Scent of hops, pine, and citrus. Hazy gold colour. Flavour of orange peel, lemon, and hops. Mild bitterness with medium body. Very drinkable! A nice change from the abrasiveness of other IPA’s.

I have been looking harder and harder at ’session IPA’s as of late, and I am finding myself drawn to the style. I was somewhat unsure about the Muskoka Detour at first, given the floaties at the bottom, but once I had a taste, I leapt right into the case. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a lacy head, great aroma of resiny hops without being a slapped-in-the-ace-with-a-pine-branch feel. Taste is great citrusy bitterness, well-balanced with just enough malt to really shine. This is a top-end beer.

I wish PEI liquor stores carried this great beer, because I would definitely make this a regular purchase. It poured a hazy straw colour with a little frothy head. Aroma was of floral hops, citrus, and fresh cut grass. It tastes of juicy tropical hops, citrus, and grass with light caramel and pale malts balancing it so well. Had a medium body with low carbonation and a very refreshing light bitterness near the end. This brew lives up to its style.

Pours a hazy golden straw color with a thick moussy white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, light pine and floral hops with some malt sweetness. Taste is pale malts, citrus hops, grapefruit and floral hops with a light and crisp bitterness. Clean and refreshing beer that’s easy to drink and very enjoyable.

Wow. I was not expecting to care for this brew too much as I thought it would be just another Session IPA, the downscaled-in-every-way cousin. Looks great right out of the bottle, a light golden straw haze with a thin white head. Lots of tropical juicy fruit and citrus and floral hops present in the aroma but very smooth and not biting. Some honey as well. Such a smooth mouthfeel, mid-light carbonation and a nice lingering aftertaste of balanced bitter and sweet. What a great deck-rockin’ brew!

Bottle from LCBO. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is grassy, piney with a little lemon. Nice. Light body, medium carbonation. Light maltiness, lemon, light pine, white bread, orange... Crisp and refreshing. Nice.

Canmoore (242) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours a cloudy gold, with a medium fizzy head. Aroma includes notes of citrus, pine, and some light malt. Tasting notes include citrus, cracker malts, and a decent resinous bitter finish. This is one of the better session IPA"s I have tried. Muskoka delivers a great beer once again!

Actually pretty impressed by this. Great summer beer. Enough flavour to keep you interested but light enough that you can drink all afternoon.

Brilliant gold. Fine, sticky white head. Aromas of citrus and tropical fruit. Mild pine. Low bready malt aroma. Moderate hop flavor, citrus, orange, grapefruit, light pineapple and pine notes. Malt is mild cracker and bread. Medium carbonation and moderate bitterness provide a crisp finish. A nice drinking beer.

Light tan, slightly mushroomy slight peach nose. Light body, tropical papaya and pineapple notes. Mellow pale malts. Light ISA but not bad.
