pushkinwow (1996) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2012
Bottle. Mahogany with a creamy tan head. LIght fruit, resin hops with a nice malt backbone, nicely balanced, somewhat muted and light caramel. Slightly bitter, smooth, moderate carbonation and mild body, ends with a nice fruity bitterness and a light dryness on the palate. Quite pleasant.

Traditonal IPA. Beer is easily enjoyed but nothing to remember. Probably the best beer offered by Dugganís. Light to amber in colour. Almost no head. A little hoppy, with bitterness appropriate for an IPA.

PatIrish (168) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
On tap, pours a dark amber with a soft off white head. Aroma is malty, with some light floral and citrus hops. Has a very robust malt flavour on the palate, not very bitter. Okay IPA.

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2012
On tap at Caplanskyís Deli. Dark amber pour, fleeting off white head. Aroma is toasty and toffee malt, citrus and floral. This doesnít really come together and I canít decide what it is. Pretty heavy malt for an IPA. Hop character gets kind of hidden. Flavours donít seem to mix well.

mansquito (3346) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2012
LCBO, six-pack of 275ml bottles ($11.35): Pours a copper like color with a big enough head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, but nothing extreme. Definitely more of a mild IPA. Nice malt backbone, but this is also lighter bodied than many IPAs I have had. Fairly easy to drink overall. High enough ABV to be a proper IPA. Well-balanced throughout. Not the best Canadian IPA Iíve had, but still perfectly nice.

Metalchopz (2261) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2012
Purchased a 6-pack of this at the LCBO, in 275ml bottles. Pours a clean copper colour with an off-white creamy-froth head that has a decent stay and some nice thick lacing. Hoppy nose with hints of caramel malts. Medium-bodied and well-brewed between good wetness and a little dryness. The taste is hoppy as well, but not too bitter, with some grain showing in the aftertaste. An easy-drinking APA.

Dogbrick (7952) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Sample at the Strange Brew Tasting on 02/18/2012. Pours a dark amber color with a medium thin off-white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is equally hoppy and malty. Medium body with a fruity hops character with sweet malt behind it. The finish is citrusy with a short mildly hoppy aftertaste. Worth the inevitable lawsuit? Slightly above average overall.

JaBier (4854) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Can/bottle (donít quite remember) shared by a friend. Clear amber pour with a thick beige head. Malty aroma with a bit of hop. Malty flavor up front, then slight citrus before a grassy hop finish.

DeanF (1705) - Nunavut, CANADA - FEB 4, 2012
Okay copper body with some modest head. Soft aroma of bad B.O. and some hops thrown in. Flavour is a decent 45-minute hop formula with a bit of malt. Okay balance, okay IPA. Just okay. Eh?

solidfunk (3886) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Not bad. Strong hops smell, medium body. Overall an average IPA - decently bitter but not a whole lot of character. Has a nice amber colour and head retentionís not bad. Hoppy but not super bitter.
