AleRider78 (1550) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2017
On tap at Bowman’s Bar and Grill. Pours a very small frothy white head but goes away almost immediately, just leaves a small foamy ring. Has a clouy yellow orangey appearance. Decent sticky lacing. Aromas of tropical fruits are at the forefront, veru fruity, mostly citrus and some floral notes on top. Flavours are also quite fruity, lots of tropical fruit notes like mango, possibly passion fruit, citrus and floral hops. Nice smooth and slick mouthfeel. A little of tartiness on the palate. Great selection of hops in this one. MartinT (10239) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2017
My Bottom Line:robinvboyer (4850) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2017
Milky citrus and oats lead to a green finish colored with lemongrass and grassy bitterness in this smooth New England-style IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the murky yellow.
-Drinkability is quite high.
-This is more flavourful than bitter, which I appreciate greatly.
-Guava fruit and plantains appear throughout.
From the brewery.
Growler from the brewery. Hazy yellow pour, big white head. Aroma is grapefruit, loads and loads of grapefruit. Light mouth feel, lovely carb. Strong citrus zest and oils, and really not much else. Very nice, but very one dimensional, and quite light, lacks a bit of balance and some malts. Easy drinking, and a hop home, but lacks balance and depth.

Pours hazy golden yellow with a small white foam. Aroma is big mango and citrus hop blast. Slightly astringent it’s so potent. Taste is nice and "juicy". Mango, tangerine, citrus hops with a moderate bitterness and a nice low dankness. It’s disappearing quickly, so it must be good.

A pillowy white head on a clear lemon juice body. The nose is of moderate prominence, with pineapple, lemon and orange notes. A gnarly citrus hop presence dominates the initial flavour profile. I’m not complaining. The pineapple, orange and lemon in the nose are magnified in the beer taste. The bready malt steps back to let the fruity hops step up. The strong bitterness works well with the clean, crisp mouth feel and finish. Along with Aroma Therapy and This is Not a Pumpkin Beer, the Juicy Dream completes a powerful triumvirate of punchy IPAs for BTP this brewing season. Has anyone in Ontario done better?

Growler: Poured a cloudy orangey/golden color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention. Aroma of floral hoppy notes with light fruity undertones is quite nice. Taste is a great mix between some light fruity undertones with nice citrusy and tropical fruit hops with a smooth finish and light residual sugar notes. Body is full with good carbonation. I loved how the oat provide a smooth finish to this beer. ametras (1844) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2016
