on cask at the brewery in toronto. golden (this doesnt look like an IPA). no hops in the aroma. no hops anywhere. my server told me the hop shortage has affected this brew and its not as good as it once was. ill i can say is this is an uninspired offering.

Listigovers (944) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
Cask. Kind of tropical smelling, soapy head and very foamy, very round and smooth creamy palate, fresh grassy hops, easy drinking IPA, bitterness is moderate and hop flavour is the primary.

Kauge (1648) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 7, 2016
Tap at Granite in Toronto. Slightly hazy golden with off-white head. Interesting and not at all IPA-ish fruitiness, a kind of passionfruit nose and flavour. Carbonation really mild, and not too surprisingly, watery on the palate. Really soft on the tongue, which is rather pleasant... Yet how it all comes together... Not exactly the kind of IPA Id enjoy very much or write home about. Pleasant enough to finish the sample though.

deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2016
Can from the brewery. Pours a deep apricot with thin white head. Nose is fruity and floral, euro hops, overripe fruit. Taste follows the nose, fruity esters, firm bitterness, low carbonation, some citrus fruit. Very English, very tasty. Light for an IPA. I like it. Not at all in the west-coast style.

Cask at Castro's Lounge. attractive colour and head. No odour. Unbalanced and watery on the palate. Little hops. Long finish but not enjoyable. Wouldn't order again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (7056) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured an orange-amber color with a medium sized soapy white head that left no lacing. The aroma was tangy, fruity and citric. The flavor was bitter, dryish and bitey with fruity and citric hops. Long finish. Light body and thin. Meh.

Freaky_tiki (1083) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
Cask pour at Victory Cafe looks fantastic: butter yellow body with a plump & curvy one finger head. Clear case of nice legs, shame about her face. This is a mild tasting British style IPA, with a flaccid palate & far too flowery flavour. May go well for a quick pint before work, but other than that your other options have more pull.

Ferris (13170) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2013
Cask - Earthy and a bit of grapefruit. Clear gold with a thin head. Grassy and resinous hops, perfume, mellow with a light malt backbone. Nice cask style session English IPA.

fiveacestx (933) - Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2013
On tap at Granite Brewery - golden with a soapy head. Far and away the worst IPA I have ever had. Taste is buttery and watered down. If you ever have the opportunity to drink one of these, get something else instead.

Grey Cup 2012. Sample tray. Good head on cask. Nice hop delivery. Grapefruit with light malt gentleness. Nice finish and aftertaste.

LilBeerDoctor (3796) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Cask @ Volo. Pours a cloudy orange with minimal head. Aroma of toasted malt, jam, apricot, toasted biscuit. Flavor of bready malt and bitterness up front, followed by spicy hops and tobacco. Light, drinkable, and tasty. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]
