Deep copper-amber in colour, thin beige coloured head, light lacing. The aroma is quite hoppy, lots of pine and orange with some light caramel malt undertones. The flavour is again quite hoppy, good amount of sweetness, the pine carries over and grapefruits are introduced, the caramel malt provides the balance. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, tingly carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy and dry. This completely blew me away. Totally unexpected, a brewery to watch in Ontario for sure.

Growler. Amber-brown with a medium, sticky whitish head. Aroma is sweetish, with caramel, toast, and hops. The taste is quite hoppy, with just enough malt to back it up. Nicely bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Kinda like an English bitter made with Belgian yeast. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2015
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear weak amber-pale golden with a short lived white head. Aroma is caramel, lots of toast, grains and herbs. Flavor is caramel, lots of roast. Finish is roast, herbal, slightly earthy. Lingering malt, biscuit, slightly herbal. Medium body, average carbonation.

Nice big creamy head and a clear amber body. Soft hops and malt aroma. Flavour is slight nuttiness, sweet malts, with a medium hoppy finish. This is a good one.

50 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON, Canada. Dark golden, thick head. Brown sugar-resin aroma. Thick, strong nectarine flavour. Long sweet caramel finish balanced nicely with malt. Better than I thought.

Bottle. Amber colour with off white head. Malty, sweet, caramel aroma. Nutty, sweet, toffee, smoky, a little bitter, though a touch thin. Nice though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quite nice, thought I was drinking an EPA, not an amber, Not terribly similar to any amber ales I have had. It has very grassy n’ earthy notes, it has a light hop aroma and taste, its colour is amber, overall pretty tasty stuff

Tranquillity (2333) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2016
Canned. Aroma of metal. Brown body, big beige head. Taste of roasted nuts, quite weak and boring.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2011 1.9 l growler from the brewery. poured auburn with a huge frothy white head that leaves beautiful lacing all down the glass. very hoppy aromas. super alpha for sure. excellent bitterness but it is well rounded by the malts. roasty flavours near the finish that make you smile. an excellent brew//////////////////////////// fairly steep decline on this one through the years, still a servicible brew but not nearly as great as it was initially

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2007
Growler. Majestic copper body with a small white ring of head. The aroma is very grainy with burnt malts and cookie dough. A nice flavour profile with soft doughy malts, metallic pine bitterness and particularly in the finish where it appears to be quite brash and bitter.
Glad to see another brewery open up around these parts!
