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!

Can thanks to dabeerbuddha @ BA, many thanks man! Pours a very clear golden with a medium frothy white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of oranges and other hop oils. Really pleasing. Taste is more juicy oranges and moderately bitter. Long lasting bitter finish. Light supporting malt base. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel a bit juicy. A really good IPA I didn’t expect to like as much as I do!

Well balanced hoppy IPA. Citrus nose with a pine aftertaste, nice full malt and good water base. Excellent IPA.

DRaft. This is a pretty good ipa, citrus and pine notes, fairly dry, some fruitiness. Good stuff.

bottle. Golden with one finger head. Aboverage IPA. Medium body, light sweetness. Citrus hops. Crisp hops, well constructed IPA, but slightly generic.

Probably the best Canadian IPA that I have tried! Totally unfiltered which is extra points with me. Flavor leans grapefruit...and sticks in the aftertaste...and is not swamped by brute bitterness.

OK, from a bottle I wonder if this is just another ubiquitous IPA. Some sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Smells like strong IPA, what else? It looks like IPA, and hey of it looks, tastes and smells like IPA, what else could it be, a macro lager? No way, IPA is so much more macrotized than pale lager, hehehheh. Yea, another IPA trying to be an illegal imperial IPA immigrant without penetrating the border.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/10/2015. Pours slight hazy orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from sticky bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and slightly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Golden beer out of the tap with a thin white head. Big tropical fruit, citrus and pine nose. This is a hop dominant ipa with lots of sweet candied orange peel, red grapefruit, pineapple and apricot jam flavors. A strong pine bitterness joins in the finish. There is plenty of malts to support all those hops. A pleasant hoppy surprise.
