BreWedge (257) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
275 ml bottle (275...weird) @ D'Arcy McGee's Ottawa. Pours a clear amber with a large off-white head. Aroma is crisp citrusy hop and bready dough. Taste brings a little bit of malt up front but is quickly replaced by a fairly gentle dry hoppy bite. Slightly astringent medium finish. Not very complex, very unremarkable IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Quevillon (2407) - Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
275 ml bottle purchased at the LCBO on Rideau and King Edward (Ottawa) on January 5, 2013. Honey copper, little head. Green grass hopped aroma, a little dry. The taste is similar, but with hints of medicine herb, aspirin bitterness. It’s like drinking a bottle of aspirin!

Sweet malty aroma mixed with earthy/floaral hops. Not much citrus or pine on the nose. Dark brown to match with the nose, clear. Taste has minimal bitterness, earthy/piney hops upfront and malt sweetness. Finishes a bit watery, light carbonation. Interesting but watery IPA.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2012
On tap at C’est What? Pours a clear dark orange with a thick white head. Aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruit, overall just lots of fruit. Flavor is also super fruity up front (but more sugary fruit vs. fruit juice) with caramel malt. A bit too sweet for me. It’s not very hoppy either, an unusual IPA. It just wasn’t for me. 7/4/6/3/14 [3.4/5]

Pours a deep copper with a huge four-finger head of pillowy off-white foam. Immediate and strong aroma of earth and yeast. Additional nose of sweet roasted and caramel malts. Very fine carbonation is paired with an immediate hit of hoppy, piney bitterness over the tongue. A second taste reveals more bitterness, slightly astringent, and some malt. Not overly floral or citrusy to my palate. Somewhat lingering and slightly astringent aftertaste finish things off.

Draught at C’est What, Toronto
Amber color, small head. Light aroma of caramel. Some caramel flavor, the hopping is partially resiny; it seems to be unfresh.

punkska101 (806) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2012
275 ml bottle from lcbo A: earthy, citrusy, caramel, just a touch of roastiness in the finish. App: clear dark copper with small white head. T/p: Med body finish is of medium long duration. moderate carbonation. O: A little too heavy on specialty malts even for an English Ipa. Not bitter enough close to balance

dfearnley (760) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
275mL bottle wine glass Piney and grapefruit aromas with a little apricot and alcohol. It's a clear deep amber with a small head but nice lacing. Taste is surpisingly fruity and tangy up front and with a malty and hoppy end. Being an IPA, the hops win out to a pleasant astringent bitterness.

Great taste, and a smoother finish than other stronger IPAs. Very highly recommended!!
