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.

ILduce (257) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2016
Can from summer sampler LCBO : Pale amber ale with off-white head. Lively carbonation. Floral/citrus bouquet with pine and hops. Taste is similar. Light body with a nice dry finish, but mild for the style. Very simple, very sessionable, very good.

berkshirejohn (6065) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2016
341ml bottle from NBLC in Alma, NB. A bright pale amber pour with a ring of white head; lemony citrus aroma; a sharp grapefruit taste; and a smooth finish with some tropical fruit.

Looks like a lager. Limited aroma in the first place. Tastes like IPA, yet only with the slight hint of it. (I can tell from the bitterness) At least comparing to the basic set of Brewdog IPAs, Muskoka Detour can not be rated as a decent-taste IPA.

Holdwine (1179) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Relaxed Brit style IPA. Not too hoppy, but enough piney notes to assert itself. At 4.3, very drinkable and I can see a few going down during a ballgame.

Muskoka Detour APA Can from the LCBO in Ottawa. A pale gold with a soft head of foam. Very lights lots aroma with a sweet floral hop bouquet. The taste is sweet, whiskey, floral, fruity and hops with a bit of dryness. Decent everyday brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Docavey (64) - Lehigh Acres, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Had this in a 473 ML tall boy in Aurora. I'm pretty sure that I had it before in Muskoka. It is a seasonable IPA at 4.3% ABV but well hopped with some malt and mild sweetness. Very enjoyable on a hot Canadian afternoon. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bierdimpfe (490) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
Hazy straw/golden color with a good amount of activity. Creamy frothy white 1 finger head, lasting around 10-15 minutes, with strong legs. Aromas of fruity tropical fruits, caramel, and a floral bouquet (faint a little). Flavors of zesty citrus including lemon, lime, orange, and with some hints of peach, caramel, roasted grains, and floral/herbal spices. Powerful zesty lemon taste. Well balanced sweetness and sharpness. Slick full body with prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish, ending with a slightly dry feel of fruity hops, roasted malt, and heavy sour zesty spices, although still ends pretty clean and not lingering. Overall this is a good craft offering decent flavors that are well balanced, while the lemon is the real star here. Acceptable freshness for the style with a slightly flat feel. A little strong of the spices but still nicely sharp and crispy like drinking a lemonade. Good session IPA in a hot summer day.
