Can. Clear amber with a thin wispy head.
Light hoppy aroma but not much there.
Slight improvement upon tasting. Some caramel. Mildly bitter.
Light carbonation. Reasonably refreshing.
No great shakes.

Draft: Poured a light amber color ale with a mediums size foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of buttery malt with light citrus hops notes is OK. Taste is a mix of light citrus hops notes with some buttery malt notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Hops are not as dominant as I would have expected and buttery notes are more or less pleasant.

Golden color with a thick head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of lemongrass, mild pine and a bit of honey.
Flavor with notes of pine, biscuit malt juice, resin, pineapple and berries. Dry aftertaste with an easy medium bitterness.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Lemony and piney American IPA on a mild biscuit malt base. Plain.

500 ml can served cold into a pint glass. LCBO purchase for under $3 CDN.

Appearance - Semi-clear, semi-transparent beer with golden hues. A fine looking finger of white foam sits on top and lingers a while.

Smell - Clean, grassy with a definite English hop presence. A bitter and slightly sour aroma. Session EIPA all the way.

Taste - Clean, fairly grassy with lots of lemon zest and some pepper. Coarse grainy flavors in the background. Decent for what it is.

Mouthfeel - Thin and watery, carbonation n is light. Body is watery throughout, with a peppery pinch on the tongue.

Overall - A decent English style session IPA,but I can't see anyone here getting too excited about this.

The colour is yellow; the liquid cleat. The two finger head is compact and white; it sinks slowly to a thick lid leaving some lacing.

The smell is … somewhat fruity with some citric notes. Dense sweetness, some metal and butter/margarine.

The taste is quite clean with lots of sweet malt, woody/herbal English hops, passing butterscotch and slowly growing bitterness. Light to medium body. Returning sweetness in the aftertaste as well as metallic mild bitterness and some higher alcohol. The finish is overly sweet with dough, metal and some cheap toffee.

The carbonation is medium to light; the small bubbles fresh. The beer gets flat quickly. The liquid is medium smooth.

I don’t get this at all, it tastes more like an industrial lager with some added English hops.

From a 500ml can served straight from the fridge at 8 degrees Celsius into a stemmed IPA glass. Best before date: May 2018.

Look: The beer pours a brilliant pale gold with 2cm of white, bubbly head that fades into a craggy cap within 2+ minutes

Smell: Fairly mild with decent balance. Fresh vegetal/herbal and perfumy floral hops. Citrus and grass. Mild biscuity pale malt. The aroma lacks punch.

Taste: Quite mild and leaning towards bitter. Hop flavour is similar to aroma with herbal and floral character. Toasty/biscuity malts play a supportive role. The finish is long and bitter with medium intensity.

Feel: Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Sharp and acrid with no alcohol warmth.

Overall: I&G session IPA ranks as a mediocre brew in my books. Overall I find it lacks depth and character even with the decent hop bill. In addition, there's an unpleasant harshness in the mouthfeel. Too easy a beer to forget in a world of excellent IPAs.
