4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great IPA from a solid Ontario brewery. This years batch seems even better than last years. A very hoppy beer that’s a dark orange/amber colour. It’s a big IPA, a strong, full body with enough of a malty base to tie down hoppiness. A great beer at a great price too!

Golden cloudy body with off white head. Sweet hop aroma with light citrus hints. The lingering bitters that drape the sides of my tongue are pleasant. Great body. A great general IPA to get in the southern Ontario region.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A textbook example of the looks of an IPA with a mildly hazy body and a creamy, well enduring white head. Nose has notes of apricots, resin, caramel and citrus fruits. Taste is mildly sweet with a nice, lingering bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium creamy carbonation and rich palate. Nice and balanced heavier IPA.

Tasting with Ilya. 473ml bottle (thx, Peter!). Aroma is slightly sweet, with tropical fruits and some piney hops. Taste is piney bitterness. Same aftertaste. Good one.

Pours a translucent gold, head stays for duration of drink. Bright aroma of pine, tropical fruit. Taste of mango, peach, toasty malts, slight earth, and BIG hop bitterness; impressively, the bitter bomb doesn’t disrupt the sweet backbone. While I find the Naughty Neighbour slightly more approachable, this is also an impressive brew.

Pours dark copper with a foamy white head that laces the glass. Aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit and tropical fruit. Good bitter sweet taste with a dry finish. These guys know what they’re doing, really enjoyable.

Can into glass. Very nice aroma that seems sweeter than other IPAs. Pours a very cloudy amber. Medium to heavy bitter. Medium bodied with a sticky texture. An interesting IPA that is definitely on the hoppy side.

Can. Orange-brown pour, with foamy head. Lots of hoppy notes in the nose, which goes on into the taste and finish quite prominently, preventing the alcohol from sticking out. Picked up some citrus notes too, but largely a hop-only show, which isn’t an issue (I love my IPAs), but prevents it from being a true, nuanced standout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Ottawa LCBO at parents’. Honey orange pour with white lacy head. Aroma is booze, butterscotch, banana, deep resinous hops. Taste is similar - deep pine resin bitterness, sweet hot booziness, banana and caramel. Dry bubbly finish with lasting bitter boozy warmth. Really good big resinous IPA - but more caramel than a Stone-type resin, halfway between that and a more Mikkeller-type IPA.
