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.

RichardW (1496) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Tap Ritz Carlton Toronto. Tropical fruit aromas plenty of peach and melon with gooseberry late on. Soft subtle palate, a worthy imitation of something like Thornbridge Kipling

Bouteille 355 ml. Couleur jaune foncé, mousse blanche. Arôme de houblons frais. En bouche, céréales, houblons résineux, pêche. Légère amertume qui s’étend. Rafraîchissante et équilibré. Très bonne.

Eructoblaster (2983) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle - 341ml. Hazy golden body with a thin, fading, white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrusy and herbal hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, herbal, and citrusy notes. Ends with a good bitter/herbal finish. Enjoyable.

Rae723 (5) - Calgary, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014 does not count
Aroma is light, taste is lightly hopped and wheaty, palate is moderately carbonated and somewhat smooth with slight hoppy after taste across the back of the tongue. Overall pretty decent for a session ale

RCx240 (34) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Light, hazy orange. Smell is sweet maltiness, pine and citrus. Taste is sweet, malty, with a wave of floral hoppiness. Light bodied, well carbonated and very refreshing. Excellent session ale.

ametras (363) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2014
On tap at The Manx. Clear light orange with a thin frothy white head. Flavors are bread, biscuit, pine resin, tropical fruits and grapefruit with grassy and floral notes. Light body, moderate carbonation, slick texture. Easy drinking, refreshing, flavorful... good stuff!

jercraigs (7699) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2014
2014-07-25. Lightly hazy orange body, small white head. 3+ Aroma is sweetly fruity with sort of mango like fruit character and muted citrus. 7+ The flavour is moderately bitter throughout. Fruity, tangerine mango mix. Lingering pithy orange and something fruity I can’t nail down. Smooth average plus body has suitable carbonation. Nice stuff, we drank several pints of this over the weekend. On tap at Fern Resort, Orillia

Hammy78 (732) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy gold, frothy white head , thick clingy lace. Nose is sweet citrus hop. Tastes a little bitter and a touch malt, but rather thin.

Slepkov (36) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Utterly drinkable low-alc IPA with insane amounts of grapefruit and a nice amount of pine resin. Very well balanced with little bitterness and maltiness, but enough of both to give a decent body. I was NOT expecting to like this much, but it is currently among the best offerings in Canada. Congrats, Muskoka!

To the reviewer below me: the "floaties" at the bottom of your beer is usually yeast sediment which isn’t filtered out to give the beer more flavour etc etc. Anyway... trying a bottle at Taste of Edmonton shoddily poured into a plastic cup by the volunteer bartender. Head died right away but tons of tropical citrus flavours and I believe it is more wet than dry hopped which is also a plus. A good one!
