Can: Poured a clear copper color ale with a nice tan color head with good retention with some good lacing. Aroma of dry hoppy notes with light dry caramel malt notes. Taste is also dominated by some dry hoppy caramel malt notes with light bitter ness at the end. Body is about average with good carbonation. Enjoyable and easily drinkable with good English-style hops presence.

Large, big bubbled head. It settles slowly, forming a dome on the decent. Minimal spots for lace. Light amber color and relatively clear.

Mild aroma of semi-sweet toasted malt. Very low hop nose.

The flavor has a strong toasted malt start with a notable hop bite in the swallow and aftertaste. Full bodied but with a sizable effervescence. The flavor has a touch of earthiness to it, but the hop dominates.

Amber-red in color, with small head that disappear quickly. An overly sweet smell, with bread hints. Overly sweet in the mouth too, way too malty with almost no hop taste. Really underwhelming.

Way too malty for the style. Letdown.

Not dissimilar in appearance to an Irish red, honestly. Lacing and head retention were great. On the nose I get just about an equal mix of slightly citrusy hops and sweet caramelized malt; both are rather subdued though. On the palate malt leads the forefront. It is rather bitter however, just not that "hoppy" or citrusy. It's maybe even a bit harsh, in terms of bitterness. A pretty creamy body, which probably has a lot to do with the head staying around forever. Really this just seems like a slightly stronger and much bitter Irish red. That being said I rather like this beer and it's okay.

Pours a clear ruddy amber with a little finger and a half of tan head that stays a scummy film throughout. Meh retention; spotty lacing.

Malty and slightly herbal. Caramel, soap, lemon rind, fresh cut grass.

Creamy and flatly hoppy. Lots of earthy hops, brown sugar, dirt, pine, ash, caramel.

Medium bodied, even, coating, and creamy with a tingly finish and good carbonation. Supoib!

Nice tasting IPA (although it could definitely pass for an APA—or maybe American Amber).
First of all, it is nice to see cans. It pours pretty unimpressive, but I think that further is evidence of the can's appeal—not to mention portability; and is generally a tasty beer. I think it is deceiving how malty it smells compared to the taste, but it has a nice woodsy/English hop profile and is pretty damn drinkable. Tasty beer to celebrate my return to La Belle Province.
Would have again; worth trying, would be a good intro to hoppy beers for someone curious to get into them.
