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

Bottle. Gold-orange pour with no head really. Sweet, grassy hop aroma. Mild fruitiness, the hop taste seems to dissipate pretty quickly as it goes down. Minor bitter finish. I’d like this a bit better if the hops were a bit stronger, as it left a bit too much booziness. Good overall though.

I don’t know why this beer doesn’t have higher scores, there is something about the HOPS and CARAMEL taste that make this beer amazing. I do find it is very inconsistent though, sometimes I find it alot better then other times. I am new to the Beer world and this was one of my first stepping stones for it was the only beer in my area for being from a very small town. All and all it’s worth a try to anyone.

Bottle from LCBO Manu. Nice copper body with big head. Nose is sour, fruity and sweet. Taste is sweet, malty with notes of caramel. Hops too but quite dark for a IPA. Enjoyed it quite a bit.

The brewer’s description says this is a hop bomb. Hoppy yes, hop bomb no. Golden-amber colour with a slight haziness from minuscule particles floating around (says "Not pasteurized" and to "keep refrigerated"). Its head is huge, off-white, frothy and foamy with great retention and a bit of lace. The hop is felt in the aromas with notes of caramel malt and a little alcohol warmth. Smooth oily mouthfeel with a small amount of dryness in the finish. Grapefruit citrus taste, pine and fruity malts complete the taste. Fresh apples come out in the aftertaste. Pretty good brew overall and more hoppy than most macros. Just not a hop bomb (at 47 IBU).

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2011
From my dear brother: Pours a copper color with a white head. Aroma is of fruitiness (mellow citrus mostly) and hoppiness. Beer is fairly hoppy (not quite hop slaughter, but it got the inclination of going in that direction). Fairly well-balanced as well. A little bit of sweetness rings through as well. This is a fairly standard IPA, but a very drinkable one at that.

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

Bendrixian (1069) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, 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.
