on cask at the brewery in toronto. golden (this doesnt look like an IPA). no hops in the aroma. no hops anywhere. my server told me the hop shortage has affected this brew and its not as good as it once was. ill i can say is this is an uninspired offering.

Cask pour at Victory Cafe looks fantastic: butter yellow body with a plump & curvy one finger head. Clear case of nice legs, shame about her face. This is a mild tasting British style IPA, with a flaccid palate & far too flowery flavour. May go well for a quick pint before work, but other than that your other options have more pull.

Ferris (3885) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2013
Cask - Earthy and a bit of grapefruit. Clear gold with a thin head. Grassy and resinous hops, perfume, mellow with a light malt backbone. Nice cask style session English IPA.

On tap at Granite Brewery - golden with a soapy head. Far and away the worst IPA I have ever had. Taste is buttery and watered down. If you ever have the opportunity to drink one of these, get something else instead.

Grey Cup 2012. Sample tray. Good head on cask. Nice hop delivery. Grapefruit with light malt gentleness. Nice finish and aftertaste.

LilBeerDoctor (3440) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Cask @ Volo. Pours a cloudy orange with minimal head. Aroma of toasted malt, jam, apricot, toasted biscuit. Flavor of bready malt and bitterness up front, followed by spicy hops and tobacco. Light, drinkable, and tasty. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

Cask conditioned at Burger Bar. Poured golden with large frothy head - so I think it was near the end of the cask or it shouldn’t have been so carbonated. Great aroma of pine and floral hops. Taste was smooth with sweet and bitter mixed well.

dfearnley (930) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2012
18 oz cask conditioned to pint glass Sour apple and bubblegum aroma. Hazy yellowish amber with a 1/2 cm bubbly white head. Bubblegum is there in the taste too which disappears quickly into the bitterness.

solidfunk (3886) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2011
A good leave, although it isn’t super bitter or really all that hoppy for an IPA. Not bad, but doesn’t match the style well for me. On tap

rederic (2911) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2010
On cask at the Toronto location, clear yellow color, with a small white head, light floral hop, resinous, piney, fruity, citrusy nose with some lemon, grapefruit, orange rind notes with some mild toasted, caramel malt, toffee, kind of tea leaf accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a juicy flowery hop, leafy, grassy character, with some resinous, citrusy, grapefruit skin flavours with some toasted, caramelized grainy cereal malt undertones, leading towards a juicy, hoppy, leafy, resiny bittering finish.

Very good. A little bit of biterness that you expect from an IPA. Nice golden colour. Finished very nice. Recommended.
