3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy red-orange colour, frothy light beige head that retains well and laces the glass completely. Very handsome brew. Aroma is quite hoppy; citrus rind and light pine, but with a light dusty element that seems odd. Flavour is sweet biscuity malt with citric hop character. Soft mouthfeel, moderate bitterness. Good, but the Iíve had better Ontario IPAs in the past two weeks from Spearhead, Amsterdam (Boneshaker), and Muskoka (Mad Tom).

Mid-copper color with a nice offwhite light tan head. Fantastic c-hop aroma, grapefruit, a bit of pineapple grass and pine as well. Smells AMAZING. Taste is a nice hoppy punch in the mouth, but I love it. Very aggressive citrus hops on first taste but a great blend into dark and caramel flavours on the back end. Leaves the palate with a nice hop tang but not so unbalanced as to be unpleasant.
This is a hop lovers beer, its not for the Corona fans, but hell, who cares about them!

Will this live up to the ridiculous write up for this beer? Whoa. This moosehead commercial is pathetic. Amber with a light tan head that sticks everywhere. Strong orangey citrus aroma, mild pine, sweet caramel, a tiny amount of spice, nectarine and lemon. The taste is pretty good. Straight up bitterness is good, sharp citrus and zingy pine bitterness is pretty awesome.. Funny how I went from thinking this was ass to really liking it. The pungent side does well, the bitter violence is relentless, lol - the coyote just took a raping from the road runner. I donít think I actually said much about the flavor but I dig it anyway. Drank it ultra quick and I have more if I feel like getting more descriptive. These Ariba Zezty Taco chips are the only thing of importance right now.

Great aroma with an amazing hoppy taste that sets it apart from other so called hoppy beers, as the warning on the bottle says, this flavorful IPA ruins you for lamer beers! Great beer

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very hoppy noze with grass and flower accents. Ether aroma is also sticking out which adds up to previous accents. Color is clear gold with a very creamy, long lasting and sticking head. Taste is an explosion of hops with a variety of grass and flower flavors. Sweet tangerine accents are sticking out too. Good proportion of malt is giving a very round texture. The interest of this beer lies in its super hopping giving it wonderful grass and flower flavors. Pour les vrais amateurs de houblon!

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2012 Bottle. Aroma carries lots of citrus (orange/grapefruit/pineapple) with green hops that practically sprout from the pint after your pour. Dark amber in colour, light fluffy head that fades fast. Lots of bitterness carried with that fruity, resiny hop flavour; balanced nicely over a solid caramel malt backbone. A little more carbonation than I would have liked. Compares favourably with many of the IPAs brewed in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia.

Bottle 330ml - A beautiful orange amber IPA with a thin creamy white head. In aroma, a floral pinhey and meaty hops with pink grapefruits pulp. In mouth, a good biscuitty malt with a good serving of resinous hops, a bit harsh, grapefruit chunks. Medium bodied. Nice and refreshing on this very warm summer day, well done, I was happily surprised.

Amber with a thin head. Quite cloudy. Sweet, with a light fruitiness. It seems too fruity, and not hoppy enough for my IPA tastes.
