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!

Nice strong piney/citrus aroma on this one. The pine is the predominant note here. Fairly clear with a golden color, long lasting white head. Taste is very much representative of the nose, pine comes through right away, but some oniony and grapefruit notes come through as well. A bit of biscuity malt. Taste is very short-lived, a watery aftertaste and bitterness on the palate is the only thing that lingers very shortly after a sip. Medium bodied. A bit unbalanced but a pretty good and assertive IPA.

ENG: 355ml can from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku. Light-golden to straw color, big, tan head and some lacing. Floral aromas with citrus notes. A bit skunky. Tastes fruity, floral, grassy, citrusy, with huge piney hoppy bitter. Bitter, piney, tarty aftertaste. Medium carbonation and low to medium body. Overall very drinkable, refreshing, hoppy IPA.

PL: Puszka 355ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Barwa jasno-złocista, nieco słomkowa, ogromna, jasna piana i nieco lejsingu. Aromaty kwiatowe, cytrusowe. Nieco skunksowe. W smaku owocowe, kwiatowe, trawiaste, cytrusowe, z ogromną sosnowo-chmielową goryczką. W posmaku goryczka, sosna, nieco cierpkie. Średnie nasycenie, niskie do średniego odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując bardzo pijalna, orzeźwiająca, mocno chmielowa IPA.

I thought this was a really nice IPA. Pours a Nice peach colour. Nice dank aromas. Notes of mango and papaya as well. Flavours are juicy and fruity before settling into a nice lasting bitterness that tastes very much like grapefruit. Very good.

sulawang (687) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2015
Visual: Pours golden amber with suspended sediment, a small dissipating head, several small bubble steady streams. Nose: faint pine hopped malts, clean green (lvl-3)-pungency Attack: immediate bitter hops Mid-palate: (lvl-3)-sweetness, fizzy-crisp bite, (MAIN) piney hops, caramel malts, grassy, bitter peel Finish: very DRY, biting hopped bitterness. Summary: A very biting bitter hopped IPA with all pine and zero citrus. Not really my type of IPA, too sharp.

Bottle. Pours a clear straw color with a think foamy head. Aroma a bit light, but flavor of citrus and pine. Nice bitter finish. Very easy to drink, almost session like. Decent IPA.

ljthiessen (616) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle. Golden amber colour, mostly clear with lots of tiny floating yeast, white head quickly dissipates. Aroma is zesty citrus and some light tropical fruit. Flavour is fairly bitter, citrus zest with some tropical fruit and grassy notes. A bitter but quite tasty IPA. A touch watery texture considering the ABV, but still lots of flavour.

Oldschool_Mike (140) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle into IPA. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour. Aroma is earthy pine and slight citrus. Taste is pretty much the same but with a little malt backbone. Pretty good IPA. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Eructoblaster (3248) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle - 341ml. Golden body with good carbonation and a thin, lasting, white creamy/foamy head. Sharp hoppy aroma with grapefruit and lemon hints. Its sharp, robust, hoppy taste carries citrusy and herbal notes. Ends with a long bitter finish. Enjoyable.
