On tap at the Brewpub. Gorgeous aroma of grapefruit, lemons, and just any citrus you can think of. Not much malt to speak of, just enough to balance the hops, and make them not too over powering. The hops are huge, and incredibly drinkable. This beer has an incredible drinkability, but also a huge dose of great cirtus hops. loved it.

Can from brewery store. Pours clear amber with white head that leaves lacing. Smells like pine resin, dank hops, some citrus. Taste is all hops with a nice bitter finish. I found it hard to pick out the malt. Reminds me a bit of Boneshaker, but much less malty. Really good stuff.

Tapped at the Amsterdam Brewhouse. Overall a great bitter hops North American pale ale! Gloden copper brown color. Aroma malt backbone, mild bitter aromatic hops in the front. Taste is malt, hops, biscuits, some bitter fruits. Not a compelx beer but itís refreshing, bitter and damn tasty!

Tap at the Brewery Market. Deep amber pour with a tight off-white head. The aroma is great. Loaded with juicy citrusy hops and an almost tropical component as well. The malt base has a lovely softness but manages to remain dry. No apparent crystal malt but isnít all pale malt in the base. Moderate bitterness that balances the malt well. This was the first keg to kick and itís not hard to see why. Delicious.

May 10, 2013 - on gravity cask at Corks. Wow, all the times I have had this, I havenít put a rating in yet? shame on me. Hazy orange-amber with a solid creamy/frothy beige head. Smells of resin and grain/wheat gluten - very lush, some alcohol. Taste follows, a bit sweet, quite malty, peach and floral notes. Average body, mild carbonation (but okay for gravity cask), medium-length finish, emerging grapefruit pith coating the palate, a bit astringent too - better on tap, IMO. (cask score 7-3-7-3-15=3.6)

Spab (2295) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
Growler from the brewery. Pours a clear orange colour with good-sized, somewhat creamy, slightly off-white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroms is vibrant citric hops and pale malts. Flavour is fairly strong catty, citrusy hops and pale malts. Quite fresh.

Lubiere (9770) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2013
A golden amber ale with a thin creamy mocha head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with loads of pungent floral and resinous hops, with meaty and catty notes and faint sulfur. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with oily mouth feel, resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, classic. On tap at Arrow and Loon.

[4339-20120318] Tap. Woody citrus peat aroma has a bit of toasted evergreen. Slightly hazy, amber brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Bitter peaty citrus wood continues in the flavour with a hint of cat pee. Medium-full body. Tasty and bitter, just a touch too much pee-like notes but quite good. (7/3/7/4/15) 3.6
Overheard: "Itís nice."

Really great PA, aroma is a little on the light side but big hop hit at the start that is not as bitter as you first think. Well balanced with clean finish. Best ting about this beer is you want another when you are done.
