pintbypint (2648) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2012
473ml can from wilco. Golden pour, lightly hazy. Big white crown of clingy foam on top, frothy and rocky, generous lace. Big citrus nose, pine, oranges, pineapples, very fresh. Big sharp hop flavour shows pine, grapefruit and orange notes. Light malt sweetness beneath, faint fruity character deep in there. Long bitter finish with grapefruit and a bit of pine lingering. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel with relaxed carbonation. A solid IPA with good visuals, big drinkability, and nice hop character and bitterness.

Good, but underwhelming. Had heard that this was amazing, and yes, it is nice and hoppy, but lacks proper balance. Perhaps fro me it just didn’t live up to the hype. All in all it is a good beer, but would not be showcased in my top local favourites.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
473ml can, sampled at 9.1 celcius. Modest head, light gold body with small carbonation bubbles. Sweet hops aroma, fresh and sugary. Flavour is standard IPA with a slight dry lager finish. Balanced and average, decent, not exceptional, nor complex.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Draft at the ship in Hamilton. Amber, with a thick, luscious lasting head and gorgeous lace. Bright and assertive hop aroma is leafy, herbal, and kind. On second pint, the mushroom character emerges pleasantly. The palate leaves lots of hops on the tongue, high alpha but nutty and scrumptious. Flavors are sturdy, with big body and great toasty malt backbone that never becomes cloying. Impressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

northropfrye (2247) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 22, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 More golden yellow in colour than most IPAs. Vibrant pine aroma. Taste of bitter hops, some honey. A decent IPA.

oakbluff (414) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 20, 2012
12 ounce bottle- hopefully reasonably fresh as lord knows where the mlcc gets their beer from and how long its sat somewhere. Appearance- pale straw, one of the lighter Ontario IPA’s I’ve come across. Nice pillowy white head and sticky lacing. Nose- fresh cut lawn, pineapple and melon. Taste- nice suprise, pine and white grapefruit rind with a cookie dough malt backing. Nice stuff, only complaint is the mouthfeel is a little too creamy and lower in carbonation than my preference in an IPA.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2012
473ml can thanks to grub.
Appearance : Slightly hazy yellow with small white head. Some lacing.
Aroma : Great fruity notes with light resinous and piny notes. Nice floral notes as well.Light malt.
Taste : Fruity and resinous. Finish is rather resinous and piny. Light floral notes. Light malt. Nice bitterness. No trace of alcohol. Slightly sticky on finish. Quite crisp.
Palate : Soft carbonation. Quite soft actually. Nice but maybe a tad too soft.
Overall : Great session IPA. Nice fruity and floral notes. Nice bitter backbone. Nice malt as well. Well balanced and quite drinkable. Really well made and this is a first for Muskoka in my experience. Nothing fancy but just very well made and quite tasty.

sgallant (49) - USA - MAY 13, 2012
Cloudy yellow pour with thick white head. Floral and citrus aroma. Not a smooth beer, but in this rare case, it was a good thing. Felt like I was eating the IPA rather than drinking, which for IPA lovers is a great thing. Flavor stayed with me for awhile. Goes very well with bread or salty foods

shaynsawchuk (507) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2012
473 mL can. Poured a pale gold, nice and clear. Thick white head with nice lacing. Pine, rosemary and juicy grapefruit on the nose, very forest like. Sweet, but well balanced with a slight sourness and a whack of bitter hops. A whole variety of citrus, tangerine and pomelo, honey and beeswax. Lanolin mouth feel, typical of North American IPA’s. Good stuff!

bunget (561) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2012
355ml bottle. Deep yellow-orange body, medium creamy head with a yellowish shade, decent retention, beautiful lacing. Aroma is yeasty fresh, orange peel, coriander, wormwood, grapes, floral spiciness, pine, and a little sweetness. Taste is a lot of bitterness, grapefruit, generous amount of Centennial and Chinook hops that gives a piney touch, spices, wormwood. Tom was definitely mad when he made this fine craft. Almost no alcohol feeling. It’ll be excellent with some cheese. By far the best Muskoka has offered so far.
