Enjoy By 08.02.13 poured from bottle. Perfect color for an IPA. Love the aroma - citrus and floral notes. Great hop character too. Very clean front with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Not quite as good as when it’s a day or two old, but still very good.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Deep straw with fluffy white trade. Slightly hippy aroma not what I would expect. Really quite hoppy, nicely so. Lingers well with a nice finish. Pretty nice. Really opened up once it warmed. It was really nice then!

Tried this in a tasting at the beer store. Fruity and hoppy to be sure. A bit over the top for my personal preferences.

Had the most recent version on tap. Lots of pine, citrus, and some scallion. The taste didn’t disappoint and was nice and piney with some citrus notes as well. The finish is right where you’d want it to be bitter, dry and flavorful. Only down side was the scallions...

08-02-13. Incredible hop aroma with pine predominating. Taste is bold with piney hop bitterness, resin, alcohol, and a touch of malt. Fantastic beer, even when it’s three weeks old.

The bottle told me to drink it right away so I poured the sonna bitch in my micky donalds cup and gulped her down on the drive home. I recommend drinking this one with a splash of warm diet coke.

Bomber. Enjoy by 8/2/13. Alcohol in the nose, approaching rubbing alcohol character even. Other than that, nutty. Hoppy, but actually not that bitter.

I can hardly find the words to describe this. Maybe the best dips I’ve had to date. Holy cow. Amazing fresh wet hop aroma. Dank, citrus aromas too. Tastes like wet spicy hops and grapefruit rind. Crazy smooth and drinkable for a beer this size. So so so good. Damn you Manitoba for not bringing in amazing beer like this.

Bottle. 8.02.13 type. Pours a light copper. Two fingers of head, off white and hangs around for a bit. Extreme notes of grass, as well as floral and hop notes as well. The grass / pine flavor dominated when it touches the tongue. Finishes sweet and hoppy with some mild citrus flavors. A very solid IPA.
