Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, - SEP 17, 2012
This IPA poured a light amber colour with a big, bold, very light brown coloured head. Nice lacing. To the nose there are scents of hops, hops and more hops. Citrus, juniper, pineapple and dough are the most prodominent. First swig had a creamy mouthfeel with a moderate hop flavour. Tastes of floral hops, malt and light caramel. Finish is very hoppy with the full floral flavour lingering.

Draft at the source. Deep golden amber color, off white head. Aroma of fresh fruit, citrus. Taste has bitter lemon, hay.

fiveacestx (634) - Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2014
On tap - rusty orange with a medium head and a wall of lacing on the glass. Strong hop aroma and an orange/grapefruit hop taste as well as some orange peel. Decently bitter. I liked it! Not a west coast hop bomb but good as far as Canada goes.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle shared by solidfunk at the DC Summer Saison & Sour Tasting, 7/12/14. Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of cinnamon(?), caramel malt, floral hops. The taste is bitter hops, caramel and biscuit malt. Medium bodied, slight lingering bitterness. Yay new province (or is that a territory?) tick!

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Muddled hop resins scent this drinkable, but barely passable IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the cloudy amber.
-Hops smell and taste tired even though this brew is supposed to be fresh.
-Malts are also poorly defined.
-Mouthfeel is lean and bubbly.

johnnnniee (2456) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 22, 2014
On tap at The Gahan House as part of the sampler. Pours a slightly hazy deep chestnut color with a smallish white head. Aromas of earthy citrus hops and a light crackery bready caramel maltiness. The flavor is bitter and resinous with a solid shot of caramel maltiness behind it. Decent IPA but it relies more on harsh bitterness than smooth hop flavor.

Good malt profile and some decent. Pours orange with good head and lacing. Bottle thanks to Travlr.

BeerandBlues2 (10065) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle shared by Travlr. Pours clear amber with a frothy and bubbly off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast and grain malt, soapy and floral hops, apple esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, sweet malt and light fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

VertBaconStrips (2100) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
Said fuck it and got a full glass despite a deep feeling that it was not worth it. Options were limited. Nice looking pour. Caramelly and sweet nose that lacks any complexity, more sweet peach / rrgf blend on the candy side. Gotta smell deep. After a long sit this gained a bit of citrus yet retained the caramel portion. Average bitterness that mostly fades. Averageish ish ish.

seamus1759 (2) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014 does not count
Nice aroma of tangerine and berries. The colour is somewhat unusual for an IPA. Good malt and hop flavour however the bittering hops could be scaled down a few IBU’s. An average beer that could be a great beer with a few adjustments.
