This is Steamwork's seasonal IPA. A well hopped, American style IPA. Aroma of citrus/grapefruit, pine and fruit. Each sip gives hints of lychee, with the bitterness coming through at the end. Not crazily hopped like Californian IPAs, but very well balanced. Great tasting beer IMO. Best Canadian brewed IPA imo.

At the Gaztown brewpub. Like a cask brew, with understated carbonation. Hoppy with lace. Creamy mouthfeel that's middling and dangerous. A bit of grapefruit colour. High IBU and different and better than the Empress IPA, there's residual malt, and surely drinkable.

Steamworks has great seasonals but some of their regular beers lack including their regular IPA. Well this hopped up version is hugely better than the regular version. Grapefruit hoppy nose, lots of hops in the body and a real nice balance that comes out in the finish. Tastes a lot like Phillips IPA in its fresh hop profile. It would be great if this replaced the regular IPA.
