2012-08-15. Bright lightly hazy orange body, modest off white head. 3+4 Lovely first sip is quite hoppy with lots of pleasant sweet citrus up front, orange, then lemon with a funky not quite cannabis leafy green hop overtone. Slowly gains bitterness as the glass goes on, and leafy hop character grows through the middle and into the finish. Leafy green hops with a light earthy character. 7++ Smooth average plus palate. 3+ First sniff is quite citrusy, the second takes on more of an earthy leafy green hops. 7+ I personally liked the initial citrus character much more than the leafy green hops that emerged later, Pretty solid IPA. On tap at Volo, Toronto

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 Draught at Volo. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange-copper with a small diminishing frothy white head. Lovely aroma of hops, fruity and catty, resiny and piney too, along with some fruit and caramel malt in the back. Delicious hoppy flavour, all the aforementioned hops, along with some fruit and malt way in the back. Nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. Great stuff, very enjoyable. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.
