341mL bottle from the LCBO. Golden brown pour with a creamy white head that bubbles away quickly. Hops, hops, hops, very fragrant with mild citrus in the aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium carbonation, and bitter hops on the finish - but not overpowering, very balanced. Delicious.

On tap @ Corner Grill for Ontario Craft Beer Week. Pours a clear amber with a moderate, creamy, off-white head. Aromas are fairly subtle, maybe a little grainy malt and a little floral hops. Taste is very much malt up front with dry, bitter, and biscuity hops asserting themselves on the finish. Creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation and a medium astringent finish. A decent but I exciting brew.

This beer poured a clear straw colour, with a minimal head. The aroma was of light malts, citrus, nuts and grains. the tasting notes include more light malts, orange peel, mango, and a slightly hoppy finish. Good overall, but I am not a fan of the style.

Finally drank this one. Clear golden amber with a frothy white cap. Fruity citrus hop aroma. Taste is sweet with medium caramel malt, like bitterness and finishes with a nice grapefruit hop. Good stuff.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 Great aroma. I love Pale Ales with hop. Everything I’ve had from this brewery has been great to amazing.

Bottle (355 ml). Thanks to czar! Clear amber with a small creamy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of malt and grapefruit with some earthy notes. Taste is moderately malty with grapefruit and caramel notes. Earthy and dusty too. Low but sticky bitter finish. Medium body. Decent.

Surprised I’ve never rated this. Was one of the first local IPAs I tried a couple of years ago. A nice gateway beer for people looking to breakaway from the norm. On tap. Dark copper with an active fizzy cream head. Creamy mouthfeel. Biscuity maltiness with a sweet floral aroma. Hint of grapefruit. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout with a medium bitter finish. It’s a sessionable hoppy amber.

355ml bottle. Deep red amber colour. Another in a mini series i've been on with red/amber ales hopped like an IPA. Nice balance between the aggressive hop and caramel malt. Overall, a good balance.
