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.

sudomorph (384) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
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!

duckdown (81) - GTA, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
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.

Freaky_tiki (403) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2013
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.

HipHopOpotamus (216) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2013
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.

draft at Bar Hop, Toronto, copper colored pour, medium bodied, average lacing. Caramel malt heavy in both aroma & flavor, milder bitterness. Too malty for me
