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, IBUís 46.6

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

Poured from a cold can. Light orange color, medium head, nice lacing. Typical floral and hops smell. good blend between hops, taste and drink ability. Refreshing IPA.

500ml can. These arenít the hops Iím used to from my IPAs -- much earthier, muskier, meatier. Lower on bitterness and punch.

550ml glass from draught tap. Pleasant light malty & hoppy aroma. Initial nice fruity taste, but the aftertaste was hoppy in the wrong way. Kind of reminded me of silage, so struggled to like it.

Not as strong as many other craft beer IPAís out there which can be either a bad or good thing depending how you like your IPAís. Anyways overall a decent beer.

Hop bomb is right. This was a but overwhelming. 473 mL can from the LCBO. Hoppy aroma with some citrus. On the tongue a lot of hops with a long bitter finish. Wouldn't order again, but appreciate the effort the brewmasters went to. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pushkinwow (1842) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
500ml can from LCBO. Pale and mostly orange hued amber with a creamy white head. Wet grains, some dry malt, bit of citrus hops although more orange then anything else. Moderate carbonation, mild+ body, slightly bitter at first and then grows without overwhelming, feels a little grainy on the palate, bit of sweetness and skunk on the finish.

DuffMan (6162) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Can. Orange amber with an average white head. Aroma is light pine and sweet grains. Flavour is light caramel sweetness with a pithy, herbal dry bitterness that is almost a bit harsh, like crushed aspirin. Not sure how fresh my can is, but its lack of aromatics suggests that it is past its best days.

Flimsy. Drank this one after some tight-like that IPAs. Neither here; neither there. Not the place to be. Try again.
