Project X bottle. Great American hoppy aroma and taste, with a good balance of malty sweetness. Very high on the bitter side, and very good.

Pfriesen’s bottle. Amber pour, a thumbs worth of head. Great lacing throughout the glass. Citrus fruits in the aroma - Grapefruit, Grapefruit rind, Pine needles - bitter. BItter hops up front, Young Grapefruit, Lemon rind, Sweet Crystal malt. Medium body, good carb. I’d be happy with a few bottles of this in my fridge.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask pint at Loon. Murky amber with a soso off-white froth. Really nice grapefruit, woodsy, citrus hops, good caramel malt support, orange peel, resinous, delicious. Medium body, nearly still (cask). A bit more malt than the nose, still plenty of nice, juicy hops, more pine/resin/woodsy than the nose and somewhat less fruity, delicious; dry with really good bitterness and a caramel/toffee/bready finish with some nice hop notes.

On tap at Gig’s. A hazed gold with a decent white cap. Westcoast IPA aromas - floral, grapefruit, citrus some substantia malts. Robust, thick moth feel, big blast of citrusy-resinous hops are balanced off well with ample crystal and pale malts. Clean bitter finish. Very fresh tasting. Good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I tried this beer on draught on June 8, 2012 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a slightly hazed medium gold with a thin creamy cap that laced well. The aroma was grainy malt, grapefruity hops, and some mango/pineapple notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is very citrusy with the grapefruit hops up front, and the tropical fruit tones less pronounced, but still there.

Draught at Burger Bar. Hazy orange pour, decent solid white fizzy-foamy head. Juicy cirtrus and resin aroma, mild alcohol - taste follows, oddly like pine nuts. Average body, solid carbination, medium-long resin/grassy finish. Solid.

Cask at Volo IPA Challenge. Pours a cloudy orange with a long-lasting bubbly white head. Lovely citra hops aroma, a bit catty and resiny as well, along with some citrus fruit. Flavour of citrusy, resiny hops, some citrus fruit and malt in the background -- fruity and hoppy, tasty stuff. Average to medium bodied. Very good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Great Lakes Anniversary BBQ. Pours a clear orange colour with a little head that seems to persist. Smells really nice, some malty sweetness and some really nice citrus, maybe orange? Palate is a bit watery but still seems to have medium body. Taste is worse than the smell, goes straight to hoppy and doesn’t go back. Aftertaste is all grapefruit. Decently refreshing but lacking in complexity.
