UPDATED: MAR 18, 2013 From the bottle, pours a lovely hazy gold with a pillowy white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, lemon, honey, grapefruit. Medium mouth feel, good carbonation with a bitter slight astringent finish.

650 mL. Copper with a thick white head, lots of lacing. Caramel, yeast and citrus, beeswax and pine, fruit esters, spice and cough syrup. Pleasently clean mouth feel with high carbonation. Sweet but well balanced by both hops and yeast. Complex and tasty.

neongolden (373) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2013
(650mL bottle from brewery, bottled Feb 4 2013 and consumed 20 days later) Pours a hazy orange with a bubbly, fluffy white head and loads of lace. Smells strongly of both hops and yeast. Citrus, catty, tropical fruit, bready yeast, spices. Flavour follows on, fresh tropical fruit, citrus, some sweet lighter malts, Belgian yeast, slight spice. Fades into medium hop bitterness, bit astringent with a fruity core lingering, slight booze when warm. Mouthfeel medium-full, oily, moderate effervescent carb. The hops and yeast characters really well balanced and complementary with strong fruitiness, more "Belgian" than most Belgian IPAs. Very good stuff.

Sammy (8351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
Aroma is nice, but it is citra strong. It is tamed but as it warms, it gives off some ammonia, cat p. A small retained head. More than one hop. ABove average mouthfeel, spurred on by the Belgian yeast. Decent drinkability and taste for the style. Growler at D’s 37th BDay.

GuillaumeCL (343) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a bit of white head. Smell is sweet and floral. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is quite hop forward but not overpowering and a nice belgian smoothness. Long lasting bitter aftertaste.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep orange with a bubbly, off-white head. Aroma is of American hops, Belgian yeast - so lots of citrus and spice. Nice balance of those components. The flavour is nicely dry and crisp, and with a medium-thin body, leads very quickly into pleasant hop bitterness with a slight bit of funk.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2013
Draught at Bar Hop. Pours a deep orange-copper with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Nice aroma of catty hops, pepper, Belgian yeast, biscuity malt and some citrus. Flavour of catty, fruity hops along with Belgian yeast, fruit, light spice and a decent bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. A solid Belgian IPA, great stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2013
On draught at Bar Hop. Hazy amber gold, average off white head. Smells and tastes of Belgian yeast, catty bitterness, some alcohol - well balanced. Average body, solid carbonation, medium dry pungent bitter finish, a bit astringent. Lovely.
