Poured a golden-orange body with large head that faded slowly and left lace ring down glass. The aroma is mainly citric, floral hops with some grapefruit (almost tropical) fruit notes (w/ minimal malts). Light to medium body, crisp, citric hop bite is strong, mild bitterness due to balance thanks to grapefruit and caramel malts; the malts add a little heft on balance and finish and beer is real easy to drink (great sipper). M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

A: Hazy yellow in color and a an off white head.

S: Big citrus and tropical fruits. Orange, pineapple, and mango.

T: Big tropical fruit with citrus, and grapefruit. Solid bitterness, but not so much that it takes away the juicy hop goodness. Touch of simcoe in there.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Overall a solid IPA, and bonus point given for Canada's health care system, and general coolness.

Can dated 2/17:
I poured this from the can into the glass and actually noted the general clarity of the stream flowing from the can. Step back, and the beer has a significant, but not completely blocking haze, as evidenced by the thinner part of the glass used. The head is in perfect proportions to the body on a transfer of moderate aggression.

The nose hit me during the pour. It's a lovely combo of tropical notes (mango and even a little coconut), grassy reeds (maybe a little lemongrass), and accents of garlic/onion and citrus rind. It starts bright, but has a bitter undertone that I sometimes describe as rotting citrus rinds - which isn't nearly as bad as it sounds.

The taste follows the pattern of the nose. Bright and leading with the tropical fruits, backed by a bitterness that goes grassy/pithy to maybe slightly vegetal. Luckily there isn't a garlic/onion bite (IMO).

The feel is medium bodied, with a drying bitter back. There is an aspect of it, though, that I am finding more and more I don't like. There's a clinging aspect to the beer that leaves a not-so-desirable-to-me film on my tongue.

The nose and taste start out quite enjoyable. The feel does slowly build to the point where I am not sure I want more than one of these at a time. I am finding this more and more with a fair number of hazy IPAs. Slowing down my intake (which is increased when trying to review) helps, at least.
