Not bad this is one of my favourites from the brewery. Clean brown with light head. Aroma has some sweet malts and a bit of breadiness to it. Flavour is a little buttery and like fresh white bread but it has a nice amout of bitter to it. Medium body. mephisto (1294) - TAIWAN - JUL 14, 2007
copper hue with beige head, the aroma is subdued hoppiness. it is medium bodied, the bitterness anchors the flavor quite well, nicely balanced. mnurda (1289) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottled sample at ribeye jacks. Pours amber with minimal head that dissipates quickly. Large caramel toffee and malt flavour. Nice and bubbly. Great aftertaste

Sample at Volo IPA Challenge. Pours a deep amber with a large off-white head that recedes eventually to a ring. Aroma is slightly sweet, good floral hop notes. Taste is much the same but with a good malt back and a pleasingly bitter finish. Solid and well crafted. bvc (1242) - Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2009
500ml,rizz style. Copper amber color with a gray-white head. Toffee, peach and some bready malt. Thin watery body. Slightly sweet an sour with some earthy bitterness. Tastes kind of infected to me.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2007 This ale poured a slightly cloudy dark orange colour with a big frothy dense head, light tan in colour. Very hoppy scent at first. Then came the orange citrus and a little spice at the end. First sip was very hopped, quite a bite. Bitter finish with a little roasted malt and toffee. Overall, way too bitter. They really need to back off on the hopps on this one. After 2 - 600ml glasses I couldn’t drink any more. Thats no good when you have just bought almost 2 litres. Flavour after a while is almost acidic. cyrenaica (1159) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2011

I tried this beer on May 5, 2011 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent brownish-red with a rocky tan cap that laced well. The aroma was sweet caramel malt, and weak floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is quite hoppy with a malt sweeetness in the middle - I was hoping for better.
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 I went directly to the brewery to get some of this. It comes in a 2L growler. Pours a nice deep amber colour with a ton of sticky head. The aroma is very malty, almost like maple syrup, with a bit of hops thrown in. It smells very sweet, and pretty enticing. The taste upfront is sweet, toffee, a touch of caramel, biscuity, then the malts make ways for some huge hops. Amazing malt backbone all the way through though. The finish is very bitter, with a significant hop bite, but also filled with delicious barley malts. The body is sticky with a decently fuller mouth-feel. Wow, this one’s pretty different than anything else I’ve had. Not all that smooth, not exactly easy drinking, but still a pretty amazing brew. It’s just so tasty! bunget (1010) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2012
500ml bottle. Intense amber body, almost wine like, medium creamy yellowish head. Aroma is a delight, bready sweet, hops, malt, caramel, hint of vanilla....is this a 4.7% abv?
Taste is very malty, with tons of hops, almost feels like an oak barrel aged beer, piney, oily mouth-feel, dry and refreshing. Excellent.

500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear deep amber with small off white head that quickly fades. Nose is caramel and roasted malts with floral hops . Sweet toffee, vanilla and some banana with a light citrus bitterness in the finish. Slightly watery slick mouth with soft carbonation. Hops never really come through in the taste.
