4.25/5  rDev +16.8%

Served in a bottle at the Flying Beaver in Richmond. Wood, peach, grapefruit and floral notes point towards a likely Galena and Centennial hop combo. Slight caramel sweetness in the background, medium viscosity and carbonation. A good, old school American craft IPA.

On tap at Lift Bar & Grill (Vancouver), served in a tulip. Straightforward, middle-of-the-road IPA. Unassuming malty body, citrus and pine hops, lightly bitter. Crisp, clean feel.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a nice clear, clean dark golden amber color with a half-inch of white head that had low retention and good lacing.

The aroma was mostly a nice mix of citrus and pine hops, with just a bit of malt in the background. On the tongue, there was a bit more of a malt base, but the flavor were pretty much the same pine and citrus hops, and the beer had a slightly bitter finish.

The body was solidly full, for the style, without being heavy or sticky, and had a clean, dry finish. Drinkability was good, you'd be happy enough having a couple of these. Overall, a solid and good take on the style, even if it isn't particularly notable. Certainly worth a shot if you see it.

This is almost an interesting IPA, almost... Decent head, maybe a little too pale and clear? Smells great even though not overwhelming. Tastes weak. Still better than your Samuel Adams Rebel IPA but definitely weak. Too bad because the aromas are great, just not strong enough. Well balanced. The mouthfeel is a bit too much on the lighter side.
