A full bodied golden Pale Ale which pours with a linen white medium density head leaving spider web lace on the glass. On the palate the flavour is sweet fruity malts up front (apricot, mango) with a bit of candy, and slight grassy notes which fall away to reveal a hint of biscuit with rather pleasant grapefruit and perfume undertones. This is a hop bomb, there is no doubt. To the nose there is a mild malt aroma which accentuates the robust floral bouquet which is derived from the hops.

Medium full bodied ale with pleasant lingering hop finish.

Crockett (1115) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Pours clear honey gold with a big fluffy white head. Citrus nose, with sweet grass and hay notes. Flavour is has some nice bitter rounded notes. Very light body. Palate is overtly simple. Mildly citric and piney hops, sitting on top of a cheerio cereal scented bulk. But the overall finish is very grainy and unclean.

Unfiltered orange in appearance with a medium white head that leaves little lacing behind. Aromas are of oranges soaked in caramel. Tastes are similar. A decent balance of caramel malts and citrus hops, but unfortunately both are lackluster, and fail to pop in the nose or on the palate. This came as part of the Railway City Holiday Gift Pack, but Id never buy it again as an individual beer.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
473 ml can from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a clear light copper colour with a couple fingers of dense white head with great retention. Leaves a fair bit of lacing.

Aroma: Pine, hops, straw, bit of malt.

Flavours: Grapefruit, pineapple, yeast, granny smith apples, bit of biscuit.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and thin with moderate carbonation.

Overall: A decent IPA with the typical citrus aromas and grapefruit flavour. This one is a bit bitter and thin for me to really like it but it is quite drinkable.

500ml bottle from the LCBO in Stratford, Ontario. Clear golden amber in colour with a thin dissipating white head, some light patchy lacing. The aroma is grainy, some sweetness, floral with just a bit of orange citrus. The flavor is moderately sweet, some bitterness, orange citrus, light grapefruit, toasted pale malts. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes medium length, some bitterness and citrus. Its just okay to me.

HippyHop (611) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
This is one of several beers Ive tried lately that seem to be better than I remember. Pour is clear gold with a clean white cap that sticks around just as long as a good party guest should. Nose is faint, but pleasant. Bread, apricot, citrusy/floral hops and a bit of pine. Taste is bready malt with a touch of fruity sweetness, with some light lemon/orange. This stuff is surprisingly carbonated, a bit thin, and the finish isnt quite as bitter as Id like, but overall its still better than I remember (I believe they call that damning with faint praise).

Raistlin (371) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2014
Not so bad considering its IPA, or its suppose to be, but not my favorite at all. Pours clear amber, white head. Nose is heavy on the crystal malt, with citrus hops in the background. Flavour is again mostly crystal malt with some floral, mineral water.

sudomorph (1133) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
473ml can. Pours a clear, golden/caramel with a one finger, eggshell head. Aroma has smooth notes of pine, resin, lemon, citrus, and a bit of fruityness. Pretty good. Taste is bitter forward with floral notes, orange citrus, pine, resin, and a drawn out, citrus/bitter aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. A bit thin in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall netters than I was expecting. Good flavours of citrus, pine, and a touch of resin.
