Tessic (933) - Brantford, Ontario, - JAN 1, 2014
This IPA poured a cloudy amber colour with a big, frothy, off white head. Scents include citrus hops, with a little spruce and grass and a little coriander. First swig was quite hoppy with flavours of citrus hops, pineapple, orange and apple. Additional flavours of cherry Ha;;s and cherries in general also noticeable. Finish is medium bitter with citrus hop flavours lingering.

Clear copper golden pour with white head. Very bitter but moderate to full bodied and long aftertaste. Balanced nicely and well done BIG IPA!

DuffMan (7999) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle, sent fresh from the brewery by Robbie-- thanks buddy! Hazy golden yellow with a lasting frothy white head. Earthy, pungent green hop character, maybe some gooseberries, crackery malts, long bitter finish. Another excellent hoppy brew from these guys!

Hammy78 (870) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear Amber, massive fluffy white head, shit ton of lacing left behind. Nose is a city’s fruit haymaker to the olafactory senses. Melon, peach, passion fruit, just awesome. Tastes just as good as it smells. A little bitter, and some biscuit, but the fruit punch from the hops is fantastic. I will absolutely have this again.

Clear copper pour with a nice frothy white head. Citrus grapefruit hop aroma. Very refreshing. Nice malty hop flavour. Earthy pine forest. Lovely stuff.

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
12oz draught at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden amber, virtually bubble free, with a thin white head that leaves a little lacing around the rim. Aroma is that of ripe tropical fruits, particularly papaya, almost so strong as to give a sweaty socks character - very clean hop character though. Taste is very light on the malt side of things, followed by juicy, juicy hops. Big but balanced hop flavour, with a light menthol character. Body is slightly thin for the strength, with lightly bubbly carbonation and lingering fruity bitterness. All round a decent DIPA, but no world beater at the same time.

Great beer! Great for the style. Easy drinking and went pretty well with salsa if I must say.

Aroma of orange, herbs, and mildly roasted malt. Clear amber colour. Slightly sweet front with citrus flavours and mild bitter finish. Full bodied with lively carbonation. Quite a tasty brew.
