The write up on the back of the can is a joke. Octopus still features mosaic hops.

Personally I think GLB is tasting as great as ever. If you like IPAs and can get to the brewery, they're hands down the best in the province right now. 473ml tall cans, very well priced compared to other craft brewers, always super fresh stock available and delicious IPAs... what's not to love?


hey, like i said. if it's your thing it's your thing. have at it.

GLB watered down? Them some pretty harsh words that can be very harmful to a brewers reputation. Good thing GLB isn't actually watered down at all.

I'm not trying to be a dick but to say something of that gravity I'd hope you have some sort of proof or at least a lot of people that agree with you.

Yes to all of this.

And yeah the joke part about the 8 hops and 8 malts. I thought it was pretty obvious. Lol.

Another IPA that has gone downhill for me is Red Racer. It used to be all about the juicy grapefruit and I loved it. I'm not sure what's going on today but the flavours are much more faint. Their Imperial is pretty good though.

Yeah I can agree with the Red Racer. Ever since they went from small cans to tall cans, it's seems to have lost something.

Meh, I think with IPA's you get that 'chasing the dragon' effect. The more you drink the less you like...

I don't know how fresh the cans of RR were back when they were good, but these days I can't seem to find a can less than 3 months old.
