2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours orange with a thick off white head. Aroma of bitter hops, maybe a little spicy. Flavour of very subtle caramel malts and harsh bitter hops. Medium body with a just barely sticky feeling. Finish over powered by bitterness that rests in the back of the throat.

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a deep cloudy copper with a one finger beige head. Aroma is up front pine with but a good background of citrus and caramel. Bitter at beginning middle and end but the malts keep it under control. Alcohol shows up in the long bitter finish. Medium creamy body with slightly soft carbonation. One of my favourite local IPAs.

Slim beige head on a cloudy copper body with sediment. aromas of pine, grapefruit and nuts. Flavor is bitter mashup of varieties of malts and hops and tangy citrus. Dry mouthfeel with a medium lasting aftertaste.

Draft at bier market restaurant in Toronto. Going by memory. Great floral/ citrus hop flavors with creamy texture. Fuller bodied. Complex. I enjoyed this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Barvolo.
Pours a translucent, copper colour with a frothy, two finger, off white head that lasts. Great carbonation streaming up. Looks great! Nice lacing.
Aroma is hops with a hint of fruit. Citrus.
Taste is a bit bitter but not over the top. Balanced well. Slight bitter/sour aftertaste. A bit dry.
Low to medium body and carbonation. A touch watery in the mouth.
Interesting beer. Not your regular IPA. Well worth a try!

Gotta say I’m disappointed in this one. I had such high expectations after reading others reviews, but sadly this one just does not work for me. The appearance is great, aroma is nice, but the taste and more importantly palatability is just not working for me. I love hoppy beers and IPA’s by all accounts but this stuff has a seriously BITTER, astringent, almost borderline sour aftertaste that is just lingering way too long. High marks for aroma & appearance but low marks for taste & palate. I seem to be in the minority, however.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Shakes out of the bottle into the glass as a dark pour with a one finger milkshake cap. Aroma slightly muted. Taste is a hoppy punch to the mouth. I like the booze in this. Bitterness shows just on time in the finish. My fav Amsterdam offering -- wait their imperial stout is pretty kickass too -- and a six pack I will reach for often.

Purchased at LCBO, have purchased a 6 pack a few times over the winter this year. Very hoppy, strong taste that stays in your mouth. Has quite a bit of settlement floating around at the bottom of the bottle. Good IPA overall.
