COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full of sticky resinous hops, our American style IPA was inspired by the pitcher’s rosin bag. This brew is double-dry-hopped with Citra, Cascade, Amarillo and Centennial, giving it a whack of zesty tangerine and bright orange aromas. Catch the taste of tropical fruits with a moderately bitter dry finish.

Tranquillity (1697) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2016
Draft. Hazy body, thick uneven white head. The aroma is very fresh of hops, with a very balanced and overwhelming hoppyness.

Lubiere (12266) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2015
A lightly hazed golden ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, loads of piney resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, biscuit malt, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, treacle, very nice. On tap at Bar Hop Brewco.

Victoria Day purchase at brewery bottle shop -- only 12 minute walk from my pad -- brings home this bottle. Hits the glass a sharp reddish brown with a small cap that disappears quicker than my attention span at a baseball game. A very middle of the road IPA: somewhat bitter, nothing more than a hint of tropical or citrus. Says on the label that it was bottled on April 10th & that just seems a little behind the times (uh oh, are on site sales sluggish?). The reviews here are either too high or too low & in true ratebeer fashion the truth lies somewhere in the middle. What makes it standout from the crowd is the almost rye-IPA style. If I were to consult on this brew my advice would be to slap the brewers hand when he reaches for the hops in a vain effort to get him to add more hops to the mix. Will buy again.

Niall73 (2413) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
On tap at barhop, Toronto. Pours gold with a white head. Lovely big trop fruit aroma mango and passion fruit. Medium body, medium carbonation. Big bitterness alongside juicy fruitiness - orange, mango, lemon. There's pine and caramel too and a big resinous bitter finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

May 14, 2014. Beer Mavens dinner at beerbistro. Very hoppy nose, smell a hint of sharp white cheddar? Orangey yellow colour, transparent. Whitish head. Very hoppy flavour. Trace of malt. Nice lacing. Citrus and pine aromas and flavours. I find it lacks depth.

TheJester (2372) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
On tap at Bar Hop. This one is better than it’s rated here. It’s clearly an IPA in aroma, taste, and finish. But there is a nice spiciness to it that differentiates it from the crowd. Almost like a rye-PA. Definitely above average, this one deserves to be more widely available.

mcberko (11870) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
On tap at Bar Volo, pours a fairly clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out resinous and piney hops, and just enough biscuity malt. Flavour is similar, bringing out quite a potent resinous hop profile, along with piney hops, and biscuity malt. Really well-balanced and really hoppy. Excellent beer.

[5336-20130504] Cask. Caramelly toasted grains aroma. Slightly hazy, brown orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Bitter herbal citrus flavour has a toasted caramel background. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5
(IPA Challenge @ Volo, Toronto, ON)
