3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Community (old Brewsters in Castledowns), 6%. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, mlid citrusy, but mostly piney, and earthy. Taste is more of the same, dry hops (resinous, piney stickyness) and toasted bread dough malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Definitely comes off as a british ipa despite the northwest hops (Cascade, Amarillo) - not a ton of grapefruit on the nose or palate- but the finish isnt overly dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Finally, my first beer from Manitoba. Bottle courtesy of toffsbury. Pours hazy amber with nearly no head. Aroma of raisins and citrus fruits. Slightly fruity taste, with some spice, pine, and a dry bitter finish. Good enough IPA to make me willing to try other stuff from these guys, if I ever get the chance.

Everything a good IPA should be; great piney, grapefruit hops and rich malt on the nose. Aromas follow through on the palate with an appetizing bitter finish. A definite "go-to" for IPA lovers.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 Decent well-rounded ipa. A little citrus, though this isn’t quite as fresh as it ought to be, and lots of malt. Pours orange with good head and lacing. Average carbonation. Finishes bitter with residual sweetness. Bottle at wvrst.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pretty good IPA. I picked this up (at a surprising expense) at C’est What? in Toronto. Very bitter, slightly unbalanced. Rich in aroma with a brownish red coloration.

Very low carbonation with this on tap. Pretty much an average IPA with a bit more flavour and less bitterness.
