Bottle. Aroma was bright citrusy hops, grapefuit, lemon, orange zest. Flavor was pleasantly hoppy with a good malt backbone. Lots going on in this beer. Super solid IPA. Worth checking out.

@Mondial de la Bičre 2012, Montreal - slightly hazy blond beer with a little foam left; a decent flowery hoppiness; a good malt body; slightly sticky and with a good bitterness; pretty dry and long bitter hoppy finish

Draught, Winking Judge. Light amber with a gentle sparkle. Decent head. Very earthy, mushroomy hop nose. Earthy with some slight caramelly character and crystal malt.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL can, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), pours a hazy golden with a big white head. Aroma of piney hops, slight citrus notes and a crackery malt backing that is well-pronounced. Flavour brings out citrusy and piney hops mainly, with a slight herbal quality, with a thin crackery malt backing simply for balance. Easy drinking and refreshing, though nothing overly impressive.

What a great looking, great smelling and great tasting beer. Lots of juicy citrus and peach aromas with some pine too. Sweet, sugary malts with juicy fruits up front. A sharp bitter finish. Just delicious stuff

Pint ordered at Brother’s Beer Bistro in Ottawa, Ontario on 06/05/2012. Colour: Medium-light yellow with generious white head. Nose: The hops play lead fiddle on this one showing grapefruit, tanins, old barn and herbs. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-heavy bitter, light sour. Lovely basket of Centenniel and Chinook. Citrus comes on late again with grapefruit and lime and there is a deep piney finish. Quite tasty!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.
