Got a 6 pack of this from LCBO, 330ml bottles. Pours a mid dark amber color, with fizzy head. Aroma is floral, citrus more grapefruit than orange . Taste you get medium bitter, with longer sour/bitter finish. This is not a bad IPA, I get the bitter hoppy parts, but what stands out for me is the grapefruit which I haven’t got from other IPA’s.
Poured clear and golden with a minimal white head, Aroma of citrus and floral hops. Medium bodied, flavour is hoppy grapefruit with a slightly dry, bitter aftertaste. tmalaher (305) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2017 Dark orange, cloudy. Not much foam. Hoppy bitterness predominant, with some citrus and pine. OK, but there are better IPAs Arcanor (421) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
355ml bottle, less then a week fresh. Pour light cooper with a dense but small off white head that vanish and stay on the outer rim. Malt aroma with notes of green resin. Taste of sweet malt, lots of residual sugar. Not enough hops. Long bitter finish with lots of sweetness. DeanF (2469) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 9, 2016
Orange-gold body with good head. (That’s what she said! Ha!) Malty hop aroma, not too bad, not too expert either. Flavour is soft hops and weak hint of malts. Very subdued, preferred the double better. Give this to your friends at the barbeque and keep the strong one behind the bar for yourself. Cinctus (205) - - FEB 6, 2016
Very light flavoured but quite bitter. Strong in that sense and quite tasty. But everything else is fairly bland.

An awesome snappy IPA from Tree brewing! Hazy orange pour with a thin head, no lacing. Notes of pine, bitter hops and some lemongrass spiciness almost. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
355ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Orange in colour with a long lasting large off-white head, excellent. The aroma is of citrus, some pine, light caramel, some toasted malt. The flavour is of light citrus and pine, earthy and toasty, some caramel sweetness. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, good bitterness and hoppy. A nice balanced and highly drinkable IPA. CletusVanDamme (14) - North Vancouve, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2015
The HopHead is an extremely hoppy and flavourful beer, reminiscent of many American IPAs. The HopHead has a nice full body and mouthfeel, without the hoppiness being too overpowering. A fine ale all around.

355 ml bottle. (5.6% ABV) Pours a hazy copper with a medium, off-white head that laces. Sweet, hoppy aroma of citrus, caramel malt and grass. Sweet, fruity flavour of grapefruit, caramel malt, mild resin and grass with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAR 16, 2015
Pours hazy pale to medium amber with a short, short-lived light beige head, spotty lacing. (4/5) Nose is pine, citrus, caramel malt, slightly flowery. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Quite a decent A/IPA. Good balance between hoppiness and maltiness: the malt is quite pronounced, but definitely in a supporting role, and the flavour remains hop-forward. Quite nice. (15/20)
