Pours a golden amber with a medium off-white head, that unfortunately doesn’t last long. Aroma is citrus and resinous hops and sweet malt. Taste is big on the bitter grapefruit and pine resin with a good sweet buiscuit malt to round it out. Body is medium with average carbonation. archer (165) - - SEP 7, 2013
Really nice flavour, not overly hoppy, good colour and nice aroma, definitely worth a try. wkibbler (6) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2015 does not count
Citrus and pine goodness, really enjoy this offering definitely on my fav list. Randy4Beer (515) - - JUL 4, 2014
650ml bottle. Pours a very hazy orange colour. Fairly thick white head that settles down nicely, leaving moderate lacing as drunk.
Aromas are very piney hops, with hints of caramel.
Tastes of citrus, pine, pineapple, and toffee.
Overall, this IPA could go toe-to-toe with many of my favourites in the category, and might upset a few.

473 mL Can. Murky gold body with a 3-finger white foamy head that settles but get prety clingy and blotchy on the sides of the glass. Resiny-grapefruity hops are first in line at the nose, a hint of grass and clover, and the sweet light malts complete the bouquet. The sweet pale malts delight the tongue and then the hops embrace in the aftertaste. Hoppy-bitter linger in the finish. Call it the IPA addiction, call it whatever, but for me it flies quite well.

Can kindly donated by Karol. One of the few beers which hold true to the commercial description. Loads of piney resiny zesty orangey hops flavours, high bitterness, long dry hoppy finish. Carefully balanced by clean crystal caramel maltiness. Easily drinkable. Excellent. GlennHendry (556) - OSHAWA, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2015
Big bursts of grapefruit, along with flowery aromas on the nose. Tastes delicious, with pine, orange and grapefruit. A classic IPA. googleimage83 (172) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
Pine, orange, mango, peach on the nose - high quality. Pours a cloudy maple-orange with large, pillowy and clingy head. Taste is fruity hops, dry citrus, pine, with grainy malt. Finish is long and pleasantly bitter with grapefruit peel. Well balanced, but a bit too heavy for sessioning. Great beer all-around. DanDan_ (83) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2017
UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Can dated Jan. 03 2017: Pours hazy dark orange, thick pillowy retentive white head, lots of big sediment goodies and rings of lacing. Aroma of pine, resinous hops, citrus (orange/grapefruit) bit of tropical fruit (mango/peach). Lots of bitterness with some malt backbone. Full/smooth feel, medium carbonation, and good long bitter dry orange peel finish. Teeters beautifully just on the edge of being a little too much, but has enough body to back it up. Admittedly, I’ve had this many times and never got around to reviewing it, but always enjoy it every time. Tonight it stood up excellently to some hot wings and it’s fruitiness even came out more with dessert.
