Prepare to be round-housed in the taste buds. This is a North American style India Pale Ale. It has an intense North West Pacific-hop character from a ridiculous amount of hops added to the brew-kettle, and then dry-hopped later on during conditioning. Citrusy, floral, and fruity flavours take front stage, while the caramel accented malts give it some balance.

Has a light copper look with a small white head. Aroma is citrus and floral, with perhaps some pine thrown in the mix. This beer is very hoppy, and finishes dry. Pretty good.

jamestulloch (3486) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 24, 2016
Keg at Corks. Hazy amber body with a thick off-white head. Lively fizz. Good lacing. Aroma of crisp red apple and pot puri. Flavour of blood orange, sherbet, toffee and bitter hops. Medium body with an oily texture. Light fizz. Hoppy and unpolished. I liked it.

Kauge (1617) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 7, 2016
Tap at Syndicate in Niagara Falls. Almost clear amber with basically no head. The aroma is pretty boring floral and citric hops and malts. Tastes sweet, more floral and orangey than malty. The following bitterness doesn’t doesn’t really mix in with the rest so I wouldn’t say it’s well balanced. Light to medium body and modest carbonation. Not a disaster - just a rather uninspiring IPA.

kevinsenn (2015) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2016
On tap at brewpub. Not much aroma to speak of. Taste is pleasant and fruity and floral, with a distinct butter finish.

Tranquillity (1876) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2015
Tap at sinister. Dark golden body, fine white head. The aroma is not too strong, and the taste isn’t balanced. Maybe bad batch or maybe not the IPA for me.

Draught @ Syndicate, Niagara Falls. Pours clear amber with small white head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of needles and touches of malt. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of citrus and estery hints and touches of malt. Bitter, slightly rough aftertaste. Easily drinkable and quite pleasant. Not bad! 090715

FROTHINGSLOSH (6837) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured an amber toffee color with a large foamy off white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was bitter grapefruit and lemon. The flavor was bitter lemon, grapefruit and hints of herbal and perfumey hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. Solid.

Quevillon (2925) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
Drank on tap (10 oz) at Syndicate Restaurant and Brewpub in Niagara Falls on June 24, 2015. Copper orange, small head. Mostly raw barley arome, some notes of hoppy orange. Spicy citrus hop taste, a bit sweet, not to bitter. It’s not a sinful IPA, but it’s not sin drinking it!
