On cask at the Brickworks Farmers Market. Pours a murky dark amber colour with modest-sized eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is dank citrus with some herbal/resiny character and solid fruity/toffeish malt. Flavour is big dank citrusy hops with a bit of cattiness and a solid English-style maltiness underneath. Average plus body. Some lingering bitterness in the finish. Nice.

blankboy (7275) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2011
Cask at Volo. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma’s quite resiny along with some definite cat pee action (that’s good!), some citrus fruit and some malt in the back. Flavour is, again, quite resiny along with cat pee and citrus fruit, well backed by sweet caramel malt. Nice long bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good stuff.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2011
3rd annual Ontario Cask IPA Challenge tasted blind. Hazy golden pour. The nose is tropical and citrusy. Fresh pineapple and mango. There are also some very light faint fruity esters. A bit of buttery character as it comes up but it seems to just lend a little bit of sweetness. Sort of medium-sweet palate along with a fairly vineous flavour. A little bit of toffee and some light stewed fruit as well. Pretty solid.
