yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
Can. Pours light amber with a fine textured tan head which forms peaks. Aroma is dominated by pungent, spicy-citrusy hops, with some fruity notes, slight pine, a bit of caramel and toast. Really nice. Taste is malty and bready up front, medium body, some hop flavour, and smooth bitterness in the finish.

piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
Canned sample. Hazy copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, pine sap, spruce needles, lemon, and a bit of caramel. Pink grapefruit, conifer, and heavy pale malts in the mouth. Balanced and not overly caramel-sweet on the palate, with a good amount of bitterness, but a surprisingly heavy body. Very much in the classic American IPA style. Solid overall.

Alpha10 (315) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2014
2014/02/05 - Pours a clear, orange-amber colour with a frothy, off edited head that lingers and laces nicely. Aroma is floral hops, tropical fruits, citrus, pine and toffee. Taste is pine, citrus, toffee and toasted malt. Nice balance between sweet and bitter. Aftertaste is toasted malts and astringent citrus/pine. Mouthfeel is slightly oily with lively carbonation and a crisp, bitter and drying finish. A descent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jkwood04 (3804) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 1, 2014
12oz bottle in a plastic hotel cup. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, light hops, and dough. Not sure about the freshness of this bottle, but the flavor isn’t great. Average texture. More of an amber ale than an IPA.

hoppybeerlover (42) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
Amberish pour, thin head. nose is floral, kinda tangy/soapy. flavor is slightly astringent. Not bad but hoped for better. odd finish

Quite resinous and dank, lots of pine, green and leafy, a touch peppery, some peach and apricot notes, caramel and toffee support as it warms, nice. Medium+ body with prickly carbonation. Quite resinous, dank, pine, peach and apricot, a bit peppery, caramel and deep toffee support, serious and stern; dry with pretty good bitterness and a caramel and toffee and resin finish.

worldbeertaste (1610) - AUSTRIA - JAN 15, 2014
Deep amber copper with a white, lacy, lasting frothy head. Smells of pine,tropical fruit, grapefruit firn tree, caramel. Nice hops. Sour taste right off the back with a caramel centre and a dry bitter pine finish. Sharp hop finish.

vadie (638) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Hazy yellow with a medium beige collar. The aroma of hops a bit fruity. The taste is hop. Perhaps this is a bit fruity, but rather bitter from start to finish. The palate is a bit creamy for an IPA.

mathieuc (1187) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2013 Pours a nice strong golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is fruity with pears dominating. Some light grassy notes. Taste is sweet and bitter with sweetness winning by an inch maybe. Flavors of fruits again, tropical with some pine accents. Litchees and pear is what I would describe them as. Pretty unique flavor profile. Bitter finish lingers for a long time. Mouthfeel is a little sticky, carbonation medium. Not sure how fresh this bottle was but it was still really tasty!
