A big IBU, a 1.5X IPA.. A tad of age in the aroma, and off flavour in the finish, yet still a good IPA. Very drinkable. Big bubbly head on golden body.Citrus,piney, creamy, malting is in the minority, not a match for the up front hops.

Pours a pale, golden amber. Mildly cloudy. Nice bone white head. Good retention, lots of lacing. Good looking beer. The head is foamy and thick. The aroma is heavy on sweet citrus and tropical fruit hop flavors. I'm getting a lot of tangerine and pineapple, particularly. There's also some kiwi, raspberry, grapefruit, a little spruce and wildflowers. Some honey-ish malt sweetness in the background. The taste has lots of hop flavor, a good mix of malt sweetness and hop bitterness and a solid, crisp finish. It's mildly dry, overall, but there are some sweeter flavors bouncing around in the beer. Medium bitter finish. Lingering tangerine peel finish. There's some hop oiliness to the beer, and it has a decent body for the abv, but it's still pretty light on the palate. Very easy to polish off a bomber. I had to slow down a bit for the review. Solid IPA from Drake's, though I don't quite understand why it's a special release. If Drake's put this in their regular lineup or even made it into a multi-batch seasonal, I'd be happy, and I think it would do a lot for their image, not that there's anything currently wrong with it, of course. However, this beer could make them stand out a bit more.
