
T: Pine, lingering bitterness. I found this bitterness unpleasant because it wasn't balanced/backed up with other flavours. I found it kind of one-dimensional.
F: Medium-bodied.
O: I wouldn't buy this again. Maybe had I never tried some of the excellent IPAs available in BC/the Pacific NW, this would seem better, but there's no way it holds up against Fat Tug, Lord of the Hops, Space Dust, etc.
