[4540-20120621] Tap. Fresh fruity orange aroma. Hazy, brown orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Orange fruity citrus hops flavour has a very fruity base. Medium body. Quite tasty! (8/4/7/4/16) 3.9
Overheard: "This beer makes me so happy. In the mouth."

On cask at The Rhino - came a hazy gold with a frothy white head. Just bursting with huuuuuge citrusy hop aroma. Flavour the same - this is all about the hops. Medium bitter finish. Pretty one note, but oh man, what a note. I could drink this forever.

On tap at Volo
Aroma: citrus fresh crisp hoppy front. None of roughness that usually comes with boldness. Easy going , approachable character. Very nice.8-
Appearance: cloudy amber that is hazed. Medium light top. Some lace shown. 3+
Palate / Taste: medium bodied. Green citris with bold grapefruit character. Medium light chewiness. Soft body. Quiet bitter but aroma was developed further than set showed in flavor. It went tad overboard.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
Cloudy orange, noticeable carbonation bubbles, lasting 3/8" white head. Mild grapefruit aroma. Above average mouthfeel, though carbonation is dialed to high. I know this is high IBU yet it does not erase the palate. Good drinkability, grapefruit is the key flavour. Malting is unobstrusive. Nice summer beer for hopheads.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
Draught at Burger Bar. Pours a hazy copper with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Good lacing on the glass. Lovely aroma of fruity hops, a bit spicy, a bit sweet, it smells awesome. Flavour’s the same, lots of fruity hops, some spice and sweetness, and a long, big bitter finish -- so much flavour for a 4.4% beer, it’s almost DIPA level hops. Medium bodied. A fantastic IPA -- great stuff. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
Draught at Burger Bar. Cloudy orange, average off white lasting head. Amazing aroma and flavour - mild alcohol, ripe pink grapefruit, tons of citrus, a bit of floral character - lots of pith in the taste. Average to solid body, decent carbonation and a medium-long dry bitter moderately coating finish. Daaaaaaamm good! ---Rated via Beer BADASS for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2012 2012-06-21. Hazy orange boy with a small white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is pleasantly citrusy with some nice orange up front, with some citrus seeds and pithy citrus peel following it up. Decent amount of bitterness is refreshing without being harsh, if finishes fairly dry starts to get even more so as you go on. 7+ Nice citrusy orange aroma, muted leafy green hop touches. Average plus bodied palate suits it nicely. 3+ Pretty solid stuff, great hop character. OCB Week Tap Takeover at Burger Bar, Toronto.
