Bottle. Orange-amber colour, creamy head. Aroma of bready malts. Taste is well-balanced, slight woodiness, bitter finish. Like the description says, simple and straightforward, but quite well done. BreWedge (531) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
500 ml bottle sample. Pours a light amber with a large pillowy off-white head. Aromas are bread, hay, over-ripe fruit, and slightly acidic, Tastes are an interesting balance between sweet and bitter. There are some gentle caramel malts offset by some copper and grass. Light bodied, strong carbonation, and a medium to long astringent finish. Interesting.

500 ml bottle from lcbo, Elora. A clear amber with a thin head. Aroma of malts, floral hops and yeast or bread. Taste a little sweet, some malt, caramel and hoppy, bitter finish. Quite pleasant. RayOhm (474) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2011

Faint hoppy aroma. Cereals, malts and citrus flavors with strong, lasting bitter aftertaste. Pours a hazy orange amber with small receding head. Cask conditionned? Feels like my palate’s been attacked by evil underworld worker trolls. Despite that, good stuff man... Good stuff. deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
Fresh 500 ml bottle. Nose is fresh fruity hops, grassy, citrus. Taste is smooth with bitter finish, earthy hops. Nice. Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
500 mL Bottle. Gold - amber body with a thin but frothy white head. Aroma of pungent hops, sweet light malts, and a sharp astringent note. The flavor is sweet-syrupy but rich malty along with a hop bitter that has a subtle pine character to it. The aftertaste seems rude at first but it quickly tames to a kind of toffy - malt combo. This is where this beer truly shines in its yin-yang balance of near extremes. Long bitter shifting to clean finish. Pugnacious indeed! rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2011
Appearance: Pours a transparent orange, no head, lots of carbonation. Aroma: Super hoppy. Hoppy hoppy hoppy. Slight hints of banana and cloves. Palate: smooth, slightly dry. Medium-thin bodied. Taste: quite bitter, but not too bitter for me, slightly sweet and salty. Pretty good for an Ontario IPA. Surprisingly good coming from Grand River, given their Cherry Ale was the most noxious beer I’ve ever had. I actually enjoy this one, though there are better IPAs out there. tompete (329) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
Pours a clear orange with an off white head. Aroma is sulfur and caramel. Flavour is malty and bitter and some more of the sulfur. Finish is a little sour and bitter. The malt lingers a bit.
