Nice golden colour with good head and some lacing. Hoppy, but not overwhelming. Lots of citrus flavours (grapefruit). Finishes smooth. Very drinkable. Sixthload (1) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2015 does not count
Golden colour and strong citrus and hop aroma. Light head, not to foamy. Stupendous beer on a hot day when in an ice chilled glass. Canmoore (483) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2016
Pours a clear honey colour, with a creamy head and good lacing. Aroma has notes of citrus, pine, and biscuits. Tasting notes include citrus, resin, more biscuits, and a nice bitter finish. Very well made IPA! Gluepot (640) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2016
A well laced white head on a golden body. The nose features honey, citrus and sweet malt. A really solid middle of the road IPA. The hops are engaging without being overpowering, featuring some lemon, melon and other tropical elements. Chewy biscuit malt and that touch of honey round it out. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2005
Draft @ brewery. Golden orange body, moderate white head. Mild resiny aroma, touch of maly and green hops. Bitterness is sufficient but not quite enough for the hardcore hophead. Quaffable, grassy notes with muted resin and a grapefruity puckering bitterness in the finish. Average to medium palate. (3+/4) Very nice beer. I look forward to seeing this one evolve over different batches. Picked up a few bottles to bring home.

Bright golden-bronze colour. Light and clean with a good dose of English hops in the nose. Woody, leafy hop character with light baguette notes and background fruitiness (kiwi, pear). Not really a classic IPA but it is a pretty good beer. turg (156) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2006
Bottle 650 ml. Appearance: Deep golden with small tan head. Aroma: sweet toasty malts, hops, citrus. Flavor: toasty malt, floral hop. Thank OKbeer. pootzboy (1739) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2006
Displays a deep orange amber in the glass...frothy 2 finger white cap with good retention and lacing.
Aromas of sweet bread and citrus.
Medium bodied decent malt spine, bright citrusy character, slick mouth feel.
Up front a rush of sweet crystal malts which are quickly balanced off with ample grapefruit and pine tastes from some 60 min. boil warrior and dry hopped amarillos ( great hop blend)....finish is wet and pleasantly bittering with a bready/metallic aftertaste.
A good solid craft IPA that sits somewhere between the milder session IPAs and the exterme hop bombs....goot hoppy character rich malts and decent drinkability.

3/4" head on gold beer. Smells right, spruce. Light body. Nice malty beer with juicy hop flavour. The juiciness reminds me of Scarlet’s Fire without the intensity. Enjoyable ESB, perhaps not an IPA. Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2008 From bottle. Rich fruity aroma, slight hoppy feel. Clear golden appearance with a thin frothy head. Rich fruity flavour, fresh feel. Tangy finish.
I have to say the more I drink this IPA the more I like it. Its not really near my favourite, but its good. More flavoursome than the pale ale for sure.
