DerWeg (1562) - Toronto, Ontario, - JAN 27, 2013
Foggy ’old gold’ look, creamy white head typical of BW. Wafting of citrus and weed from the hops which play strongly into taste. Bitter grassy palate, solid malt yet not sticky, led out by looong fresh hop finish.

Bitter, hoppy flavour with fruity and needlelike notes. Touches of malt and yeast. Rich body. Medium to high carbonation. Lingering, bitter afteraste. Good. Very good.

Quevillon (2661) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2015
500 ml bottle from the brewery on June 29, 2015. Honey gold, small head. The aroma is a well balanced mix bag of citrus, herbs, pine and pineapple. Good hoppy pine and pineapple taste, very dry, solid bitterness. This is far from your average Ontario IPA!

Niall73 (2245) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle from brewery. Big piney, slightly soapy, trop fruit aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Carmel, pine, lemon, orange, light funky veg, toast, some orange marmalade... A bit too sweet for me but tasty nonetheless.

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Draught (6.8%) @ Lambic Foeder. Rated on 25.06.2015
Aroma has resin and pineapples. Very brewdog-like. Flavour has pineapple juice, biscuits, somewhat aggressive fruits and minerals. Also some gooseberry bush. Quite Punk Ipa -like, a bit better though.

Golden beer with nice white head, fairly clear. Piney tropical aromas. Nice texture in the mouth, oily, good flavour of bitter orange peel, well balanced with a long bitter finish.

GlennHendry (121) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2015
If this is a candle then it’s one lit from a burning pine bough because there’s a ton of pine on the nose and the tongue. Some orange and tropical fruit and more resiny hops, along with a solid caramel malt backbone, make this a really well-balanced beer. Nice.
