(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 (7110) - 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.

probstblueribbon (3652) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2009
Bomber from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Slightly hazy deep golden with a decent off-white head. Aroma: Lots of pine and grapefruit from the hops, dusty and earthy, some nice caramel notes, some burnt sugar, apricots and other fruitiness, Palate: Medium body, fairly soft and sparse carbonation, smooth. Flav.: More peach/apricot than the nose, still a nice hit of pine, earth and grapefruit from the hops, a bit dusty, a touch nutty, less caramel character; dry with good bitterness and a fairly pleasant caramel/fruit finish.

I’m sure its been said before, but here goes: “You’re not supposed to eat yellow snow, but man is it nice to drink!”

This is a "real" IPA with no apologies. I prefer more of a malt balance, but this hop-heavy first ale is probably more authentic to style. Very powerful floral and citrus aroma out of the bottle. Nice white lacing. Little too bitter for me, but I recognize this is well executed.

asheft (2901) - 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 (10828) - 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 (1241) - 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.
