Upside is our first widely available IPA that we launched in 2017. Before that, all of our IPA’s were only available as a series of rotating small-batch releases and seasonals. When we finally landed on the recipe for Upside, it was clear that we’d finally found that perfect juicy IPA that we wanted to revisit again and again.

Upside is a New-England style IPA that uses Vermont yeast and loads of dry-hopping to create a hazy IPA with massively juicy citrus notes. We use four different hop varieties: Citra, Cascade, Centennial, and Amarillo. Citra and Amarillo contribute the huge tropical fruit notes of grapefruit, peach, and mango while we use Ontario-grown Cascade for a hit of juicy orange and local Centennial hops for bittering. We intentionally have a touch more bitterness than some similar New England style IPA’s because we want that slightly bitter and refreshing hop kick on the finish.

To punch up those bright hop notes we ensure this beer has a creamy and smooth mouthfeel from the use of Vermont-style yeast and a malt bill including higher amounts of wheat and oats. The result is a hazy IPA that hits all the right notes with huge tropical hop character upfront and juicy citrus notes on the finish.

As with most IPA’s, freshness is key, which is why we’ve always got a tank of Upside IPA on the go. Be sure to drink this one fresh and keep an eye out for this tasty IPA available across Ontario!


The Upside is an unfiltered India Pale Ale, inspired by New England style IPAs. It’s super juicy with a burst of tropical fruit flavours to start off with, a complex malt profile in the middle that offers a smooth creaminess. Finally it finishes with fresh citrus and strong hoppy notes. The Upside pairs beautifully with spicy herbaceous foods that match it’s complexity.

The perfect companion for spicy, salty, sweet and sour Thai dishes. Out of this world paired with spicy green mango salad or Spicy Thai Noodles. This IPA fans the flames at first, then cools them in the end. Sweet tropical fruits abound when paired with Mango salad and the bitterness in the hops amplies a salty, citrus, umami flavour found in Thai foods.

Also wonderful paired with rich and creamy butter chicken or spicy, salty Spanish Chorizo. The pairing possibilities are endless with the Upside!
