341 mL bottle, chilled and poured into a pilsner glass
Appearance- Pours a clear and light amber colour with about a pinky finger worth of white head that quickly dissipates to an above average ring around the glass leaving minimal to no lacing throughout till finish.
Smell- pine and resiny hop aromas right away the second this one is even opened you get a nice whiff of it mixed with a mild citrusy fruit smell as well. There is also a sweet aroma in the nose that I can’t really put a finger on as to what it exactly is, almost like a bubblicious bubble gum smell, but it adds a nice change to the typical IPA.
Taste- Again really a lot like the aromas, the tastes come through with a strong pine and resiny hop flavour right off the bat, bitter but not overly bitter like some IPA’s can be, and again balanced with a nice citrusy grapefruit flavour as well. Even on the palate I am getting that sweet flavour again, much like what I would say a sweet bubblicious bubble gum flavour.
Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied this is an excellent ale that has a nice bitter taste to it but remains crisp, smooth, and almost too easy drinking, not overly carbonated but it sustains a thin white top to it right till the end.
Overall- There is pretty much only one word to describe this beer and it is; wow. I can’t believe something this good is actually brewed in Ontario! It is about time that we took a couple good steps towards catching up on what the rest of North America has been doing for years. I have drank some of the best IPA’s that this continent has to offer and to be honest with you, this is right along those lines as being in those categories, I mean it’s no pliny or double trouble, not even as good as a two hearted, but again it is a positive step in the right direction, I would say “One small step for IPA lovers, one giant leap for Ontario”. I am definitely picking more of this up tomorrow, this will be my go to this summer, finally I don’t have to drink to Michigan for a great IPA, it’s right in my backyard!
