330ml bottle purchased from the LCBO BB 11 12 10
A- slightly foggy light yellow color. Finger thick foam diminished to a ring of lace.
S - hoppy nose. citrusy with whiffs of lemon/grapefruit rinds.
T- Malt presence is overpowered by the bold bitterness derived from some delicious chinook. Grapefruit and pine are the main flavors with light fruit flavors following behind. Nice bitterness but but a little unbalanced due to the malt failing to provide a solid background. Nevertheless still flavorfull.
M- slightly thin mouthfeel with near perfect carbonation.
D- an ok drinker.
Overall the lack of malt presence hurts this brews potential and probably contributes to the lack of body. On a positive note this is a hop dominated beer good enough to keep your taste buds in check.

This is almost a session IPA, not boozy not overwhelming hops. A well designed beer. I say almost because its right on the cusp with an abv in the 5-6% range. Its very drinkable. The price was good for a bomber. I would prefer to get this in a six pack, but I have only seen the big boys around here. I love hoppy beers and this one has a good amount of hop presence there, however, its also not a Stone IPA either.
Color: Mild bronze, a decent amount of head that remained throughout.
Smell: Balance of malt and hops, not an intense hop aroma, but a good amount of floral hops.
Taste: Balanced. this could be my go to standard IPA if it were more readily available around here and in six packs. I am not saying they don't put this in six packs, but they are not found around here.
Overall: A pleasant experience, you could drink a few 12 oz beers or a couple of bombers and not be bombed. It has a nice IPA flavor, it is what a regular IPA should taste like.
