mansquito (5341) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Victory Cafe, Toronto tap: Pours a copper colour with a white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, with a solid malt backbone. Taste is on the way light side of the IPA world. For a beer called Hop Addict, there really is not that much in the way of bitterness or hoppiness. Somewhat sweet and mellow. This is not a bad session, but it is hardly an exemplary IPA.

Draught @ Victory. Amber, not much head. Nutty malt, some perfume. Light quaffable mouthfeel. Dry. GREAT hops. Fruity, lingering aftertaste. Good IPA.

En fût au Beer Bistro. Une bière cuivrée et son mince col de mousse. Un nez de céréales toastées et de houblons aux consonnances fruitées et florales. Au goût, des notes de caramel qui valsent sur des houblons parfumés et amérisants. Une bouche légère et son effervescence bien menée. Une texture crémeuse. En finale, une amertume agréable qui s’étend avec gentillesse.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Tap at Caeli Cottage in Toronto. Pours a light amber- deep copper with a thin but lasting white head. Aroma is sharp nutty toasted malts caramel- crystal malts and light fruitiness with a ctirus and orange zest light pine hop kick. Flavor is hoppy, a bit resinous with some pine with a toffee and caramel maltinss, toast and a gritty hoppy bitterness in the end. I liked drinking the Hop Head IPA a bit more just because it was easier to drink- this was a bit too tacky in the end. Solid though.

muzzlehatch (4772) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #27. Draught pint at Volo in Toronto, July 2008. Smooth, creamy snowy head topping a dark, clear copper body, with a bit of chunky lace...nose is woody, resinous hoppiness, rather dry and brittle...a bit of woody character to the body also, alas turning to sub-wood, that is cardboard in the finish, but there’s some decent peachy, juicy sweetness and at least a bit of dry bitter hoppiness as well. It certainly starts out better than it ends, but not a total loss.

tiggmtl (4544) - 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.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2007 I’m a big fan of hops, but not insane hops, and this is right up my alley. Beautiful aroma of citrus, and hops. nice bitterness, but not too much bitterness, just enough to keep you comming back for more. I often have this at the Beer Bistro during my lunch! awesome stuff! Hey Durham, BOTTLE THIS!!!

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.
