Now this is an IPA I can get behind. Brought it in bulk into my store in anticipation for some tastings later on that month and I managed to grab an extra bottle that had already been bought, but not used. Look out, here comes in the Hop Train. Very grassy and earthy. A nice 'natural' feeling to the hops that gives you that familiar smack of bitterness. Luckily, it has one of my favorite qualities in a beer: bitterness that doesn't linger on your pallet too long. A great, sassy color that seduces you into drinking it and then convinces you to finish the entire pack.

Amazing beer. Great job, Muskoka! Keep up the good work.

a: rich orange with bone-coloured head

s: rich ripe fleshy orange, grapefruit, floral aromas, strong caramel, a bit of pine, bread, brown sugar. really solid

o: a really good and available ontario IPA. could see it as a go-to beer
