cyrenaica (1126) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2008
500ml draught
5.0% ABV
I tried this beer at the "Beer Bistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer was a translucent reddish-gold with a thin white head. The aroma was primarily floral hops with smidgen of malt. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, medium carbonated, and bitter on the tongue. The flavour was grapefruity hops, some peppery hints, and a little malt.

Draft at Smokeless Joes in Toronto. Poured orange with an off white head. Sweet and hopppy aroma with orange and caramel. Flavor is like hop juice, citric and floral. Just enough malt is there to balance. Nice, very drinkable and thirst quenching.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2008
Objectively speaking: A dry-hopped, rather potent hop lotion where hop leaves where still visible from the cask serving.
I like: Extremely easy to drink. Pleasant citrusy notions. Highly pleasant bready malts make an excellent basis for the hops to shine on. Cracker-like chewiness- rather bright and certainly very clean also. Surprisingly high level of bitterness grow form sip to sip.
I dislike: Rather unappealing appearance, totally headless and full of hop residues. No oiliness despite having fresh hops in the glass, it lacks any trace of fresh perfumey, floral hop aromas. Alcohol feels much higher (6.5-7%) than it really is.

On tap at C’est What? OUTSTANDING! Lots of pine and citrus grapefruit aromas. The intense hop flavor is great. This seems like a much stronger beer than the 5.45 ABV belies. Long lingering tongue drying palate.

decent brew. Nice hoppiness and mouthfeel. Nothing to get crazy excited about.

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2008
On tap at Volo. This one took me by surprise. Besides DFH and Stone Ruination, all the others IPAs I have had to date have been very thin and unbalanced in its bitterness. This one makes a fine IPA. Very floral aromas. The taste follows a similar bouquet with plenty of hops and bread. A fantastic beer!

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2008
On tap at C’est what? Copper liquid is topped with a frothy beige cap. The aroma is heavy citric hops(mostly grapefruit)with some pine, followed by bready, cookie dough and caramel. Taste is bright cirtus rind hops, fresh leafy greens and pine with some butterscotch and caramel sweetness. This is quite dry and chalky, and finishes bitter and and tasty. I wish it was available near me!

JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
Tap at Beer Bistro and Volo. Copper coloured brew. Aroma is loaded with pine and sweet grapefruity citrus. Lean crisp malts with a bit of breadiness as well. Flavour is quite nice. Good balance of pine and malt with a firm bitterness on the back. Lingering piny resinousness. Excellent IPA.

3.7
Blasphemies (45) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2008
Draught at Bow&Arrow. Clear dark copper colour. Very hoppy taste, bitter with a dry finish. Do not put ketchup on your fires and go back and have a sip of this, you will feel the hops take over your face.

4.2
yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2008
Pint at Volo A coppery brown beer a lacy head. It smells very much of floral and citrus hop notes. The taste is very hoppy, crisp and clean with a very nice dry finish. If you love hops, as I do, this beer is stellar! It somewhat reminds me of Anchor Brewings Liberty Ale
