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

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 (493) - 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.

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.

AWS9 (504) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2011
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.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2011
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.

Metalchopz (2398) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2011
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 (3549) - 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.
