COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full bodied golden Pale Ale which pours with a linen white medium density head leaving spider web lace on the glass. On the palate the flavour is sweet fruity malts up front (apricot, mango) with a bit of candy, and slight grassy notes which fall away to reveal a hint of biscuit with rather pleasant grapefruit and perfume undertones. This is a hop bomb, there is no doubt. To the nose there is a mild malt aroma which accentuates the robust floral bouquet which is derived from the hops.

Medium full bodied ale with pleasant lingering hop finish.

6.8 % alcohol by volume, IBU’s 46.6

Food Pairings: Burgers, Chilli, Chorizo, Crispy/Spicy Duck, Spicy Indian dishes

Strong ale. Very sharp hops. Definitely good for a nice strong winter beer.

Bendrixian (1323) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2011
Amber to yellow in colour, slightly hazy, little carbonation and only the faintest touch of lace. smells like corn syrup to me, high alcohol, some resinous hops and a slight note of diacetyl. more of the same on the palate with the alcohol being out of balance with the hops and little to no malts.thin brew and i was surprised to see this called an IPA.

JB84 (649) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2011
Aroma of tangerine pineapple, pine and touch of malty sweetness. Hazy orange with a nice white head and ok lacing. Taste very malty with very little hop /bitterness to back it up. Bit of caramel and some fruity notes. Medium body fine carb. Not a hop bomb in the slightest. An average Ontario offering.

I’m an afficionado of stouts and porters. I don’t care for ales because of the sweetness, but this is the first exception. Despite the retarded and sickening name which put me off completely, I was attracted to the pretty gold colour, like some of my fave whiskies or liqueurs ( but we are not pretentious snobs so who cares about looks really?) What initially sucked me in was the unusual vanilla presence in the grapefruit bouquet. Furthermore I was surprised by the full bodied taste of this feisty 6.5% beer. Couldn’t believe such a gem came out of Ontario. Neat!

UPDATED: APR 29, 2011 Draught sample at the Toronto Food and Wine show. Golden pour, with a decent white head, minimal lacing. Tastes of hops and a small amount of grain.

Tessic (926) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2010
This IPA poured a cloudy amber colour with a nice, big, bright white frothy head. to the nose there are scents of hopps, pineapple, spruce and juniper with beef stew and dough too. First sip was nice and smooth with nice bitterness with flavours of hopps not overdone. Flavours of citrus adn spruce with a bitterish finish with the hop flavour lasting awhile.

A hazed orange amber alew oth a thick frothy light moka head. In aroma, a very herbaceous hops, lightly infected, but with some Fantome qualities, sweet fruity esters, quite nice. In mouth, a sweet malt with with nice hops, light grapefruits, again, very Belgian esters. Surprising. Thanks Karl.

On tap at C’est What in Toronto, served in an English pint glass. Pours clear golden with a small white head. The head fades quickly to a thin cover but leaves behind lots of loose lace. The nose has aromas of pine and citrus, along with flowers, caramel and pale malt. The flavour is sweet caramel up front with light fruits and cookieish malts. It soon dries out and hops take over, imparting an intensely bitter flavour. The finish is long and hoppy. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a reasonable pale ale with a strong hop presence. It is a little one-dimensional, however. The malts could be more prominent to achieve better balance. 2010-12-10
