Dark notes abound, this one comes in with orange and brown, making a dullard auburn appearance. Clarity sucks, carbonation does not yield a head deeper than 1/10". Aroma doesn't impart hops.

Taste reveals some red and brown malt type of flavors and roasting. Lacks hops. Seems earthy/dirty. Terribly priced as well. Toffee.

Just a disappointment on every level (except the artwork).

Notched 3 and 8. Pours a very cloudy brown with a high level of suspended matter. Below normal head volume, lacing and retention.

Nice nose of caramel, toasted malt (somewhat grainy), sweet ripe fruit esters (stone fruit, grape) and very little hop influence.

Heavy light body that is smooth. Normal carbonation with a bit of mid-palate effervescence and a fair burst in the finish.

The flavor profile is less than average for the style - not bad, but note quite good either. It has a slight caramel note throughout and bitterness is rather mild. An English Bitter hop flavor is present, but rather muted. The finish is a lingering English Bitter hop flavor that seems a bit off. I won't buy this again.

pours a murky ruby mahogany with very little head. nose; centennial hops, toffee, & caramel. taste; caramel malt, centennial hops, sugar, fig & light pine resin. very low carbonation & medium mouthfeel. this is not a typical ipa - with the dark fruit and sugar notes here (caramel & fig are prominent), it's more like a hoppy dubbel. this could also definitely use more carbonation. still, very enjoyable.

Purchased at the LCBO as a clear out for $2.15/ea. 341ml bottle. Served at 8deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 1" high white head that lasts 3-4mins before film out. Super extra dark gold almost brown colour. Filtered clear

S- Lots of malt. Has that sickly sweet IPA feel

T- Yup! That sickly sweet thing. LOL. Has a nice hop presence but the malt just pounds through. It's heavy to say the least but it's not bad by any stretch.

M- Nice and dry. Has that bite that an APA has although this is an IPA!

O- Weird one but good. Nothing to turn down at $12.40 a 6pk. Good all around and well balanced

Food Pairing

This pretty good little brew went well with....... Cinnimon buns very warm with butter on top melting off.

WOW that was a tasty one

Enjoy

Appearance - This beer pours a deep amber/red with 1 finger heard which receeds fairly quickly leaving a light lacing over the top of the beer.

Aroma - The aroma is dominated by a pine resin followed by some orange peel, grape fruit, and lemon.

Taste -Earthy and Pine flavor dominates this drink then bread, orange peel, lemon and some pepper down the throat. the grapefruit is gone completely but bread and pepper appear, which i did not smell. The smell is much sweeter than the taste

Mouth feel - This is a light-medium bodied beer the carbonation is very prickly and gives it a gritty feel the pepper adds to this "gritty" feel all the way down.


Overall - This is definitely not the worst IPA I've ever had, It is fairly decent and doesn't taste all that bad. The problem I have is its priced right along side some much better IPA's. I would buy a Moralite or Le Castors Yakima IPA ect... long before this one but it was definitely an experience. Try it if you can.
