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).

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.

jksipa (316) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
Can from the LCBO. Hazy amber with a tight off white head that leaves lots of lace. Nose is roasted malts and grain with a hint of vanilla and caramel and only the faintest bit of grass. Lightly sweet with caramel followed by a mild bitterness. Medium palate with average carbonation. Nothing exciting. The Xtra hoppy version might have some more character.

A pleasant surprise. Nice beer for an airport. Not crazy hoppy but some pleasant bitterness. Quality APA.

Bendrixian (1094) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
Clear brew with decent head, well carbonated, and darker yellow colour. Muted brew with a slightly floral hoppy note, some malts and caramel. Fast tasting brew with light mid palate and a slightly hoppy finish. Meh, boring beer but not the worst.

markas101 (1830) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
50 cl can, Mulmur, ON, Canada via Paul. Pale amber, weak-tea appearance. Sweet caramel bread aroma. More sweetness on first sip. slight ginger flavour with caramel and cardamom spice. Finish is a bit too sweet for me, though it’s certainly quaffable.
