garthicus (2912) - Dublin, - JAN 31, 2013
At Volo IPA challenge. Appearance: Dark orange, quite hazy with a small dirty white head. Aroma: Hoppy, apples and citrus, smells pretty decent. Flavour: Medium bitterness, grainy, a little herbal with decent hoppy finish. Would drink quite a few in a session with no fatigue!

Cask at Volo IPA Challenge. Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a spare bubbly off-white head. Slightly mild aroma of fruity and resiny hops, a bit herbal and more fruit. Nice hoppy and fruity flavour with a really big bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Great stuff.

[4399-20120422] Cask. Fruit dried apple cranberry aroma. Hazy, orange amber body with a quick bubbly head. Fruity bitter grainy hops flavour has a sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Drinkable, mild bitter. (7/3/7/4/14) 3.5

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2012
A hazed orange amber IPA with a thin fluffy off white head. In aroma, a strange sweet doughy malt, a tad cloying, strange fruit esters. In mouth, a rather grassy malt with grainy notes, rye, grassy hops, medium bodied. Cask at Ontario Cask IPA Challenge, April 21, 2012.

2012-04-21. Lovely sweet citrus aroma over a light green hop vegetation. Hazy dark orange body with a small off-white head. Flavour has a modest bitterness, disappointing mild citrus compared to the aroma, green leafy vegetation, light astringency in the finish. 6+ Average palate with light carbonation. Smelled great so the flavour was a bit of a disappointment. Would like to try this one again on tap and a little clearer as it shows potential, and perhaps the flavour would catch up to the flavour. Blind Tasting on Cask at Volo IPA Challenge

Sammy (11247) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2012
Bar Volo IPA Challenge finalist.Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Apollo hops, also used for aromatic hops, and dry hopped the same. A little dry, hop pellet bitter. Good drinkability. Mild hop aroma. Middling mouthfeel, very satisfying IPA.
