Just had a can from batch J. Different hop presence again. More hops in the aroma and the taste :D

Fans of 'My Bitter Wife' will like this one.

This is getting to be one really good IPA

I think this thread should be under Beer Reviews. I've had this 3 times now and here are my observations about the beer and the price point. C'est What: Regular pint, $5.90 + taxes A very well made beer. Very hoppy and bitter. The 8% ABV shows, but just barely. Well Done Black Oak! Volo: Cask $6.95 ...

What a great beer :D
I like the Brutal Bitter, but this one is quite a bit better.
Wonderful aroma; grapefruit comes to mind. The taste is citrus, with pine on the back end. No sign of alcohol taste.
In my opinion, the hoppiest beer ever to hit the LCBO shelves.

Don't forget the Gold Crown Brewery, downtown Waterloo on King St.

Also, a short drive west, just off Hwy 7/8: Country pubs
In Petersburg: The Blue Moon--lots of Ontario micros and great food
In Baden: The Baden Hotel--more Ontario micros and great food

Here's a 5 or 6 stop tour, easily done with a TTC Day Pass.
Start at C'est What, walk up to Beer Bistro.
TTC to Rebel House, Victory, & Volo.
Possible finish at the 3 Brewers ( since it is very new )

I spent a week in Pittsburgh; saw Crosby, Malkin & the Penguins 3 times. Now, have just returned from seeing the Leafs beat the Penguins and Steelers beat the Ravens. If you like Buffalo, you'll love Pittsburgh. In the Southside Flats: Fat Heads: 40 taps and amazing food. Smokin' Joe's: 60 taps ...

You don't have to go far for Ontario micros on tap.
Both the Baden Hotel and the Blue Moon ( Petersburg) have a great selection of Ontario micros ( from that part of the province ), as well as great food and a country pub atmosphere.

I prefer the ST over the DH, but they are both fine beers. Seems to be lots of DH available in Mississauga. Meadowvale has it cold for you. Does the DH remind anyone of the Tankhouse Ale when it first came out? This summer, I have had the good fortune of tasting Garrison IPA in Halifax , Corne du Di...

Garrison IPA / John Shippey's IPA

According to bartender at The Split Crow, the John Shippey's Left Coast IPA is brewed by Garrison, with a small tweak in the recipe.
Only the John Shippey's was on tap at the Split Crow.
Great brew!

Deuchars IPA

Available at the LCBO as part of the Autumn Ales release.
500 ml can, 4.4 %, Caledonian Brewery
I've had this beer before and enjoyed it as one of the better British Pale Ales.
Seems it has changed this time around, for the better
It can certainly rival some of our locals.
