Bottle. This one nearly exploded out of the bottle, resulting in loss of beer. What I managed to get into the glass was dark caramel and cloudy. HUGE head that slowly subsides. Lots of lace and and black floaties that I am assuming are yeast. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Taste is similar, with some resinous, mildly piney hops in the background. The balance is tilted a little more towards strong malt in this IPA. This is a good beer, but I have better choices brewed closer to home. Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2010
Tasted: 2010 Calgary Beerfest. Pefect hue of Hazelnut Brown. Nose: Warm toffee, forest wood and morning toast. Taste: Toffee entrance followed by dancing hops that cover every area of the mouth. Birch tree comes through near the end and sticks around through a long finish. I am blown away by the quality and depth of Paddock Woods beers at this tasting.

Pours a hazy dark amber colour with virtually no head. Aroma is of light caramel malts, hops and some fruit. Taste is sweet and malty, close to brown sugar a little bit, it is bitter towards the finish, which is long. Average carbonation, medium body and fairly nice. Overall it is good but there lots of other IPA’s ahead of this one. DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2010
Nice malty nose, more like a pale ale, orange, with a tiny custard head. Taste is malt and fruit. Medium bodied, very nicely balanced, pleasantly bitter. Very good. Thanks RadekKliber. Radek Kliber (7352) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 23, 2009

Appearance: pours as mildly hazed amber brew with gushing foamy top that left neat lace on glass. 4-
Nose: high pitch hop profile , citric fruits with hazed malty bottom. Not entirely clean. 6+
Flavor/Palate : fairly thin bodied with soapy hop character. Lacking body a bit that shows even more with high carbonation. Bit funky that gives more of an impression of Belgian ale. Finishing dry.
(bottle from presario). Cloudy copper color. Medium off white head. Light spicy hop aroma and flavor, with a very light cleanser aroma. Avg duration. Light bitter finish. Slick texture. Moderate carbonation. Fair lacing. hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2009
Pours a hazy dark orange with a large green/gray head. The aroma is very malty with hops poking their head through as well. Resin, pine-sol, apples, orange and grapefruit rind on the nose. The taste is quite malty, very distinctive maris otter taste (Probably the same Maris OItter that I have used home brewing). Citrus fruit in the finish. Not great, more of an American Pale than an IPA. Macadem (103) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 5, 2009
Smells wet hay, caramel, and hops. Tastes of smoke, burnt grass and burnt sugar (not bad burnt sugar, think creme brulee) Nothing real remarkable here, but definitely a damn decent and tasty IPA. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Thanks savvy1982! Dank, sticky resiny aroma. Scotchish aroma with weed. Woodsy and dry. IPA? Very malty and absent of hops anywhere, especially the finish. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2009
12 oz. thanks, savvy! pours crystal clear dark golden amber. loose tan foam and lace on top. roasty, buttery nose. watery light body. bitter, dark, resiny mid palate. long, dry, woody finish. harsh, raw, and out of balance.
