The color is copper, it is clear and the head is a nice cloudy looking foam. Very white. Nice looking beer. The smell is very interesting... for Boreale. Citrusy with some other fruity smell. Some caramel malts are present too. Makes you want to take a sip right now! Nice aroma.

The taste is more fruity than the smell. A nice bitterness which is well balanced. The bitterness is not over the top, but its well balanced. This one is good. A good IPA.

Actually I was very impressed by the Boreal's IPA, it was on special for 8 bucks for a sixer.

Smell is hoppy, but not too much, just well balanced, I was imagining a remake of the McAuslan's one or something, but you do smell the hoppiness.

Taste is bitter hoppy with a good hint of caramel but penchant toward bitterness.

Overall a good session IPA and cheap too

A:
Beer poured a golden honey color with nice head although it was a little airy it maintained it okay.

S:
Light hoppy and floral aromas, not overpowering.

T:
Nice, dry unoffensive hoppiness. Some dank hop notes but nothing too intense.

M:
Smooth, crisp mouthfeel. Not too strong, nor overly bitter. Pleasant hoppy feeling in the
back of the mouth.

O:
Overall, a really solid beer. I sometimes find that IPAs go a little overboard on the whole bitter hop aspect, but this one is a nice light-tasting beer and is very drinkable. Honestly, it could be a little stronger on the hops and wouldn't suffer from it. If that were the case I might lean towards giving it a little higher rating. It would probably be a decent IPA for people that aren't big fans of IPAs.
