Sask89 (514) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a deep amber colour, clear, with a frothy off white head. Aroma is of pine and grapefruit with a slight caramel malt undertone. Taste is a little sweet up front but is quickly overtaken but an intensifying bitterness. Smooth mouth feel, lively carbonation, and medium body. A nice IPA overall.

JunctionCat (24) - toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2016
A solid pale ale or hoppy ale - not really an IPA, more malty and amber but reliable all over town. Less aroma than I expected and more malty - but it all works out in a nice beer.

On tap at Betty’s in Toronto. Big hops and malt come together to deliver a tasty beer punch. the high alcohol is essential to the balance of this beer, but can sneak up on you as it is so well integrated into the overall flavour.

Une bonne IPA ronde et agréable en bouche. Une bonne amertume en fin de bouche. Je ne crois pas que l’on peut se tromper sur le style de cette bière. Très puissante et très honnête.

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Can from LCBO. Rich orange pour with a lacy white head. Nice hop aroma - pine and grass. Some caramel malt as well. Taste is too malty for my liking, and the finish is very unbalanced.

I’ve had this many different ways: cans, bottles, and pints all over. This is probably the best over-the-top IPA. Muskoka’s Mad Tom is a step down in regards to the over the top kind of taste.

jamestulloch (3428) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Keg at the brewery. Hazy amber body with a thin off-white head. Low carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, digestive biscuit and blood orange. Flavour of toffee apple, floral hops and biscuit. Medium body with an oily texture. Lively fizz. A bit too malt heavy for my liking - for me, it smothers the hoppy notes.

RickTheRick (929) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2016
Une mousse onctueuse s'entête à rester bien en place et laisse une jolie dentelle sur les parois du verre lorsqu'elle finit par lâcher le morceau. Cuivrée et voilée, la bière relâche des parfums d'agrumes et des effluves de malts caramélisés. C'est tout en équilibre en bouche, les houblons prenant position plus fermement qu'au nez. La finale amère persiste longuement en bouche. Une belle porte d'entrée pour tous ceux et celles voulant s'initier au style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
