sudomorph (609) - Barrie, Ontario, - NOV 8, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 500ml bottle bottled on Nov 5, 2013. Drank Nov 7, 2013. Pours a clear, slightly dark yellow/orange with a two finger, nearly white head that coats the glass with lacing. Aroma is pungent with some floral/earthy/grass notes mixed with pine, lemon citrus, and a touch of tropical fruits.Taste is bitter. Notes of pine with an earthy, herbal, slightly peppery spiced taste at the end. Medium body and carbonation. Smooth, drinkable, texture that is fairly refreshing.Overall I like it. More herbal than most of their other beers but good in its own right. A fine addition to the line up. I hope they donít just make this when they run out of Citra. Cheers!

Helsdon (159) - Toronto, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
nice golden with a little haze, finger of white head. Really rice nose of citrus and some floral hops, but Iím getting a hint of Summit in there which is seriously not a favourite of mine. The taste well balanced cereal malts, little sweetness, good mouthful of hops that mirrors some of the noses, but there is that Summit. Itís a good beer, and you can tell it. but that Summit pulls it down for me. Ah well.

DerWeg (1495) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Light gold with thin foam and some lacing. Typical jumbled hop impressions, all yelling out bitter would like more shape and color. Also think thereís too much sticky pale malt for me. This and Roman Candle are not ones for me.

500ml bottle shared by Joel. A good but not terrible memorable blonde ipa. Quite hoppy and. Implement. Drinkable for the weight. Nice stuff.

500 ml bottle from the brewery. Pours a classic hazy IPA yellow with white soapy head that sticks around. Smell is mouth watering hops and more hops hitting notes of pine resin, melon like fruitiness. Really great smelling stuff. Feels a bit oily with not much carbonation. Taste is really well balanced, juicy, piney and bitter. Sweet malt comes through, but its not the star here, just as I like it.

Bottle from Hammy78, huge thanks from both me and the real cat lady! Pours a light golden with a really thin layer of foam for a head that leaves OK lacing. Nose is pretty obviously of onions and oranges, quite unusual but not really offputting. I thought Iíd get more of the classic "cat piss" aroma but no, onions and sweet oranges it is. Taste is sweet and hoppy, mediumly bitter. Flavors are once again of sweet oranges and grapefruits. Not bad at all. Mouthfeel is oily and lightly sticky. Carbonation somewhat light. Not bad at all, I need to sample their other hoppy offerings now!

Thanks to Nick for this. Pours a hazy gold with a small white top. Aroma is intense citrus and grapefruit hop aromas that make you want to live in the glass. Taste although dials back the hop flavouring to loads of citrus and grapefruit but the bitterness doesnít back up the aromas. Iím thinking the hops are going to turn my mouth inside out and Iím left looking for a little more.

shaynsawchuk (483) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
500 mL bottle. Pours golden yellow with a lacy white head. Orange/tangerine citrus, and an amalgam of resinous dank herbal aromas--from pine and lanolin to cat piss and ganja. Dry stuff, only the suggestion of sweetness, offset by a fierce hop bitterness. Sticky and lingering palate. Moderate plus body with above average carbonation. Let it warm. Ameowsing.
