asheft (2705) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2009
[bottle] Slight hay aroma with a blast of pine and scotch tape hops. Hazy brown-orange under a lasting white flannel blanket. Soapy lemony bitter flavour with not a whole lot of malt to hold it up. Medium body, medium bitterness, lingering bitter finish.

bonk0076 (99) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Pours a ever so slightly hazy straw color with a very thin white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is dominated by pine notes, with hints of strong citrus beneath it (lemon?). Taste is very bitter, but not overwhelming. There seems to be no attempt to balance it with sweeter malts. A good IPA.

daknole (10280) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Orange/yellow pour. Christmas tree and grapefruit peel aroma. Flavor is quite resinous with a light malt bill. Not half bad.

Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2010 Sweet citrus hop aroma. Bubbly murky orange with big white foamy head that laces as it thins. Bittersweet citrus, buttery malt & pine, back-of-the-throat bitter, piney aftertaste.

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Pours cloudy, tansluscent orange with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, hay, barley, dry hops, dry soil, earth and almond. Fuller bodied with a really great, carbonated mouthfeel and a sort of heavy, warming finish. Outstanding IPA.

Hazy gold with thick creamy head. Very woodsy, resiny hop flavor and aroma. Fluffy mouthfeel, nice even bitterness.

pressboxjoe (282) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Bottle. Hazy orange yellow. If I say it smells like orange chewable baby aspirin, I mean that somehow as a compliment. Heavy, citrusy hops with the evergreen aroma deeply submerged, but there. Im starting to think Ive got the Amarillo hops aroma and taste pegged, but well see. Whoa, flavor like a gut-punch to the tongue - emphatic and viscous. Bitterness on the exhale. Not as sweet as it looks or smells . Herbal flavor. I like it like I like any aggressive IPA.

keepersj12 (2932) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Fantastic grapefruit aroma from an amber pour with a big fluffy head. Robust flavor with a big hop kick. Nice and peppery with the pine, citrus resins. Very dry finish and a nice bitter after taste. Keep em coming.

garthicus (2798) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 28, 2009
Bought from the LCBO. Appearance: Glorious cloudy orange with a proud off white head. Nice. Aroma: Floral and vanilla with a cheeky amount of pine & malt hiding in there too. Smells really nice and as Tupalev says below, weve been crying out for this in Ontario for too long. Flavour: medium to strong bitterness with lots of pine goodness that makes my lips smack together. This has a nice long bitter finish and is very enjoyable.
