neuromatt (1155) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
22 oz bottle from the LCBO, served in an English pint glass. Pours clear amber with a small, off-white head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are big notes of pine and flowers, along with a hint of citrus. Caramel malts come through as well but are overpowered by hops. The flavour is moderately bitter up front but becomes even more so on the back side, with increasing resin and some peppery notes. The finish is long, dry and bitter. On the plate it is medium in body with a pleasant dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent IPA but the hops are a little simple and one-dimensional. 2013-06-11

Draft - Grapefruit sweet hops. Clear gold with a decent creamy beige head. Big grapefruit pith and resin. Grapefruit finish. Nice grapefruit hop bomb, out of balance but good.

On draft. Pours a rather dark golden orange with a thin white head and lots of lacing. Taste is robust with some strong hops, and a hint of pine. Palate lingers with lots of bitterness and hop character. Solid IPA.

SlovakSniper (3177) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2013
Une bouteille de 650 ml dégustée avec Anna P entre deux chasses. Une belle robe cuivrée. Une tête large et rocailleuse. De gros morceaux blanchâtres qui restent collés sur la paroi de nos verres. Un nez piqué par des aiguilles de conifères. Une formation citronnée qui semble aussi apparaître à travers des éléments houblonnés floraux et terreux. Peu ou prou de malts caramélisés pour en faire un quelconque éloge. Un goût de houblons frais et humides, de pin et d’épinette avec, pour agrémenter le tout, la présence de bonnes morsures florales. Une bouche pétillante et légère, un peu mince mais parfaitement compatible avec mon palais qui cherche toujours, dans ce type de bière, la picolabilité. Une finale très longue avec des houblons vifs et puissants qui laisse l’intérieur de ma bouche sèche et piquée comme peut le faire les milliers de cactus du désert de Sonora.

Really nice flavour, not overly hoppy, good colour and nice aroma, definitely worth a try.
