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 34IBUís, 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).

473mL can from the LCBOh. Pours a pale gold with a small white head. Aroma has some nice citrusy hop zing on top of a really nice, worty malt body. Flavour is malt-forward with some nice sweet barley, honeysuckle, and a mild hop dryness in the finish with descending notes of hop flavour. Somewhat creamy feel on the palate. Over-all not really much hop activity though, which is a bit of a disappointment. Itís a somewhat well-balanced session-ale, but perhaps a bit too tame for the way the Ontario craft beer market is going. Iíd still gladly drink this again though, but itís nothing worthy of serious note.

473ml can from the LCBO. light ornage with a lasting off white head. simple pale ale. not enough late hopping for my tastes. would have been a great beer in ontarios market 5 years ago but we have much better APA options now. scroll past and grab some crazy canuck.

473mL can from LCBO. Pours clear golden with a thick white head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, with a little pepper. Taste is peppery, with a slight bitterness up front, that moves into floral flavours, and finishes up with a moderately bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

Pours a solid orange to amber, with a bubbly creamy head. Citrus on the nose, cilantro even. Full flavour, bitter, true hop head style of beer. Enjoyable.

Tap at Fynnís of Temple Bar. Pours a hazy orange/gold. Pretty carbonated. Bubbly cream head. Aroma is mildly hoppy citrus (no pine) and bready, with orange, honey and a little cinnamon. Medium body. Not overly flavourful. Mild caramel malt up front, with a medium finish of lemon, grass and a bit of mineral. Little hint of coke or root beer. Warms well. Nice little standby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

not a great american pale but its alright. hops taste present, no fancy complexity or anything - wouldnt rate it very high against other us pales.

On tap at The Burger bar, golden-amber-copper color, with a white head, nice fruity, piney, leafy, floral hop nose, with some faint toasted, caramel, biscuity malt note, and some citrusy, lemon, grapefruit english hoppy accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp earthy flowery, leafy, grassy, piney, hop character at first, with a zesty, lemon, grapefruit peel, cedary backbone, and a light biscuity, toasty maltiness undertone, leading towards a nice leafy, grassy, piney, citsusy hop bittering finish.

Decent and very drinkable beer. Nice balance of prominent malt character with a good, american-style hop profile. Not hoppy enough for an IPA or APA in my mind but nice.
