A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

probstblueribbon (3351) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2012
500 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. 17AL12.

App.: Cloudy bright golden with a large white froth. Aroma: Rich tropical fruits, floral notes, some pine/resin, sweet honey, biscuit malt, a little grapefruit and citrus, a touch dusty/musty, nice stuff! Palate: Medium body, moderately prickly effervescence. Flav.: Pine/resin, mango, tropical fruits, floral honeyed notes, some toast, quite nice, a little citrus; dry with fairly good bitterness and a fairly persistent honeyed malt, pine/resin fruity finish.

Quite lovely.

Hazy straw colour, pillowy and fizzy white head. Quite a bit of sediment. Aroma is yeasty, orange and lemon, tropical fruit. A little leafy and spicy. Fairly light sticky body. Sweet peachy, almost wheat beer qualities, with a citrus finish. Very refreshing.

teorn88 (3964) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours a clear yellow straw color with a huge soapy white head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is hoppy with tropical fruits and some grass. Very nice. Taste is a bit disappointing though: the bitterness is very mild and not anywhere near where I’d like it to be in an IPA. Flavours are quite balanced between malty sweetnes and hoppy bitterness. Grassy and floral. Thin in body and lively carbonation. Overall, it’s a 50/50 beer to me. Everything is great except for the flavour, which really laks in hops profile, bitternees, and fruity notes.

blankboy (6657) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2012
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a cloudy yellow with an average size long-lasting fluffy white head. Good lacing on the glass. Pleasant aroma of grassy hops, lightly sweet and yeasty along with biscuity malt, herbs and lemon. Flavour of grassy hops and yeast along with some tropical fruit, biscuity malt, herbs and a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty enjoyable stuff. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

Pours a cloudy light straw yellow with a medium frothy white top and great lacing. Aroma is light citrus, grain and pineapple. Taste is light, medium body. Nice tart citrus hop bitterness with hay like grain of the malt. Very solid IPA.

HogTownHarry (6322) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
500ml bottle from the LCBO, generously shared by garthicus. Cloudy yellow with a flock of white floaties, smallish fizzy-foamy off-white head. Aroma of a tangy grassy UK golden ale, albeit a much hoppier than average one, detectable alcohol, and I swear a Belgian Golden character about the yeast too; not too sweet, mostly sharp and spicy, underlying fruit - apricot? Taste follows, the fruit seems like unripe pineapple, quite a nice balance of mild alcohol, lighter fruit, inoffensive graininess and plenty of oily grassy bitterness - subtle and well blended. Average body, solidly carbonated, lightly astringent, fairly long spicy/grassy finish - not world beating, but I suspect that I could drink buckets of this on cask. I plan to do that in August IF I CAN JUST FIND SOME PLACE IN LONDON WITH THIS ON CASK THEN!!!

500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a cloudy pale yellow/gold colour with moderate-sized white head and lots of little floaties. Aroma is lemony, grainy and slightly spicy. Flavour is lemon and some other tropical fruit, biscuit and some spicy and herbal character. Fairly lively carbonation. Enjoyable.

Bottle from LCBO. Decent enough well balanced IPA. Some hop up front, and then some nice peach backing. Strong carbonation, pours yellow.
