Easily one of the ugliest pours I have ever seen. It is over-filtered to the point where it looks like completely filtered gold water. I could watch TV through this beer. No head to speak of. Aromas are a mixed bag, but there is some definite dirty sweat socks going on. The next layer down is cat pee. I think there are some fruity hops lurking at the bottom of the well. Crisp and clean palate. Flavours of tropical fruits, laying under a tongue-mashing mustiness. I wanted to like this one. I don’t.

Listigovers (423) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
Golden with a white head. Very tropical aroma, flavour is bitter hops, decent balance with english malts but not too heavy. Good aroma, decent IPA, doesn’t particularly stand out.

Alpha10 (412) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
2015/04/09 - Pours a clear, yellow-gold colour with a thin, white, soapy head that quickly reduces. Aroma is grain, biscuit, mild honey, tropical fruit, lychee, citrus fruits (grapefruit, orange), grass, pine and mildly catty. Taste follows nose; citrus (orange, grapefruit), honey, grain, lychee and pine with grassy and catty notes. Mouthfeel is medium with average to low carbonation and a crisp, bitter, drying finish. Pleasantly surprised. 500ml bottle. Clear, very orangey, golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma delivers the whole range of citrusy flavours, lemon, mandarine, orange, grapefruit, passion fruit, all juicy and zesty; additionally some gooseberry, biscuity malty background. Taste is crisp bitter and citrusy hoppy, passion fruit predominates the bunch of all the other ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blankboy (6426) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a clear deep golden-orange with an average size long-lasting frothy white head. Minimal lacing. Nice aroma, quite fruity and moderately hoppy (grassy and catty) along with a light vegetal note and bready malt. Flavour of grassy & catty hops and fruit along with some alcohol and a long moderate to big bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Not amazing but pretty good indeed.

GregClow (2951) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear and glowing golden-orange body with a small white cap. Aroma has nice notes of orange blossom honey, cut grass, bit of pineapple and lychee. Flavour is nicely balanced, light toffee up front, perky hop character following with notes of tangerine, tart raspberry, under-ripe mango, orange zest in the finish. Medium bodied with a nice crispness on the palate. Very good!

HippyHop (385) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Pour is clear pale straw with a persistent clean white cap. Nose is cereal and honey, apple, piney and grassy hops, faint citrus. Taste is a sweet, sugary pale malt with a great lingering bitter kick and finish. This based on a few stolen sips, but I’ll be picking some of this up for myself.

Boutip (5033) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Bottle: Poured a dark orangey color ale with a nice large pure white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of green grassy hops with some citrusy bitter notes. Taste is dominated by light grassy notes with some citrusy hops, some residual sugar and a bitter finale. Body is about average with good carbonation. Enjoyable but maybe a tad more bitter then I would have like.
