Glass at Patties. Clear amber with fluffy creamy white topping. Light hop presence, somewhat wet, musty, bitter but smooth, dry, grass. robinvboyer (4611) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
Growler from the brewery. Dark gold color with a small white head. Ever so slightly pine aroma amongst alot of pale malts, and so buttery diacetyl. Good mouth feel and carb. Finish is medium bitter, with more butter, and some more light pine notes. Not very interesting. KansaiBeerLvrs (5099) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. A clear light copper pour. A lightly hoppy and breakfast cereal aroma. The taste is a clean bitter hoppiness with citrus & pine that is nice balanced with a solid malt backbone. A zesty medium body with a healthy dose of caramel. Ashton brewery are solid making well balanced beers. OOKPIKABLE (193) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at Irene’s Pub. Aroma of pine and citrus. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Tastes of pine and citrus. Refreshing. Eructoblaster (4183) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
On tap at Brothers Beer Bistro (Ottawa, ON). Golden body with average carbonation and a lasting white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with bready and herbal hints. Its well balanced taste lacks complexity and strength. It carries bready notes and ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish.

Not bad on initial nose for an IPA but the overall palate doesn’t do well as aftermath turns a little too astringent. Pours a nice cloudy amber with great creamy head and carpet lacing. The pillow of head disguises a good sense of hop aroma here though. Its too bad because initial aroma is this brew strong point. Some citrus here nonetheless, and a little malt. Finishes kind of sour and acrid. Tap at quinns. AleRider78 (1046) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2013
"Yet another beer tasting venture with Metalchopz at Quinn’s Ale House! Got a fair amount of creamy head from this one, with a medium golden colour. Good lacing. Hops are strong, not too bitter but just enough. Aftertaste is pretty good with some citrus overtones. Very refreshing!" blankboy (7662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2012
Draught at Paddy’s, Ottawa, August 18. Pours a clear bubbly golden-orange with an average size creamy white head. Aroma of light resiny, oily hops, mild for the style, along with bready malt -- mild but nice. Flavour of resiny hops and bready malt, simple but pleasant. Medium bodied. Pretty good, it’s no "hopstravagansa" but it’s a decent beer. probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
Pint at Quinn’s. 16AU12. Clear deep golden with a thin white head. Fruity, nice biscuit malts, toasty, some earthy, floral hops, a little resinous, not bad but not hop crazy. Medium body and effervescence. Decently fruity, some caramel, reasonable fruity, floral hops, decent fruity maltiness, bordering on cloying sweetness; off-dry with reasonable bitterness. Doesn’t live up to the name. rejtable (2625) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2012
Pours amber-orange with a nice white head and lots of lacing. Not much coming from the nose. In the mouth I’m getting solid malth with a nice almost grapfruit balance with a medium bitter finish.
Nice enough, but pretty simple brew.
