On tap at The Black Tomato in Ottawa. The color is amber with a beige head and some lace. The aoroma and taste is of hops of course, but also a taste of sweet caramel and spicies and fruits. You can feel just a wee bit of bitterness. Looking forward to having more of this one.

tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2008
Sweaty, catty, citrus grapefruit and orange suggestions to the nose. Clear copper coloured body is topped by a low tan head that recedes slowly to partial cover with excellent lacing. Caramel malts are quite pronounced but blend well with moderate bitterness. Plenty of lingering citrus and grassy hop character in the aftertaste. Very dry in texture with moderate carbonation. Sampled on tap at Caffe Volo during Grey Cup weekend 2007.

Tap -Volo, a huge whack of hops hits you with this aroma, it has a citrus/candy flavour with hops raging through it, very very enjoyable and I look forward to drinking many more!

kseecs16 (1216) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Draught at the Beer Bistro in Toronto. LIght amber with almost no head. A slightly sweet hops aroma. Seems a bit too balanced with the hops lacking any real assertiveness and their flavor overwhelmed by the dry maltiness. As it warms some more resinous hop characteristics are noticeable. Smooth with a faint lingering bitterness.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Pours deep copper with nice big notes of hops. The citrus and bitterness predominates over the palate and offers a nice full balanced finish.

3.4
Quevillon (3206) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2007
Bu en fut (20 oz) au Black Tomato (Ottawa). Rousse simple, mince collet avec de la dentelle. Arome d’houblon sucré, un peu de pêches et une petite sensation amère. Goût bièn amère et agréable, houblon un peu sucré, légèrement floral. Un bon et surprenant IPA d’Ontario!

Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2007
On tap at Volo. Coppery color with hoppy aroma. Bitter predominates, but doesn’y overpower the other taste elements, which include malt and citrus.

Magtek32 (76) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2007
Pint at volo. Orange/copper colour with a thick off white head. Aromas of floral hops, grapefruit and some malt. A hoppy citrus taste with notes of caramel. Smooth tasting with a nice bitter finish. A good local IPA.
