On draught at the Brewpub, lovely golden hue with nice head retention. Aroma carries typical west coast hope profiles, resiny, slightly tropical, some tangerine. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice slightly astringent finish. Top 3 Ontario IPA. Cudos.

Bottle shared at a tasting at troubles’ place. Thanks Dean for this bottle! Hazy yellow with a white head. Great juicy fruity hops, tropical, citric, a bit "green", slightly oniony, dry flavor, moderately bitter. Very nice. koleminer20 (3798) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2017
From notes. Tasting at Corbet’s house for Game 5 of the NBA Finals on June 12. 500 mL bottle. The pour is a cloudy golden yellow with a small dense white cap of head that sticks around quite a while, leaving a light lace. The aroma is pretty good. There is a bright piney resin bitterness up front with a light fruity citrus and it transitions into a light maltiness on the back end. It’s nicely balanced, but the maltiness on it isn’t my thing. The flavor has a little more citrus and bitter pine. The maltiness falls off a little, and is replaced by a slightly sharp alcohol on the finish. The mouth feel is clean and light-medium bodied with a nice carbonation and a lingeringly bitter citrus and light malt. It’s pretty good. 7 4 7 4 15 zvikar (6264) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUN 27, 2017

Cloudy gold with a small white cap thah leaves some nice lace. Another juicy hop bomb - one of many I've had this weekend but this may be the best. Dank, piney/cedar hops with notes of grapefruit rind, tangerine and pungent tropical fruit notes (unripened mango? I dunno im drunk). Nice sweet, chewy, bready malt with a huge dose of oily, resinous hops. Hop bomb without being overly bitter. Extremely well-balanced, with a moderately bitter lingering finish. One of the best IPAs in Ontario for my money (along with GLB's Karma Citra and Sawdust's Lone Pine). Fantastic.

500ml bottle from the brewery. Pours an opaque gold colour with a small white head that dissipates quickly. I get lots of pine and citrus on the nose. Taste matches the aroma with a well balanced citrusy and peppery finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Not as bitter and dry as your usual IPA. I really enjoyed it.

A fantastic brewery in west end of Toronto. Another great beer by them. Appears very hazy, smells good, tastes great! omhper (25380) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2017
Keg at Brothers Beer Bistro, Ottawa.
Lightly hazy golden, mid sized head with good lacing. Striking aroma of lime, physalis and bread. Mid dry with medium body and elegant, well rounded mouthfeel. Tangerine, physalis and white bread. Peppery bitter finish. Elite IPA with exquisite hop character, but more importantly a character underneath that and an overall harmony. SG111 (1936) - New York, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Tap at the source. Pours clear golden color, white head. Aroma is fresh pine, tangerine, grapefruit, orange, pineapple. Classic piney IPA. Flavor is pine, orange rind, grapefruit, pineapple. Nice. But standard west coast IPA. Prototypical IPA.
