This was probably the best thing that I had at Maxwell Plum’s. It isn’t an amazing IPA or anything, but it is a more than solid example of the style. Nice stuff.
Pours amber with a frothy, light tan head. Aroma of pine, caramel, citrus rind, bubble gum. Taste is fairly malty up front with a lot of caramel, nicely balancing out a firm, clean hop finish. This is one of the best Canadian IPAs I’ve had! HipHopOpotamus (233) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
It is a decent good beer but just didn’t have that extra bit of taste I get from other IPA’s. Little bit of a disappointment. Freaky_tiki (1274) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2013
Well if this isnt all burnt sugar & bubblegum taste. Hops are bright -- & make lager boys blush from what I can see down the left side of the bar -- but without the punch that you’d want from your ipa. Reminds me of spearhead Moroccan brown -- which is odd -- but there it is. kevinsenn (2236) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. Hazy gold. Aroma: peach and pine. Taste: pine, fruits, medium-bitter finish. An relatively easy-drinking IPA, nothing wrong with it.

Weak grassy scent. Light golden pour with a bubbly head. Very easy to drink. Doesn’t have that IPA bite. Neutral on this one. I’m guessing most pale ale fans won’t like this one much Hungarian_G (90) - - APR 26, 2013
Slightly cloudy copper pour with tan head. Heavy nose of resinous hops and roasted malts, with some earthiness. Nice hop bitterness, again, lots of piney flavours, and well balanced subtle sweetness. Nice bitter finish.

Lots of flavour in this beer. Very sweet with lots of hops on the tongue. Smooth bitter aftertaste. Nice beer to try but very intense taste that could make you sick fast. neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
11.5 oz bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours clear amber with a moderate tan head that remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of pine and toasty malts along with resin and citrus. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout with notes from the nose along with subtle caramel toasty malt sweetness. The finish is moderate in length with a mild grassy hoppy bitterness. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall this is a decent piney, resinous IPA in the English style. Subtle and tasty, very well brewed. 2013-03-11 probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2013
341 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Slightly hazy deep amber with a small off-white head.
Aroma: Lots of sticky caramel, some butterscotch, floral and resinous hops, lemony citrus, almost brothy, slightly peppery, a little dusty/musty, a bit fruity, a little too malt-forward for my tastes.
Palate: Medium+ body, moderately prickly effervescence.
Flav.: Some pine/resin hops, mild citrus zing, still plenty of caramel malt, a touch dank and a bit fruity, less broth/dust than the nose, alright; dry with pretty good bitterness and a fairly nice pine/resin/floral hop finish.
Not perfect for my palate, but pretty good.
