Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Finger and a half fluffy off-white head with long retention. Amber colored IPA with very high clarity. Looks alright.

S- Maltier than I had expected. Candi sugars? Another surprise. Aroma is less like an IPA and more like a Belgian strong ale in my opinion. Not bad, but unexpected.

T- Tastes alcoholic and with caramel malts it seems like... not an IPA. Marshmallow, butter, caramel and some earthy north west hops. Odd balance of flavors.

M- Watery, very watery.

O- Relatively disappointing beer. Not what I expected.

Canned 5/29/13 - poured into glass.

Head rises slowly into tan foam, brew sits deep, clear, ruby red.

Mild, dry, airy, earthy, grassy aroma. Not a stand out IPA aroma...

Very light in flavor, but holds a heavy burn. Not very complex or smooth, kinda harsh with dry pine flavor. Thin, watery, not impressive. Nicely smooth and complementing carbonation, distracting dry burn in the back of my throat. Pinesol and Mr. Clean come to mind.

I imagine Kettle House can do better, providing more vivid flavors and deeper complexity. Can't quite recommend, but drinks (kinda) easy for a hot day.

Appearance- orange amber with thin lacing on the glass

Smell- mild light malt sweetness, some of the floral hop character comes to play as well but is on the lighter end

Taste- hop bitterness is on the lighter side and sweetness is a bit subtle without much assertion

Mouthfeel- light and easily drinkable

Overall- mild IPA, a very slightly upped grain and hop bill would distinct this beer a bit more. I've tasted this in a can and I remember it being more impressive.

Received a 4 pack of this in the parking lot of the Laughing Dog Brewery from Vern, the rep who brings Idaho and Montana beers into Alberta these days. Thanks! From a 473 ml blue can. Pours out a clear burnished copper hue, tall foamy off-white head that retains well.

Clean floral and citrus hops on the nose, toffee and clean grains as well.

Clean biscuit and caramel malt up front in the flavour, spicy, herbal hops in the middle, with more spicy hops on the finish, and a clean yet herbally astringent aftertaste.

Medium-bodied mouthfeel, smooth silky texture with medium carbonation.

If not for the abv% this would make an ideal session ale, and that aside, it still makes a great offering to spend an evening with. Very clean on all fronts, yet strikes me more as an English IPA than an American based on the flavour profile of the hops, but that's merely from the lack of whollaping grapefruit in the mix. Definitely an IPA worth checking out, I hope to see more of this available locally sometime soon.
