blankboy (7081) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2013
Draught at TdD Tap Takeover, Wvrst, May 26. Pours a murky copper-peach with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma is yeasty, fruity and hoppy along with some herbs. Fruity and yeasty flavour along with a good amount of hops and a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Great stuff, I loved it.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
Tap at Wvrst. Hazy/muddy pour. Sticky white head. The aroma is quite fruity and a little bit herbal. Lightly citrusy and a touch spicy. Yeast is expressing with both fruity and spicy notes. Fairly hoppy but also fresh. A nice hoppy brew.

solidfunk (6870) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Decent. Clear orange pour with no head or lacing. Some citrus, malt and resin, but nothing in particular stands out here. Soft carbonation. Tap at volos.

Sammy (10680) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2013
On tap at Volo. Initially was getting significant yeast, and then the hops kicked in and it was OK for an IPA. Quaffable.

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2013
Pours a pale yellow with a bit of white head. Smell is citrus and grass hops. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Taste is a bitter kick, then a slight bitter and sweet aftertaste. It’s ok, but missing some spice and lacking in bitterness.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2012
November 19, 2011 -500ml bottle at Volo. Pours hazy amber with a huge and lasting plug of off-white creamy/foamy head (4+). Smells funky (bretty?) - like a "wild" extremely dry tripel - floral, some alcohol, sweet fruity malt, and a hint of grassy/zesty "C" hop pungency. Taste follows, maybe a bit of brandy, intensely floral; a real hybrid, but more Belgian than west coast IPA (7+). Average body, sharply carbonated, a longish slightly sour funky/floral dry bitter finish. Really really good stuff.

MartinT (8987) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
My Bottom Line :
This quenching India Pale Ale presents plenty of citrus fruit and peaches in a dry and stylish mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam mounts the misty blond-amber.
-Malts offer light honey and crisp cereals.
-Hop bitterness is resinous and peppery.
-Carbonation appears higher than usual because residual sugars are lower than average for the style.

Bottle.

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
[4440-20120602] 500mL bottle. Sweet fruity malt aroma. Clear, amber orange body with medium-body creamy off-white head. Bitter fruity hops flavour has a long bitter aftertaste. Medium body is fairly bitter. Good, interesting. (7/3+/7/4/15) 3.6
(An Afternoon with TdD @ Wvrst, Toronto, ON)

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
2012-06-02. Crisp amber body with a nice foamy beige head. 3+ Interesting flavour, modest hops and bitterness, odd flavour from the hops, sort of citrusy and sort of a floral character, very light resin and leafy touches, the melange of all of these makes for an interesting combination. Bitterness grows pleasantly throughout the glass. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Modest hop aroma, light leafy touches, floral whispers. 7+ Not entirely sure what to make of it, the hop profile is different from what I expected but I am glad we opted for a full bottle as it finished off our session at Wvrst rather nicely. Bottle at Wvrst, Toronto
