UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle via trade with Andrew - thanks! Slightly hazy orange pour with a soapy white head. Aroma is pine resin and mild caramel malt. Little bit of citrus also creeps in on the taste. The finish could be a little bit more balanced but it’s far from being super bitter. Quite enjoyable.

Pours dark gold-orange with a brownish tinge, soapy clingy head. Fruity but restrained hop scent - citrus and pine, strong malt presence. Taste is lemon, grapefruit juice in the start, big bitter hop in the finish - still citrusy but a touch medicinal. Cracker and caramel malt body. Balance is slightly imperfect, but this is still a very good IPA.

Dark gold and clear, this IPA has hints of orange, orange peel, apricot, honey and nutmeg. Hints of metallic notes and some grassy undertones. It has medium malt, high hops and a medium full body which is likely the result of its dry-hopping. It's chewy and slightly bitter but quite refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank w Matt on first day in Toronto at E11even. Good amount of resin bitterness, some crisp lightly peppery malt, body is medium and quite bitter. Faint stone fruit and fine frothiness. Decent and v drinkable.

Part of a Summer Mixer pack. First of all, I do not particularly enjoy IPA’s, so my rating should be taken that way. Second, I love this brewery. Smells of a good dose of hops. Pours a dark gold. Head dissolves quick. Taste is not as bitter as other IPA’s, but past the point in which I can enjoy it. The Detour IPA is about my limit. Good carbonation, but awful aftertaste. Overall I got exactly what I thought. I have no doubt this is a quality beer, just not my kind of beer. MB The Beer Bear On

Can. A golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of citrus fruits, hops, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, citrus fruit, caramel, and malt, leading to a bitter finish

Is a hard one to review, because its so different and its hard to tell if thats the bar, brewery or beer store. When its good its pretty good, balanced and hoppy - but to often its malty and aged and kind of lacking oomph. Could be the bars, the draught lines etc - but happens a lot, so hard to say. Still worth trying when you see it, maybe taste a friends first ;) because when its on its worth it.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
Cloudy amber/bright orange color with powerful amount of subtle activity. Frothy beige half a finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with very good legs. Aromas of tropical fruits and caramel. Flavors of pine, orange, coriander, fresh floral and herbal spices. Caramel biscuit feel with a grassy end. Nice balance with a good dose of sugar while having a strong sharpness but not overly spicy. Smooth creamy medium body with the perfect amount of zesty carbonation. Well intensified medium strength finish, ending with a tongue numbing citrus feel, dash of spicy hops, and a dry piney coat. Overall this is a good craft offering tasty flavors and a very fresh feel. Good accessibility being a little faint and low intensity.

Bottle ENJOY BEFORE 01 JUN 2016. Nose is malty and dulled pine and dough, spice. Pours hazy golden with a short soapy beige head. Taste sweet matched up against medium bitterness, citrus; cleansing, relatively soft feel from the fullish body, malt is muddled but there’s still a little fruit and spice shining through. Doesn’t sparkle with flavor, but it’s fresher and livelier than I’ve made it sound. [2016.06.24: 3.1]
