Eructoblaster (2957) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
Bottle - 250ml. Pours a dark golden body with a thin white foamy head. Decent hoppy aroma with malty notes. Taste is well balanced but it could be more complex. Ends with a good bitter/herbal finish. Not bad.

kevinsenn (1033) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
275mL bottle from LCBO. Pours clear copper, with a slight green tinge if you hold thin parts up to the light. Nice hoppy aroma. Taste is quite bitter. Also some caramel and hops in there, but those are fairly light, and other than the bitterness this borders on watery. A drinkable IPA, but better local ones exist at a better price (SMASH Bomb comes to mind).

Clear light red pour with little head. No lacing, clear, sparkling even, minimal head with white foam. Reminds me of a black IPA. Not nearly enough hop for me to call this an IPA. A good beer to introduce people to IPAs with out scaring them away.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2011
Rated from memories of too many bottles and draft I was pretty excited about this one when it first showed up because it was the first real IPA to be pretty regularly available in Toronto bars/LCBO. It pours a dark amber shape, nice lacing, etc. Aroma is sweet malts, grassy hops...earthy, with a bit of the citrus/grapefruit/floral character that I love in North American IPAs. It’s nice. Flavour continues that with a medium bitterness and the sweetness of the malts balances well with the grassy hops. Quite well balanced...resiny. The body is heavier than west coast style IPAs...this isn’t one of those. I find it hard to drink many of these in a session. It’s got a nice strong bitterness in the finish. Good stuff.

Dipso123 (3) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2011 does not count
Nice clean well made beer. Balance of hop n malt is well done. However, IMO as a PNW native this is more of an amber than an IPA (let alone a west coast IPA) - way too dark and not hoppy enough for an WC IPA. A very good mis-named beer.

Pretty solid IPA. Nice malt and hop balance, works great. I’d definitely have this one again.

Listigovers (292) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2011
Smells foresty, plenty of hop resin. Dark amber with a thin offwhite head, looks pretty normal for a darker IPA. Taste is a good balance between hops and malt, gets more bitter as the taste continues. Dry aftertaste, moderately long lasting finish. A heavier bodied IPA, good for winter or fall drinking! Very Canadian.

12 oz. bottle from sammy. Pours a clear light brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has mild fruits, bready malts, a hint of herbal hops and caramel. The flavor has bready/biscuity malts, mild bitterness with a a hint of fruit and herbal hops. OK.

Draught at C’est What?, Toronto, ON.
Dark amber colour with small white head. Aroma: Mild fruity hops, no bitterness to mention. Flavour: Fruity hops, dark maltiness and mild bitterness. Short bitter fruity aftertaste.

fullers (251) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2011
Bottle LCBO. Very pleasant appearance, reddish brown with full, lasting off-white head. Rich aroma malts, citrus fruits. Full bodied, rich taste, pleasant mouth feel. Familiar IPA taste though less bitingly bitter than some. One of the better beers in this stylr that I have tasted to date.
