Amber-ish liquid topped by a small ring of foam. Aroma is loaded with floral/herbal notes (yay dryhop!) that preludes a nice and bitter IPA. Taste is just right and balanced a bit toward hops, and I’m not one to complain about that. Overall a really solid offering by Muskoka that I’ll come to again for sure!

A nice Aroma very sweet almost like a gin smell. Taste very much like a grapefruit with a bitter hoppy taste to end. Don’t mind it not a big IPA drinker but I would have no problem suggesting this one to IPA drinkers.

Great session IPA. pours a rather golden in the body with a thick off white head. the nose has big resinous notes with citrus bomb notes and light malts. The flavor has a hint of cereal malts and a big grapefruit hop, citrus hops throughout and mild resins. A medium body and no carbonation. Overall, a fantastic session IPA!

Pours a golden almost clear color. Lots of grapefruit on the nose and taste is same with lots of fruity grapefruit notes, bitterness of the hops lingers. At 6% goes down nice. Good beer.

Le liquide est blond-doré et voilé, présentement une belle mousse qui se dissipe rapidement, tout en laissant une dentelle baveuse. Le zeste de citron et le houblon forment un duo explosif d’odeur. Ça fait lever un sourcil juste en se plaçant le nez au-dessus de la concoction. Des conifères résineux se joignent aux arômes. Une texture huileuse est perceptible et l’arrière-goût semble s’éterniser tout doucement en amertume.(291-040812)

En fût au Beer Bistro. Une bière à la robe dorée et sa mousse qui se transforme rapidement en anneau. Un nez de fruits tropicaux qui propulsent les malts aux oubliettes. Des saveurs de pamplemousse et d’orange avec des touches d’épinettes. Des malts qui sont encore et heureusement représentés par des grains pâles qui ne sont jamais sucrés. Un corps gonflé par les saveurs et modérément touché par les bulles. Une texture finement huileuse. Une finale parfumée et modérément amère. Vraiment appréciable.

Me and my girlfriend did this rate together. pours golden/straw (very light for an IPA in Canada). Aroma is hoppy, spicy a touch of caramel with a hint of apricot. Taste is very bitter up front with a mild change to sweetness with apricot flavours present. not much of a aftertaste. the beer has a full body with a mild amount of carbonation (my gf thinks a fair amount of carbonation) There is no oiliness or unami that makes this beer curve the appetite. In my opinion a very very bitter pale ale which lacks the complexity to make it a great india pale ale.... in my gf mind a drinkable IPA for once (although she would only have one maybe two in a night). Available up at my cottage, and a good product to promote the style to more of ontario’s population. not my favourite however.

Canette de 500 ml. Arômes de houblon plutôt résineux et portant sur le pamplemousse. Robe dorée et limpide, légère dentelle et effervescence assez faible. En bouche, le houblon est bien aromatique et développe surtout des notes de pamplemousse et de conifère. Le malt présente des saveurs franches de grains, mais demeure en retrait et pas trop sucré. Finale montrant une amertume d’intensité moyenne. Une belle IPA et une agréable surprise.

355ml bottle pours a golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles slowly and leaves little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with mild citrus and grass. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a moderate hop bitterness that finishes clean. Light to medium body with adequate carbonation. A pretty decent IPA with a nice balance of flavours, but not enough punch from the hops.
