Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear orange brown with lots of white head that dissipates slowly leaving lots of lacing, also has some visible carbonation. Smell is really nice, lots of hops, citrus, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, everything a harvest ale should be. Palate is a bit oily with light body and not much carbonation on the tongue. Taste is pretty good, a bit sweet at first, with a bit of spice as a prelude to the nice roundness of the hops filling the palate. The aftertaste is a bit lacking however, and should be more bitter.

Pours a hazy copper color with a strong Cascade hoppy smell that bring out some grassy and Piney notes. Lot’s of hop on the palate with a moderate mouth feel. Finishes with a bit of bitter hop that goes away quickly, can drink this all day long. BreWedge (531) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
On tap @ Hintonburg Public House. Pours a clear amber with a thick beige head. Aromas are grass and citrus. Taste is bright citrus fruit (pineapple?) and citrus hops. Mouthfeel is creamy with mid-range carbonation. What stands out is the lack of a long astringent finish that is typical of these uber-hoppy styles. The bitterness is cumulative however. Nice beer! chris__hartley (443) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2012
It pours amber with sienna highlights; the head is light beige and marshmallow-like. The aroma has notes of: pine resin, grapefruit, toasted biscuit, and treacle. The taste is medium dry and slightly astringent that finishes medium bitter; there are notes of: grapefruit, caramel, lavender, and slight toasted grain. The palate is medium-light bodied, medium carbonation, and a medium finish. Overall, it’s fairly interesting, however not enough to raise both eyebrows.

In short: A lame IPA with overripe fruits
cards04 (2784) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
How: Bottle 750ml flip-top, 2011 batch, consumed relatively fresh 1.5 month after purchase
The look: Almost clear dark amber body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is not very hoppy showing light notes of wet grass, ripe citrus fruits over a barley candy. Taste has too much overripe red fruits and overripe citrus fruits, even some ripe bananas, some barley candy, wet dishcloth, dank hops, hops resin. Juicy bitterness with a rotten fruits flavor. This was a pretty lame beer. I was told this is was a boring beer, but do you know why I bought this bottle anyway? Seriously I’m asking. Please tell me because I have no idea why.
Amber colored with thin white head. Some sweet malts and honey on the nose..a bit of citrus on the palate with some nicely balanced sweetness. Silky smooth....nice beer. nimbleprop (8278) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 17, 2012

On tap at at Smokeless Joe in Toronto. Dark amber pour. Aroma of caramel, grass and citrus. Pretty smooh, medium body. Flavour is a little bit nutty and sweet. Straw and caramel. Finishes clean with a hint of lemon. Warms up nicely, got better as I went on.

Bottle. Pours deep copper with minimal off-white head; spare lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, bread malt, straw, and faint earthy hops. Flavor is earth and floral hops with sweet malts. Medium body and carbonation with light warmth. GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2012
Belle bière rousse, limpide, coiffée d’un fin col crème laissant une fine trace au verre. Des arômes de caramel, de conifères, mais aussi de beurre. Moyennement amère avec un peu de sucre résiduel. De corps moyen, texture huileuse, effervescence fine, elle se termine sur une longue fin aromatique.
