An East Coast-style India Pale Ale that weaves intense hop bitterness and aroma throughout a blanket of malt background. This beer may change slightly from batch to batch as we explore the various interpretations of the style.

Luvystypotables (1234) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2015
A subdued aroma of malt and hops. Pours a clear dark amber color with a lasting thin well laced head. Bitter taste without a distinctive flavor. Dry feel with a light body and a bitter chalky finish.

Clear dark amber with a tiny white head that doesn’t last. Prominent toffee and honey nose with faint grass and pine notes. Light sweet toffee with a muddled medium- bitterness. Medium slick mouth with soft carbonation and a short bitter finish. No date on this bottle, but I’m hoping it is just off. Will update if the next one is any better.

500ml into pint glass. Slightly hazy golden pour. Very forward grassy hop nose, with slight citrus note. A bit of a citrus flavour with light spruce notes. One of their more palatable brews.

Un IPA qui profile le malt. Ça fait une bière bien équilibré avec une bonne amertume et un profile d’houblon floral. L’arôme et le goût sont tout les deux dominé (mais pas trop) par le malt.

Dégustée sur la terrasse en compagnie de Ju-Lo après notre merveilleux picnic de la rentrée! Bière cuivrée aux allures plutôt attirantes: mousse blanche formée de bulles de grosseur moyenne et moyennement adhésives au verre. Le liquide est trouble et paraît un peu boueux. Cette bière donne beaucoup dans le malts avec des arômes ainsi qu’une attaque à dominance maltées. Ça sent le mash de brassage. Les houblons employés sont résineux, mais ceux-ci ne surgissent qu’en finale - une fois le malt passé. Une drôle de IPA dont Ju-Lo souligne le côté miéleux du miel.

Pours a darker copper colour with a nice head and lacing. Taste is of caramel, herbal, citrus and spruce. Coats the the mouth with the spruce too heavily. Almost like I am eating flower stems. Not to my liking.

robinvboyer (3696) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
500ml bottle. Slightly hazy orange, copper pour, with a big white head. Aroma is very grassy, and herbaceous. Notes of dried tea leaves, hay, and dr s cut grass with some light pine. The body and carb are just perfect. The finish is quite bitter, with alot of pine resin and grasses,but still retains its slight spice and herbaciousness.

AgentAle (1236) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2015
Aroma is citrus, lemon grass, caramel , and light earthiness. Taste is sweet roasty caramel with hints of bourbon, oak and balanced very well by clove and citrus. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

RobBestwick (705) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle. Fairly subtle citrus aroma. Pours light golden in colour, slightly cloudy, with a reasonable off-white head. Caramel flavour with some underlying hoppy bitterness and strong malt presence. Medium bodied. A bit more bitterness in the finish. Drinkable IPA.
