Pours a dark yellow with a thick head. Smells like pine, fruit and citrus on the nose. Tastes bitter on the back but hoppy and the smell compliments the taste. A fantastic IPA

On draught. Comes a straw color with a creamy head, good retention and lacing. Nice spicy, pine, citrus hops in the nose and on the palate with just enough malt for balance. A great example of the style.

12 oz bottle into shaker. Pours clear orange-amber with a solid two-finger white head. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is a powerful hop blast: citrus, floral, and pine. A fair amount of caramel and bread malt lies below the hoppy aroma. Taste is medium-high bitterness from citrus peel, pine, and flower hoppiness supported by a nice malty sweet ribbon through each sip. Medium body, slick and creamy, average carbonation, long, bitter finish. Nice to finally drink an archetypal IPA from a bedrock craft brewer.

on tap at bar hop. welcome to ontario, stone. lightly tropical aroma consisting of mango, pine, and some grapefruit. taste follows the nose with a solid bitterness on the back end. hops are the showcase. not getting much malt flavour. medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation. a bitter and unbalanced but hoppy and delicious IPA
