I picked this up at Giant, enjoyed chilled in a teku.

The color is a sunny golden with light haze and thick white cap with good retention. The smell is very good with a strong citrus and dank herbal aroma. The feel is good with some mild sweetness and moderate bitterness with medium carbonation and low alcohol influence.

The taste has a mix of lemon and grapefruit with a slight caramel malt sweetness and light bitter herbal flavor in the background with a nice mild tangelo acidity alongside mild astringency with some gentle alcohol but the hop flavor is pretty fresh with light pine accent you can taste the citrus rind from the Citra hops which is nice and lingers on after the swallow. Overall I was pleased, this is a solid IPA, it lived up to expectations and I would drink this again.

poured from a 650ml bottle bought at the BCLS. I paid $7.25 + deposit.

A: Cloudy gold, foamy head the colour of buttered popcorn.
S: Citrus / tropical fruits / melon. Fairly sweet. Maybe a hint of pine.
T: Follows the smell, with a bitter finish.
F: lighter than I'd expect, given the alcohol content. Pleasant.

Would I buy this again? Maybe. I'm glad I tried it.

Coming in a slim 650ml brown bottle, bottling date 05/07/2013, served lightly chilled in a straight imperial pint glass:

A: pours a clear bright amber colour with a thin but frothy off-white head, leaving tight lacing as it retreats, on top of rather mild carbonation.
S: deliciously and richly grapefruity-citric and tropical fruity (unripe lychee, ripe guava and passion fruits all spring to mind) aroma flows on top of a decent but mildly-flavoured malty backbone (with a lightly “stinky” edge as in floor-malted barley like Maris Otter); following a good swirl, lots of hop resins with flowery, gooseberry-ish and grapey scent come to the fore, rendering a really deep and colourful 3D dimensional performance all in all. Although it is rich and enjoyable, the hop aroma never goes overly heavy.
T: lovely effervescent on the entry, the juicy malts have very similar quality like Maris Otter English malts, with a somewhat… gristy aroma in the middle, pairing seamlessly with the equally focused and “neat” hop aroma as in guava, grapefruit flesh and tannic citrus seeds; yet very soon the hop bitterness seems to suck every flavour elements into an “alpha-black-hole”, where only the assertive, sharp and tannic edge of hop bitterness is left the palate. Finishing clean, dry even, fairly bitter, with a mildly warming feel lagging behind.
M&O: soothingly carbonated and refreshing enough, this medium+ bodied IPA is so different than other malt-rich American IPAs in that the neater malt base allows the hop aroma and flavour to roam free while still keeping a close dialogue. All in all, I love this IPA dearly and would recommend this to anyone who prefers to have something slightly… different every now and then.

22oz bottle. Clear copper with a rocky bright-white head. Sudsy lacing that sticks. Smells leafy, herbal and a touch piney, with a light mix of green citrus and doughy sweetness across the back. The taste is the same, with a mellow mix of green bitterness, herbal flavors and light tropical fruit. A neutral bready sweetness serves as a backbone. Dry, bitter and resinous on the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slick creaminess and just a touch of crispness to the carbonation. Alcohol is kept in check. This was an alright IPA with a good mix of hop flavors going on with it. I just wish that it had been a bit more memorable. It’s hard to justify the more expensive bomber price on this though.
