Good head. Good retention. Golden.
Great crisp taste with pine that stays on the tongue a long time. Love that part. Light bitterness. Great clean brew.

Hazy straw colour with a nice 2 finger hear that has retention that keeps a layer on top for the duration of the drink. Nice lacing. Citrus grapefruit smell is nice and strong and pleasant. Taste of grapefruit with some orange. Plenty of hops with some malt hiding in the wings. Feels dry with an excellent amount of aftertaste to keep you happy. Pleasant carbonation. Flavourful and fun to drink.

Nice looking design on this can.

Beer pours a slightly darker golden hue with a very frothy and active off white head. Lots of pine going on here with a somewhat salty accent thrown in as well. Nice robust character and very easy to drink.

Awesome to be able to try a Canadian brew that I probably never would have had the chance to if it wasn't gifted to me. Thanks to Coronaeus for the generosity.

A promising pine smell. Anti-climactic on the taste - was expecting a hop explosion as per the description of being "pine bow[ed] across the face". "Mounds" of hops, but 60 IBUs. Hops: summit, simcoe, Columbus, and Chinook. Dry and lingering aftertaste -perhaps from the Canadian 2-row barley and carafoam.

Can from the LCBO. Dated December 16th, 2014. Served in a Cantillon tulip.

A - Pours with two fingers of off-white foam that settles to a collar and partial cap. Specks of lace dot the sides of the glass. Slightly hazed golden body.

S - Big C hop aroma, with tons of zesty orange and grapefruit. A bit of tropical fruit, and a sugary malt backdrop. I'd say more Midwest than West Coast in balance, but quite punchy all the same.

T - Taste is heavier on the mix of grapefruit rind and hop bitterness. There's a mild yeasty bread note mid-palate that doesn't totally integrate, but for the most part it's an aggressively hop-forward beer without being overly bitter or astringent. Less sweetness for sure.

M - Medium body, super dry, with pleasant moderate carbonation. Lingering oils on the palate. No discernible alcohol.

D - Probably the best IPA regularly available at the LCBO. Just make sure to check the freshness. Happily guzzled a can on a Sunday night while catching up with friends. This might turn into a new go-to beer while I'm in Toronto.

473ml can into nonic pint. brewed with summit, simcoe, columbus, and chinook hops. canned nov. 19, 2014, enjoyed on dec. 17, 2014

a: a somewhat opaque but glowing light orange or golden mango kind of colour. two fingers of dense, fluffy, bone-hued head. little lacing

s: super pungent hop punch -- citrusy and tropical. pineapple, orange, mango, grapefruit, pine. slight caramel character coming through

t: excellent stuff. big pop of fruits up front -- pineapple, bitter pink grapefruit, sweet ripe oranges, slight mango. then comes this bitter and hugely dank pine kick in the middle. the caramel malt flavours are there towards the end, but are subdued. the finish is clean and dry

m: medium mouthfeel, medium-minus carbonation, slightly creamy

o: the hop profile is massive and excellent here, both in the aroma and in the taste
