Lubiere (12265) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
A golden amber DIPA with a thick lacing mocha head. In aroma, smooth caramel malt with faint fruity floral hops, a bit doughy. In mouth, a smooth biscuit malt with light sweet orange juice and floral hops, sweet honey grapefruit, nice.

mcberko (11870) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
330mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a hazy copper / golden with a small white head. Nose is super dank, with loads of herbal, pot-like hops, followed by some pine and resin. Flavour matches this pretty well, with loads of dank earthy, herbal hops, followed by secondary hop notes of pine and resin, and a sufficient dry woody bready malt backing. A strange one, with loads of pot and pine. There is also an unpleasant vegetal quality to this all. Iím surprised at the high ratings for this. Itís drinkable, but this isnít so great.

Sammy (10555) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
Cask at Bar Volo. Floral hop aroma. Hazy coloured body. Above average mouthfeel. A good blend of malt and hops, aiding the palate. Above average DIPA.A sipper, still good drinkability for a 9% bitter beer.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Cask at The Only Cafe. Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The nose is bright and juicy. Loads of fresh pine and citrus along with some juicy/citrusy hops and a bit of tropical fruit. Rich and resiny with a lot of bright citrus and grapefruit. Resiny and juicy with some nice sticky malts. Goddamn - this is amazing.

DuffMan (8801) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle. Medium orange, off white head. Piney and quite sweet, caramel and melon, with intense bitterness. A bit heavy handed for my tastes, but solid.

blankboy (7044) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2013
Draught at Indie Alehouse. Pours a deep amber-gold with a small long-lasting creamy white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is lovely, lots of citrusy hops, quite fruity, along with caramel malt. Fruity, hoppy flavour -- simple but oh so pleasant. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. Holy cow, this is great!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells nice and fruity. A big step up from the immodest IPA I just had. Pours cloudy red with great head and lacing. Fruit is apples and citrus. Creamy texture. Finishes with light floral bitterness. On tap at volos.
