Alléchant profil houblonné dès le départ avec ses notes d’agrumes, mangues et de pins. En bouche c’est très frais, peu malté avec une bonne dose d’amertume légèrement ferreuse. Buvabilité sans bornes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Canada six-pack: Pours a rather light colour for an IPA, with a moderate white head. Aroma is citrus, but it has a strong malt backbone readily apparent there. Excellent hop profile in the taste. Not particularly bitter or extreme by any stretch, but very well crafted. There are no errors in this beer, just flavourful and easy drinking IPA. The fruitiness makes it a nice stand-out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2012 (355mL bottle from the LCBO) Served cool. Pours a clear pale gold with a thin, ephemeral white head. Quite substantial hops aromas - particularly tropical fruit (passion fruit sticks out), some citrus notes, grassy, crisp, mild grains. Taste is hop-forward, citrus notes dominate with some herbal notes, simple sweet malts with mild graininess give a little creaminess reminiscent of some tropical fruit to an otherwise crisp beer. Finish is fairly dry and bitter but not as strong as some IPAs. Quite quenching and acidic overall, relatively light body with moderate carbonation which could be lower. Nothing crazy here but a flavourful, refreshing and eminently drinkable IPA from a local brewery.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours orange/amber with a little white head. Nose of hop, cereal, pine, apricots and pineapple. A vivacious fun and adventurous IPA from an area that usually doesn’t like to play with this style. Muskoka Brewery has come a long way. Unexpectedly boozey, compared to some other local offerings. Resiny, acidic and aggressive. Totally unbalanced, but malts are not forgotten at all. It’s high time that something like this has quietly wandered in. Very Drinkable. Holds its own. Delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample. Dark gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, orange, herbs, and minerals. Solid crispy pale malt base in the mouth, backed by more herbal and citrusy hops. Chunky solid bitterness. Nothing over the top, but a really solid and Chinook heavy IPA. Definitely one of the best Ontario IPA’s I’ve tried/

Fairly dark cloudy gold with a white creamy lasting bubbly head. Zesty Lemon herbal hop smell. Tart tingle sharp citrus body, thin. Huge grapefruit hop bitterness and light caramel. Sour bitter dry finish. The freshly squeezed pink grapefruit feel. Refreshing with a lasting acidness and bitterness

A very zesty,citrusy offering.Beautiful golden colour. A promising brew
but lacking the malt backbone it needs and ultimately,unbalanced.
