3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Une bière un peu trouble, avec une mousse assez rare, et un nez de houblons tropicaux plutôt copieux, le tout formant un breuvage à la texture mi-épaisse. La bouche est amère à souhait, mais assez ronde dûe à ses malts, et la facture classique lui réussit bien. Une IPA à classer au rayon des déjà vus donc, mais superbement efficace, une des meilleures sur le marché canadien dans sa forme actuelle.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy pale amber with one finger of tight white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap and well-defined lacing. Nose is pine, citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt. Taste is hoppy bitter with just a little supporting malt sweetness. Medium to full body, moderate sustained carbonation, and a strongly bitter, dry finish.
A decent hop-forward A/IPA that comes quite close to being a DIPA. The malt is well-balanced, albeit to a lower malt / higher hop character. The higher ABV is quite well-integrated as well. The bitterness has a slight harshness, though, particularly on the finish, that prevents a higher score.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Loose Moose, Toronto 05/0714. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Lovely aroma - slight dank veggie hoppiness with some overripe trop fruit. Medium body, medium carbonation. Some caramel, but not too sweet - there’s pine, light veg, light orange, some wood... Good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled bought at the LCBO in Toronto/Canada. Overall a very good wife! Aroma of citrus hops, some leeches, not so nose piercing, but good. Color is golden and copper, head off white, one inch thick, but vanished quiclky. Taste ist nice citrusy, grapefruit and full bodied with a long bitter hops finish. A very well balanced ipa.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured an orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of bitter hops with nice citrus notes and light piney undertones. Taste is also dominated by bitter hops with some nice citrus notes and some light caramel malt notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Very solid IPA that should be made available more regularly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A lighter shade of gold, pours a very rocky solid cap leaving many lacings.Very citrusy nose also has tropical fruits and a load of pine and just a touch of caramel. Quite a nice mix. Like the title suggests this is quite bitter. Actually very bitter and the fruity sweetness helps that along nicely. Its medium bodied though at times seems medium-full. Long bitter finish like I just ate a grapefruit. A winner from this brewer.
