4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Rating number 500
lovely citrus pine aroma
Pours a nice cloudy orange with a nice good sized white froth
Not as grapefruity as some American IPA’s but very nice dry hoppy finish

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Has a poignant citrus nose on a light golden body with a fairly thin white head. The "big C" hops deliver with fruity hops. Grapefruit is present, but not overpowering, backed up by a very juicy mixture of other citrus and tropical hop accents. A west-coast-IPA-style sweet bready malt effectively underpins this punchy IPA. A simple but very tasty beer.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 purchased at LCBO in a 650ml bottle. Very good IPA. Bitter with lots of grapefruit tastes. If there was a way to balance it out a little bit more this could be a top IPA, but none the less still very good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy pale orange with a small off white head that leaves good lace. Big nose of citrus with light background of toast. Bitter from start to finish with grapefruit dominant and enough sweet malts and a touch of honey to smooth things out a bit but the hops are the star. Medium slick body with nice carbonation and a great dry bitter finish that just keeps going. Love it.

Pours a slightly hazy light amber/yellow colour with some lacing.There is plenty of ’c-hops’ in the nose with some pine cone simcoe goodness. Needless to say it is all about the hops in the aroma, with those same bittering and citrus hoppy flavours carrying through on the palate. Good stuff!

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, pale malts, citrus, grapefruit a d some fruity esters. Taste is caramel, grapefruit and resin. Bitterness is a bit harsh but overall a good mix of hops and malts. Nice full bodied ipa.

650 np bottle. Pours a hazy, pale orange with a thin, off white head that leaves mild lacing. Aroma has big notes of pine, resin, citrus, and a hint of bread. Taste is bitter but not overblown. Notes of resin, orange citrus, grapefruit, and pine with a drawn out, bitter aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Clean, refreshing texture with a dry finish. Overall a really nice IPA. Very drinkable with lots of pine, resin, and citrus. Worth getting!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in an English pint glass. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has lots of pine, along with citrus, flowers and tropical fruit. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout with pine, spice and biscuity malts. The finish is moderate in length, dry and bitter with plenty of citrus. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dry texture, average carbonation and a fair astringency in the finish. Overall, this is a nice IPA with big hops and an attempt at balance. Refreshing and well made. 2013-06-11

Grapefruit, citrus aroma. Nice bitter hoppy tropical fruit flavour which cleans up quickly; not a lot of depth unfortunately.....but a nice beer.
