AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Very strong hop flavoring. This is a little more than I prefer and would not want to drink too much of this at one time. There was also alot of grassy flavors to the beer.

KimJohansen (10408) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2009
Cloudy golden with a tiny off white head. Hoppy aroma with peach and pine. Flavour was quite hoppy with pine, peach and grapefruits. Finished bitter.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2009
22oz bottle, no date. Hazy golden color, very nice head retention and lacing. Holy crap, it’s actually bottle conditioned! Old skool IPA aroma, somewhat astringent with noticeable yeastiness and a harsh mineral note. Lingering bitternes and heavy yeast note, lots of yeast left in bottle even after a sloppy final pour.

obguthr (5255) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Citrusy aroma of tangerines and apricots, not strong. Murky golden, thin head, good lacing. Orange and pine needle flavor, slightly resinous mouthfeel. Starts slightly tart and builds to a very piney bitter finish. Some grapefruit notes come and go. Pretty nice, but may be a bit much.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Enjoyed via draft in a pub glass. The beer pours a light to medium amber color with a fairly thick white head. As expected, notes of citrusy/piney American hops come through in the nose. Moderate carbonation, suiting the beer well. The palate begins nicely bitter, flowing into some hop flavor and resin in the mid-palate, before finishing with a curious and not altogether pleasing semi-rotten fruit hop note. Little malt character shines through, other than perhaps a touch of bread/biscuits. Overall, a solid, if unspectacular IPA.

Spab (3142) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2009
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a cloudy orange gold with moderate ever so slightly off-white head, decent retention. Hoppy citrus/floral aroma. Flavour is strong on the citric hops, with some dry grassiness. Big bitterness in finish. Pretty nice.

cfrancis (2952) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2009
Pretty good IPA. Nothing spectacular but above average. Pours a pale yellow looking very much like what makes yellow snow. Aroma is a sweet and hoppy. Taste is sweet, some yeast and hop although not a lot of bitterness. Very enjoyable.

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2009
Bottle ( 22oz ). Very cloudy orange, extremely large long-lasting fluffy/foamy off-white head. Soft, lush lemon zest, tangerine and pungent floral aroma - dry, mildly spicy, not sweet, just a bit juicy - very nice. The taste follows - mild alcohol, dryly bitter, not as fruity, some pungent grassy bitterness joins in, and in the finish it seems a bit like herbal iced tea with lemon. Middlin’ body, slightly astringent, mildly carbonated, with a decently long dry bitter finish. I’m going back for a case!!

radioseer (299) - Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2009
(12 ounce bottle - pint glass) Pours a hazy orange light copper liquid, which has little head. Aroma is of citrus hops, notes of grapefruit and orange. Since aroma is a prelude to taste it tastes of citrus hops grapefruit, clementine and orange. It also tastes of some resiny hops. Mouthfeel has drinkability and average carbonation. Overall good to great beer.

blankboy (7044) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle [650ml]. I’ve drank three bombers of this this week, it’s about time I actually rate it. Pours a cloudy golden-orange with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Nice aroma, a good amount of resiny hops, pine and citrus too, along with caramel malt backing it up. Flavour is quite hoppy, with lots of those aforementioned varieties of hops, backed by bready malt and along with some fruit and a nice, long, very bitter finish. Medium bodied. A great IPA, and definitely one of the very best to ever hit Ontario.
