355ml can from LCBO. Served in a tulip. Pours a transparent orange-brown, fine beige head. Minimal carbonation. Aroma is super hoppy, wow. Hop hop hop hop hop. More subtle notes of orange, pine, vinegar, and candy. Palate: Medium bodied, fizzy, very dry, biting finish, but still somewhat refreshing. Taste: Bitter! Definitely an amazing IPA. Lots of complex flavour. Better hope you like hops!

fiery_1 (197) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2016
12/25 from Double Blind IPA tasting. Growler, copper in colour. Light nose with tea and herbal aspects. Way too bitter for my liking. Placed 15th

JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Deep golden color with a tall beige head. Citric and piney hops dominate the aroma, but some lightly toasted malt is found in the background. Pine sweetness in the front. Some orange citrus in the middle. Soft, oily, slightly sticky feel. Good balance throughout. Nicely done. 3/11

zimbo (901) - SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Huge glossy billowing long lasting thick head on top of a slightly hazy deep golden body. Good slicy piny hop nose. Great firm backbone. Chewy oily spicy hop pineyness on the palate which develops and envelops through to the end and aftertaste. World class.

googleimage83 (52) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
Apple, pine, caramel in aroma - some tropical fruit sweetness (mango?) in the mix as well. Translucent cidery brown-orange body with pillowy head. Floral bitter character is very strong and kicks in very early, threatening to overpower some of the fruitier traits, but dissipates to a tolerable level midway in. Picking up a caramel apple sweetness to counteract the bitter bomb. A light mineral bitterness lingers in the finish. Nice grainy malt in there as well. Not the easiest drink, but a very nice IPA.

Can from beer of the month club. Goes under red Betty name. Nose and body are all hops. Pine feel is weird and a bit off. Not a great or good or average ipa. Kinda disappointed.

Pours clear dark orange with a frothy white head. Aroma is tropical fruits and orange peel. Very good bitter taste with a  fruit background. My first beer from these guys, I’m looking forward to trying more.

Too bitter for my taste at first but able to get past the hops after 3-4 sips. Nice nose (floral) & finish (grapefruit). (tasted 04/27/16)

Tricker (389) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
Bière orangée de 6.5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat sucré, remplie d’agrumes, ce qui amène une petite amertume. Elle possède un goût vraiment amer, à la limite rafraîchissant. Cette amertume relève d’un goût de pamplemousse. Il y a un goût fade en finale, restant en bouche. On aurait tendance à croire qu’il provient d’une épice. À la longue, le goût devient même désagréable. Est-ce le fait qu’elle est une bière forte ? Je ne crois pas, mais il y a quelque chose qui ne me revient pas.

VincentDamon (474) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2016
IPA de couleur ambrée avec une mousse titanesque. Nez un peu minéral où les houblons ont peine à dévoiler leurs notes qui me semblent ici plutôt herbeuses. En bouche, un bel équilibre de malt et de houblons, on a affaire à une bière bien gouteuse dont les notes de caramel, de sel et d’Agrumes sont en parfaite harmonie. Pas mauvaise! Cheeeeers!

On tap at original joes. Nice strong citrus aromas with this one, taste is grassy hops and pine, really coats your mouth and has a nice lingering bitterness. Excellent IPA
