Purchased at the LCBO $2.85 for a 473ml can served at 8deg C in a draught glass

A- Very good. Opens well and pours amber good. No head after 30sec though

S- Pretty good. Light hops and not overpowering

T- Let down. A lot more hops needed here. Nice recipe but needs more hops

M- Ok at best.

O- Not that great. Will not buy again

Food Pairing

This so so beer goes well with... hamburgers

A. Amber with a pinkish tinge, clear flitered, no carbonation, 4 fingers o f creamy beige tinged white head.

S: Strawberries, pine, light citrus.

T: Strawberries, malt, light offal, fruity, slight herbal green quality, no real pine but some citrus.

M: Medium body, low carbonation.

O: Surprising. Wasn’t expecting strawberry or green herb, but it comes through. As a beer, not awesome, but achieves the presumed goal of displaying cascade hops.

I expected this to be better than it was. I'm not sure why. I was hoping for something reasonably close to a West Coast-style IPA, and I figured this was a good choice to get my Dad away from only ever drinking Keith's IPA. Well, neither of us liked it.

A: one finger of head, amber, visible carbonation, slightly cloudy
S: MILDLY hoppy, not detecting a whole lot of anything, just a wee bit of citrus
T: mild and boring, like lager. nowhere close to an IPA.
F: thin.
O: disappointing.

16 oz can was poured into a mason jar.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a orange copper color with great clarity and bubbles seen coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Slight citrusy hops, caramel, and toasted bready malts.

Taste: Light grapefruit and tangerine, caramel, and toasted malts.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, highly carbonated, a little chewy, light to medium bodied, and drinkable.

Overall: Pretty simple North of the Border IPA. Light, a little hoppy, and a little malty.
