Hazy gold with a strong head. Citrusy and pine hops on the nose. Firm malt body with more pine hops on the finish. A solid IPA.

This beer pours a hazy amber color with golden highlights. It is topped with two inches of beige head that leaves some nice lacing.

The smell seems balanced between hops and malt. It has some light citrus notes.

The taste starts out with some bread-y malt flavor that is quickly met with bitter grapefruit. The finish is bitter with pine.

Medium mouthfeel

Sadly this is about what I expected after sampling some IPAs at a few Toronto breweries. It has an old school east coast IPA resemblance. But Toronto breweries know their market, and I'm sure this is popular in Ontario. I prefer my Ohio IPAs. Regional bias on my part.

Deep hazy golden color with no activity but misted with yeast. Almost murky. Creamy and lightly frothy beige 3 finger head, lasting around 10-15 minutes, with good legs and swirl reaction. Flavors of pineapples, tangerines, butter, caramel, peppercorn, and herbal hops (galaxy, mosaic). Oily and light creamy medium body with moderate crispy carbonation. Lacks a bit of zest and sharpness. Medium to strong strength finish, dominantly tropical while slightly piney and leafy, also a bit peppery. Good freshness and intensity. Great balance in the flavors and pleasant to drink while still resinous and tongue coating. Overall very good quality craft.
