look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Deep reddish-amber colour, 1 finger dense off-white head. Aroma is mostly pine/grapefruit, but also with a seemingly hefty sweet caramel malt component. Pleasant, but nothing jumping out at you. Taste is much of the same, but with the citra hops imparting much more tropical fruit. A moderate lingering piney bitterness and sizeable sweet caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied, slightly oily but pleasant. Yet another step in the right direction for Ontario brewers. Definitely the best Ontario AIPA I've tried to date, but still doesn't quite hold a candle to the better stateside options. I'm looking forward to what FM churns out in the future, they haven't let me down thus far!

A - Pours golden brown with two fingers of off white head that retains to a think cap around the glass. Nice rings all the way down.

S - Floral, citrus fruit, malts.

T - Layers of citrus hops, floral, balanced by malts. Good balance and nice bitter mouth feel.

O - Solid offering from Canada. Good I-P - Eh!
