swoopjones (5602) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2013
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

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
Bouteille 355ml. De couleur ambrée-orangée foncée et légèrement voilée. Nez de houblon moyennement citrique, résineux, fruité (agrumes) et herbeux, de malt sucré, léger de caramel doux avec des traces de butterscotch. Moyen-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux notes huileuses. Goût moyennement amer de houblon citrique, moyennement fruité (agrumes, traces d’abricots), légèrement herbeux et résineux (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt sucré avec un moyen goût de caramel doux puis en finale l’amertume de houblon s’intensifie très légèrement tout en se faisant plus herbeuse, plus résineuse et légèrement asséchante. Post-goût long et légèrement sec, moyen-amer de houblon résineux, moyennemenbt citrique, herbeux et fruité (agrumes et zestes) avec des notes résiduelles de caramel.

TylerJonScott (69) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2013
Pours dark mahogany colour with a thick off white head. Tastes of earthy malts with nice yeast profile smooth mouth feel. Almost too smooth because they go down to easy for a 7.1. Awesome IPA!

CraftBeerNick (826) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle at home, 19th May 2013. Pours fairly dark in colour, tasty, good strong fruit hop taste, carbonation is about right, not totally smooth, but enjoyable

Ferris (2889) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle - Fresh pine and grapefruit, with a bit of grain and spice. Amber with a thick white head. Grains, malt and resin with a hop finish. Easy drinking but not as hoppy as I would prefer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pushkinwow (1954) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2013
341ml bottle. Slightly opaque amber with a nice creamy off white head. Slightly musty resin hops, some semi sweet caramel malts, light hints of citrus. Moderate+ body, moderate carbonation, slightly astringent, quite dry, some grapefruit and mango on the finish along with a touch of alcohol. A decent offering although seems slightly off balance. Encouraging.

clmillar83 (4) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2013 does not count
Unfortunately, I am disappointed to report I am not a fan of this beer. It has a funky flavour, and not in a good way for me. 7.1% alcohol content is a bonus though! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crockett (1005) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2013
Fairly average stuff. But great by Amsterdam standards. Pours a honey/light orange with just about as much haze as anything else that doesn’t mention that it’s unfiltered. Nose of tropical fruits, lots of piney grassy hops and a bit of alcohol. Flavours are similar and expected. Not sure if it has citra hop in there, but it seems like it. It is in your face then kind of gets a little wishy washy in the finish. Booze is well hidden, until you wake up the next morning.

dinkle50 (943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2013
Reddish cloudy amber pour. Thin head fades quick. Some lace. Grassy dank aroma. Slight poop smell. Medium mouth and slightly astringent. Taste is very bitter. Mostly grassy. This is a palate killer.

Strangebrewer (829) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
bottle. Poured dark amber with quite a bit of sediment, small white head with nice lace. Perfumey hop aroma. Heavy mouthfeel with a lingering astringent finish. Tart grapefruit and grassy flavours, moderately bitter, noticeable alcohol.
