A generously hopped IPA, balanced by a diabolical blend of rich specialty malts and pure mountain water. A wicked ale that leaves you lusting for more!

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2010
650ml bottle. 6.0% ABV. Pours clear orange amber with nice off white head and lacing. Rich caramel malt aromas with distinct piney and citrus aromas. Light body with medium carbonation and a nice balanced bitterness. Flavours though not too complex with a touch of vegetable - caramel malts, a silk mouthfeel, nice piney and citrusy hop flavours plus a nice bitter finish make for an appreciable IPA.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - NOV 7, 2010
It’s good. Pours a proper hazy orange colour with a short lived white head. The aroma is deep, complex, and hard to pin down, theres the usual hops, and hop related aroma’s, maybe a little sweetness, honey, but I smell other things to, things strange and unusual to me in hoppy beers that I just can’t seem to put my finger on...strange. The flavor is good, hops all the way through, some balancing from the malts, but this is beer is mainly about grapefruit, resiney hop goodness. Finishes with orange rind and a strange malt related sweetness, it’s good. All and all a very solid brew.

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle. Pours orange/amber with a small head. Aromas of rich malts and bitter citrus hops. Some caramel. The aroma is far more potent than the taste. Weak hops lead the flavors. Some malt balance but very weak. Hints of bitter citrus. Palate weak and fairly watery. No body. Very disappointing given the initial aromas.

Bottle samples from Cratez via the Lick Bo’. Thanks Mike. Deep cloudy copper with a tight bubbled off white foamy cap. Aromas here were caramel malty but also quite hoppy, with C-hop pine,citrus, and fruity malts adding mango , LYKEE, straaaawwwwberry. This beer tasted not quite as hoppy as the nose would have had me believe. Still good though. Solid toffee malt profile with subtle citric hops and pithy bitterness, add a bit of pine and mango for good measure. Almost seemingly an EPA of sorts, but with American style hopping, WELL DONE! Thanks for sharing Mike.

650mL bomber from the Likhbow. Pours a nice copper with a medium beige head. Aroma is really solid, resiny hops with a good toffee biscuit malt backbone. Flavour hits right away with some nice juicy hops, puckering bite followed by really tasty toasted biscuit malts. Delicious lingering west coastish hop flavour. Blends really well. Body is just kind of lightish, but nothing too tragic. Nice to see some BC stuff make it into Onterrible. Would be really nice to see more *hint*hint*LCBO*. Satisfying session IPA.

Pours light amber with some head. Most of the taste is up front as the finish is a little watery. Good IPA.

probstblueribbon (3053) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2010
Bomber from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear orange-amber with a decent light-tan foam. Aroma: Great grapefruit and pine, quite American with good crunchy caramel malt as support, berries, a little burnt sugar, dark rye bread crust. Palate: Medium body, elegant effervescence. Flav.: A nice mixture of strawberries and grapefruit, marmalade and berry jam, some pine/resin, with fairly good caramel malt backing; lightly sweet with decent bitterness and a pleasant fruity orange malt finish.

There is nothing nasty about this habit.

Spab (2559) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2010
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark amber/copper with small off-white head. Aroma has big caramel malt and citric/floral hopping. Taste is quite hoppy, somewhat earthy with solid caramel malt. Moderate bitterness in finish. Simple but pleasant and drinkable IPA.

DerWeg (1524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2010
Coppery-gold color is limpid, head of white fine foam, small. Aroma and tastes bestow both classic noble and citra hops, quite delicious. I actually taste some candy lemon. Softly grassy, but rounded hops. Expect a shocking number of Ontario ratings... and a gushing of appreciation for nods to the American styling. Very good!
