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!

Metalchopz (2665) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2012
This Canadian IPA from the LCBO pours a deep amber colour with a nice off-white head that remains pretty good and creates a bit of lace. Fresh Cascade hop nose with the grapefruit notes being nicely balanced with a little sweetness from the caramel malts. After breathing a while, the aromas tend to stick out as oranges (so maybe Amarillo are also in there). Wet mouthfeel, making this one easier to consume than dry ones (IPA). Surprisingly not as bitter as expected. The grain really comes through, blending well with citrus. This is pretty much the best middle of the road IPA that I have had. Good drinkability and beautiful hop, without being a hop bomb.

kevinsenn (1561) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2012
Bomber from LCBO. Pours clear dark amber with a thin head. Aroma of orange, peach, cherry, and slight caramel. Taste is reasonably balanced, reasonably tasty, but nothing extraordinary. Moderately bitter finish. Thin-bodied.

Very happily surprised. Fresh hoppy aroma was appealing right from the pour. Taste is smooth with mild bitter.

Bottle 650 ml
Aroma: wow , quiet American in approach, pine , spruce with slight citrus and caramel malts. Impressed.8- Look:clear amber with light off white cap.
Taste / palate etc.: medium full bodied. Reminds me of older Stone beers. Simple but well done malty sweet caramel hinted base on good citrusy piney feel. Carbonation medium , fairly soft. Bitter sides. This is very drinkable.

duckdown (82) - GTA, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2012
A solid IPA, generously hoppy. Dark amber in color with a cream colored head, heavy lacing on my glass. Tastes of citrus and hops, a very very solid beer but definitely not as good as some.

Hungarian_G (90) - - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a deep amber with a super thick, foamy white head that recedes rapidly, leaving thick lacing. Aroma is actually quite light, with biscuity and earthy notes and malt sweetness; little hops present. Medium carbonation carries the brew nicely. Taste is of astringent bitterness, some citrus and mild sweetness without much in the way of floral hoppiness. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Good, but not great.

Narnad (1507) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Pours a clean copper color with tall, cream colored head that has good staying power. Aroma has an aggressive hoppiness and appears to be dry hopped a ton. Strong grapefruit notes come in first, mild orange, some light grassy notes, very light toasted malt but the hops come through very nicely. Flavor of the brew has a definitive grapefruit and orange coupling with light grassy middle and a solid toasted and caramel malt sweetness at the finish. The malt is very well balanced with the hop and adds a great deal of depth to the flavor at the very end. Body is modest but has a slight crispness to it. Slightly acidic as well which aids in the overall citric acid fruitiness present in the brew. Overall a very well done beer. The flavors and aromas are balanced which allows each of the flavors to stand out but compliment each other at the same time.

TheJester (2218) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2012
650 mL bottle. Pours very nicely - an attractive copper-brown with a nice beige head. The nose suggests dryhopping - leans toward the resiny end of the spectrum. The flavour is disappointingly small - not bad, just a little thin on hop flavour and bitterness. I’d buy more if it came in smaller bottles or cans. Bombers are so awkward.

Lacing is alright, big head in the beginning. Dark amber colour. Smells hoppy with some citrus and quite a lot of malt musk. Not a huge palate, but alright. Final aftertaste leaves a little bit of unpleasant astringency, but that’s really the only major flaw. Bottle.
