My all time favorite 5 o´clock beer! Good drinkability, nice hop aroma. Well balanced! Brewnoser (28) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2005
Only in a large double bottle for now. Amber/copper colour, head retention good.
Nose of some fruity yeast and citrusy form hops, British hops (guess Goldings?, but maybe also some Willamette Fuggles, and I think something else from the West Coast)
Full body, indicative of the 6.5% abv, with excellent balance of hop/malt that is its strength.
In the British IPA style of yore, perhaps. Rich, balanced, hoppy, an above average beer that does not allow the hop acids to burn (I’m guessing around 50 BU’s), but keeps it balanced with malt.
Probably the best commercial beer ever bottled in Nova Scotia.

Excellent, well balanced IPA. First REAL bottled IPA in Atlantic Canada. Screw you, Keith’s! omhper (25117) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2007
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Golden colour, rich head. Powerful aroma of lychee-like hops. Sweet and aromatic with cottony seemless hop flavour balanced by some cookie malt. Long bitter finish. Lovely aromatic IPA. gegwilson (3702) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle sourced from the brewery by the lovely Ellen & Malcolm. Pours amber with a big foamy head. Quite sweet at first with notes of caramel and biscuit before a lovely bitter hoppy finish with a blast of tropical fruit and just a nice amount of alcohol. A very nice IPA.

Really good IPA. Maybe not the best IPA as it feels like there is more to give in hoppiness and bitterness. Although as good an IPA as anything else I have tried. albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 6, 2005
Bottle. Best IPA in the Maritimes. Copper color with small creamy off-white head with some lace as well. Aroma is fresh, bright citrusy hops. Sweet white cake & malty taste followed by a wonderfully bitter grapefruit hop aftertaste. Very well done & much better than I expected.

I had this beer on tap at the release party. Finally we have a winner in Halifax! I think this is just what the city needs in a beer to pull people over to craft beer.
Clear and copper color under a strong off white head. Citrus aroma is a caution to the 52 IBU’s inside. This beer could stand to be dry hopped in the future as the aroma diminished slightly.
Great malty flavour with a well balanced fistfull of Amarillo and Magnum. This beer is a keeper! Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2007
0.65 l bottle. Copper color with long lasting head. Sweetish, flowery, lemony and fruity aroma with notes of blackcurrant. Malty, bittersweet, honeyish, flowery-fruity and perfumed flavor. Nice soft carbonation. Excellent high quality IPA. fiulijn (20493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2007
