Single bottle from a six pack, picked up at the LCBO.

Poured into a Bells nonic glass. Hazy honey-grapefruit colour, big billowing head of foam, great sheets of lacing. Nice looking IPA.

Nose is sweet malt, grapefruit, citrus hops, orange peel.

Good IPA, bitter, bold grapefruit notes, strong bittering hops to the finish that oddly enough ends up feeling quite dry. Not overly complex, but nice nonetheless.

Carbonation is a bit sharp, but the feel is dry and slightly creamy.

There's plenty of good IPAs to be had out there, and I don't feel that this one cracks into that upper echelon of 'must-haves', but it's quite good and I wouldn't mind it in the fridge.

A - Pours a nice orange gold color with almost 2 fingers of tan/orange tinted head. Absolutely fantastic lacing, good retention, 15 minutes later a thin layer remains across the entire surface.

S - Sweet caramel, grapefruit, mango and apple citrusy aromas, quite grainy (maybe even a little roasty?). Mostly citrusy sweet and grainy. Not overwhelmingly bitter or sweet smelling.

T - Quite (surprisingly) up front, sweet citrusy fruit flavors kick in afterwards (grapefruit mostly) while the bitterness lingers all the way through the finish which is dry and bitter (which I quite like). Pretty simple but very dry and bitter (which is a good thing IMO)

M - Medium bodied or less, very refreshing as I find most dry/bitters. Appropriate (medium) carbonation.

O - Really the only knock on this would be price (probably not going to spend 14.99 for a sixer of this again) and the simplicity of the flavor/attributes (although dry and bitter are two of the best qualities I could hope for). Good for what it is, but not work the price IMO.
