RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
Impressive yet ísimpleí beer. Bitter and aggressive throughout with a remarkable hop taste towards the end, yet drinkable and refreshing. Had at Smokeless Joeís Patio. Very fulfilling, will have again!

Pours a copper reddish color with a small white head. Floral hops nose with some grapefruit. Stong hoppy finish. A little watery mouthfeel . Excellent for people who wants to try IPA.

Jow (2155) - New York, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Saturday sampling at beerbistro in Toronto. Pours a nice amber with grapefruit honey and a nice medium body and hoppy finish. The name is a bit misleading compared to some of the american IPAís i normally drink.

jredmond (5332) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Sampled on BQ2010. Poured a dark amber body. Aroma is aggressive with alcohol and hops. Flavor is a bit strange with a solid hop to the face.

Spab (2389) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2010
On tap at the Ceili Cottage. Pours a clear golden orange with a good-sized slightly off-white head. Aroma is has distinct, somewhat earthy citrus hops. Flavour has some caramel malt and earthiness but big citrus hops really dominate. Medium body and a fairly long bitter finish. A real credit to the Ontario brewing scene.

neuromatt (1154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2010
On tap at Volo in Toronto, served in an English pint. Appearance is clear copper with 5 mm of tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma begins with strong grapefruit and gradually acquires other components: caramel malts, floral and herbal notes, and some spice. Flavour begins with sweet caramel malts but gradually becomes more dry towards the finish. Finish is long, dry and hoppy. Medium body with a dry texture and average carbonation. When fresh, this brew never disappoints. Aroma is awesome, the definite highlight. Hops are prominent throughout, but they build towards the finish. Not as strong as many IPAs, but it it works very well. 2010-03-03

humulonimbus (10) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2010
I think this is the best IPA on offer in Canada right now. I donít get tired of this beer which speaks to how well crafted (it think) it is. Notes: -Assertive yet refreshing aroma of piney spice and citrus (smells like a bag of hops) -vibrant palate with a (metric) tonne of flavour without being sticky -good balance of creamy and crisp in the palate, and sweet and savoury in the taste -generous body with just enough malt to keep the party from getting out of hand -finish is one that is pleasantly bitter and long and tickles my throat (and me) pink It should also be noted that: 1) This beer comes with the best tap handle EVER! 2) Itís a cruel joke, yet fitting, that the beer is called hop addict. It seems that every time I make it to Toronto (the only place itís available, %@$&#!!!) to get my fix some other junkie has bled the keg dry, aaarrrrgh!!! Well, I just canít get enough ....or any at all!

Tasted this beer while on Beer Quest 2010 with the guys. This was beer number 78. Pour was dark amber. Aroma is aggressive with alcohol and hops. Flavor is a bit strange and a little too harsh.
