look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Clear bronze, finger of head held its own well with plenty of wispy lacing
S - Tropical fruit, light perfume, grainy, mild spice
T - Tropical fruit, bubble gum, light pepper and ginger, grainy malt
M - lightish body, slightly creamy, mild bitter finish
O - the fruity and spicy character of this gives this a unique quality, very tasty with the alcohol well hidden, this is worth buying the mixer pack on its own

Another selection from their 'Celebration' mixer pack.

A - Pours a clear copper colour with an amber hue, thumb of head with solid retention and nice sheeting lacing.

S - Scent offers up a sweet citrus and earthy pine hop notes, a buttery finish with hints of toasted almonds.

T - Flavour profile is quite nice, the hops are sweet and sugary with hints of pineapple, lemon iced tea and earthy pine. The finish offers up a buttery caramel flavour alongside a bitter citrus rind finish.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and a touch of dryness.

O - This is a tasty IPA and hits all the characteristics of the style. A great tasting brew that is easy drinking and well worth picking up. The higher ABV is a nice treat as well.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: It has a nice semi-cloudy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of grassy and piney hops along with some citrus and grapefruit and some sweet caramelly malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, the grassy and piney notes are dominant, some citrus and some sweet bready and caramelly malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. Nice to see a new IPA in Ontario but it doesn't compete with the others.

Another bottle in the 10th Anniversary pack. The main reason I bought it.

Chill hazed chestnut pour. Two finger, soapy off white head. Lacing is glued to glass in sheets.

Sweet malt, dank pine and grass. Slight citrus of grapefruit and orange. There is a touch of strawberry.

Sweet malts, resinous pine with a little grapefruit. Very grassy, with a lingering aftertaste.

Light body, slightly chewy, good carbonation.

Amber-ruby red, cap of white head, some lace. Smell is full of piney hops, some citrus, grapefruit, orange, grassy, floral notes as well, substantial malt bill as well, a bit bready. Taste is a big dry bitterness upfront, lightly sweet fruit notes, grapefruit, fairly bitter with a some malt, light pine and citrusy aftertaste. Light-medium prickly carbonation, some hop oil, medium body. Solid effort from these guys, however with a bunch of quality IPA coming from Ontario this doesn't score among the highest available however it doesn't rank among the lowest, something I would order again but not necesarily stock my fridge with.

355ml Bottle from the holiday mixed 6 pack for 13$

Appearance - Clear dark copper colour with an average size fizzy beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes.

Smell - Malts, hops, grassy notes, caramel, cereal/cookies

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste hops, malts, and a fair bit of caramel/cookies sweetness. There is also a light grassiness and only a slight amount of fruity notes. It ends with a malty slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall - Reminds me of a ESB more than a AIPA.. its a english style tasting IPA if anything. There is a fair amount of hop bitterness.. but it's a bit harsh/astringent tasting. With all of the great IPA's out there, I have no reason to drink this one again. It did get better as it warmed.
