Thanks to jercraigs for this. Pours a cloudy slightly dark golden yellow with a moderate white frothy top. Aroma is fruity citrus, a little off aroma of stale hay. Taste is fruity bitterness with wheat. Low on the flavours, calypso is better as a bittering hop but this is still tasty.

November 20, 2012 - on draught at the brewpub. Slightly hazy gold with an average frothy tightly foamy off-white head. Smells great - juicy, light resin, plenty of citrus/citrus zest character. Taste is way more floral than anything, an odd iron bite to the malt, surprisingly very grainy - plenty of cereal, it actually detracts from the bitterness a fair bit: not much alcohol, but itís detectable. Solid body, a bit chewy and astringent, good airy carbonation, a decently long eventually palate-coating moderately grapefruit pith bitter finish. I must say I liked it less as it warmed up, which was odd.

robinvboyer (3107) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2012
on tap at Bellwoods. Hazy golden pour, big frothy white head. Light citrus, light pine, and alot of grass. Quite acidic, even vinous. The calypso is an odd hop. Light bready malts, and some solid cereals. Dry, medium bitter finish.

blankboy (6051) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Nov. 20. Pours a cloudy golden-orange with a small frothy white head. Some lacing. Mild aroma of tropical fruit, canned peas, hops and pale malt. Flavour has a good amount of hops, a bit spicy, fruity, a touch resiny, along with some grain and a hint of alcohol. Dry, bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, I didnít love it but I did like it.

On tap at brew pub
Aroma: medium potency of Calypso hop character. Clean , straight approach with clean good golden malt base. Fresh floral feel. 8-.
Look: fine haze on golden base with lighter white top.
Taste/palate: well rounded hop profile exceptionally well presented. Soft texture below with welcoming golden malts. Smart brewing. Knowledge of play between sugars and hops is apparent. Splendid !

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle: Poured a light hazy golden hay color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fruity hops with light bitterness notes is quite pleasing. Taste is a good mix of fruity hops with nice clean ester and some light bitter aftertaste. Malt is quiet present but also well balanced as to not overshadow the hops profile. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Well brewed though not the most expressive hops variety.
