Can: Poured a clear copper color ale with a nice tan color head with good retention with some good lacing. Aroma of dry hoppy notes with light dry caramel malt notes. Taste is also dominated by some dry hoppy caramel malt notes with light bitter ness at the end. Body is about average with good carbonation. Enjoyable and easily drinkable with good English-style hops presence.

Reddish tan color beige head goes to thin beige ring.Fine carbonation.
Flowery hops and some malt.
British IPA flavor with extra bitterness. It is on the British IPA side apart from some extra bitterness.
Easy to drink. You feel some of the alcohol afterwards. Perhaps too much watery feel? Well managed carbonation.
A nice balanced IPA on an Sunday afternoon.

From a 16 us oz can $2.50 can when you buy 4!

From a can. This beer is not an IPA, as others have noted, but more of a Canadian interpretation of what a really sweet IPA should be like. I mean, it's sweet, it's malty, and then, at the very end, it's bitter. That's an IPA, eh? This is a curiousity that I like because it shows how much taste and culture dominates beer. It's weird and tastes *just like every beer in Quebec to me* which is to say, malty and sweet. Except they made it better, because it's an IPA, eh?

Large, big bubbled head. It settles slowly, forming a dome on the decent. Minimal spots for lace. Light amber color and relatively clear.

Mild aroma of semi-sweet toasted malt. Very low hop nose.

The flavor has a strong toasted malt start with a notable hop bite in the swallow and aftertaste. Full bodied but with a sizable effervescence. The flavor has a touch of earthiness to it, but the hop dominates.

Amber-red in color, with small head that disappear quickly. An overly sweet smell, with bread hints. Overly sweet in the mouth too, way too malty with almost no hop taste. Really underwhelming.

Appearance - This beer pours a murky brownish Amber color, 2 fingers of off white head that fade leaving a ring around the outer edge of the glass.

Aroma - Caramelized malts, floral/herbal aroma, lemon, caramel light citrus.

Taste - Piney and eathy hops dominate the taste, something I was not expecting from the smell. pale and caramel malt backbone, some light citrus and a bready finish.

Feel - light almost watery body moderate carbonation sort of silky yet a tad bit prickly.

Overall - If they had labelled this an APA I would have rated it higher as elements of it remind me of good APA's I've tried. As An American Style IPA It lacks. I get where they were going was a west coast style IPA but the flavors just dont mesh as well as they should. This is ok but not great!
