mcberko (9753) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2013
650mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a hazy dark golden orange with a small off-white head. Nose brings out lots of orange fruits, candied sugar, and toffee -- seems over-malted for an IPA. Flavour is thankfully more hoppy and dry, and less sweet, bringing out notes of piney hops, a touch of candied oranges, and grapefruit. Quite bitter, dry and juicy on the finish. High drinkability - very refreshing on this hot day.

jercraigs (8670) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
2013-09-01. Lightly hazy bright orange body foamy white head. 3+ Aroma of leafy green vegetation. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout and quite green and leafy. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. I did not particularly care for it. Bottle shared by a friend at board games night.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 My Bottom Line:
This authentic American-style IPA focuses on its resounding hop resins to latch on the taste buds, as citrusy tips and svelte cereals add depth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces around the hazy blond, lacing nicely all the way down the pint glass.
-The lasting hop resins contribute lots of bitterness. This is hopheads only.
-The citrusy component is not overt, as it can be in many American IPAs, but it IS there throughout.
-A bit rough, but every bit the West Coast IPA; this could easily come from Oregon or Washington State.
-The nose could be cleaner in its presentation of hop aromatics.

Bottles.

Ferris (8128) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle - Orange and tons of resin. Clear gold with no head. Resin and chalky with a well balanced bitterness. Decent but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (8064) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle shared at RBAG 2013. Orange amber with a fine particulate cloudiness and a creamy off-white head. Aroma is pleasant citrus and tropical fruit with sweet underlying malts. Fruity hop character, sweet malts, minerally dryness in the bitter finish. Tasty.

swoopjones (6986) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2014
sample at Festbiere du Quebec, Quebec City, orangish pour, fuller bodied. citrusy & piney hops, solid bitterness, substantial malty backbone but it still let hops shine. Nice IPA

blankboy (6633) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
[Bottle (660ml)] Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small lasting fizzy/frothy tan head. Aroma is nice and fruity along with a good amount of hops, a hint of spices and a touch of yeast. Lovely flavour, so fruity and hoppy -- there’s some alcohol there but it’s reasonably well hidden. Nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. I loved it.
