The beer pours a very hazy golden-orange colour with a long lasting white head. The aroma is citrusy hops, some tropical fruit, and caramel and grains. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is a mix of tropical fruit and citrus with some sweet malt as well. Easy to see why this has been a favourite of the Toronto beer crowd for the last 3-4 years.

The kind of Ontario brew that makes even bitter old me smile. Maple pour with skinny finger cap that fades to subtle valley & river beds. A palate that grabs your boys, gives ’em a tug & twist. A keeper.

Tropical fruit, citrus explodes as this one pours, being very fresh must help. A bit of sweet malt and pine come through as well. Looks great, slightly hazy copper color and a thick white head. Taste is predominantly pine, earthy notes and biscuit/breadyness. Get a bit of a tropical aftertaste and the hop bitterness is quite apparent on this one. Balance could be better on this one, but a good IPA for sure. Medium bodied, average carbonation.

On tap at Imbibe GLB Tap Takeover. Slightly hazy amber with a foamy white head. Big citrus fruit aroma (mainly grapefruit) - nice! Taste starts off sweet then quickly turns extremely bitter. Mostly just malt flavour in there, with a little spice and some fruitiness. Silky smooth mouthfeel with a great body.

Pours golden clear with good head and lacing. Smells nice and fruity. Finishes mildly bitter, actually less than the devil made me hop it pale ale I just had from Great Lakes. Pretty thick consistency. Tap at,volos.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draught at Bryden’s, Toronto, Sept 23 2012) Poured a hazy brownish orange with a bubbly whitish head that left some lacing. Aroma of resinous pine, some citrus, earthiness and caramel malts. On palate, leads with a combination of pine resin, citrus peel and caramel, quite balanced, with fairly strong greenish bitterness from the 90 minute hops boil kicking in mid-palate and drying the beer out along with some alcohol heat. Body medium-full, carbonation moderate and creamy. Another well-balanced, drinkable IPA on the bigger side for GL.
