Tap at Volo. There is a tight white head over a pale golden beer. There is a lot of orange peel and mango tropical fruit. Peach and a touch of light pale malt. Hoppy and a little bit of flinty malt flavour that works really well for me. A touch of soft fruitiness in addition to the fairly lean malts. A little bit of lingering moderate bitterness. Damn tasty brew.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 a reddish tinge to this one. A big IBU, big bitterness, very tasty. Neutral aroma. Backed up by a decent malt backbone. Had this on nitro, which lessened the bitterness gave it a lace sheet, more drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 2012-04-21. Lightly hazy orange body. Big aroma, odd funky grapefruit, pith, bit odd but enjoyable. 7+ Flavour has a good amount of grapefruit, but of tropical fruit and modest bitterness throughout. 7+ Average to light bodied palate, light carbonation. Enjoyable, this was one of the better ones of the day but I think it is much better presented on tap. 7+/3/7+/3/15+ Blind Tasting on Cask at Volo IPA Challenge
2011-11-25. Crisp orange body, small white head. 3+ Lovely hoppy bitterness, nice citrus character, orange and tangerine, light resin touches. Yumm! 9+ Modest aroma, mild citrus notes. 7+ Average bodied palate. 3+ Lovely IPA. 8/3/9/3/18 - 4.1 On tap at Volo, Toronto

Sample at the Strange Brew Tasting on 02/18/2012. The beer is a mostly clear yellow-gold color with a medium thin bone white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of hops, citrus, pine and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle, shared with Parksy, Grippitis, and Ian; sent to me by Sammy. The bottle leaked a little in transit, so I was kind of worried about this little fella. My fears were unfounded, as the pour was lively with brisk carbonation and excellent head formation. Beautiful perfumey grapefruit and mango hop character, very fresh and zippy. Intensely bitter finish. Light caramel malts allow for supreme expression of hop character. A really terrific IPA-- thanks Sammy!

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.
