Sammy (8384) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 surprisingly very good ipa, on tap at Cole’s. Reddish colour with a little lace and head. Big IBU/ Decent drinkability, with some complex flavours. I had again several weeks later and the nose of grapefruit was great.

DocLock (7725) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Draft. Poured copper colored with off-white head. Nose was tropical fruit including mango, tangerine, black pepper. Tasted rich and complex, with a spare caramel malt bill balanced by tropical fruity hops, and a smooth finish. This is a top notch IPA.

mcberko (5999) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany) pours hazy copper orange with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out herbal hops, floral notes, and a bready caramel maltiness. Flavour is quite odd, with some weird vegetal notes, pungent herbal hops, and a bready caramel maltiness. Flavour profile seems to transition through various phases, starting with the vegetal notes, moving towards the more conventional IPA-hoppiness, and then to the bready caramel malts. Not the most refined recipe here, but it’s quite drinkable and moderately enjoyable.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Draft at Jersey City Beer Garden. Pours amber red with an off white head. Grassy and lightly fruity hops, lighter tropical fruity notes, and lightly sweet malts. Balanced and drinkable. Quite good.

blankboy (5957) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a hazy golden-orange with some sediment and a small lasting frothy white head. Aroma of catty, hempy and floral hops foremost along with some tropical fruit and that’s it -- it’s mainly hops. Hoppy flavour, same aforementioned hops, fruitier then the aroma, and with some bready malt. Long sharp bitter finish. Alcohol well hidden. Medium bodied. A solid IPA.
