Pours an amber colour. Has a good fat finger width gold tinged head, with large foamy bubbles. Has a nice hoppy taste with slight bitterness as you would expect from a good IPA. Foams in your mouth, and finishes slightly sweet. One of my personal favorites, delicious by any standard, any occasion!

Beautiful orange colour. Very fruity, piney, dank and citrusy from the hops. Slightly caramelly sweet malt background. Crisp carbonated medium to light mouth feel. Definitely a good, sessionable IPA from both beginners and seasoned hop heads.

Oh yeah. I'm liking this.

Pours a moderate head that settles to a thin film, leaves fine lace. Muddy, hazy orange colour. Great nose, smells fresh and inviting. Oranges, pine laid over a sweet malt. Very appetizing.

Hoppy and citrus to taste. Lots of orangey goodness. Noticeable carbonation, but not overwhelming. This is a very, very tasty brew.

Well done. Recommended.

4.33/5  rDev +15.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: gorgeous deep amber; clear; solid, tan head with great length

Aroma: citrus and tropical hops - orange, pineapple, mango golden raisin - and a hint of pine too

Taste & Mouthfeel: those hope aromas are coming through in the taste, but with a stronger resinous pine flavour, predominantly in the finish when it all but takes over; floral notes too, pollen; like a walk through a garden; properly balanced with malt and tree sap sweetness; spot on carbonation and medium body makes for an easy-drinking brew

Overall: from the first taste I knew this was one of my new favourite IPAs; the hop flavours have flow, being gentle but not weak, and very interesting; very well crafted

A most excellent IPA, in a province where there are two other heavy-hitters in the market (Hop Head & Paddy-whack from Kelowna & Nelson, respectively) plus another from a bit further afield (Amnesiac, from Victoria).
I have enjoyed many Revelstoke brews over the years but this one is my new favorite of theirs.

Nice hop aroma, caramel malt notes + a pleasant bitterness in the taste. Looks good in a glass too.
Very drinkable. Nice!

Props to my BA in crime andrenaline for the B.C. haul
A - poured a clear copper golden with a solid thumb of head that retained well, strong lacing
S - nice mix of piney and floral hop aromas, some sweet caramels malt notes, and hints of tart citrus
T - pleasing floral and more subtle pine up front, balanced subtly but well with caramel and smoky malts, some grapefruit flavours with a peppery finish
M - medium carbonation, full flavours giving way to pleasant bitter and slightly dry feel
D - very well balanced feels and flavours, good hop flavours but so biting as some IPA's get, impressed all around

650 ml bomber poured into bomber 15/6/11

A clear copper with a fast falling thumbs width of cream colored foam that fall quickly and leaves a few random patches of lace

S guava, tangerine, grapefruit rind and some pine, pretty solid nose for a IPA, just a little caramel but mostly tropical fruits

T a little toned down compared to the smell but very similar with more caramel, some pineapple and slightly more pine then the nose

M medium bodied and creams up from the bubbles and leaves a little behind on your gums

O decent IPA for sure with a great nose and solid in all other areas

5$ for a bomber is a deal in my books, I could smell this one the second the cap hissed and can't think of a reason for you to not try this brew.

Golden brown apperance with bubbly white head that slowly settles down leaving some lacing. Smell consists of malt, hops, citrus with a hint of brown sugar and various fruit, impressive so far.

Taste is simar to the smell, consists of citrus, brown sugar, floral hops. Fruit taste consists of orange, mangos and grape fruit. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Aftertaste is a citrusy, grassy taste.

Overall, this is a clean and tasty beer. The fruit alone is up for interpretation. If you come across a bottle, I recommend you pick it up.
