Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2010 Sweet citrus hop aroma. Bubbly murky orange with big white foamy head that laces as it thins. Bittersweet citrus, buttery malt & pine, back-of-the-throat bitter, piney aftertaste.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Pours cloudy, tansluscent orange with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, hay, barley, dry hops, dry soil, earth and almond. Fuller bodied with a really great, carbonated mouthfeel and a sort of heavy, warming finish. Outstanding IPA.

Hazy gold with thick creamy head. Very woodsy, resiny hop flavor and aroma. Fluffy mouthfeel, nice even bitterness.

Bottle. Hazy orange yellow. If I say it smells like orange chewable baby aspirin, I mean that somehow as a compliment. Heavy, citrusy hops with the evergreen aroma deeply submerged, but there. Im starting to think Ive got the Amarillo hops aroma and taste pegged, but well see. Whoa, flavor like a gut-punch to the tongue - emphatic and viscous. Bitterness on the exhale. Not as sweet as it looks or smells . Herbal flavor. I like it like I like any aggressive IPA.

keepersj12 (3081) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Fantastic grapefruit aroma from an amber pour with a big fluffy head. Robust flavor with a big hop kick. Nice and peppery with the pine, citrus resins. Very dry finish and a nice bitter after taste. Keep em coming.

garthicus (2916) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 28, 2009
Bought from the LCBO. Appearance: Glorious cloudy orange with a proud off white head. Nice. Aroma: Floral and vanilla with a cheeky amount of pine & malt hiding in there too. Smells really nice and as Tupalev says below, weve been crying out for this in Ontario for too long. Flavour: medium to strong bitterness with lots of pine goodness that makes my lips smack together. This has a nice long bitter finish and is very enjoyable.

rags2rags (149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2009
22 oz bottle poured into shaker; cloudy dark golden color with a thick creamy head that stays for a little bit, but surprisingly didnt lace much. Aroma is fruity, floral, and hoppy like any decent IPA. Taste is grapefruity and a little spicy. The same flavor lingers on the palate. This beer doesnt do anything wrong, but its nothing spectacular.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2009
Bottle LCBO. This is exactly what we have been asking the LCBO to bring in for years and in turn, what we have been asking Ontario brewers to make. The LCBO jumped first and I congratulate them for it. Dark yellow, creamy white head, looks great. Aroma is all grapefruit, juicy, lovely. Taste is really nicely grapefruit bitter up front, really juicy with a wicked grapefruit linger. All is held together with a well carbonated medium body with just the right amount of malt. What an awesome IPA, especially after two decent but nowhere in this league Ontario dry hopped pale ales.

pootzboy (1694) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2009
22 oz bomber Re Rate of new formula Pours a hazed golden ale with a puffy 2 finger cap that lasts and laces. Aroma of intense ruby grapefruit and caramel malts. Smooth mouth feel, big malts and grapefruit hops in the front, back side mellows goes a tad bready with resinous bittering. Great West coast IPA ...a classic.
