Appearance: : It has a pale yellow colour to it. It shows a high carbonation, has a white head that dies down quite fast and there is minimal lacing.
Smell: The aromas give out hints of grains, corn and light hops.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a grainy taste to it with a very small bitterness coming from the low amount of hops and it also has a bit of malts.
Mouthfeel: It has a high carbonation but is really smooth.
Drinkability: It's a very drinkable and refreshing beer accompanied with bland flavours and aromas. It's a good beer if your looking to pound a few back. However, it really doesn't meet the standards of an IPA. It has more of a lagar character to it.

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.

One of the few offerings on the shelves that wasn't a variant of Molson, Carling or LaBatt.
Pours a too-bright gold with a huge head into my glass. Something's not right here. Hmm. More fitting for a pils.
Buttery malt in the nose? Check. Low hop presence? Check. Is it an English IPA? ("Price is Right" losing horn)
Tastes like I just drank a pint of dishwater. Hardly any hops, malt or anything.
Watery, metallic finish completes this abomination of an IPA. No, scratch this. This is a drain pour.
Being that this is the "Pride of Nova Scotia", I'd be shocked if empty cans didn't litter the grounds of Sunnyvale Trailer Park.
