On tap at Pinnacle Harbourfront in Vancouver. Pours a nice amber color with an eggshell-white head. Initial impression is a mild malt base and a decent dose of citrus and pine hops. Not a bomb by any means, but fairly well-balanced and refreshing.

I am shocked that this is rated so low. On draft in Banff. Exploding with hop aroma and flavor, this is a very good low malt pale ale. Side by side with other canadian pale ales, this was amazing. Very new american style

Granville Island IPA. Lots of expectation.
The look of it, you have that yellow, orange color.
The smell of it you have that typical IPA flavour coming out.
The taste of it is really enjoyable. Much better than those Alexander Keith IPA. I don t know much about IPA but this i better than others.
So overall would I recommend it ? Sure. I mean Im not a use fan of the IPA but once in a while you get take it a give it a try to the Granville Island IPA. This is much better than others on the market.
