pintbypint (3328) - Edmonton, Alberta, - MAR 28, 2013
341ml brown bottle. 5.5% abv on the label. Medium gold pour, crystal clear. Small white cap that thins out a bit, a few streaks of lace here and there. Nose has oranges, trace spice and fruitiness. Taste has fruity/orangey hops and some light bready malt. Light bitterness with some orange peel/citrus sticking around. Average mouthfeel and carbonation. Overall a surprisng experience - first that Keith’s is making single hopped beers, and second that I enjoyed this and wouldn’t mind having it again.

Lubiere (12935) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2016
An orange amber ipa with a thick collapsing mocha head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light grassy floral hops, reminiscent of the west coast, OK. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with light resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, light cloying sweetness, but I was expecting worse. Can from LCBO.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2016
473ml can. Deep golden orange in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is light hopped with lots of caramel sweetness. The flavour again has a bit of hops but the caramel is just too much. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet. Too much caramel in this. Its close.

Franckg (1223) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2016
Robe jaunâtre avec un mince filet de mousse. Arômes de citron oublié 2 jours sur le comptoir, gazon, orange et malt caramelisé. En bouche, houblons moches, citron, feuilles mortes, caramel brûlé et levures. Aucune trace de Cascade. Texture huileuse et corps mince.

Tranquillity (1875) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2015
Canned at a blue jays game. Slightly hazy, huge off-white head. Aroma hoppy but plastic. The cascade flowery aroma is missing. The taste is fresh, not strong hops for an iPa but the finish is decent.

kaser (5681) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Can at blue jays stadium. Mild hops and a little bitter. Fruity and malty. This and the galaxy aren't much different

crossovert (11398) - Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2015
473ml can. Clear golden pour, soapy industrial-looking head. Sweet aroma, vague hops. Flavor is spicy, almost cinnamon, no malt, interesting taste actually, not the worst.

Bamsen78 (5062) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours nearly clear amber with airy off-white head. Mild but clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of hops and yeast and touches of needles. Bitter, hoppy flavour with sweetish notes of yeast and malt and notes of needles. Rough aftertaste with estery and mildly bitter notes. The best beer of the brewery’s hop series but still far from the ideal.

yngwie (16518) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2015
Can. A clear, dark golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white to light beige head. The aroma is weak, quite malty, with bread and some caramel notes. Fruit caramel orange style too. There should be more bitterness I think, as it’s too bready on the palate, medium to full-bodied and semi-sweet. Some orange zest and a fruit caramel hint as well. Medium length orange and bread finish. A decent beer, but it’s too focused on the malts and not enough on the hops in my opinion. 150615

ComradeK (1145) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2015
341ml bottle. Pours an attractive clear ruby, with a moderate light beige head, which lasts reasonably well without leaving much lacing. Resiny citrus hops and biscuit malt make for an appealing aroma. Citrus and mild tropical hops up front lead into a decently malty mid-palate, with biscuit and light nutty flavours. More citrus hops give it a nice clean finish. I might be going against the grain here, but I actually found this to be a pretty enjoyable APA.
