TheJester (2199) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Gold with a small white head. Tropical aroma from the hops - mango mostly. The flavour is milder but still appealing, and leans into citrus a bit. Decent body and bitterness for the abv. Nice. Very sessionable.

Bendrixian (1345) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2015
Golden amber pour. Big hops, freshly fermented pine cones. Medium body with a hoppy finish but lacks a bit of body and staying power. Not bad though.

MarkoR (732) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2015
On tap at Bar Hop, in Toronto. Pours a cloudy golden orange colour with a medium foamy white head. Aroma is citrus, mango, moderate hops. Taste is citrus, hops. Full hop flavour in a light body IPA. I like!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5602) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a murky apricot color with a small foamy white head that left great lacing. The aroma was pine and cactus. The flavor was bitter, sour and tart pine, cactus and catbox. Very long finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

Listigovers (531) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2015
Hazy gold with lots of carbonation, big foamy head which disappears quickly. Smells like mango. Light to medium bodied, good hop flavour without too much malt. It is fairly carbonated, decent length aftertaste. Lighter in body than average IPA with full hop flavour.

robinvboyer (3583) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2015
Tap at the brewpub. A solid ipa, good hops, some nice citrus and citrus zest. Solid malts to balance. Servicable, nothing to go nuts for but a nice quaff if you are looking for a good ipa.

Niall73 (2284) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2015
Tap at brewpub. Pours a hazy pale orange gold with a white head. Nice, lightly pissy trop fruit aroma. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Lemon, lime, pine, orange, grapefruit, woody resin... Solid bitter finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Freaky_tiki (794) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
Pour at indie ale house is cooking oil yellow with a crisp white mushy cap. This is in the same edgy cat pissy ipa school as Bellwoods Cat Lady, all sharp angles & shimmering hop notes. Fantastic guzzling IPA. Still, I fail to understand why the indie is so keen on avoiding a bar atmosphere. This place is lit up brighter than a hockey arena.

GlennHendry (130) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2015
Not a lot of aroma but plenty of taste. Loads of lemony and zesty citrus hops on the tongue with just a little bit of bitter funk. Excellent summer session IPA.

jkwood04 (4830) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 14, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of lightly fruity and wine-like and light citrusy hops, pale malts, some light dough, and light earthiness. Flavor the same with a nice blend and cool hops. Average texture. A cool IPA.
