The beer spills forth from the 22 ounce bottle a clear golden orange with a creamy white head that piles high on the body of the beer as it degrades to nothing but a thin seal, the lace forms a blanket upon the glass. “Ah that Smell”, hops in all their glory, sweet malt and a nice fresh crispness that I find mouthwatering, start is sweet with a pleasing malt presence, top is moderate in feel. Finish has a nice hop spicy bite, sweetness still there, alcohol bitterness, and a delicate acidity with the aftertaste quite dry, a darn good IPA in my humble opinion.

Bottle. [thanks to my friend Maria for bringing this from the States]
Pours a very clear golden with a medium foamy white head that leaves a little lacing. Stunningly complicated hoppy aroma. There is pine, grapefruit, pineapple, grass as well as a doughy maltiness behind it. Flavour is surprisingly mellow - a wonderful balance between fruityness from hops and a nice sweetness. Stings in my cheeks just the right way! Great IPA!

Bomber. I’d like to thank Tronraner for making this possible. The pour is a cloudy dark gold with a very tall white head that remains for the duration of the drink. Lots of wonderful, clean hop aroma on this one. Pineapple, grapefruit, pine, orange, you name it, it’s here. It’s not overly aggressive like some other west coast IPA’s, but it is most certainly robust and very deep. The flavor is rich and drying with flavors of lemons, grapefruit, pine. This ale is bitter, but not piercingly so. Malts are right on to attempt to wet the palate a little, but definitely lose the fight against the massive hop depth. This is a stand out, new school, American IPA. Very well done.

My bottle (22oz) shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of toncatcher. Pours a murky copper-orange with a large lasting fluffy off-white head. Aroma consists of lots of fresh, wonderful-smelling hops -- a true hop medley -- what else do you need really? Flavour’s the same, it’s a hop smorgasboard! There’s plenty of malt in the back to balance it out and it has a pleasant long bitter finish. So tasty. Medium to full bodied. Simply fucking awesome!

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2007
Shared with Hogtown harry and Blankboy, ,courtesy of blankboy. Very, very nice aroma - piny and citrus hops, lot lots of centennial hops (one of the few that I can identify). Great. Murky deep dark yellow, good sized big yellow head - good lacing. Taste - really up front orange citrus, smooth, gives way to lovely bitter and light malt taste. Lemon citrus as well. A ton, absolute ton of flavour for only 7% - this is more flavourful than many DIPA’s. A stunning IPA.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Bomber. Hazy orange with thick white head. Big hops with typical grapefruit, citrus, pine resin and good malt backbone. Taste is the same, although grapefruit rind came though. Nice body, with great lingering finish...nice beer.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2007
Bottle (22oz). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, blankboy’s bottle. Murky orange pour, large fluffy off-white lasting head. Aroma - ahhh, hops; good hops; citrus, resin, pine/spruce, lush and pungent, enough malt backing to remind me I’m not drinking bark juice - and a tinge of lactose, just because. Taste leans more to the grapefruit pitch hops, starts on the mild side, nice malt/hop balance, then it builds - acidic, dry, pithy bitterness for days, alcohol enters in the linger. Thick, dry body, incredibly astringent, nicely acidic, pine and grapefruit sweetness in the linger. Juicy and incredibly hoppy - this seemed like dIPA hop levels to us - either way, WTG Port Brewing. Again.

A good solid IPA. I think it kind of gets lost with all the other american IPA’s out right now, but its worth a try. Not overly hoppy, but you can tell its there. The nose was great and full of citrus and pine. Brownish-hazy color with a decent head. Had a bomber from the local bev-mo.
