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.

On tap @ Caper's Belleville. Pours a clear gold with a medium white head. Aromas are fruity malts a bs some pine resin. Tastes are acidic, bitter, and a little phenolic. Moderate carbonation, medium body, long resin finish. Struggled a little with what I perceived as a phenolic taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Can from LCBO, 6.5%. Near clear copper with a small head. The aroma is, oh my, very strange, floral, even obnoxiously so. Or rather, not floral, cause I donít mind the smell of flowers, but... well, I donít have words to describe it. Raspberry? The flavour is similar, but more refrained in that deparment. Itís citric bitter and malty sweet. But thereís no escape from the strangeness so out of place in an IPA. Body and carbonation around medium, palate slightly oily. Overall? Bad. Not sure what it is supposed to be. But itís not what Iíd consider a good beer.

CaN provided by Scott, i donít think he is a spy .. . Amber .. Foam is strong like Arnold .. Resin, dried leaves, rocks on a car, and grass .. Mouth is good, spot on finish .. . Traffic jams should be called car rapings.

Apparently in St Thomas, this is an IPA. Someone should explain to them that doesnít stand for Industrial Product Adjunct. Calling it dismal... but Iím sure thereís a better word. Not good

Tapped at a pub I cannot remember the name in Gananoque/Canada. Overall a very good IPA. Golden, copper clear color. White head that was gone very quickly? Aroma of floral hops, bitter fruits. Taste is a good balance of malt and floral hops with a good bitter hops finish. Medium carbonation. Refreshing. Good.

Bamsen78 (4606) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2015
Draught @ Stout Irish Pub, Toronto. Pours clear golden with small white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops, with some malty touches. Sweetish, malty flavour with notes of yeast and bitter, hoppy touches. Rough and estery aftertaste. Okay but nothing really mind-blowing.

Pours a very large amount of foamy off-white head. Medium amber colour. Ok lacing. Aroma of various malts and hops, grainy. Pretty strong hoppy taste with the usual citrus flavours standing out. Pretty good stuff.

rcorriveau (7) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015 does not count
A nice IPA that is aromatic and hop forward. Not over the top and in your face with hop bitterness. In fact has a nice hop bite with true citrus bitterness.

Crockett (1039) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Pours clear honey gold with a big fluffy white head. Citrus nose, with sweet grass and hay notes. Flavour is has some nice bitter rounded notes. Very light body. Palate is overtly simple. Mildly citric and piney hops, sitting on top of a cheerio cereal scented bulk. But the overall finish is very grainy and unclean.
