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.

Pours a clear pale amber with an enthusiastic three fingers of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and moderate spotty lacing. Nose is bright and big, pine resin and citrus, with some pineapple and sweet caramel malt. Taste follows suit, with brief caramel sweetness followed immediately by tropical fruit and pine resin bitterness. Medium body, with moderate sustained carbonation and a lingering sticky bitterness on a dry finish. Well, that’s a whole lot of fun! Big, bright hops on the nose, followed up by a whole lotta hops on the tongue. The flavour is nicely balanced between sweet malt and big hops at the outset, with the hops then growing by leaps and bounds. The sharpness gets a little aggressive on the finish, but not to the point of being unbalanced.

Listigovers (306) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
Very cloudy, sediment was disturbed. Brownish gold color. Very bitter, resinous aroma, yeasty, strong. Kind of rough aftertaste, not bad but needs a bit of polishing.

lesifflebiere (1264) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
Jaune paille un peu trouble avec un nez de conifėres assez puissants, et un fond de fruits tropicaux ; la texture est mi-mince. La bouche est houblonnée sans aucune retenue, laissant une lancinante astringence se poursuivre longuement en gorge. Malgré tout, elle est désaltérante et relativement accessible. Agréable concoction assez simple du côté exécution, mais qui livre largement la marchandise.

DuffMan (6735) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle, shared by TylerDurden. Very hazy bright orange, thick light golden head. Big pine and citrus rind hop flavours, sweet caramel malts in terrific balance, big flavours, long bitterness, excellent!

mcberko (6405) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
650mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy dark orange with a large white head. Aroma brings out loads of piney hops, a little citrus zest, and some crisp crackery malt - loads of pine though. Flavour brings out a huge wallop of intensely bitter piney hops - oh man is this piney and hoppy. Super dry, fairly astringent, but super drinkable. Excellent IPA.

CRock (54) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Drank straight from the can the first time so didn?t real get the full experience. Second time out of a glass - looked great with a head that disappears quickly. Really solid IPA.

HippyHop (102) - CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
You can smell this beer from across the room before you’ve even finished pouring it. Lots of pine, grapefruit rind, orange, caramel. Taste is pure hop bomb. The first sip was overwhelming, the second and third slightly less so. Thereafter the flavours start to pop all over. Lots of grapefruit and orange, and some bright tropical fruit in the background, with a bit of caramel from the malt. Finish is bitter, resinous pine, very dry. Great beer.

Draught at Thirst and Miserable (among other places). Hazy orange with a small white ring of head. Smells of orange and resiny hops. Tastes pretty heavy with a nice dollop of hops. Very bitter. It’s readily available and I won’t turn one down. 2014-07-06
