Notes / Commercial Description:
Our flagship ale. Glowing, ruby-tinged colour. Piney, citrus bouquet. The taste is a finely tuned balance of power, big malts and big hops underpin the beer's high gravity. Dry hopping contributes to No.9's distinctive grapefruity finish. Nine traditional ale malts and Cascade hops.

Dark brown with a slight haze, lots of carbonation, and 3 fingers of light beige head.

Smells of toffee and black tea with a hint of pine and orange.

The taste is very malt forward with only a little bitter and battery acid like quality on the end.

Medium, thick body with moderate carbonation.

I would believe this is wee heavy if told so. If it ever was hoppy, that day is long gone. I got this at LCBO a couple days ago, drinking in New Hamburg, ON, July 14th, 2018.

Nice color, but little head. No evident hoppy flavor. More like a scottish ale in taste and a flat draft beer in feel. Did not meet expectation.

Beer is subjective like art; a good beer is any beer you like and I like this beer. Pours auburn with smallish light head. Light carbonation with a bitter finish. Well balanced

This is an outstanding IPA, the hops are brilliantly balanced, I could see a lot of people trying this and not even realizing it's an IPA because the malts are so strong that they match the hop presence completely, hands down the most consistent IPA i've had from any Toronto brewery.

Pours a dark mahogany with an everlasting tan head. Pretty dark for an IPA. Toasted caramel, black tea, citrus in the nose. The taste is more hop forward with grapefruity, lemony hops mingling with a chocolate malt roasty sweetness. Light carbonation and a medium body. Moderate bitterness coats my mouth for a long time in the finish.

A great IPA - more malt centric than most American IPAs. Very well done, with a lot of great malt flavors and balance. A solid IPA, a bit outside of the mainstream.
