On tap, Imbibe, Kitchener. Yellow, medium creamy white head. Strong pine aroma - huge actually, appreciated! Taste is very dry and very bitter - as advertised! medium body holds it together well but this one is all dry piney hops - huge from start to very long bitter finish. Maybe a bit one dimensional, but it is a dimension I like! Well done folks, and thanks to Imbibe for having this on tap in KW.

En fût. Verre de 7 oz dégusté chez Vices & Versa (Montréal, QC) au coût de 6,75$. Arôme: Légère odeur de pin et d’orange. Apparence: La couleur est orangée avec une faible densité de bulle.

Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de pin en arrière goût. (Rating #6208)

473ml can from LCBO. Pours a hazy orange with some sediment. Very thin and foamy head, almost light and airy. Nose is citrus, pine, and fresh hops. Maybe some tropical fruit. Tastes of pine, grapefruit, and some sweeter malts. Bitterness hits you in the back of the tongue. Resinous, yet light. Hops are not quite balanced by the malts, but typical for the West Coast IPA style. A stellar brew. For sure on my top 10 IPA list. Rivals some of the IPAs from my local brewers. Would love an imperial version. Sawdust City has been turning out some amazing brews. Perhaps a summer trip to Gravenhurst is in the cards... Very well done.

Cloudy amber, some fruity character and light bitterness, with a fair bit of yeastiness.

CacheManyHose (310) - HONG KONG - JAN 4, 2015
From LCBO and drank at Ian's house in Toronto. Cloudy golden-caramel with thin watery fizzy head. Smells of juicy fruity floral hop, tangerine, Tastes of orange juice, very bitter hop, light pepper. Body is bitter and a little fizzy. Highly bitter, somewhat unbalanced. Can see how they were going for a West Coast IPA style with this.

HKdIPA (364) - HONG KONG - JAN 4, 2015
Can from LCBO at Ian's in Toronto. Slightly hazy golden-orange pour. Aroma is somehow fizzy - very orange zesty and hoppy. Good. Taste is more straight resiny orange peel hoppy, very bitter and sharp. Less malt to balance. Body is a bit on the light side. Good lighter, orangier IPA.

Franckg (245) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Le nez est dominé par les houblons (pamplemousse et tangerine), pin et une touche de caramel. Le goût est savoureux. Fruits tropicaux amères et résine de pin. Les sucres prennent leur place vers la finale. L’amertume est modéré, résineuse et sèche. Une belle découverte.

Amber pour, fair sized head. Lots of pine and grapefruit zest in the aroma and taste. Cracker malt backbone, citrus peels, slightly resiny. Medium body. Very easy drinking

Orange gold colour, fantastic pine/citrus aroma. Pine and grapefruit rind, earthy hop bitterness linger on the palate. Exceptional brew, we?ll done. Easily in my top 5.
