Glouglouburp (5938) - 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 (2151) - 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 (12167) - 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 (5201) - 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 (1777) - Peterborough, 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 (6145) - 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.

blipp (5830) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Draft at Smokeless Joes in Toronto. Poured orange with an off white head. Sweet and hopppy aroma with orange and caramel. Flavor is like hop juice, citric and floral. Just enough malt is there to balance. Nice, very drinkable and thirst quenching.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2008
Objectively speaking: A dry-hopped, rather potent hop lotion where hop leaves where still visible from the cask serving.
I like: Extremely easy to drink. Pleasant citrusy notions. Highly pleasant bready malts make an excellent basis for the hops to shine on. Cracker-like chewiness- rather bright and certainly very clean also. Surprisingly high level of bitterness grow form sip to sip.
I dislike: Rather unappealing appearance, totally headless and full of hop residues. No oiliness despite having fresh hops in the glass, it lacks any trace of fresh perfumey, floral hop aromas. Alcohol feels much higher (6.5-7%) than it really is.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 24, 2008
On tap at C’est What? OUTSTANDING! Lots of pine and citrus grapefruit aromas. The intense hop flavor is great. This seems like a much stronger beer than the 5.45 ABV belies. Long lingering tongue drying palate.
