Growler from Mill Street Ottawa. Purchased and consumed January 28. Unsure of bottling date. From notes.
A - Poured a dark copper with tons of carbonation. Bright. One finger of white head leaving great lace and good retention.
S - Lot's of citrus, pine, orange and grapefruit with some resiny hops.
T - Pine and resinous hops again. Some slight caramel up front. Very straightforward.
M - Great carbonation, medium body and a bitter bite in the end.
O/D - Nice. Not an overwhelming IPA, but the ABV is masked well, the flavours are strong, and it goes down smooth while keeping you interested. It just lacks some depth.
Serving type: growler

Growler filled at the brewpub on Jan. 26. Review based on first pour, served at 40-45 F in a Mill Street tulip.
Pours a slightly hazy golden-amber colour with a small off-white head that burns off in a few seconds, surviving as a stringy collar without leaving any real lacing behind.
EDIT: Second pour had a much bigger head and rather heavy lacing.
The aroma is typical of an Ontario-brewed IPA. A melange of citrus smells like tangerine and pineapple sit against a sweet caramel-biscuit backing and are accented by a soft cherry-like tone.
The taste has a solid bitterness to it up front. A grapefruit taste washes over the tongue before a thick, toasted bread character takes hold. The bitterness comes back in the finish.
This is a full-bodied ale with just enough carbonation to pop on the front of the tongue. Quite heavy on the tongue with a sort of tea biscuit quality that carries through to the aftertaste where I also picked up a lemony flavour and a hint of pine. A Nice oily residue lingers between sips.
This is a really solid IPA that I'm elated to have available locally and in my opinion the star of the Ottawa-only brews available at Mill Street. I'll be sure to have my growler filled often, it's just a shame that this seems to be a seasonal rather than a year-rounder. Maybe we can change their minds.
