Bomber bottle pours a clear golden orange with good head. Smells floral and citrusy. Taste is very piney and the chinook really stood out in this ipa. Some slight citrus and grapefruit in there too, but the taste is dominated with chinook. A very easy drinking IPA and its a pleasent suprise coming from Ontario. Regular availability would be nice to see for once in this province. (381 characters)

Bottle dated 4/21/13. Poured in to tulip.

A - Translucent medium orange colour with half a finger of cream coloured head.

S - Piney aroma dominates with some lighter tangerine and grapefruit notes and some sweet caramel coming through int he background.

T - A good bitterness up front but the palate falls short of the nose and is completely one-dimensional pine (as expected, i suppose). A slight caramel malt sweetness is also present.

M - Medium body. Sticky. Light carbonation. (486 characters)

Poured a one finger off white head upon a golden semi clear body, little retention with some sticky lacing - plenty of citrus and pine with some bready malt in the scent, taste follows the nose - oily citrus pine salad - one of the truly best Canadian "American" ipas I have had - hits all the right notes - lingering bitterness with a medium oily body - oh so drinkable - overall a tremendous brew which is now firmly in my rotation - really does hold up against its counterparts south of the border - hit beers of the world on the weekend in Rochester and stocked up on all of their west coast ipas - this stands up well with them - bravo (640 characters)

From notes taken during a tap takeover at Imbibe (Kitchener) last night:

A stunning new Ontario APA. Although have enjoyed several times in the past, this is the best batch I have ever tasted and am delighted to hear it may be entering the LCBO as early as this April. Pours a beautiful golden copper with a decent off-white head and impressive lacing.

Offers an unbelievable aroma of pineapple and pine – all the best of all the “c" hops – truly magnificent for a west-coast hop lover. Flavour is also ideal for a hop lover, with the initial caramelized malt sweetness transitioning into a well balanced bitterness with loads of tropical fruit and citrus hop tones. A slick mouthfeel but not too oily, with enough malt to give it a satisfying body.

6.8% ABV is higher than I'd choose, but this is a truly stunning beer that can proudly stand up beside any Michigan or Californian APA. Well done, Sawdust City! (920 characters)

3.8/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy orange colour, one finger of dense white head, some lace as well. Smell is quite hoppy, lots of citrus and tropical fruits coming out, grapefruit and orange being dominant, hints of biscuity malt, faint butter and a light sugestion of alcohol. Taste is dry and hoppy, mostly citrus fruits but some pine flavours are there, some malty points as well but mostly a hop bomb, there is also a mineral like earthy flavour present as well. Medium carbonation, medium body, fairly oily, drying sensation across the palate. Quite nice asctually, something I will defintley hit up when I see this around. (599 characters)

On tap at WVRST, served in a 1L stein. Freezing cold when it arrived.

Hazy reddish orange with a dense white cap and sheets of lace. Good retention. Nose is wonderful, peach, nectarine, mango. Bright fruity hop notes all around and really juicy. Taste has more mango and juicy tropical fruit hop flavours. A long bitter piney/herbal finish, assertive in terms of bittering. Some sweet malt characteristics intertwined, but hops are the definite focus. Medium feel, and a bit of alcohol, perhaps more of a product of the serving size rather than the beer itself. Appropriate lighter medium carbonation. A substantially bitter IPA, which could be a solid addition to the Ontario scene if this saw greater production. (715 characters)

On tap release party at the Burger Bar, regular tap version. Orange citrus aroma but also a bit funky smell in there. Carbonation right there. Served way too cold. Waited till warmed. A bit astringent. Simcoe, Centennial, and Cascade. Would like more malt backbone, the IBU comes right at you. hop juice, making drinkability somewhat difficult. Good head retention, 3/8" (370 characters)
