Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
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.

I tried this beer on April 9, 2012 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO Outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada - Part of the LCBO Spring 2012 Release. The beer poured a hazy light gold colour with a thin white ring that lasted. Aroma was primarily grainy malt, with a little sweetness. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with mild carbonation. Flavour had a mild citrusy hoppy taste, some grapefruit, with some sweet malty balance. Very enjoyable.

Marheb (3155) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 10, 2012
(Meilleur avant 24.07.12): Une moufette est passé par là...sinon c’est des notes d’agrumes amers qui domine au nez et en bouche. Un corps mince à moyen avec un fini qui fourni peu de sécheresse pour une ipa. Buvabilité massive, agréable après une journée de travail sans plus.

TheJester (2163) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
500 mL bottle. (bb 24.07.12). Hazy yellow (like a wit) with a nice, fluffy white head (like a wit) and some visible sediment. The hops bring lemon and herbs to the nose, and there is a touch of what smells like pilsener malt. The flavour is a little more floral, with herbs and honey. Excellent malt profile. Body and carbonation are great, for the style. Very well done.

HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2012
Cask flight at Ginger Man in NYC. Light golden pour with a light white head that laces nicely. Very faint Earthy hop fragrance. Taste is Earthy hops, sweet roasted pale malt and biscuit. Thin but slippery in the mouth if that makes any sense. It’s velvety smooth. Piney hops linger in the palate. Nice but not great.

lembeek (143) - ITALY - APR 10, 2012
Testa bianca, cremosa, di media persistenza. Aroma floreale con note di agrumi. In bocca entra morbida, ma ma le note dolci vengono subito sovrastate da una luppolatura elegante. Buona acidità. Finale secco.

jaghana (4632) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 10, 2012
Bottle 50cl, a clear golden beer with good head. Nose is very hopy on grape side. Aroma is resinous, bitter, medium sweet to low, astringent, lemony, some honey, low body, coconut notes, too citric.

BlackHaddock (4916) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
A lot of my drinking mates rave about this beer, I’m not so keen. This review is of a hand pulled pint, poured into a UK sleeve on 2 Sep 2011 in one of my local pubs. This beer always seems to be slightly cloudy/hazy whenever I see or drink it, this pint was no exception. The thin white head on top didn’t excite me either. The smell as you’d expect was of hops, floral ones with some hints of fruit too. The taste was also hoppy and with those same almost hidden fruits, some maltiness also hanging around below the surface but always being pushed down by the hop content. The body was well carbonated (for an English IPA) and felt quiet spritzy. I’ll never be a lover of IPA’s, I’m a malt man rather than a hoppy one, but this isn’t a bad beer, it’s just not for me.

kevinsenn (1465) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle from LCBO. Very pale with tons of floating sediment all around. Beautiful aroma of tropical and citrus fruits, with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is a mix of good and bad flavours. The good: citrus and tropical fruits, and some grassy hops (what the aroma leads you to expect). The bad: hay, farmyard, and soap. Body is too thin. Overall drinkable, but better (cheaper) IPAs are available.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2012
Bottle. hazy orange with a steay white head. Nose is herbal, lemon, lime, earwax, sticky sweetness. Flavor is similar, hops are pretty faded. Had the Halycon on tap at CK in DC and it was fresh as hell but this shit seems way done. Light citrus, but mainly just grainy malt.
