Listigovers (1063) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2015
Amber and slightly cloudy pour with a white head. Bracing bitter hop flavours, sparkling palate, little bit of piney grassiness, nice hop aftertaste. Good IPA available all around Toronto, have had dozens of times.

artemb (836) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JUN 21, 2015
Aroma: strong sweet malt and caramel notes, light to moderate spruce and citruses. Taste: moderate sweeteness, strong bitterness. Flavour: malt sweeteness, like in the bock beer, resin, some citruses, some alcohol. Long strong bitterness with light alcohol notes in the aftertaste. Good but hops are too weak.

Simonm223 (6) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015 does not count
My go-to session IPA. Its VERY hoppy and thats not for everybody but if you like citrus and spruce forward beers this one drinks much lighter than its alcohol content would suggest.

RhetoricalAns (891) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
Various sources. Medium to dark amber brown pour, slight haze, medium tan head. Malt and big hop aroma, caramel, grapefruit, pine. Taste is much the same, great balance. Good bitter finish.

I want to love this, but I dont. Im having a hard time deciding why it is that I dont love this beer. Ive had about 10 of these over the past 3 months, and still I feel it lacks the excitement Im looking for. Appearance: The dense lathery head is impressive in its persistence. A great savoring (nursing?) brew as the eternal head is gorgeous, with lacing down the glass. the auburn colour is also beautiful. Although unfiltered, I left most of the residue in the bottle this time. Nose: yes, it is hoppy, with good notes of pine, but there is also a lot of biscuit malt here--maybe too much in fact. Aroma is "alright". Taste: Bitter, as expected, and malty. Balanced enough, but a little dead. Alcoholic and a bit syrupy. Not as much citrus as I like in an IPA, and a little too heavy with all the malt. I pay for the auburn colour with a little too much malt flavour. No major flaws in this, but nothing to get me looking forward to the next one. too much of a one-and-done. Still, go Canada, keep upping the stakes on the IPA. Im glad to see more on the market.

ceason (30) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Pours amber colour with thick off-white head that lasts. Great lacing. Citrus & tropical fruits, pine & malt aromas. Taste is a bit sweet and medium-strong bitter. Medium body & carbonation. Good bitter finish.

Tranquillity (2108) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
The aroma is mushy, like a damp cloth mixed with summer fields and hops. Not bad, just a bit off... Same goes for the taste. Not bad, just a bit off. The finish is really bad though, you need to wait a long time before the nasty flavors leave and the hop comes to the back of the mouth.

yourilevesque (1660) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2015
Liquide mi-opaque et dun orange cuivr inspirant, cette bire propose sous son collet de mousse blanche, un nez bien balanc de grains lgrement rtis et de houblons frais. De lgres armes dpinette et de sous-bois aprs la pluie percent la couverture de mousse blanche qui fond comme neige au soleil du printemps. Lalcool aussi est prsente et ajoute une touche de chaleur trs agrable. En bouche la bire jouit dun quilibre malt-houblon tout fait remarquable. Le palais volue en trois actes: dabord cest le malt. Celui-ci est la fois onctueux, rond et rsineux - voire terreux. Il offre une assise solide au houblon qui prend la relve et pousse les saveurs vers des horizons tonnement lgers et tropicaux. La finale est longue, amre et laisse mme la bouche un peu pteuse. Bire complexe aux saveurs volutives, celle-ci me rjouit en cette rigoureuse journe dhiver canadien! Je la recommande avec des fromages forts pte ferme.
