COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours with dark amber, burnt orange, copper colour and off-white, ecru-coloured foam. The aromatics are primarily citrus (grapefruit) with a subtle pine note. After the first scent, the malt aromatics come through – slight hint of toffee with some mild aromas of hay and straw. The body of the beer is roasted malts, dark toffee, a gentle molasses flavour and a touch of black licorice. The mouth feel is rounded and very dry. The finish is moderate-to-bold bitterness that lingers longer but is very pleasant. The finish is enveloping and builds with each sip.

scantron (63) - Ontario, - OCT 31, 2012
October 6, 2012 ; 6% abv, 750 mL bottle, BBD Oct 29/12; rock glass Citrus hops dominate. Pours a caramel colour with a nice tan head. Good looking beer. Balanced caramel malts with grapefruit citrus hops. Resin finish is lingering. A little thin in the body but overall, clean character. Highly drinkable, which isn’t a great thing for an IPA (I think). Resin bitterness is a bit too powerful.

Canmoore (280) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a frothy white head. Aroma includes notes of malt, grapefruit and mango. Tasting notes include caramel and buttery malts, and citrus and pine hops, and finishes with a crisp bitter bite. Not bad! I think they found a great mix of malt and hops in this one!

Deep amber/orange tinted body. White head. Pine, citrus. Quite sessionable, watery almost. Nothing memorable.

dreamflower (592) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Floral aroma, frothy head, clear copper body. A bit on the acidic side. A solid IPA.

northropfrye (2279) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Light orange/amber body with foamy white head and nice lacing. Citrus and warm malt aroma. Taste is not crazy bitter, but nice hoppiness and a bit of nuttiness. Medium palate. Not bad.

pintbypint (2669) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
750ml brown bottle. Deep golden, clear. Low sitting white cap with a creamy bead. Nose has some grapefruit, orange and is a bit woody and piney. Taste has light caramel base malt, pine and woody notes than blend into a bright grapefruity and fruity finish. Aftertaste has grapefruit and leafy hop. Bitterness is light. Actually a pretty good IPA from a brewery that usually doesn’t impress me too much.

cards04 (1825) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
I thought this was nothing special. Aromas of toast and dark malts. More bitter toasty malts in the flavor... Maybe some hop finish... Otherwise average.

reebtogi (4310) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
750ml capped bottle pours a golden amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with herbal notes. Taste is predominantly herbal with some grapefruit and pine hop bitterness balanced nicely with a light roasted caramel malty sweetness. This is a unique and interesting IPA and one that is definitely worth checking out.

Strangebrewer (893) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
bottle. Poured clear medium amber-brown with a rocky off-white head. Sweet malt aroma with fresh hops. Crisp carbonated mouthfeel with a sticky dry finish. Flavour of caramel malt with a fair amount of fresh herbal hops, ends with some peppery spice.
