COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hybrid US/UK pale ale.
With an abundance of hops and a sweet caramel backbone, this is a true session beer. A grassy, nutty and flavourful malt body is balanced by citrusy hops and a touch of spice. Clocking in at 34IBU’s, this beer is just bitter enough to keep the hopheads coming back without being crushingly dry or astringent.

Note: Also available dry hopped as Augusta Ale Extra Hoppy (AAXH).

DerWeg (1485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
Rated version cask AAXH - "Augusta Ale Extra Hoppy" from hops added to cask. "We recently decided to try three new hop combinations for our most recent batch of cask – Citra, Amarillo and Saaz." - August 2012. Well this cask pint is mellow and rounded with nice alefruit, no English mustiness, and a pleasant zing of citrus and lightly bitter hops. AAXH deserves the session ale qualification even at 5.5% because it’s gorgeously drinkable and still full-flavored enough that I don’t drain my glass in five minutes like water. At The Only Café, Danforth and Donlands Toronto.

473 mL can. Pours a dark yellow, with a modest head that lasts. Nicely carbonated. Aroma of some pine. The mouth feel is fairly carbonated, some flavor of hops. Long, bitter, finish. But it's not all that pleasant. On balance this is not a bad beer and is certainly a good effort for Canadian ale. Not sure I would order again, though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Freaky_tiki (480) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Pours a finger & a half cap that breaks to foamy cavities but I was on my 5th or 6th beer (see my ratings tonite) when I poured so it could be my technique. May not have the body of a starlet but this beer has character.

BreWedge (299) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
473 ml can. Pours a clear yellow but with a suspended haze (hmmmm) and a large short-lived white head. Aroma is musty, some wood, grain, and a touch of spice. Tastes are dry grainy malt, slight hop bitterness and a touch of alcohol. Mouthfeel is chalky with a medium bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

500 ml bottle purchased at the LCBO on Rideau and King Edward (Ottawa) on January 5, 2013. Honey blonde, little head. Hoppy aroma of herbs, a metallic note. Taste of green herbs, menthol candy, slightly hoppy, bitterness of medicine! What the hell was that?

carbinaded rusty orange 2 finger head. smells of citrus and hops and fruit. It taste of a fruity citrus earthy hope bit refreasing ale but has a heavy feeling and strong hop bit.
