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

Sample from can at the Strange Brew Tasting on 02/18/2012. This brew pours a clear yellow-gold color with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Light grassy hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with a mildly bitter hops character and notes of bready malt and fruit in the background. The finish is short and leaves a fruity hops aftertaste. Average overall.

JaBier (4842) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Can shared by a friend. Pours clear gold with a huge white head. Aroma of sweet malt, honey and mild hop. Sweet malt flavor followed quickly by bitter hop astringency before an earthy hop finish.

pours dark with good head. Taste is bitter and dry , lots of malt. Not much in the way of hoppiness though.

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2012
Pours a hazy dark orange. Aroma is malty and floral (lilac) with a little booze. Nice chewy mouthfeel. Caramel and citrus hoppyness, but nothing extreme. Finish is a bit salt and mineral. Aftertaste is lasting and a bit unpleasant. Something not quite right in the balance. I can see what they’re going for but I’m not really down with this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IWillBeLight (9) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011 does not count
From can. Rusty brown-red with large white head that fades quickly. Earthy hops aroma. Feels gritty and sticky in the mouth. Bitter finish. Decent blue collar IPA

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2011
Pours a clear golden-yellow with a modest white head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Spicy and lightly citrus hop taste with lightly sweet malting. Crisp body with good carbonation. Very quaffable - packs a wallop!

Appearance: Transparent orange, lots of carbonation, massive frothy white head. Aroma: Very sweet, banana, vanilla, hints of caramel and butterscotch. Palate: Smooth, slightly dry finish. Medium bodied. Slightly creamy texture. Taste: quite sweet. slightly bitter and salty finish. Kind of a simple flavour, but rather pleasant.

lukin (443) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2011
bottle. Deep golden colour, small head. Aroma is fresh citrus hops, bready malts. Taste is somewhat hoppy, though certainly not the "hop bomb" that was advertised. Not outstanding, but good.

solidfunk (3817) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 25, 2011
pretty hoppy,though not sure how much of an IPA it is - the bottle certainly doesnt say anything. Its pretty decent in my mind, if a bit overpriced due to the fancy bottle.

Flamojune (113) - Ville de Quebec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2011
Acheté LCBO -Atrium on Bay-Toronto. Golden, Mild malt aroma with fleural tropical fruit arome. Bon gout de fruits sucrés, apricot, mangue, finale hoopy pamplemousse. Je l’ai acheté à cause de la pochette pis du nom...Ils ne marquent pas IPA sur la pochette...Huge surprise, un bel effort pour ces Ontario.
