RhetoricalAns (368) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Draft. Clear light amber pour, thin film of white head, probably not the best pour. Strong hoppy aroma, grapefruit, citrus, hint of bubblegum. Taste is caramel malts at first, citrus and tropical hop finish. Excellent.

OOKPIKABLE (118) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours ruby with thick white head. Strong hoppy aroma of bubblegum and piney grapefruit: one of the best-smelling beers I’ve had. Tastes of much the same: maybe not quite at the level the aroma would suggest, but still pretty Damn good. Oily mouthfeel and lingering finish. A keeper.

Clearish golden orange. Aroma is citrusy hops, some grassy, light yeast. Taste is mild bitterness with sticky citrus hops and some dry biscuits. Nice!

worldbeertaste (1690) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2014
Medium Orange with a white, lasting, lacy, tan head. Smells off sweet fruity tropical hops with fresh zesty citrus hops. Sweet caramel taste at fist with a citrus overtone and finishes with lots of fruity hops and a dry citrus ending. A cracking IPA that hits the spot. A fantastic beer. Medium to full crispy dry body.

Milton LCBO Outlet #1 (Milton, Ontario, Canada)

The beer pours a slightly hazed golden orange with a quarter inch bubbly off-white head. The aroma is caramel, citrus, and notes of yeast and spices. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is mild grapefruit, notes of caramel, and grass. Quite good.

WOW. This is what I’m talking about. Extra hop flavours, Extra drinkability. On desert island beer short list for sure. That aroma. The balance. Where is the bitterness, in a good way.

gregorymconway (137) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 From bottle to glass at The Sapphire Room. Little to no head on a beautiful orange/straw body, very minimal lacing on the glass. Noble hop aroma, pine, and orange zest on the nose. Slightly astringent on the palate with a heavier mouthfeel.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle, provided by TylerDurden. Hazy bright yellow body, lively lasting white head. Terrific hop aromatics, lots of pine and citrus, with austere crackery pale malts, very low sweetness and long bitterness. Fantastic stuff!
