One of the best beers available in Canada. The beer has a very rugged "outdoor" taste and the first mouthful is a strong reminder that this is not a typical beer you buy at the beer store. Strong sweet citrus taste at first that quickly reveals a hoppy flavour that fills your mouth and lingers for quite some time. The beer almost has a warming quality to it and it tastes great after a cold night. The slightly sour undertones remain in your mouth and the more you drink the more you become accustomed to the taste as your pallet gets used to it. Surprisingly refreshing the more you keep drinking and by the end you will be wanting more. Drink from a class for optimal smell and flavour, great beer for a night around the campfire or to have after shovelling snow. Refreshing with the perfect balance of hop, citrus and a flavour i cant really explain. I will keep buying as long as it is available!

Re-reviewing this one after drinking it a fair bit lately.
A - Poured a nice copper colour with a two finger fluffy white head. Bits in suspension. Good carbonaiton, good lace rings, and a finger of retention.
S - Piney, pineapple core, citrus. Pleasant.
T - Quite piney. Citrus and pineapple. A bit less strong than the aroma, but enjoyable and the pine comes out nicely.
M - Good bitterness, good carbonation, medium body. Good feel to it.
O/D - A pretty drinkable and enjoyable IPA. Upon first trying this I enjoyed it, but after a few years of drinking it, I realize its quality and recognize its importance in the Ontario brewing scene.

Review from notes from the summer.
Pours copper with a frothy off white head that lasts a good while. Lace chunks drape the glass on the way down. Pine and floral hops mix with specialty malt roastyness in the aroma. The taste is of pine and white grapefruit hops - a big bitterness up front - and a roasty, caramelly malt flavor. The hops dominate and have a bit of a coarse bitterness and a lack of aromatic subtlety. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a prickly, moderate to high carbonation level. The finish is moderately bitter with some chocolate malt sweetness.
A nice IPA with a big hop presence, but lacking in hop aroma and juicyness. The use of lots of dark malts also distracts a bit from the hoppiness. Still worth a try, especially on tap.
