Gluepot (407) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
Fresh, punchy taste and nose permeate this IPA. The nose has an intriguing mixture of fresh hops, roasty caramel and malt and a hint of vanilla. The taste has a solid but non-astringent bitterness with some pine accents. The hops are underlayed by very tasty rich and sweet malt. Poppin’ balanced taste in this Amsterdam Breweries creation. A real treat.

shrubber85 (10589) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 Can. Lightly musty orange malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Cloudy amber with large light tan head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Lingering hops in the finish. Extra points for sponsoring the Trailer Park Boys.

wolffish (539) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
La mousse est quasi absente. C’est boisé, ça sent la fumée de tourbe et un peu terreux... Au goût, c’est bien sucré et je perçois du sarrazin (je suis peut-être dans le champs). À la fin de verre, c’était plus fruité; cerises, cassis et prunes.

shdougan (48) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours a nice hazy dark amber with a thin white head. Strong citrus aromas, lots of grapefruit, and notes of pine. Has a medium-full body with an average carbonation, a very refreshing brew. Has a really nice sweet grapefruit-like flavor that introduces a gradually building bitterness that compliments the malt backbone quite well. Very good, very interesting IPA.

Franckg (1120) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Odeur de houblons frais et de pin. En bouche, c’est plutôt léger (et dangereux) pour du 7.1% ABV. Le pamplemousse et le citron sont dominant avec des pointes de résine de pin. Très frais. L’amertume est modérée avec un bon goût d’agrumes amères. Très bonne ipa pour les journées ensoleillées.

baldric (16) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
12 oz bottle - pours hazy almost cloudy amber. There was lots of sediment in the bottle consistent with the claim of "naturally carbonated". Nice aroma, though not overt - just subtle. Off white head- generous at first with nice lacing but dissipates quickly. On the palate this is a superb beer with a beautiful balance. Solid bitterness but balanced nicely with the rich malt. Lots of tropical fruit through the middle and a bit of piney resin in the finish. Poured a second as soon as the first was finished. I’d say it is a success.

Metalflake (73) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Can from the LCBO, poured into a shaker glass. Pours a deep cloudy orange, with a thin head that hangs around. Aromas of pine resin and bitter citrus peel, floral hints around the edges. Bitter and hoppy, with less alcohol presence than the 7.1%ABV would suggest. Very sessionable, but a bit too bitter for my tastes as an everyday drinker.

Travlr (21204) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Draft. Clear amber color, medium white head. Aroma of light pine and citrus. Taste has biscuity malts, pine resin, decent balance, light body.

bjakk (701) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - DEC 16, 2014
A gift from my Canadian friend Melissa. Orange, clear, yellow head that lasts somewhat. Flower, heath, apricot in the aroma. Malty mildly burned bitterness that grows in the aftertaste.
