one of the best ipas out there especially on tap wich i used to drink at a place called coney island until they kicked me out for something my brother did. not a very friendly place with the bartenders wanting outrageous tips. plus the women bartenders think they know everything. telling me stuffs brand new when i bought cases of it 4 months earlier. get a fresh bottle and you won't be dissapointed. stay away from c. island in slippery rock unless you wanna be talk to like you don't know ne thing

Super stoked to receive this from joemcgrath27 and even more stoked to find out that I can grab a few more locally after a recent release that hit the LCBO.

A - Pours a nice golden colour with a copper hue, finger of head with decent retention and some sporadic lacing.

S - Nose is dominated by sweet citrus, pineapple, and a hint of caramel.

T - The pineapple and citrus hop notes dominate alondside a heavy doe of bitter leafy greens that linger alongside the caramel malts. There's a touch of Thrills gum flavour with a hint of citrus rind of the finish.

M - Medium bodied, smooth, and a touch of dryness.

O - Delicious hop bomb that loads up the palette with fresh citrus and pineapple hop flavours. This stuff is fantastic and is by no means underrated. I'm hopeful that this brew becomes a regular locally, because its certainly one of my favourites among the style.

A: Amber color. Clear. Fluffy off-white head. Darker than many in this style.
S: Bright fresh citrus, especially grapefruit. Caramel malts.
T: Some malt sweetness. Sight tartness. Fairly clean finish.
M: Medium body, on the lighter side for IPAs. Creamy texture without oiliness. Medium carbonation.
O: Well balanced IPA. Would be interesting to do a side-by-side comparison with my other favorites, like Alesmith and Russian River.
