3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very good example of a pale ale doing it right. Poured a dark amber with a massive off white head. Aroma was of light pine, floral hops, and hints of mustiness. Tasted of caramel, toffee, pine, and light resin. Had low bitterness with a smooth medium body. I found this to be more malty than hoppy, but that is just want I needed.

Pours a clear copper with white head and a nice lacing. Aroma of grapefruits, little piney smell. Taste is simmilar with a nice caramel backbone wich is not overpowering. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall a good pale.

Chocolate / hop nose. Clear, dark amber body with thin, carbonated head, no appreciable retention. Flavour is sharp and hoppy from start to finish with bitter dark chocolate aftertaste. I found the mouthfeel rather watery. In all, it’s a very good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A rich carmel color similar to pale ales but a bit more cloudy. The notes of the hops jump forth from the glass and immediately hit the whole tongue. The bitter units are rich but well blended into the overall flavor of the beer. If you like an IPA with a bit more, then try this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice caramel colour, almost amber. First whiff is huge hop resin, which is strange because it’s not a hoppy beer at all. After it breathes a bit the malt character starts to come through: sweet caramel, a bit of hay/grass. Taste is both sweet and bitter without actually being either. Finish is dry and floral with a hint of pine. If nothing else this beer is very well-named.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Acheté à la LCBO en septembre 2014. Goût vraiment trop malté et un côté suret désagréable envahit le palais. Manque flagrant de houblon. Malheureusement un manque de fraicheur évident. À réessayer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355 mL Bottle. Deep amber body with an off-white foamy-bubbly head that settles to a long lasting film that laces the glass. Pine-like and floral aroma with notes of autumn leaves, grapefruit, sweet malt, crystal malt, and toffee. Sweet malt and crystal malt are there in the flavor and if an autumn breeze had any taste, this beer has it along with an innuendo of black pepper. Hops express in the aftertaste without being too overpowering. Grapefruit lingers a bit in the finish. This could be Canada’s very own "Oktoberfest" beer. Perfect for an Indian Summer barbecue.
