decent brew. Nice hoppiness and mouthfeel. Nothing to get crazy excited about.

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2008
On tap at Volo. This one took me by surprise. Besides DFH and Stone Ruination, all the others IPAs I have had to date have been very thin and unbalanced in its bitterness. This one makes a fine IPA. Very floral aromas. The taste follows a similar bouquet with plenty of hops and bread. A fantastic beer!

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2008
On tap at C’est what? Copper liquid is topped with a frothy beige cap. The aroma is heavy citric hops(mostly grapefruit)with some pine, followed by bready, cookie dough and caramel. Taste is bright cirtus rind hops, fresh leafy greens and pine with some butterscotch and caramel sweetness. This is quite dry and chalky, and finishes bitter and and tasty. I wish it was available near me!

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
Tap at Beer Bistro and Volo. Copper coloured brew. Aroma is loaded with pine and sweet grapefruity citrus. Lean crisp malts with a bit of breadiness as well. Flavour is quite nice. Good balance of pine and malt with a firm bitterness on the back. Lingering piny resinousness. Excellent IPA.

Blasphemies (45) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2008
Draught at Bow&Arrow. Clear dark copper colour. Very hoppy taste, bitter with a dry finish. Do not put ketchup on your fires and go back and have a sip of this, you will feel the hops take over your face.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2008
Pint at Volo A coppery brown beer a lacy head. It smells very much of floral and citrus hop notes. The taste is very hoppy, crisp and clean with a very nice dry finish. If you love hops, as I do, this beer is stellar! It somewhat reminds me of Anchor Brewings Liberty Ale

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2008
On tap at The Black Tomato in Ottawa. The color is amber with a beige head and some lace. The aoroma and taste is of hops of course, but also a taste of sweet caramel and spicies and fruits. You can feel just a wee bit of bitterness. Looking forward to having more of this one.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2008
Sweaty, catty, citrus grapefruit and orange suggestions to the nose. Clear copper coloured body is topped by a low tan head that recedes slowly to partial cover with excellent lacing. Caramel malts are quite pronounced but blend well with moderate bitterness. Plenty of lingering citrus and grassy hop character in the aftertaste. Very dry in texture with moderate carbonation. Sampled on tap at Caffe Volo during Grey Cup weekend 2007.

garthicus (2662) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 21, 2007
Tap -Volo, a huge whack of hops hits you with this aroma, it has a citrus/candy flavour with hops raging through it, very very enjoyable and I look forward to drinking many more!
