bunget (699) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2015
750ml bottle from LCBO. Slightly hazy golden-amber body, medium beige head with excellent retention, plenty of lacing. Classy British IPA aroma with a spicy kick: lots of caramel malt, herbs, honey, cookies, peppercorn, pear brandy. Taste is a little harsher: lots of herbs, wormwood, pine needles, some caramel. Somehow unidimensional.

Gluepot (194) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2015
a fresh piney nose with bready malt. The taste profile features some piney hops and a mixture of fruit, including citrus, berries and maybe melon. The malt is very soft, sweet and bready - not a bad thing for an IPA. The body is a bit thin, though and I wouldn’t mind a little more richness for a iipa.

A step up from the IPA. One step. At this point, I suspect the water supply in St Thomas. It had a very cool painted label. I was so very hopeful

MarkoR (772) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
750 ml from LCBO. Pours an amber orange colour with thick off-white head. Aroma is caramel, butterscotch. Taste is same plus mild hops. Decent, but far from the best of its style.

sudomorph (944) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
7.5%abv, 750ml bottle. Pours a clear, copper/caramel with a two finger, fluffy, off white head that sticks around. Aroma has moderate notes of floral citrus, pine, resin, and a touch of bready caramel. Taste is bitter. Slightly floral but a bit too bitter with not enough flavour. Hints of resin, pine, and citrus. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly resiny texture. Overall too bitter without other flavours to back it up.

SuperTiti33 (786) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Ambré. Gros collet blanc. Bonne effervescente. Forte amertume. Très florale. Herbacé. Végétale/âcre. Correct.

DuffMan (8152) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle, shared with friends at game night. Very hazy orange amber, off white head. Caramel malts with sweet citrus hop character, light tea, modestly bitter finish. Nothing imperial here, but drinkable.

cfrancis (2758) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
Pours hazy light copper with a small white top. Aroma is grapefruit and pine hops with some cereal malt. Taste is low to moderate hop bitterness which is a little disappointing, grapefruit and pine hops. Light cereal malts. Was expecting a monster beer but got just a pretty good IPA.

jkwood04 (4869) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 5, 2014
750ml bottle in a stem glass. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and slightly piney hops, a lot of caramel and toffee hops, and dough and light notes of alcohol. Flavor the same with a weird maltiness. Average texture. Not great.

lesifflebiere (1504) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
Couleur cuivrée, un peu ocre, limpide avec très peu de mousse blanche. Le nez est fruité, dans des tons tropicaux, avec des malts qui semblent pointer vers l’avant-plan. L’amertume est plutôt âcre, l’ensemble est assez sucré, on dirait une rousse, une bitter à la limite, avec des spécificités qui sont mal priorisées (trop de sucre, pas assez de houblons, belle rondeur mais mal utilisée dans ce style). Bref, une bière plutôt agréable mais qui manque beaucoup de punch.
