4.23/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: very hazy, dull orange, and there's a tinge of orange in the head, which dissipates after a couple minutes

Aroma: stunning exotic fruit - kiwi, mango, peach, even strawberry comes to mind; very juicy and sweet, but a spruce hop scent hovers in the background

Taste & Mouthfeel: the fruit aromas have only lightly carried over into the taste, switching prominence with the bitter spruce hop flavour that was only hinted at in the scent; it's a nice effect, with mild orange, mango and caramelized malt notes initially, quickly giving way to the burning hop bitterness that has great length; medium body and good carbonation with a dry finish, every sip leaves you wanting more

Overall: "spring IPA" is the right moniker, as this beer feels full of energy and acts as a good transition between winter and summer brews with it's higher abv and sprightly flavours; really well done

Bottle. Orange, little hazy with medium white head. Low lacing, medium lasting. The aroma is mainly piney, resin with quite noticable malty profile (biscuits, crackers). Taste is bitter orange peel, bitterness is medium, also some piney and floral flavours. Medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and hoppy. Overall solid IPA - not so bitter and well balanced. Quite good drinkable.

Purchased at the LCBO $7.05 for a 500ml bottle so it's at the top of the beer price scale for IPA's. Served at 8deg C in a draught glass

A- Opened well. Poured a good white head 1" high that tappers out to a film in a minute. Unfiltered.

S- Excellent aroma. Hops hops hops.

T- Excellent. Very hoppy and fruity. Lots of grapefruit.

M- Very good. Dry and tart. Very enjoyable.

O- Very good. Only thing holding it back is definitely the price. Other than that I like it. It's definitely an American IPA made over the pond.

Food Pairing

This nice little IPA went well with... Oysters. Raw on the half shell with a splash of this nice IPA and...

Pours amber with a large, fading head.
Nose shows piny, grassy and resinous hops with a hint of fruit and some sweet clean malt.
Clean flavours, lots of pine and resinous hops, some soft clean malt and an aggressive bitterness.

Bottle: Poured a hazy bright orangey color ale with a nice huge foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus hoppy notes is very enjoyable with nice floral presence. Taste is also dominated by super nice grapefruit notes with some citrus floral hoppy notes with some residual sugar noticeable and almost no bitterness. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Another floral hoppy forward IPA that is very enjoyable even more considering the oversea trip.

A - Pours a gorgeous cloudy honeycomb colour with a smallish white head that reduces and films.

S - Piney citrus, and hop, plenty on offer.

T - Nice hoppy notes with mango, pineapple and citrus. The finish is quite bitter the balance is good.

M - Medium to full body with low carbonation.

O - Great APA. plenty of balance and still plenty of Hop present

500ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $7

Appearance - Gold colour with a large size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Hops, apricots, grapefruit, breads/grains

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste apricot, grapefruit, and malts. There is also hops and a grassy herbal flavour.

Overall - A solid beer. I've only had a few beers from this brewer but they've all been interesting. Price tag is a little high, but well worth it to try it once for sure. The best before of 2016 seems optimistic.

Bottled from the LCBO. A complex EPA (euro pale ale). A fine balance of hops and malts. Smooth and crisp taste- a perfect "spring ipa". The label on the bottle tells a story how the spent grain is used to feed a herd of cattle outside Copenhagen - the herd is so merry when they get the grains that they create a "stampede greater than any seen in Calgary in July." How great is that.

S: Hops, tropical fruits, mango.

T: Hoppy, sour, bitter, slightly malty.

F: Very drinkable, light to medium bodied.

O: OK beer but not a standout my any means.

Pours like liquid gold into the glass while forming a nice two finger white head. Retention holds for a couple of minutes and lacing is persistent.

Very grassy and heavy on the citric fruits.

A nice mixture of citric fruit and bitterness. A bit of earthiness, grass and pine.

Quite carbonated with a medium body, drinks very smooth with a dry finish. Bitterness lingers on the palate.

500 ml bottle purchased from LCBO. Awesome looking bottle and cool name. Plus I'm curious about a spring IPA. Served fairly cold into glassware.

Appearance- gorgeous slightly opaque orange and copper coloured beer is poured. Big white rocky head that's about two fingers and takes its time in receding. Tons of spidery lacing is left all around the glass.

Smell - very spring light live fresh tropical fruits and an earthy undertone as well. Tons of citrus.

Taste - bright and vibrant, quite a bit of fruit with some dank earthiness blended in there. Fairly bitter, but balanced nicely with sweetness, and makes you want to go back for more and more.

Mouthfeel - lively carbonation helps give it a velvety texture. Very smooth and medium bodied, but packs a lot of flavour. On the dry sides in terms of finishes.

Overall - definite understand what the brewer was going after in labelling this a spring IPA since it does suit the season well. To me quite similar to central city's red racer IPA, which happens to be one of my absolute favourites. It's not quite that good but definitely one of the best of the style I've had in a while.
