Metalchopz (2287) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2013
Comes in a 6-pack at the LCBO. An unfiltered IPA... nice ! Now rated at 7.1% ABV. Pours a dark amber colour with an off-white average head and long retention that gives out good dirty lacing. You can also see the tiny particles floating all-around. Piney aromas well-balanced by the fruitiness of the 7 different malts. Very nice drinkability with a not-too thick mouthfeel, and no burning at all. Again, a nice balance between the bitter hops (grapefruit rind) and the malts (caramel, citrus fruits). The mild dryness and strong bitterness from the hop really lingers for a while. Quite a nice offering from Amsterdam and for those who enjoy the hop, but well-blended.

neongolden (413) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2013
(355ml bottle from the LCBO) Poured murky brownish amber with a big fluffy white head that left a lot of lace, and some floaty bits of sediment below. Aroma is soapy, resiny, woody coniferous hops with some rounded pit-fruit type aromas but not too much citrus. Also a fair bit of caramel malt aroma behind. Flavour is again slightly soapy pine resin and fruit, not a sharp citrus peel bite, meshing reasonably well with the sweet caramel and light biscuit of the malts. Moderate bitterness throughout, finishes fairly dry and hoppy with a hint of malt sweetness. Fairly full mouthfeel, carb a bit lower than average, a bit creamy. A good IPA but something a little weird about the hop profile, a little less refreshing than most.

Canmoore (260) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
355 mL bottle from LCBO, pours a murky amber with incredible lacing. Strong aroma’s of pine, citrus, yeast, and caramel. Taste begins with a kick of piney hops, followed by some citrus notes, than a smooth malty finish. An excellent balanced brew. So far the best IPA I have had to date, this beer is fermented in the bottle so there is a layer of yeast on the bottom. I swirled the last bit of the beer and took it in..yum!!

bunget (552) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2012
355ml bottle. Cloudy orange body, medium white head, nice amount of lacing. Aroma of spruce, caramel, grapefruit and flowers. Taste strongly bitter upfront, piney, caramel, wormwood. Kind of lite body for the style.

jjarovi (55) - markham, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2012
Amazing IPA on draft at Bar Volo. Great balance and flavours with all the hop you expect in a great IPA. Always a safe choice for a great IPA. Top 3 in Town.

presario (4629) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 23, 2012
Scent starts out soapy before mellowing out to woodiness. Hazy light copper. Good woody IPA. Solid malt and mouth feel. Pairs well with tomato soup at Beerbistro.

Bouteille 12 oz. Merci Gilles. Couleur ambrée, mousse blanche. Ya de la neige dans ça ! Arôme de houblon, gazon, terre. En bouche, malt, grains, houblon frais. Très bonne.

Frothmeister (559) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
355ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a beige head. Big tropical fruit on the nose with some definite resinous notes. Heavy hops all around, with alcohol, and faint caramel. The taste starts with some nice tropical notes, but quickly gets lost in a giant cloud of resinous slightly astrigent hops with some sweet undertones, and a long bitter "Extra Strong Fisherman’s Friends" finish. There’s not much malt in the picture, the hops do all the talking, and maybe a little too much.

fiulijn (14599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
Draught at Volo, Toronto
Hazy amber color, with red hue; creamy head. Nice resiny hop aroma, although revealing some crystal in the background. Lean mouthfeel; caramel flavor, some disturbing crystal; strong bitterness, not too resiny, and just lightly fruity.
Sturdy IPA.

Pours a dark amber with small floaties and a nice velvet beige head. Aroma is deep citrus and grapefruit. Taste is a sharp citrus and grapefruit hop bitterness that slightly dries the palate. Nicely off set with sweet malts. Great beer.
