22. Pours a hazy medium bronze with a fluffy white head that leaves light strings of lace as it comes down. Gorgeous sweet fresh pine nose, really a clean and natural scent to it. Creamy medium body with woolly carb. Nutty, biscuity mid-palate with pine overtones and then a big full-on resin wash at the end. Lingering bitter finish. Tasty IPA.

blankboy (6313) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, Oct. 6. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small frothy semi-lasting off-white head. Aroma of resiny and citrusy hops. Nice hoppy flavour, slightly spicy and with caramel malt and a decent bitter finish. medium bodied. A very good IPA.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Draught @ Paddy’s in Portland:   Amber, a little pale, thin white head, spotty lacing.   Hoppy nose, pale citrus, very minor earthiness.   Hoppy earthiness on the tongue, very slight citrus aspect.   Seems like a cross between a Pale Ale and IPA.   Clean, minor citrus zest and soil on the finish.   Not a big IPA, flavorful, but you hop heads probably won’t think it hoppy enough.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a little more bitterness.   Decent IPA.   Pretty much just straight forward.   Don’t know if its organic, but comes across that way a bit.

"this one well received as well, though i’ve seen wild fluctuation in the quality of organic brews. This one just didn’t do it for me. Nothing stands out, one of the most boring of the night, and a sub par ipa. 2014 - another HUB beer that sucked in a can but was nice at the pub (cask). 2.6-3.5."

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2010
In short: A tangy and herbal IPA. Nice tasty brew
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after receiving it from after4ever. Thanks a lot Tom
The look: Cloudy orangey-blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: The hoppy nose if vibrant with freshness, very tangy, herbaceous and with plenty of pine needles. Taste has toasted white bread, orange peels, candied fruits, pine-cone juice, biscuits, fresh green grass. The finish brings a mild-medium sharp bitterness, a mild tartness and a surprising dryness. Pine-tree resin on the comeback. A bit of white sugar I could have done without. Body is slender and the carbonation is a little too much. Ok, so this is an Organic/Bio beer. An environmental friendly beer. Good. I say Earth first. We will strip the other planets later.

alexsdad06 (6099) - Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2010
22 oz. bottle from kenb. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma had quite a bit of orange and grapefruit, crisp resiny hops and mild caramel malts. The flavor is a nice blend of caramel dipped biscuity malts and the nice grapefruit citrus hops. Other flavors include resiny hops with a hint of herbal spiciness. Medium bodied with a dry bitterness to the finish. This is an enjoyable IPA especially since it is organic which I usually have more issues with.

Sampled at GCBF 2010. Hayish malt with green hops. Pale golden, low cream. Amarillo flavour on hayish malt. Medium to light body, sparkly mouthfeel. Grassy finish. Falls of a cliff at the end.
