On-tap at EastSide Mario's at the Park Plaza Hotel in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
This sure seemed to be a popular beer...I saw many, many pints being poured while I waited for my food at the bar. Sadly, these people don't know what they are missing. This stuff should be called "Canadian Budweiser". That's exactly what it tasted like. By no means an IPA.
Appearance is a clear dull blond in color, with hefty carbonation. Minimal white lace atop that tries (and fails) to lace. Aromas are brief and muted. Some floral hops and caramel sweetness. Flavor is macro. Short-lived and snappy. Starts with a dose of wheaty-corn, middle shoots a round of grassy hops, and finishes with a dry and short-lived aftertaste.
As a lager, this is OK. As an IPA, it's an insult to the name.
Serving type: on-tap

473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for 2.35 CDN.
Appearance - clear pale golden color with a finger and a half of white head which recedes quickly and coalesces into a small white cap. Some effervescent bubbles rise from the centre of the glass.
Smell - weak grainy aroma. Some metallic mustiness in there to which is odd. Not a great smelling beer.
Taste - kinda like the nose, not much other than mild grains and a slight bit of bitterness. Really mild and pretty much an AAL crossed with and EIPA. There's just not much else there.
Mouthfeel - medium light body and soft carbonation. Would like a more lively mouthfeel.
Overall- pretty bland beer, lacking the crispness that good examples of the style usually have. I used to think this was a pretty good beer, and while inoffensive, there's not much exciting or different about this one. Still goes down easy enough on the first hot and humid day of 2014.
