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).

Papillon (366) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
473 mL Can. Yellow-gold body with a thin white foamy head leaving lots of spotty lace. Resiny hops dominate in the aroma with notes of grapefruit rind and crystal malt, and a hint of pepper. The flavor is a nice balance of sweet malts and resiny "grapefruit rind" hops with subtle fruity notes of melon and citrus. Nice bitter almost peppery hop aftertaste tapering off to a light caramel finish. Bold, yet refreshing and not too imposing. This is some top-notch ale

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
Tap at Burger Bar. Pale golden pour with a thick tight head. The nose is fresh and hoppy. Bright orange and grapefruit citrus over a very clean crackery pale malt base. Fresh and crackery with a nice bright malt expression. Really damn tasty.

DerWeg (1492) - 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 Ė 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 itís gorgeously drinkable and still full-flavored enough that I donít drain my glass in five minutes like water. At The Only Cafť, Danforth and Donlands Toronto.

Gorbalev (2912) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
On tap at Burger Bar and in cans from LCBO. Dark yellow, small white foamy head. Fruity hop and malt aroma. Taste is very good - generously fruity hopped over a medium body that seems well carbonated with a long bitter longer. A perfect session beer. Certainly better fresh on tap vs. in the can, yet the can does retain that flavourful bitter "session"ability in the beer that I enjoy. A solid ale.

blankboy (6007) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2011
Cask at Burger Bar. Dry-Hopped Cask version. Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size long lasting foamy white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, lots of resiny hops. Flavour is hoppy with an average length bitter finish. Medium bodied. Great stuff, I hope they can have this on cask year-round.

pootzboy (1585) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
On tap: Pours a roily copper colored ale in the tumbler, smallish cap lasts and laces. Decent aroma; pungent cereals mingle with fruity esters and spicey-grassy hopping, some musty earthiness. Flavor is well defined, deep bready malting balanced off with spicy-piney hops, fruity...mild character, soft mouth feel,...finishes long wet and bitter with an extended wet metal taste. Nicely done pale ale in the old Burton style.
