COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Session Ale - 3.2% "I was once a great entertainer who thrilled throngs of children with dance. Then my puppet master became a CGI whiz. Now Im an inanimate object - a piece of cloth with asbestos stuffing and lifeless strings. I have no pulse and no soul. I do, however, have a rabid desire for revenge. Beware puppet master - I know where you live..."

Karol (699) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 27, 2015
Can, or to be precise, 12 cans bought at the brewery in Toronto. Overall a great light IPA. Color is light golden like a pale lager. Head is soapy and vanishes but remains a thin layer. Fantastic but simple aroma of citrus hops, some green apple, some pine in the back. Taste is refreshing with tons of mild grapefruit and citrus hops, but with no detectable malt. Bitter hops longlasting aftertaste. IMO a great session IPA!

Tap at bar volo. Pours gold with a green edge and white head. Lovely aroma - musty, lightly funky trop fruit. Light body, medium carbonation. Light pine, light green apple skin, lemon, white bread, light soap, a little mango. Flavorsome session IPA - it's a touch thin but that's forgive able at the abv. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Slight haze, orange yellow body, medium white head. Fairly floral hop aroma. Decently bitter taste, thin body. Definitely drinkable.

Metalchopz (2595) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
Pours a hazy golden colour with a white head and sticky lacing. Nice fresh hoppy nose with grapefruit notes and pine needles. Beautiful fresh mild grassy hops over the malt grain with decent yeast. Lightly dry mouthfeel. A very nice easy-drinking session light IPA that is powerful for the low alcohol content. As good as a normal 5% ABV. IPA, so up there with the Muskoka Detour.

Pour at the Only during The Toronto Ratebeer Westside vs Eastside Rumble tumbles into the glass like a ditsy blonde falling down the stairs. Enjoyable session IPA (a style that is getting pretty damn tired already if you ask me) that seems to be a one hop smash (Im probably wrong). Clearly part of the Great Lakes stable. Helsdon says it has no soul but hes been wrong before (and i think hes right if hes taking about the style). Enjoyable.

Bendrixian (1323) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap. Pours a hazy yellow colour. has some citrus and hoppy notes but is very yeasty at the same time. More of the same on the palate. it is an ipa but very yeasty that adds a certain spice to the flavour profile. not a fan of this style as they always seem hollow.

dresden (1135) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Cloudy golden with a nice fluffy white head. Loads of fruity and great hop aroma. Grapefruit, grass, some citrus Orange. Really nice and flavorful stuff that I wish I could buy all summer

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
I like this beer because I can drink quite a few. Its cloudy rusty gold and comes with a nice frothy cap, leaving good lace on the glass. Fruity nose, it really hints at the cattiness of Sauvin, a bit of pine too. Bitter, just a tough of fruity sweetness comes through. Light bodied, bitter finish lasts quite a time. Draught at The Ship
