Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2008
Thickly unfiltered. Rich rocky head. Light brown colour. Rich, foresty aroma with vague citrus and fresh hop dust/resin. Firm, rich, lingering bitterness. Toasty, chewy malts underneath. Excellent IPA, with a touch of rusticity

Sammy (8726) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2009
Hand bottled by brewer Greg Nash and generously given one by Jon. ALl the characteristics of a good high IBU American style IPA. Except that the taste was somewhat muted, still enjoyable: Aroma of C-hops, taste of grapefruit,decent mouthfeel, and certainly most drinkable. Nice appearance.

MartinT (7956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Powerful hop resins and their leafy, wooden compatriots agreeably blend in the full caramel maltiness of this fruity and balanced IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the light amber.
-This must be fantastic on cask.
-Carbonation is soft and allows all flavors to shine.
-Hops evolve into pine territory as well.
-The fruitiness mostly recalls oranges.
-Although the hoppiness is muscular, it does appear to come mostly from high alpha English hops.

On tap at Vices et Versa, Montréal.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2009 Draft at Maxwell’s Plum in Halifax. Orangey amber body with a decent white head and lacing (3+). Mild hoppy aroma and caramel malt. (6+) Pleasant bitterness and caramel malt. Very light citrus. Average palate. More of a hoppy pale ale than an IPA, but quite quaffable. 7/3/7/3/15 - 3.5

2008-11-06. Hazy orange body with a decent off-white head and lacing. (3+) Resiny hop aroma up front, lightly yeasty fruit undertones. (7+) Pleasant hoppy bitterness throughout, moderate resin. Bitterness grows at the back, lemon, light astringency as it blends with a touch of alcohol in the finish. (7+) Smooth average plus palate. (3+) Very solid IPA. Definite step up from the previous version. Now 7.1% abv <i>On tap at brewpub</i> 7/4/7+/3/16

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 14, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 Re-rate 2014: medium golden, far less aromatics than my first experience with this beer, and really only modestly bitter. Just okay this time around. Initial rating from 2011: On tap @ the brewpub. Attractive red-orange, medium cream cap, lovely lacing. Bracingly hoppy aroma and palate, heaps of citrus rind, pine, and passionfruit. Long bitter finish. 4.0

TaktikMTL (5854) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2008
En fût. Pot Mason de 16 oz dégusté chez Barnyard BBQ (Moncton, N-B). Arôme: Odeur de pin avec une pointe de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée légèrement voilée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût très présent de pin avec une pointe de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. (Rating #1723)

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Seasonal. Draught at brewpub, sampler. Cloudy, burnt sienna. Almost muddy orange-brown-red. Briskly hopped nose has lots of pine. Soft mouthfeel. A little chalky. Sweet entry, earthy middle, bitter and dry finish. The yeastiness adds nice character.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
reebtogi (4244) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
341ml bottle pours a copper color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and caramel with hints of pine. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation leaving a nice tingle on the palate. A well crafted brew that exceeded my expectations and was well enjoyed.

JulienHuxley (3272) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Very hazy gold pour, white head. Great hoppy nose, lots of really strong citrusy hops, citrus rind, grapefruit. Taste is very bitter, a bit too much so in fact, good hop flavor but slightly acrid citrus flavor. That being said, it was a pretty delicious hop fix.
