3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Herbal, resinous hops. Clear gold with a rich white head. Hop bitterness right off the bat and throughout, but disappears nicely in the finish. Hops are herbal and this may be to the age as this came out a couple of months ago. Still a refreshing and flavorful APA. Will definitely try for a fresh one next year.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a generous white head that leaves some lace. Nose is grass and pine and light citrus with a bit of pepper. Taste does not quite live up to the nose; nice bitterness that quickly fades to a flowery sweetness and a light dry finish.Light to medium body and mild carbonation make this easily drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (500ml).] Pours a hazy, bubbly gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, grain, light herbs, light hops and some citrus. Flavour of grain, bready malt and earthy hops along with some light herbs and spices and a dry, moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. This is good but this is the 3rd one I try and each time I think "this is nowhere as hoppy as the other ratings suggest", it must just be me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper pour, large white head. Earthy hop aroma, light pine and citrus. Very bready malts. A nice beer but not as great as the ratings im reading. some nice hops,buy overall very earthy and lacks some intensity.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml (or 600?) bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a resilient white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, resin. Flavor is very hoppy, herbal, grapefruity, fresh malt, crisp, vegetables. Finish is very bitter, mostly citrus. Lingering bitterness, resin, pine tree. Medium to strong body, oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. A nice experience.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of floral and grassy hops is very enjoyable and quite powerful. Taste is also dominated by a huge aroma of powerful grassy, green and floral hops with some citrus notes. Malt backbone is present though hardly plays a huge roles considering the amount of hops in this beer. Body is about average with good carbonation. Solid harvest beers with loads of hops and limited bitterness level.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a straw yellow with a thin white cap. The aroma is pine, wet forest floor, cat urine, citrus, maybe some straw and malt as an after thought. The flavour starts with a quick flash of sweetness is quickly replaced with citrus, pine, then a bit of lemon candy. Finish’s crisp and lightly dry. Solid beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours hazy nice golden with a frothy white cap, good retention and lacing. pils, grassy and floral-plenty, pepper and rye-like malts, sulfur, grapefruit and other citrus, tingling ginger, freshly cut grass. moderate carbonation, light body, slightly harsh herbal-grassy-citrusy finish. still a more than decent harvest minus usual ashes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL bottle. Trasparent orange-gold, but almost no head. This is a pale ale in the nose, but verges on IPA in the mouth. The hop flavour fades quickly, though, and there isn’t the bitterness of an IPA. The flavour is certainly there, though, with some resin and some earthiness. Just enough malt that the hops don’t stand alone.
