In short: A glass of citrusy hop juice. Simple but highly drinkable and highly refreshingSlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
How: Tap at BeerBistro, Toronto
The look: Clear copper body topped by a very small off-white head.
In long: Hoppy nose as expected on the citrusy side of American hops. Taste is citrusy hops wall to wall with some pine-cone juice here and there. Inexpressive malts that provide an adequate body without contributing much to the flavour spectrum. Very juicy and refreshing beer. Smooth carbonation. Sharp bitterness of medium intensity. Couldn’t resist ordering it when I was that pump handle and was rather disappointed to get it in a pint that had to be orally ingested. Teaser.
En fût au Beer Bistro. Une bière cuivrée et son mince col de mousse. Un nez de céréales toastées et de houblons aux consonnances fruitées et florales. Au goût, des notes de caramel qui valsent sur des houblons parfumés et amérisants. Une bouche légère et son effervescence bien menée. Une texture crémeuse. En finale, une amertume agréable qui s’étend avec gentillesse. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2008
Draught @ Victory. Amber, not much head. Nutty malt, some perfume. Light quaffable mouthfeel. Dry. GREAT hops. Fruity, lingering aftertaste. Good IPA. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Tap at Caeli Cottage in Toronto. Pours a light amber- deep copper with a thin but lasting white head. Aroma is sharp nutty toasted malts caramel- crystal malts and light fruitiness with a ctirus and orange zest light pine hop kick. Flavor is hoppy, a bit resinous with some pine with a toffee and caramel maltinss, toast and a gritty hoppy bitterness in the end. I liked drinking the Hop Head IPA a bit more just because it was easier to drink- this was a bit too tacky in the end. Solid though. muzzlehatch (4951) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #27. Draught pint at Volo in Toronto, July 2008. Smooth, creamy snowy head topping a dark, clear copper body, with a bit of chunky lace...nose is woody, resinous hoppiness, rather dry and brittle...a bit of woody character to the body also, alas turning to sub-wood, that is cardboard in the finish, but there’s some decent peachy, juicy sweetness and at least a bit of dry bitter hoppiness as well. It certainly starts out better than it ends, but not a total loss.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2007 I’m a big fan of hops, but not insane hops, and this is right up my alley.
Beautiful aroma of citrus, and hops.
nice bitterness, but not too much bitterness, just enough to keep you comming back for more. I often have this at the Beer Bistro during my lunch! awesome stuff! Hey Durham, BOTTLE THIS!!!

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. Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 15, 2006
Too hopy for me, it was very well brewed, very dark, good foam and not annoying but too bitter. GRM (4019) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2008

Saturday sampling at beerbistro in Toronto. Pours a nice amber with grapefruit honey and a nice medium body and hoppy finish. The name is a bit misleading compared to some of the american IPA’s i normally drink.
