4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 March 12, 2011 - Great Lakes Tap Take-over at Volo. Draught. Murky yellow-orange with a fairly large creamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma - ooooh, nice! - catnip, catty, pungent, maybe a bit of spruce - citra! 8+ ... Taste - follows, light grain, citrus, and pungent and robust - unlike the Johnny Simcoe, this one may be better tasting than smelling - not much alcohol either - nice balance, too. Solid body, astringent, decent carbonation, a fairly long dry pungent catty finish - yumm. More, please.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow pour with a small white head. Tropical fruits and some citrus zest in the aroma. Flavour is quite hoppy with lots of lemon and hop bitterness, some mango. Pretty nice bitter IPA.

Thanks to cfrancis for this great brew! The nose is great hoppy-floral. The beer starts smooth-floral. Slightly sweetish, nice floral hops with a smooth bitterness lying over the body. Grain, even cookie-dough, fresh citrus-hops. The aftertaste is long, fresh, floral-citrus with a smooth slightly yeasty background. Nice!

Thanks to erzengel for sharing this treat!! Pours a hazy marigold color and and a light tan head. The smell is initially a touch of burnt rubber, fruity hops. The taste is tart fruit, citrus ending dry and a bit bitter. Light+ in body with nice creamy carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours hazy orange-golden with a medium white head that fades quickly to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of lemon and grapefruit rind, with resin, mango, grass and pale malts. The flavour is balanced between moderate citric-tropical hops on the one hand and moderate pale malts on the other. The finish is long and hoppy with lingering hops. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a very nice citra IPA. Reasonably complex yet refreshing--great for summer. 2014-08-30

This is a citrus bomb. All orange. Pours a cloudy orange. Aromas and flavors of orange. Very smooth and extremely drinkable. One of the better ipas I’ve had in awhile.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Nose is full of piney and citrus hops, a noticeable astringency, and a thin crackery malt backing. Flavour is a piney and citrus hop blast, with medium astringency, and a thin but sufficient crackery malt backing. Very hoppy, dry and highly drinkable. Exactly how I like my IPAs. Wonderful stuff.
