IPA Light. Looks like pineapple juice. A light thin head with a mild hoppiness. A little bland but would probably be good on a hot summer morning. My first Canadian IPA. Not too bad eh.

Cloudy yellow pour with irregular chunky white head - aromas of bright citrus, pine. Taste is bitter grapefruit, piney hops, with some sweet floral under tones. Finishes a little thin, lingering bitterness - had just had an All Day IPA and think this does not hit that quality for the style but very enjoyable.

16oz canned 12/9/17 (46 days ago) poured into a snifter at fridge temp 4.4% ABV. The beer pours not quite bright yellow with short lived off white head. The head recedes to a few bubbles and a thin ring. The aroma is fairly strong with grapefruit, orange and berry. The taste is somewhat bitter orange with a trace of pineapple and earth. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, adequately carbonated and dry in the finish. Overall, very good for session IPA. No watery aftertaste that's typical for session IPAs.

Hazy, almost opaque straw with a huge fluffy white head. Long-last retention, and sheets of lacing.

The aroma is a bit muted, but I get some orange peel, lemon, white peach, pineapple, and honeydew melon.

The flavor is a lots of orange and grapefruit, some lemon, undertones of peach, pineapple, and honeydew melon. Simple crackery malt. A dry and earth undertone. Finishes lightly dry, with just touch of bitterness, and some lingering orange and lemon peel.

The mouthfeel is expectedly thin, but not too thin. Slightly creamy upfront, with medium-high carbonation.

A really nice session IPA. I wish it was fresher, but still tasty enough to review. Worth buying!

Better than moderate head. The lace forms patchy blankets on the glass. The liquid has a white haze to the otherwise lemony yellow color.

Pale ale malt start to the smell. The hop is present in a subtle way.

The flavor is more bitter than I expected with the malt being more subdued on the tongue. Relatively thin bodied with ample carbonation, this beer feels like a session beer even though the flavor is potent. The finish is prickly with a raw hop pellet bite. Long aftertaste.

Hey look, a session IPA! Lots of flavor with that hoppiness and low ABV, right? Great!
Nope. Big lies.

Look: Cloudy with a chance of boring yellow.

Smell: It's a very strong scent. Could smell it from a good two feet away upon first pouring it into my glass. Definitely that typical "IPA scent" to it. Tangerines and lemon peel comes to mind. A tad bit skunky too, I think.

Taste: Reminds me of rain water. The beer makes me hate mosaic hops.

Feel: Actually nice. Runs off the tongue well, doesn't linger, and is just right on the way back up from a burp. Very carbonated, this.

Overall: Yeah whatever. Collective Arts definitely hits their can design well though. Good on that.

Craft brewery finds a way to make water.
Collective Arts, along with Great Lakes, is my favourite Ontario brewery but this one is a worthless effort. True, I am not a fan of session IPA as it is a beer substitute, made purposefully that way back in WWI England. But just because something has a history, doesn't make it a good style.
This here is neither refreshing, nor good tasting, leaving a weird, sticky film on your lips and throat. It does give you a quick headache as well.
The artwork on the can however is fantastic as always.
