Can. Nice. Lots of skunky hops, touch of cheese, big boozy aroma. Good stuff. Touch of caramel. Was a bit blasted at this stage.

Hazy orang wish body with almost no head. Aroma of hops and caramel. Taste is sweet and powerful switching to bitter and ending with hints of oak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
355ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Copper-orange in colour with a large and lingering off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is quite hoppy, lots of pine, citrus, caramel, earthy. The flavour is chewy and dry, lots of hop bitterness, earthy, pine and citrus. Moderately bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy. Nicely done, quite hoppy. Nice to have some real IPA’s in Ontario to choose from now.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Taster at the brewpub after the Toronto Marathon 10/18. Pours dark orange. Up front lots of great hop notes. Some nice malt backing, and the bitterness lasts. Medium in the mouth with lively carbonation. Wish this had wider release.

olio (8727) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2015
473 ml can @ Timo A. No freshness info.
Pours hazy amber color with a small head. Grassy aroma, pine, gooseberry bush, oily resin and hops. Gooseberries on the flavor, grapefruits, resinous hops and faint caramel malts. Feels very fresh, nice aroma, flavor is a bit of a let down though. Refreshing, maybe a bit too much gooseberries here.

Fat. Bärnstensfärgad öl med ett frostigt smutsvitt skum. Dofter av karamell, grapefrukt och tallbarr. Smakinslag av grapefrukt, karamell, kåda och malt. Oljig munkänsla, medel mot stor beska.

Kauge (1266) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2015 Can from LCBO. Pours a very dark amber with a light beige head. The nose disappointingly confusing, although I do get hints of sweet citrus, resin, jammy malts, and most noticeably cat pee and musk. Everything I love about an IPA but in this case these bricks really aren’t building anything. The flavour follows suit - I get all what I’m supposed to, but the result is far from convincing. Strangely, I get roasty, even coffee notes as it warms. On the palate it’s what I’d expect from a good modern IPA. But overall it just doesn’t do it for me. I’ve no idea how old this is, there’s no BB anywhere, so it’s possible the beer is past its best. I’ll probably try it again at the Brewpub.

Edit: did try it at the Brewpub. Chenged it from 3.2 to 3.3 - not really sure why, but it’s just not working for me even though theoretically it’s great.
