3.76/5 rDev +5.9%
Appearance - Pours a pale copper with two fingers of creamy, billowy beige head.
Smell - Bready malts, mild leafy hops, hint of lemon peel.
Taste - Strong bready and biscuity malts. Very low hop profile, just a bit of leafy hop spiciness in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp, dry finish.
Overall - An English IPA with a good malt backbone and leafy hop spice playing a supporting role.

part of an Ontario Craft Brewers tasters pack. Poured into a pint glass, half a finger of head, aromas of hops, nothing too overpowering however. Ruby colour, tastes a very palatable amount of hops. This brew will offend no one. Very enjoyable, light carbonation, no lacing whatsoever. I would recommend for anyone as a gateway to more hoppy IPA's.

Bottle 4 of 6 from LCBO taster's pack. Served cold into a pint glass.
Appearance - Bronze colored beer with 1 finger of of white head resting on top, which dissipates quickly. Average head retention and few bubbles in the beer, which is very clear.
Smell - Mild tropical fruits blended with malts and an earthy slightly piney hoppiness.
Taste - Earthy feel, some tropical fruits, lingering bitterness and a nice balance between hops and malts. Not too bitter.
Mouthfeel - Mild mouthfeel, with medium body, smooth creamy and low carbonation.
Overall - Not a lot to say here other than its a fairly good IPA but is not mind blowing in any sense.

Got this in a 12oz bottle in a pre-packaged 6pk from the brewer. Pretty good selection for $13.40 or so. Excellent way to try them without buying the bomber at big dollars.
A- Nice coppery, amber colour. Very clear. NO head what so ever.
S- Nice, nice, not thrilling but nice. Hints of hops, touch grassy.
T- Subdued. Rather mellow by an IPA standard. Hints of caramel and a touch bitter. Flavours are blended well but overall taste is nothing special
M- Dry. Touch bitter
O- Alright. Nothing special. Very glad I had a chance to try it in a 341ml bottle at a reasonable price instead of the nearly $10.00 bomber. Will not buy the bomber or this one as there are much better Canadian IPA's out there now. This one would be a nice novelty at the cottage by the fire once but that would be it for this one.
Thx for reading!

Serving Type - 750ml bottle, poured into a pintglass
Appearance - Light brown/amber colour. Two fingers of fluffy white head. Moderate retention with magnificent lacing.
Smell - More malt than hop aroma here. Caramel/crystal malt, some light hop bits, and some earthy tones. Hop's are pretty subdued for the style. What is there has hints of citrus and pine...not cascadian but I don't think but along those lines.
Taste - Medium body, light carbonation. Smooth and creamy finish.

Looks like a clear, thin cola under a moderate head that settles to about a 1/4" cap.
Hoppy nose with plenty of malt. Hoppy up front to taste, but a lot of malt sweetness and burnt caramel - kind of unexpected for the style as the hops are not quite a dominant as you might look for. A fair bit of sugar, almost reminiscent of an old school, light weight bock.
Mouth feel is slighty watery and sugary.
OK, but not my thing. Nothing so far out of LoB has made too much of an impression. A lot of very average, not too memorable stuff.
