Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, - AUG 3, 2010
Draught @ Pump House Brewery, Moncton, NB: Amber pour, good sized head. Aroma is very hoppy, smells promising. Bitter! Very spicy with floral and citrus hops. Malty toffee hop bomb. Love it.

Very malt forward beer with subtle hop aroma. No faults, but not what I was expecting for an IPA, which should be drier and hoppier than this version. Too much Crystal malt. Okay, but not great by any means.

BrewGoblin (365) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Itís...an okay beer. I would very happily take this over any lager swill any day but not sure I would ever buy it again. Itís a clear orange-amber with a thin head. Smell is of caramel, resiny hops and corn. Just not too much going on, not unenjoyable but there are so many IPAs out there now you need to stand out with some feature of your beer. A decently solid brew from a solid brewery.

Hazy golden color. Aroma of mixed summer fruit. Taste is fruity and balanced. Easy drinking.

On tap - light cloudy orange, nice grapefruit hoppy aroma and sort of a grapefruit rind hoppy taste.

MunBro (399) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Not very hoppy, this IPA is more focussed on malty bitterness. Not great but not for me.

reebtogi (4239) - 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.

On tap at The Maxwells Plum in Halifax Buttery toasty bitter butterscotch with faint citrus hops in the background.

MarkoR (533) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from NB Liquor (Shediac). Pours a cloudy amber colour with medium white head. Aroma is hops, citrus. Taste of hops, grapefruit. Pretty good.

Atheist_Peace (967) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Clear amber pour with lots of eggshell head. Lots of grapefruit on the nose with some spruce, and caramel. A bit of a letdown on the palate. Everything seems muddled somehow. Decent bitterness in the finish but this one is certainly nothing to write home about.

jdobbs (394) - New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
This IPA has a long duration for flavor, with an extremely bitter finish. Citrus and fruit in there, but itís the hops that shine through. Very West-coast-like! M: Medium-bodied and creamy, with average carbonation. D: A really interesting and tasty IPA; I must admit, I was surprised Pump House would make an IPA this strong and hoppy. Sure, you canít drink something like this all night, but itís damned good.
