Solid Canadian hoppy IPA....not as "hoppy" as I prefer generally and a bit uninspired, but overall very nice. Love the marketing/packaging (which I admit I am a sucker for) and glad I tried

12oz bottle, no apparent freshness date. Imported from Canada - my home country. I hope it's good.
A - deep amber/copper colored ale with a tall, rocky, ivory colored head that holds excellent retention and eventually fades to a thick foam
S - caramel malt mixed with some juicy & tropical Citra hops
T - big citrus burst of Citra hops with notes of mandarin orange zest, mango, and pine; heavy caramel malt backbone with a possible hint of rye malt in there.
M - full body, pleasant carbonation, finishing bitter and dry with earthy pine lingering on the palate
O - well this did not disappoint. Aroma seemed lacking, but otherwise a really solid IPA. I'm curious to know how fresh this is. Nothing wrong with it by any means, but a nice fresh dry hop would help the aroma a lot.

12 oz bottle, with "Bottled" on dating etched onto the label.

NIce looking pour, rich, darker amber, sturdy khaki cap, leaves larger bubble, froth, and low sheeting.

Resiny pine and citric hop nose.

Sturdy IPA, with more then ample hop flourishes..and a nice smooth malt base providing the balance...worthy IPA
