Kauge (1958) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle from LCBO. Pours hazy bright orange with well-retaining and lacing off-white head. Sweet jammy-malty, pineappley-citric nose and flavour. Fresh fruity sweetness continuing with citric minty bitterness. Pleasantly thin but refreshing carbonation, somewhat oily, good medium body. So nicely balanced. Excellent.

wquirk (8) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2016 does not count
Bottle. AROMA: grassy with Citrus. APPEARANCE: Light copper pour with a thin white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. TASTE: Pine + resin. PALATE: full and oily, with big bitter finish

allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle from the Beerhive, drunk on the hottest day of the year after some lacklustre gardening as some kind of reward. Pours hazy yellow gold with a thin white head. Aromas of near-minty herbs, savoury, sweet malt, faint citrus. Taste is resinous, sweet orange, then a forced rhubarb kind of thing, stewed with white sugar, lightly astringent, but also fruity and sweet, like John Inman in Are You Being Served. Good balance of flavours, lots going on, but also slips down very easily. Texture is just on the right side of oily, fragrantly bitter on the finish.

Terminus (3683) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2016
Bottle given to me by a friend. Pours bright orange hue with not much lacing. Nose is earthy herbal not what the deScriptions say. More of a British ipa than anything. Flavors of herbal hops very woody biterness. Decent but not west coast

3.7
Jow (3925) - New York, USA - APR 18, 2016
Tap at Draught 55, copper pour small head. Nose is candy and some melon. Tastes of peach, honey dew, candied malts, caramel, some grassy tones. Sweet sugary plate would have guess DIPA but I guess abv slipped under radar.

3.3
lesifflebiere (1887) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Une bière pétillante, jaune orangé aux arômes d’agrumes et de conifères ; texture mi-mince, limpidité intégrale. La bouche présente tout de suite une attaque houblonnée, sucrée et intense. L’amertume en fin de gorgée, toute costaude soit-elle, est partiellement noyée par l’épaisseur des malts. Une IPA lourde, qui crinque tous les boutons à 11, sans réellement se soucier d’une quelconque balance. Loin d’être mauvaise, cette bombe de houblon est cependant d’une subtilité qui frôle le zéro. "Hamfisted" qu’ils disent en anglais je crois.

3.6
BelgianBeerGal (4066) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2016
Draft at Fishale. Hazy gold color with just a patchy khaki head. Huge aroma of pink grapefruit and pine resin. The flavor is also big with a nice bitter bite, lots of malt to balance and a hint of booze. That's about as big as an IPA can get for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.1
RhetoricalAns (939) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
650 mL bottle shared. Golden to amber pour, couple fingers of foaming white head, great retention. Big fruit aroma, lots of grapefruit with some melon as well. Fruit is balanced with pine / resin hops as well. Taste is much the same, big hops, big bitterness, but there decent amount of caramel malt. Medium to full body, nice and round. Great IPA.

3.9
ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
Aroma of citrus and hops. Pours deep golden with a white head that lasts the whole beer and laces the glass. Taste of hops with citrus fruits and has a  medium bitter end. Very good beer.
