UPDATED: FEB 8, 2007 Draught at C’est What. The tap handle for this was a syringe full of hops, so along with the name, I knew to expect big hops and that’s what I got. Really nice aromatic, light piney/citrusy hops, with a big presence. A decent amount of malt balances it out. Reminds me of a bolder, hoppier Tankhouse Ale. Mild-moderate bitterness in the finish, quite sessionable. This a really nice and supremely drinkable IPA and like other here have mentioned, it good to be finally getting these beers from Ontario brewers. RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
Impressive yet ’simple’ beer. Bitter and aggressive throughout with a remarkable hop taste towards the end, yet drinkable and refreshing. Had at Smokeless Joe’s Patio. Very fulfilling, will have again! strowlands8 (298) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2009
Really enjoyable the bitterness is not overwhelming and the hoppyness is delicious. Really enjoyes this beer one of my favourites, especially in the style. BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2007
Smells sweet and soap/perfume-like. Odd. Minimal white head. Pale colour. Hoppy (as one would expect). Slightly bitter aftertaste. Generally not very appealing. yumyum (221) - barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2008
decent brew. Nice hoppiness and mouthfeel. Nothing to get crazy excited about.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 A good IPA. Nicely balanced. The needle bar handle is really cool as well. 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! 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. beer4bears (75) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2011
On tap at Bierbistro. Second try at this one because I thought I must have had a bad one my first time. No better the second time so I don’t understand the high ratings. Dark amber with a thin head. Some citrus, but overall lacks aroma. Thin in the mouth. Sub-par carbonation. Just not as good as other IPA’s out there.
