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.

Subliminal64 (81) - London, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Bought as part of a Muskoka Mixer Pack. Smells like an IPA, just not as potent. Pours a slightly cloudy gold colour. Head that lasts to the end. Taste is IPA, but the Hops are very mild. Similar to Bells Two Hearted, but a little stronger, and not quite as full flavour. Good amount of carbonation. Overall I was pleasently surprised. I don’t typically like Hoppy IPA’s, but this was very drinkable, and refreshing. Another grand slam by Muskoka brewery. WIll buy mixer pack again.

Papillon (391) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
473 mL Can. Murky gold body with a thin but tenacious head, clinging and leaving blotchy lace. Aroma of sweet light malts and mildly resiny hops, a hint of caramel. The flavor is a beautiful balance of light sweet malts and hops, an absolutely assertive beer taste with an aftertaste and linger of pink grapefruit and grapefruit rind. A juicy, thirst-quenching finish. Bonus points for the exceptional taste and finish. Will made the Detour to pick up a case or two for camp.

ChadPoole (102) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Pours cloudy gold with a small white head. Good hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and pine. Tastes of bitter hops, citrus fruits and grains. The Tastes seemed slightly muted,  with such a bold aroma I expected more. But still a decent beer.

Tranquillity (1697) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
Canned. Slightly hazy body, dark yellow with a big foamy head. The aroma is very fruity, peach and some berries. The taste is very refreshing and it has some spiciness and exotic flavors (pineapple?) to it. Not bad at all!

DSG (10542) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 31, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks troubles. Clear golden. Nice hoppy aroma with lots of citrus, some tropical fruits, and a bit of graininess. Flavor has mild sweetness, graininess, and bitterish citric hops. Light to medium-bodied.

Pours cloudy golden amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, peach and light mango, slightly floral. Taste is crisp and floral, slightly citrusy, with a mellow bitter finish. Light, smooth body with average carbonation.

One of my favourite session IPAS on the market. Floral yet not over bearing. Perfect dock beer!

AWS9 (604) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2015
Tap. Hazy orangey-yellow pour, with foamy white head. Nice, deep hop flavour. Citrus notes throughout. Mild bitterness that adds some needed kick, but isn’t so harsh as to ruin the "sessionability". Nice and simple hoppy IPA.
