vadie (711) - 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 (1284) - 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!

ametras (403) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
473ml can. Pours cloudy copper with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel and citrus with floral notes. Taste is pine, toffee, malt sweetness and alcohol. Medium body, good carbonation, oily texture. Warm, earthy and bitter finish.

TheJester (1874) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
341 mL bottle. A little on the dark side for the style, not that that’s a problem. This one is alittle rough around the edges and/or unrefined. That’s okay, there are lots of refined IPA’s out there. You couldn’t drink more than a couple of theses in a sitting, though.

Helsdon (159) - Toronto, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Pours old-penny brown with a light brown head that sticks around with some lacing. Smells of hops and pine. The taste has a lot going on with it. Definitely citrusy hops, apricot, and cam. Very nice creamy mouth feel, mildly bitter aftertaste. Might be my new hoppy beer of choice. Sorry Mad Tom, don’t be...uh...mad.

What a treat! Nice hops on the nose. Some excellent balance - has some oomph.

Cantabrian (823) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 22, 2013
Taster, from the King & Portland flight at the brewery in Toronto. Cloudy gold-copper with a firm white head, aromas of tropical fruits, with a delicious fruits and pine taste and a tremendous bitterness that never gets nasty, but only classy. The mouthfeel is just as resinous as one would expect for a beer of this calibre. Great beer for a great place.

tom10101 (2781) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle (355 ml). Extra from Andy, thanks! Clear golden/amber with a medium off-white and good lacing. Aroma is malt, tropical fruits, caramel and floral notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with caramel, tropical fruits, floral notes and light alcohol. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel and dry finish. Decent IPA. Quite drinkable at first, but it then become a bit harsh/heavy on alcohol after a couple of sip. Too much malt/caramel.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle at Beer Revolution. 7.1% Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, super pink grapefruit, tangerine, Taste is more of the same, dry hops and cakey malts dominating the flavour, with a dose of pink grapefruit sweetness sure to last. Fantastic IPA out of TO

NatKadaw (95) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
Fantastic ipa. I’d never heard of it before and ordered it. Great looking bottle, poured surprisingly dark with hints of red. Continuously hopped apparently, wasn’t sure how it might stack up to 60/90 minute, but had its own distinct and smooth hoppiness. Would buy this all the time if it was available in Edmonton year round.
