COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This locally handcrafted ale is unfiltered and unpasteurized to enhance its character It is brewed with the finest Canadian Barley, hops, pure water and our signature yeast. Because this beer is naturally carbonated, it may have a light dusting of yeast at the bottom. Pour it slowly to leave the yeast in the bottle, or pour it in, it tastes great!

Tap. Pale looking with a small head. Aromas of grapefruit and pine. Very nice. Taste is slightly bitter, some grapefruit and maybe tangerine. Really not much to it, I was expecting a punch of hops.

05-Aug-10 (341-ml bottle: Gift from SDbruboy, thanks Cliff!) Aromas of tropical fruits, grapefruit, and grass create a solid first impression for this IPA. Flavors of composted grass, dust, earth, tangerine, and grapefruit rind are pleasant. However, with a somewhat muted malt profile and unintegrated hop bitterness, the beer seems a bit hollow. Both the flavor and nose really take on strong vegetal notes after only a few minutes. Light medium in body with moderate carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. The body is hazy and pale golden in color, and is capped by nearly an inch of creamy, white foam that, as it slowly settles to a thin layer, deposits an elaborate web of intricate, patchy lace. Overall, a decent, though somewhat disjoint IPA that doesn’t destroy the taste buds with overwhelming bitterness.

blomster (229) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2010
Pale amber, slightly hazy. Great white head. Aroma of wet grass, a bit fruity. Tastes kind of like a modern lager. Low bitterness for the style. Taste has some yeasty fruitiness, orange, mandarines. Not unpleasant, quite drinkable actually, but not a great IPA.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2010
341 ml bottle from private order. Pours amber-to-light copper in colour. Medium head, good retention and lacing. Aroma is moderately hoppy, taste is a nice balance of sweet caramel malt at the start, with a nice solid earthy hop finish. Very good IPA!

MaltOMeal (1090) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2010
bottle thanks to zinister. Pours a clear amber with a white head. Nose is very much oranges. Taste is a bit off, like artificial fruit flavoring, but not bad. Mouthfeel is very fizzy carbonation and some bitterness.

DerWeg (1431) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2010
Creamy carbonation and head, solid orange color, big citrus bose, lots of orange citrus flavors, and grapefruit and lemon-zest bitterness. Some candy-citrus fruit flavors, late finish is grassy-dry, feel is creamy, medium full and perfect. What took you so long?????

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2010
341ml bottle from a private order. Nice amber, and great head retention. Aroma of hops, and some sweetness. Flavour doesn’t have as much hop bitterness as the aroma suggests, but a nice drinkable beer all the same.

Thanks to Blankboy. Appearance: golden orange, hazy, snow white head, lots of visible carbonation. Aroma: super mango, strawberry, pineapple, a little yeast and some mild orange. Flavour: lots of initial carbonation, malt, pine, deliciously refreshing orange with a long bitter finish. Lovely.
