Hop Heads rejoice! This naturally carbonated, unfiltered I.P.A is loaded with citrus and pine aromas from a continuous hopping technique that our brewers use to create this one of a kind beer. Amarillo hops and a complex malt bill are used to create a balanced body with a large hop character giving way to a unique taste experience.

473ml can into nonic. date code almost completely smudged off but i remember reading the other cans in stock at the LCBO and it was like D0114 or something so i'm gonna guess that means they were canned on april 1, 2014. enjoyed on may 22, 2014

a: clear copper with tons of floating particles. two fingers of head

s: big pine and tropical fruit notes up front. grapefruit and orange peel afterwards. caramel malt on the back end. nice

t: follows the nose. extremely dank pine up front, followed by modest grapefruit, orange, slight lemon, and big pineapple notes. the bitterness kicks in a bit too early. the malt backbone introduces itself mid-palate and hangs around for quite a while, becoming tastier as the beer warms, though the finish is still bitter and dry with lingering pine from early in the tasting. somewhat unbalanced but the flavours are very nice

m: medium-bodied, very creamy. great carbonation

o: the top of the can reads "over the top hops" and that's far from a lie. try this out if you dig pine bomb IPAs. a very solid brew but i'd take a number of ontario IPAs over this one

Can to glass

Appearance - Pours a cloudy farm orange/amber colour with a great white head that leaves great lacing

Smell - Pine and citrus smells. Hops really come through

Taste - Hoppy, pine, citrus, grapefruit, alcohol is smooth. All the flavours are really well blended together. One doesn't overpower the other.

Overall - Good beer and a well balanced IPA. Nothing special but not bad by any means

Strong IPA, very hoppy (alittle too hoppy honestly), but that's advertised on the box "over the top hop's!".

A - Golden, look's great!

T - very hoppy, if your not into that stay clear. Citrus, and hop's dominate.

M - smooth, for having a high alcohol content you wouldn't know it.

O - Too hoppy for me, but the great appearance and smooth drinkability slightly redeem it, however for the price this is a one time buy.
