RichardW (1502) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Bottled from the brewery shop. Quite a fragrant aroma, with elderflower and honey notes. Strongly flavoured with a whisky tang in there, vying with some great dry woody notes and background caramel. More whisky in the finish and some medicinal flavour too.

A balanced ipa that I enjoyed. Goo hip bitterness balanced by roasty malt back bone. I enjoyed it. And will again

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2009
Tap at Cactus Club, Vancouver. Deep amber beer with a thin white head. Aroma is fairly hoppy. Light grapefruit and a bit of pine character on the top. The flavour is quite crisp with a firm crackery malt character. Light orange peel, grapefruit and pine flavour with a lingering hoppy bitterness. Itís pretty nice really.

CanCrusher (620) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle 0,33 L. Pours clear amber colour, with thin white head. Aroma is more or less hoppy. Grapefruit, orange and some pine. And a bit of caramel, too. Light sweet at the start of the sip, turns into a medium bitter in the aftertaste. Medium body with soft carbonation. Not outstanding, but nice decant IPA.

mike67 (779) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours orange with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, biscuit malt and ripe fruit. Body is full and crisp. Taste is of citrusy hops, biscuit malt, hints of caramel and fruit. Finish is long and bitter. Good IPA, among many other.

Papillon (366) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
341 mL Bottle. Gold-copper body with a wispy head leaving some stringy lace. Intense citrus-grapefruit hoppy aroma stands out over the sweet malts. Sweet malts are there in the flavor, lots of grapefruit rind hoppiness in the aftertaste and finish. The body is a bit light for a beer of that category.

LordGnome (9) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2014 does not count
20 oz pint, local pub, Calgary. I really like this IPA. Itís not the biggest, hoppiest, most alcoholic IPA on the block by a long shot but itís very drinkable. Aroma is definitely hops- lots of hops- but with a more floral note than most West Coast IPAs. Pale, clear beer with a minimal white head. Appearance not unlike a pint of Marstonís Pedigree. It tastes of hops, but not as bitter as a double IPA. Thereís bitterness there but not an overwhelming amount. Light bodied, average texture, lively carbonation and a decent hoppy finish. Overall this is a beer Iím likely to order frequently and would happily drink all evening- unlike most 10% Imperial Double IPAs. It would be a good starter IPA for someone looking to explore the style, or else one to look out for in a local pub as itís more interesting than standard choices in my area.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2011
Single bottle purchased on 02/23/2011 in Calgary, AB. Colour: A pleasent medium orange with gold traces and medium soft velvety head. Nose: A touch fecal, but settles into yeast, lively hops, a bit of pineapple. Taste: Light-medium sweet, light sour, medium bitter. Some caramel is displayed but quickly opens to cashews, and pleasent if not slightly dull hops. Finish is quick and short for an IPA. Not the greatest Granville product iíve tried.

DerWeg (1493) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2012
341ml bottle from the hand pick mixed 6 pack @ the LCBO. clear old gold color with natural white head. aroma is grassy-floral-herbal hops and some spicy alefruit, taste pale alefruit and nice hop bitterness and lemon zest - like a Super ESB -wonderful prickly-creamy feel and finish is nicely rounded with sweetness, drying hop and herbal-florals. Chin chin!
