Looking forward to trying this. Quite enjoyed last years version.

You guys have any plans to make some NE style IPA's like Trillium or Treehouse in the near future?!?


I'd love to see them venture into this style as well considering I'll never get my hands on a Julius.

After the success of Sawdust Juicin, I don't see how they couldn't. A hazy GLB IPA would fly off the shelves.

I quite like it.. it's not the near perfection that last years was though... but, miles better than the one the year before (or, most brewers attempts at such a beer).
looking forward to/worrying about Immodest this year (I'll be heartbroken if Nickelbrook doesn't deliver on my favourite drink of the year).

From the Great Lakes website...

Official Rotating IPA Schedule for LCBO Release 2017

Lake Effect IPA: December to late February
RoboHop Imperial IPA: March to April
Octopus Wants to Fight IPA: March to May
Sunnyside Session IPA: Mid May to September
Karma Citra IPA: September to November


Great news! I'm curious where Thrust! fits in there though, but maybe it'll just appear from time to time as it currently does.

While Sunnyside isn't bad, I just dislike Session IPA's. I'd prefer if the didn't double up Robohop and Octopus in the spring to shorten the gap of May to Sept.

I was pretty hooked on Limp Puppet when it was out. Did Sunnyside simply replace that one?

seems like it. I'm guessing hop prices/availability play a big factor in what gets a major release (which would probably explain the exclusion of thrust).
oh, and, limp puppet wasn't exactly a great brand name to market to the masses!
