3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341 mL bottle. A little on the dark side for the style, not that thatís a problem. This one is alittle rough around the edges and/or unrefined. Thatís okay, there are lots of refined IPAís out there. You couldnít drink more than a couple of theses in a sitting, though.

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, donít be...uh...mad.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

Fantastic ipa. Iíd never heard of it before and ordered it. Great looking bottle, poured surprisingly dark with hints of red. Continuously hopped apparently, wasnít 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.

One of the best beers Iíve ever had. Local to Toronto Ontario goes well with meat and intelligent discussions.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some light malts. Taste is a light grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation which pleases the palate. A solid IPA that is worth a try.
