Sammy (8954) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2005
Five hops and six malts undisclosed. Big head, nice bitter. 85 IBU. A choice of a session ale. Bitterness offset by malt in a nice smooth balance. Better than average IPA and finishes crisp and clean

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2009
Amber hazy beer. This head with a sticky white lacing. Very, very hoppy aroma. Pine and light citrusy grapefruit resinousness. Bright and fresh and bracing, like sucking on pine cones and grapefruit peels. There is also a little touch of orange peel as well. Very lean pale maltiness that just stands aside and lets the hops work their magic. This is like a little taste of the Northwest here in the Northeast.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2010 The Lure:
Multifarious hoppiness emulates grapefruit, pine trees and lemons. Supporting malt is perceived, but without any distinctive signature. John Kimmich is the king of dry hopping on the east coast.

The Festivities:
Tiny bubbles appear within the citrusy and peppery hops. Their rising bitterness reaches grass and resins, lingering beautifully, Soft biscuity and bready malts participate, as well. This recipe seems quite similar to Two Hearted Ale’s, so why isn’t this lauded as one of the country’s great IPAs? The perfume is as beautiful, the hop flavor is perfectly integrated to the cereals, the mouthfeel is suave, there are two alcohol points less, so more drinkability, and perhaps a tad more bitterness. This is brimming with quality and vivacity.

Transcendence:
Shouting life.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Sampled on tap at the brewpub on 9/18/07: Pours a hazy orange bronze with a nicely-lacing wispy off-white head. Aroma of big fresh grapefruity hops and lightly sweet pale malt. Body starts fairly full with some biting carbonation and a big bittering hoppy flavor toward a drier lingering bitter finish. Could use a little more sweet caramely flavor.

deyholla (7024) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a near clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges and laced slightly. Aroma was mainly piney with a bit of backing grapefruit and grass. Flavor began with pine, which remained strong through out the beer as was backed by a combination of grain, hay and grass.
