341ml bottle. highly carbonated brew with a super clean coppery colour to it. I found it had a real soapy character. very floral, some carbonation on the nose as well. there is a funky note. I think this bottle is off. hoppy greenish notes on the palate leaves alot to be desired. i think it is over carbonated which amplifies the leafy hoppy notes but does nothing for the malted aspect of this brew. it feels disjointed.

341ml bottle. Clearish copper pour with a frothy eggshell head that leaves a solid lace. The nose is dominated by a barnyard feel with some good floral hop notes underneath and a soapy quality. Odd. Fairly tame in the mouth with a high carbonation. The finish is lingering hop bitterness. A bit of a disappointment. Possibly an off bottle.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2011 Nice resin nose, a bit floral. Some sugars and vanilla come out also. No yeast on the nose. Opaque red with little carbonation. Thick white head that rapidly dissipate, but lingers on top. Nice bitterness, not to pronounced. Nice maltiness to balance the hops. Nice mouthfeel, thick and creamy. Average fizz. Finish is medium, but the hops cling to your tongue; nice! Nice beer, the best IPA/Pale Ale Simple malt has to offer!

Bottle, thanks rciesla for sharing. Brown pour with tan head. Hints of citrus and light fruit, some reminisce of citrus and tart fruit, oxidation and paper like malt tones.

Gorbalev (2906) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2010
Bottle thanks Colin and Kendra! Nice citrus and malt aroma. Looks great - glowing murky orange, small thick white head. Great citrus taste and huge bitterness up front. Really sharp bitterness throughout and long linger as well. A bit of burning alcohol. Yep, a very solid IPA with my favourite hop.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - DEC 21, 2010
Very nice foggy amber and a good light beige head on top. Decent IPA aroma, and a decent IPA taste. There’s little outstanding about this one, but it is an okay IPA.

GT2 (8163) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Poured a clear, yellowish amber with a decent, off-white head. Okay lace. Aroma is sweet malt, sweaty old hops, lightly cheesy hop pellets. Taste is pine needle bitter, sweaty, pretty much a pine-cone bomb.

Draft. Medium beige head atop crystal clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit/orange, some bread. Taste is medium sweet, orange/grapefruit, some bread. Medium body, some acidity.

thx to cfrancis for the bottle. The cap apparently was glued on with some industrial concrete. Nice amber colour with an average sized light tan head of small bubbles that leave sloppy lacing. Straight forward hop aroma of leaves, peaches, nectarines, caramel, faint medicinal - smells pretty good. Citrus and caramel flavours are pretty much the model for this brew. Peaches, pine, caramel, herbal notes are gaining strength, sweetness is not dominant. Simplistic and tasty with ample bitterness that keeps me aware. Heavily carbonated IPA’s seem to be a trend to me lately. Endless gas - I’m hoping not to melt off my wife’s eyebrows as I attempt to get some skin in the middle of the afternoon.
