samzim (205) - Ontario, - MAR 16, 2013
Aroma of fresh floral hops, pine, and lettuce. Cloudy amber colour with a minimal head. Medium body that begins with citrus and mild hops, then finishes with a strong bitter hoppy flavour of whole horseradish root. Great beer though a bit overly bitter towards the end.

Pleasant IPA goodness subtle and refreshing. Refreshing is not a term used by yours truly for IPA style generally.

Acebulf (5) - - SEP 10, 2014 does not count
Earthy aroma, bordering on yeasty. Appearance is a completely opaque dark-orange. Pours with a massive head that lingers, very heavy carbonation throughout. The taste is of earthy dark malt, with pure bitterness on the backend. Although others note citrus notes, I did not experience any. Found it extremely lacking in balance. Bordering on disgusting. Did not finish.

This unfiltered IPA has a beautiful citrus aroma and an amber colour. A very hoppy beer with a nice malt balance.

manuelMTL (70) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a dark clear amber with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is strong floral and piney hops with grapefruit and mango notes. Strong malty sweetness. Light citrus and grapefruit notes on the tongue with a long strong lingering piney bitterness with a malty backbone. Hop forward with dominant bitterness but well balanced beer.

Gethinbeer (2154) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Hazy amber pour with a frothy white head and clinging lace. Caramel, tropical fruit hop aroma. Tasty IPA. Fruit hop, caramel hints. Bitter pine needle finish. Not as good as I remember having it Toronto but very happy to have it on the east coast.

HopsandBolts (73) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
Appearance: Pours a hazy deep copper colour with about a finger of white head that fades pretty quickly. Aromas: Pine, hops, nuts, some citrus. Flavours: Hops, nuts, charcoal, slightly fruity almost apricot like. Mouthfeel: Thin with a mild amount of carbonation. Overall: This is among the best IPAs I’ve had and something best appreciated by those who love hops. Just a ton of hop aroma and flavour but with other layers as well such as the fruit notes of apricot.

Elle est cuivrée et légèrement voilée, surmontée d’une mousse ambitieuse qui n’atteint pas ses objectifs. Très fortement maltée, des effluves de sucre d’orge en émanent et du houblon bien vert, pour ne pas dire herbeux. En bouche, le houblon se situe du côté des conifères dans sa plus simple expression. C’est sucré, c’est herbacé, c’est velouté et plutôt plaisant. Je n’en ferait pas une régulière par contre. (1165-020814)

KansaiBeerLvrs (2055) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2014
On tap at the brewery - hoppy tasting flight. A clear amber gold, a nice balanced malty + hop aroma. Smooth and fairly soft mouthfeel. The taste is pine bark but pretty soft & inviting. Very earthy. A balanced bitter IPA.

12oz bottle that my brother found somewhere in town. Pours a orange-amber with a thin white head. Nose of caramel malts, a bit of grapefruit and something that reminded me of peppers? Caramel carries through taste-wise, smooth and flavorful. Pretty solid.

Arôme invitante citronnée et résineuse, d’apparence claire couleur ambrée et coiffée d’une belle mousse qui se dissipe dès les premières minutes mais laisse une jolie col. Saveurs complexe des houblons, à l’attaque c’est la résine de conifères, suivi du citron et en finale une bonne fraîcheur, presque menthe. Il y a un bel équilibre entre les malts et le houblon, la texture est soyeuse dû aux huiles essentielles dégagés par les houblons. Je suis charmée, pas comblée. Je n’hésiterai pas à revisiter un moment donné dans quelques mois peut-être.
