4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I have been waiting to try this ever since it was "banned" initially by the LCBO because supposedly it was too violent in the title???? Anyway found it today and did a sample pack of several flying monkey. This poured from bottle into pint glass. Amber dark medium redish white head. Aroma, boom, I get tons of things, spruce, grapefruit, pineapple so much. Taste is bitter off course, but not off the chart, this blends nice, you get like it says the grapefruit effect with the sugar, I completely remember having that as a kid and now in a beer! You get a creamy texutre and bitter finish, but just right. This is a superb beer, me is a liking!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
ENG: 355ml bottle from Liquor Mart Winnipeg. Poured into the tulip, clean amber color, medium to high tan head, good lacing. Very strong fruity, floral, citrusy and piney aromas. Taste is quite piney, lime and grapefruit, with nice, strong and sticky but pleasure bitterness that stays for longer allover the mouth. Grapefruit and pine hoppy bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation, medium body. Citra hops do the job!
PL: Butelka 355ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg. Przelana do kieliszka, klarowne bursztynowe w barwie, średnio-wysoka jasna piana, niezły lejsing. Bardzo mocne aromaty owocowe, kwiatowe, cytrusowe oraz sosnowe. W smaku mocno sosnowe, limonkowe, grejfrutowe, z solidną i lepką goryczką, która przyjemnie oblepia podniebienie na dość długo. W posmaku grejfrutowo-sosnowa, chmielowa goryczka. Średnie nasycenie, średnie ciało. Citra daje radę!

Bottle, bottled 10/14, 30/01/15. Pours orange with a nice, smooth, beige head. Aroma is fairly hoppy with citrus and light pine. Taste is semi-dry, citrus and pine, medium caramel. Light with medium carbonation. An alright IPA with good drinkability. Very enjoyable.

Promising citra nose that pays off in the flavor. Does not blow your head off, but rather delivers a very nice, balanced look at what American IPA could -and should - be. And from a Canadian brewer at that.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dissipating white foamy head atop an orange body. While most IPAs have a citrus nose this is more a fruit bowl. Flavour is nicely tart with a mellow orange rind and soapy flowers. Lingering bitter hop finish. Very tasty. 355ml bottle purchased for $2.80 from Spinnakers Spirit Merchants in James Bay.

Excellente IPA. En vente régulière et en 6 pack un peu partout en Ontario. Superbe amertume, goût fruits tropicaux dû au houblon utilisé ( Citra ). J’ai acheté un 6pack directement à la brasserie à Barrie, bel endroit et on peut gouter tous leurs produits gratuitement en dégustation. Pamplemousse, amertume tranchante. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
An orange beer with a medium and blond head. The nose has strong and tropical fruityness, papaiyas, mangos, some lychee, quite strong fructose. Taste has peaches, medium bitterness, the fruits are staying in the mouth. Unfortunately, the hoppyness is suffered with this bottle and the bitterness is changed to slightly wooden. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. This should be enjoyed fresher but good beer anyway.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured to pint glass. Hazy amber. Very bitter and surprisingly smooth. How did they do that? I had to try this beer just for the name, butt I would drink it again for the taste.

Reddish pour with big white head. Big hops but the malt flavour is there. Not as hoppy as I remember from the first tasting last year. Still decent.
