Draft from a fresh keg in the Bellwoods brew pub.
Grapefruit and pine aroma upfront and after a while I could make out some hay or straw. Pours a cloudy tangerine with an 1cm eggshell head. Grapefruit with a bit of sweetness but with long lasting bitterness. yrstruly (359) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2012
Slightly hazy amber beer, with a medium white head. The aroma is mostly yeasty and citrusy, with some honey and peach in the background. The taste is pretty typical IPA, but nothing bad by any means. Good carbonation and body, clean and bitter finish. Lubiere (14341) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
A lightly hazed amber IPA with a thick creamy mocha head. In aroma, another complex mix of hops, with meaty piney and catty qualities, crisp biscuit malt, very nice. In mouth, a smooth oily biscuit malt with nice lingering herbaceous hops, menthol, white grapefruit, very nice. On tap at brewery, June 24 2012. solidfunk (9794) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Wow, this is a frsh one. You can smell it in the fruity, almost cherry aroma that blends with the bitter hops and florals. Pours a golden amber without much head or tracing. The taste is a little less interesting than the initial aroma promises but its still pretty good. A hard, crisp bitter finish. This one is good, but probably inferior to many of Bellwoods other otherings. On tap at brewpub.

Draft at brewpub. Golden orange. Lasting cap. Peculiar hop character. Leaning in the cat piss and olive direction, which as far as hops are concerned is a fun thing. Light on the tongue, easy and very dry. Blonde toasty woody malts and supremely dry dandelion weed hop finish. Nice. Exactly the pocket of ipas I’ve been vibing on. Ordered a pint. Uprate!

Amber, lovely colour and almost bright. Bright, foresty aroma with slightly biscuity malt. Snappy with lots of bitterness, and foresty, slightly herbal hops. Lean and mean with the malts and I like that. Balanced and refreshing. My kind of IPA.
