Cask from barVolo. Lovely beer. Cask effect gives a really smooth beer, with great bitter presence. Middle is caramel with peachy/apricot finish. Pours a brown/orange with great foamy lacing that hangs like spider-man.

PatIrish (168) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2012
From the tap @WVRST. Pours a lovely amber with creamy head that fades to some persistent lacings. Aromas, pineapple, mango, tangerine, grass. A robust piney taste on the palate, hoppy, mildly malty, astringent with a soft warm solvent finish. Wonderful stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RBAG 2012 Nice orange amber colour with a small compact light tan head and some ropy lacing. Darker caramel aroma with a darker fruit side to it, rrgf, peach, bit ’o pine, good citrus with a light candy side. Pretty good taste and really bitter. Pine, sharp bitter citrus beating, grapefruit of both kinds, peach, caramel. Long bitter finish.. a hard bitter. lingering caramel and notable pine reminders. Tasty and simple.

solidfunk (3854) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Great bitter hops but not quite as bitter as a regular IPA. Creamier, thicker and a fuller taste behind just the bitter hops. Excellent.

rob6239 (621) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle from Black Oak brewery. One of my favourite beers available. Pours delicious amber with slight white head. Strong hoppy citrus aroma. Sweet beginning and light bitterness to the finish in perfect balance. I wish I could buy this all year long.

Bendrixian (1094) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2012 On tap at c’est what, Toronto. I was surprised at how clear this beer is, despite having a nice orange look. Big pine cone aroma and fresh floral hops.there is a slight nutty note as well. A very hoppy brew, leafy & green bitter notes, no malts, again i feel that the flavour has been striped due to filtration but otherwise a tasty brew.

550ml draught
8.0% ABV <bv> I tried this beer on tap on August 12, 2011 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent red colour with a thin white head and some effervescence. The aroma is strong citrus and tropical fruit, with some hints of malt. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is grapefruit hoppy with caramel and bread mixed in. A very good beer, although the bitter finish was on the ’dry’ side.

rosenbergh (6662) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2011
Draught at BarVolo, Toronto, ON.
Clear dark amber colour with small creamy off-white head. Dark bitter grapefruity resiny hoppy aroma. Dark sweet bitter flavour with strong resiny notes. I think it’s too dark hoppy bitter. Slightly over-hopped to be excellent.
