On draught at the Brewpub, lovely golden hue with nice head retention. Aroma carries typical west coast hope profiles, resiny, slightly tropical, some tangerine. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice slightly astringent finish. Top 3 Ontario IPA. Cudos.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
650ml bottle from the brewery in Toronto, Ontario. Golden orange in colour with a thin white head, good lacing. The aroma is of tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine and caramel. The flavour has that amazing citra hop tropical fruitness to it, good malt balance, pineapples and oranges. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy. I love citra hopped beers. An excellent IPA, great balance.

kramer (5735) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body with a one inch frothy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is an equal mix of citrusy hops and caramel maltiness. A slight hint of yeastiness to the aroma as well. The flavor is a little more malt focused than I would like, there’s a fair amount of bitterness in here, but not quite enough. Lingering husky and grainy maltiness after the hops fade. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation.
