2.89/5 rDev -19.7%
Can: Poured a clear copper color ale with a rather large foamy head with average retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of dry caramel malt with light bitter hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by some dry caramel malt with some hoppy bitter notes that are not as powerful as I would have expected. Body is light with good carbonation. Too much dry caramel malts for its own good with hops that fell way short considering the style.

Pours iced tea amber with a chunky, long lasting cap. Copious amounts of lace cling to the glass on the way down. The aroma is herbal and fruity hops mingling with fresh bread and light roasty malts. Grapefruit, melon and grape skin hop flavors and an assertive bitterness dominate the taste. Chewy, caramel malts are very prominent. Alcohol spice is quite noticeable for the ABV. The mouthfeel is light bodied and moderate to lightly carbonated. Some slick coating and booze heat detracts. The finish is moderately bitter and a bit boozy.
This is an ok, if somewhat distracted IPA. Too much malt in the flavor and an immodest alcohol presence for the strength. Still worth try, and very good on tap.

A: Copper orange filtered with no carbonation, 4 fingers of amber tinged head, some chunky continents-on-the-map-like lacing. The head unfolds like an inverted waterfall and is beautiful, in some ways resembles a nitro can though its not.
S: Orange, fruity, light pine, some red chili peppers, cough syrup.
T: Light fruity, melon, orange, pine, alcohol, cough syrup
M: Medium thick syrupy body, somewhat resinous. Low carbonation.
O: Quite good that would be better if chilled a little more, I’m having it at room temperature.

473ml can into nonic pint glass. best before oct 29, 2014. enjoyed on june 17, 2014
a: hazy burnt orange or amber colour with just over two fingers of off-white head. decent lacing
s: big pineapple and caramel up front. grapefruit, pine, and oranges afterwards. hints of banana?
t: pineapple, grapefruit, and malt are present all throughout the tasting. slightly tropical in general. shy pine, banana, and orange in here as well. a strong and lingering grapefruit bitterness concludes the tasting and dries the palate quickly and rather well. 65 IBU as written on the can sounds about right. the malt could take a bit of a back seat, but there's really nothing offensive here
m: light-to-medium carbonation, medium-ish body, slightly creamy
o: not your typical IPA but worth a try i guess. not something i'd actively seek out though

Poured from a tallboy into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark amber-copper coloring with a tall, frothy, big bubbled, off-white head. Vibrant. Nose of pineapple and passion fruit sweetness, tangy caramel backbone, and floral highlights. Flavors of caramel on the forward tongue, roasted and slightly tangy, with a resiny, bitter hops streak at the end of the palate. Slick and slightly oily in mouth, with a roasty sweet aftertaste. Slick, slightly dry finish. Decent brew. A little all over the place, but tasty and interesting.

Purchased at the LCBO $2.95 for a 473ml can. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass.
A- Nice unfiltered IPA. Not much head at all. Cloudy good!
S- Pretty good. Rather subdued.
T- Not bad. Not great but not bad. Expected a lot more out of this one. Tried it in the past and it hasn't changed much. Pretty thin for an IPA even for a Canadian offering.
M- Pretty good.
O- Not that great but pretty good. Not something I would go out of my way for but that big 'ol fish eye reeled me in for a couple.
This so so IPA pairs well with... Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. Nice whole wheat bread buttered on one side, hot pan, one slice butter side on the pan, Kraft slice, tomato slice, onion slice and the other slice of bread butter side up. Grill away!
