The weather channel describes Lake Effect snow as a “mass of sufficiently cold air moving over a body of water creating an unstable temperature profile in the atmosphere.” Who cares. This beer, however, has nothing to do with that drivel. It was inspired by a summer spent drinking heaps of IPAs on a stoop on Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo, NY.

Eructoblaster (3418) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle - 650ml. Cloudy golden body with a thin white frothy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrusy, malty, yeasty, and herbal hints. Alcohol is subtle. Its sharp hoppy taste carries mango, orange, coriander, and woody notes. Ends with a long bitter/herbal finish. Very enjoyable.

HopsandBolts (210) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
650 ml bottle from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a hazy pale yellow with a finger of dense white head. Retention is short and there is lots of lacing left behind.

Aroma: Pine, citrus hops, floral notes.

Flavours: Citrus, hops, orange peel, lemon, hint of mango, grain.

Mouthfeel: Moderate viscosity with a rich creamy finish.

Overall: A really nice IPA. I’ve had this one before but like a lot of others, I hadn’t reviewed it. For me it’s the aroma and creamy mouthfeel that really shine for this one. I haven’t had anything from the Tank 10 series thus far that wasn’t really good.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
22 oz bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a snifter. Pours slightly hazy amber with a medium beige head that mostly remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big citrus notes, along with grapefruit, pine and moderate pale malts. Tropical fruit and pineapple also come through. The flavour is mildly bitter with fruity notes and big citrus notes that pick up again towards the end. It finishes with a long, tropical-citric finish. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a smooth, watery texture. Overall, a very respectable IPA that falls on the more subtle end of the spectrum. While the hops are well done, the malts could be a bit more prominent. 2014-12-06

Pours hazy orange with 2 fingers of white head. Poured from a 650ml bottle. Aroma of hops and citrus. A good amount of bitterness to start with, but the carbonation and citrus taste takes over and clears the pallette for the next round. For something rated 80 ibu, this is an easy drinking IPA. Overall I am required to give a low score for pallette, since the taste doesn’t linger around, but I think that is also the genius behind this beer.

pictoman (812) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Poured from 650mL bottle. Hazy orangey yellow with white head. Aroma of tropical hops (mango, mild pineapple and orange), subtle caramel malt, mild funk and some grassy hops. Taste has very predominant orange hop flavour with a little grass and malt. Great flavour, only medium bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 A hazy light orange body with a medium sized white head. The aromas, are citrus and pine swirling together. Tastes echo that, and there is the definite presence of bitter orange peel. This is a fantastic IPA that I could drink regularly, and a true illustration of the heights their Tank Ten series is capable of achieving.

Thanks to Harrison_gord for this one! Pours a really, really hazy golden, might as well say cloudy, with a thin white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of tropical fruits and slight onions. Taste is moderately bitter and not an ounce too sweet. Flavors are of pine, citrus and fruits. Body is medium and carbonation high. Finish is bitter and dry, of moderate length. Overall a fine brew, my expectation were a little high on this one and it didn’t really disappoint but it could have been better I think. Next batch, maybe?
