look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Dark amber colored brew with nice lasting foamy ice colored head. Lacing is grim. Good clarity.

Mild aroma. Fairly medicinal. Chamomile, floral, buttery.

Kinda uninspired flavors. Easy drinker, smooth, very mild flavors, next to zero bitterness or sweetness. Missing bitterness. Carbonation is medium prickly and nice. Flavors are kinda weak, bland pine, sugary, heavy caramel.

Much more of an ESB or amber than IPA. Step 'yo game up Canada!! Can't recommend.

A: Clear copper with a good amount of head and good retention.
S: Citrus, tropical fruit
T: This beer doesn’t quite have the bitter bite I would expect of an IPA, but it does have a decent hop profile - I'm mainly picking up pine and citrus.
F: A bit weak.
O: A good beer, but not the best West Coast IPA I’ve had.

3.58/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A : clean dark copper pour, 1/2 finger of milky white head which dissipated quickly leaving decent blotchy lace

S : moderately hoppy, somewhat dank pine, some citrus, toasted bread, overall pretty mild aroma

T : follows the nose but much more pronounced taste, strong hops to start followed by moderate malt, oatmeal, small hint of chocolate, somewhat sweet near the end into a mild bitter finish

M : medium bodied, high carbonation, pretty oily and lubricating, goes back easy

O : The aroma was a bit weak on this one but the flavors, the appearance and mouth feel are all very good and well balanced. This is really easy to drink and enjoyable, i will be having this again

3.6/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Clear copper colour, no head and no lacing.

S: Caramel, toffee, sweetness on the nose. Bread with maple syrup. Hint of pine and a bit of citrus.

T: Caramel and toffee on bread, has a low pine flavour coming in. Once the sip is done and over with you get a risidual sweetness.

M: A bit thin, a bit under carb for my taste. However I do find that the IBU are low on this IPA and so is the flavour/aroma of the hops. So in a way the undercarbing is ok as there is nothing to clean up. A bit dry on the finish.

O: This is a safe IPA. Good, great to enjoy in large quantity without resulting in being "hop-ed out".

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a relatively large foamy head with average retention and some alight lacing. Aroma of bitter hops with light citrus notes is not as powerful as I would have expected. Taste is a solid mix between some citrus notes with caramel malt and some floral hops with a bitter finish. Body is light with good carbonation. Not bad but nothing really exciting here.
