3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Foggy ’old gold’ look, creamy white head typical of BW. Wafting of citrus and weed from the hops which play strongly into taste. Bitter grassy palate, solid malt yet not sticky, led out by looong fresh hop finish.
500 mL bottle poured into my trusty beer glass. Color is a beautiful bright, clear golden, looks like how I would picture an ideal IPA. Aromas of tropical fruits, a hint of yeast, hops, and maybe a bit of orange peels. Taste is super smooth and highly carbonated with lots of fruity notes. Body is wonderfully bitter with a rather contrasting finish which is sweet and rather dry. I've never had an IPA that has this contradiction, and it's absolutely wonderful. One of my favorite beers, probably my favorite from Bellwoods along with the Jutsu. Highly recommended. beerplace (2315) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2017
Tall can (thx, Kory V. for this extra!). Canned on 2017-10-11. Pours a murky blonde with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruits and a bit bready. Taste is similar. Very easy to drink, more like an APA, not IPA. Good stuff, though. AleRider78 (1502) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2017
Bottle from the brewpub. Pours an average foamy white head and has a hazy yellow golden coloured appearance. Lacing is decent. Aromas of tropical fruits, citrus hops, yeasty notes. Flavours are very fruity, citrusy, lots of tropical fruit notes. Some subtle spice hints. Nice smooth and silky mouthfeel, some light tartiness in the finish. So very refreshing with a decent amountof hoppy notes to give it some bitterness. Good stuff!! kerenmk (5358) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 29, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’ place. Thanks DSG. Clear-to-hazy gold, with a white head. Dry, danky, slightly skunky, lime and pine in the nose, dry, hoppy, bitter and fruity in the mouth. fizzy, medium body, long finish and juicy aftertaste. DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 4, 2017
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.

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 (6575) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUN 27, 2017

Draft at pub: pours a hazy yellowish color with a frothy white head, hoppy aroma, taste is hoppy, some citrus, dry finish. Nice IPA. HippyHop (720) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 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.
