[5533-20130622] Tap. Lightly toasted grains aroma. Clear, orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Bitter light evergreen citrus flavour. Medium body has a bit of a kick. Very tasty but was not this way at first. (7/4/8/4/15) 3.8

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
16 oz can at the Hart House Craft Beer Festival, served in a tasting glass. Pours slightly hazy amber with a medium head that remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has toasted malts, along with tropical fruit, citrus, apple and subtle anise. The flavour is medium sweet with toffee, fruit and English malt notes dominating; there is also a subtle bitterness and a hint of anise. The finish is slightly more hoppy, with toffeeish malts and more anise. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, an interesting anisey-tropical fruity-hoppy IPA on the darker end of the spectrum. 2014-07-31

Frothmeister (727) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
473ml can. Pours a hazy honey gold with a thin off-white head that quickly diminished. The nose is thin resinous notes and tropical fruit, caramel, and some biscuity malt. Up front, the taste is a wall of resinous hops with some tropical fruit, and minerality, then basically citrus pith bitterness all the way until the end. It’s not bad, but it’s definitely one sided, and not very interesting.

Sampled at the Forest City Beer Fest. Rating is likely enhanced by the fact it was poured from one of the festival’s only casks.

Deep golden pour. The nose is a bit lemony and orangey. Assertive earthy/woody hoppiness. Nice bitterness with a lingering light pine note. Tasty brew.

Orange with good head and lacing. Not bad, session ale. Some hops, but more on the malty side of the style. Bitter finish. Soft carbonation. Texture is slightly cloying. Tap at Rhino summer fest.

Can at The Rhino Summer Fest. Four hops including citra that give a fruity bitterness. Golden coloured with no head and understated carbonation, I think because of the use of lots of ice to serve it below a room temperature. Nicely done tastewise, and I hope we will see it more regular.
