piscator34 (2362) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 7, 2009
On draft at Beer Bistro. Light amber in colour with moderate carbonation. Simple but effective aromas of sweet orange, a bit of pine, and a somewhat grassy hop element. More specifically orangey hop character, along with notes of pale malts, toasted nuts, and a bit of munich malt. Solid bitterness. An above average IPA as far as Canadian microbrewery versions go, but probably would be better classified as an APA.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2009
On tap @ Beer Bistro in Toronto. Pours clear copper with white head. Nice citrus and pine nose. Great taste though, nice bitter finish. I love the tap handle.

AGAquino (667) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2009
On tap at C’est What? in Toronto. Clear copper colour with small white foamy head. Slight sweet malty and hoppy aroma. Nice balanced malty sweet hoppy bitter flavour. Lingering bitter aftertaste.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2008
In short: A glass of citrusy hop juice. Simple but highly drinkable and highly refreshing
How: Tap at BeerBistro, Toronto
The look: Clear copper body topped by a very small off-white head.
In long: Hoppy nose as expected on the citrusy side of American hops. Taste is citrusy hops wall to wall with some pine-cone juice here and there. Inexpressive malts that provide an adequate body without contributing much to the flavour spectrum. Very juicy and refreshing beer. Smooth carbonation. Sharp bitterness of medium intensity. Couldn’t resist ordering it when I was that pump handle and was rather disappointed to get it in a pint that had to be orally ingested. Teaser.

matt7215 (2278) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
on cask at volo cask days 2008. orange with big soapy bubble. juicy hop nose with lots of citrus. the caramel malt plays nicely off the hops and the finish is bitter. the fruity floral notes and juicy hop goodness come together really well but the palate is a touch thin. a well made session IPA.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
Golden-amber. The aroma is a panoply of hoppage - earthy, citrusy (yuzu, grapefruit), woody, perfumey with light caramel malt. Woody palate is moderately bitter with slight caramel, toffee, and hints of brown sugar.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Draught @ Victory. Amber, not much head. Nutty malt, some perfume. Light quaffable mouthfeel. Dry. GREAT hops. Fruity, lingering aftertaste. Good IPA.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2008
On tap at the Magpie. Copper in colour, with just a thick film of head. Lots of C hops in the nose, with some earthiness underneath. In fact, early, mid and late hop additions all make their significant presences felt in this beer. There is a lovely caramel malt backbone. Finish and body are just so-so.

KyotoLefty (9404) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2008
Great first impression--good appearance and nose. Amazing hop aroma, but the flavor and mouth don’t live up. Thin and watery, tinny and unbalanced. Not enough malt to match the killer hops.

500ml draught
5.0% ABV
I tried this beer at the "Beer Bistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer was a translucent reddish-gold with a thin white head. The aroma was primarily floral hops with smidgen of malt. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, medium carbonated, and bitter on the tongue. The flavour was grapefruity hops, some peppery hints, and a little malt.
