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!

blomster (284) - 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 (1092) - 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 (1570) - 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.

garthicus (2840) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 10, 2010
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.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 8, 2010
Single bottle purchased in Revelstoke, BC...drank from the bottle. Nose: Dust - barnyard, faint hop, sour nut. Taste: Again medium sour....yeast? Hops that mingle with rye bread and a tight punch of dry bran. Really expected more from this. Perhaps the bottle was old.

JoeZasada (300) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle, ’hop-circle’ version. Pours a light amber with a thick white head that lasts. Aroma of hops - pine, citrus. Tastes very hoppy... moderate bitterness, lots of citrus and pine flavours, probably some dry hopping as well. Moderate malt body, slightly sweet. Finishes with a good hop bitterness, notes of citrus and pine. Very good!

pootzboy (1677) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2010
Bottle from trade: Pours a light copper hazed ale in the glass. Great sticky cap lasts and laces the glass. Aromas of musty grapefruit and raisin bread. Not overly complex but a boilerplate APA, Rich malting and decent cascade hopping give fair balance and a long bitter finish. Not outstanding but very good as west coast IPAs go.
