473ml can at Brothers Beer Bistro. Pours a huge frothy creamy head that sticks around for quite awhile. Leaves behind some thick dirty lacing. Has an amber coppery appearance. Aromas of floral hops, citrusy and grassy notes. Flavours are very citrusy, lots of piney and floral hop notes. Bready malts. Not very bitter actually, quite smooth and slick, maybe from lemon peel hints. Very good retention. Excessive carbonation. Good stuff. blankboy (7968) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
[Draught at Indie Alehouse] Pours a hazy dark copper-gold with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Lots of lacing. Pleasant enough hoppy aroma, fruity and resiny -- a touch mild but nice. Flavour’s fruity and hoppy, a bit sweet and malty and a touch bready. Long-ish moderate bitter finish. Average bodied. Nothing special, just a fine IPA. mabel (10011) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2015
[7910-20151102] Tap. Super orange syrup grain and light fragrant evergreen needles aroma. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter grainy orange syrup flavour has a nice sweet bitter finish. Medium-full body. Very tasty. (8/4/8/4/16) 4.0

En fût au Brothers Beer Bistro. Ambrée, mousse blanche. Un peu de caramel, houblons résineux et un peu d’agrumes. Surprenante en fait, bel équilibre, grande buvabilitée. Lubiere (14429) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2015

Ok imperial session.ops still there but sour in finish which fagian at only cafe says is the Crystal malt. Ok.very lacy. A bit below other Sawcity beers. robinvboyer (4849) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2015
Big pine Aroma, with loads of citrus too. Chewy malts, bready, with good cereals. Oily mouth feel, good carb. Lemon peel comes through in the end with a solid lemon oil/zest flavour with some big Green leafy hop aromas. Nice stuff. I also enjoy the shot they take at the session Ipa style.

Can from brewery. Pours deep copper with a thick one finger cap. Interesting triple threat of pulsing hops, chewy malts & the lemon peel finish. Everything is intricately balanced-- except for powder blue label & that award winning moustache. A crisp ipa. I love the imperial session IPA mock-style. Anyone who follows my reviews (all 2.6 of them) knows the session ipa style gives me emotional hemorrhoids & turns me into a cranky old man (get off my lawn!) so im is enjoying seeing this beer take the piss out of it. Recommended if you can get your grubby hands on this one-off.
