UPDATED: AUG 28, 2015 650 ml bottle. Bottled on 01/07/15. Thanks so much Ms K!
Cloudy golden colour with a small greyish white head.
Fruity hops, mild bitterness, red orange, caramel sweetness and sweetish malt in the aroma. The flavour is piney and mild resiny hops, moderate bitterness, dryness and sweetish malt. Not bad at all. Balanced.

Clear golden color with a small white head.
The aroma is... amazing... fruity, grapefruity, blood grapefruity hops, intensive hops, moderate bitterness and some sweetness. Super balanced.
The flavor is tropical fruity hops, moderate bitterness and sweet malt.

Unreal. Full body with great citrus aroma. Nice bitterness but not too overwhelming. Could live on this beer

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 650 ml bottle during a camping trip. Pours a hazy yellow with a thick white head. Nose is tropical fruits. Mango, passion fruit and grapefruit. Taste is lots of tropical fruits with a long lasting medium bitterness and a balancing malty backbone. A bit soapy. Perfectly balanced with some malty sweetness. One of the best Canadian IPAs.

Great tasting beer... This surely is the best IPA in the world. One of my favourite. Very hoppy - the bitter is just right. Great aroma!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle from mcberko pours a hazy orange with some creamy, lacing white head. Nose has heavy pine, soap and orange, fair amount of malt sweetness too, honey comb, grapefruit too. Very classic nose. Flavor is quite well balanced for the claim of 80IBUs, honey sweetness, some malt, a bit of candy, orange, grapefruit, pine, a little herbal, some soap too. Malty, bitter, sticky finish.

Oh boy, this fatty really capped of my night after sipping on weak and watery Italian beers. Poured an unfiltered amber with small head. Aroma was of pine, mango, floral hops, and caramel. Tasted of grapefruit, pine, toffee, and sweet malts. So well balanced with hops in the middle and malts near the end. Medium body with the bitterness in the middle. I would let this tug drag me anywhere, whatever that means.

Hard not to give full marks to IPA bastard. After a night of drinking Euro-froofiness this North American flavour bomb tugged everything out to sea. Hazy yellow copper with an off white head, a floral and pine hop-barrage rode a wave of caramel and honey sweetness. Hoppy is the name of Fat Tugs game, getting its job accomplished with bitter alacrity. A pine pounding balanced brilliantly by sweet malt gives you a brew with a smooth, mid-low carbonation, light oiliness and a dry and bitter grapefruit finish.
