AGAquino's rating

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 19/20
AGAquino (704) - Toronto, Ontario, - NOV 18, 2012
From notes. On cask. Pours slightly cloudy orange with a nice foamy off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine and floral bitters; some alcohol as well. Flavour is very bitter; noticeable citrus, tangerines and resin, with a sweet malt backbone. Nice cask mouthfeel, slightly astringent, strong alcohol, but quite balanced.

Tranquillity (2508) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2017
Canned. Half hazy orange, small white head. The aroma has pear and hops. The taste is strong but not overwhelming. Balanced.

Raistlin (461) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2017
Nice shiny clear deep golden to amber with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, a bit of caramel and lots of hops with zesty tropical fruits and pine. Flavour has some chewy malt with some sweetness and a bit of caramel, fruity and piny hops and a big bitter finish. Rounded mouth feel.

AleRider78 (1456) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2017
Tallboy from LCBO. Pours a fairly big frothy beige head, leaves some thick dirty lacing, has a hazy golden appearance. Good retention. Medium carbonation. Aromas of caramel, earthy, resin, floral and citrus hops. Flavours are mostly floral and citrus hops, some strong notes of toasty and caramel malt. Subtle hints of spices in the mix. Medium body, creamy, thick feel. Has a nice bitter and astringent finish. Pretty good stuff!

BrewWhatIWant (296) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2017
Pours dark amber with a decent white head. Aroma is pine and malt. Taste is fairly bitter with enough sweet to soften it. There are notes of resin, caramel, pine and nutty malt. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A really good IPA with well integrated hop and malt profiles. A welcome surprise.

Beautifully crafted beer. Nice roasted taste, but jot to strong. Very enjoyable once beastly cold.

Arcanor (422) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2017
650ml bottle no date. Pour dark orange with copper reflexions. Nice dense creamy whit foam. Aroma is malty not much more than that. Same for the taste. Bitter, creamy feel, low carbonation. My guess is that bottle is not very fresh. Next time put a date on your bottle....

Quevillon (3174) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2017
650 ml bottle puchase at LCBO Hawkesbury on April 8, 2017. Dark honey gold, medium head. Sweet hoppy barley aroma, light notes of peach. Sweet alcoholic peach taste, ok hoppiness, notes of bitter dry herbs. I would have like it more 8 years ago, I think!

yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2017
From tap. Pours clear and golden orange with a small tan head. Aroma is pine and slight fruity. Bitter, fruity, pine. Citrusy and grapefruity. Lingering smooth fruity finish.

mikkopen (1193) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2017
650 ml bottle. Hazy amber colour, thick off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, resin and sweet fruits. The flavour is malty, with mango, citrus fruits and notes of caramel, and a lingering bitter finish of grass and pine. Very tasty.

GlennHendry (506) - OSHAWA, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2016
It smells like a patch of sweet clover in a dark and forbidding pine forest. The taste is all pine. Jack Pine, like from a Group of Seven painting, in fact; all gnarly and bitter and delicious. A long-time favourite.
