Bottle from Bellwoods - very pale golden pour with a thick white head. There is a very bright juicy citrusy hoppy aroma. Softly sweet malt with a little bit of wheaty spiciness. Mango and pine along with a touch of white pepper. Lean but well balance. Lovely pale ale - quaffable.

A wonderful work of brewing and a superior pale. Full bold fresh simcoe orange citrus taste and well malted. Small amount of head on golden. Exceptional drinkability.

2013-06-23. Lightly hazy bright orange body with a large frothy white head. 3++ Light citrus character and moderate bitterness throughout. Notes of lemon peels. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Pleasant aroma, lightly grassy, mild citrus notes. Pretty nice. Bottle from the brewery

On draught at bar Hop. Hazy light orange, decent off-white frothy head. Smells.... wow; catnip and pee. Beautiful. Taste follows, but way less pungent, can actually taste the light grain; not much alcohol. Light chewy mouthfeel, slightly astringent, modestly carbonated, surprisingly quick finish. Immensely sessionable and enjoyable and right in my wheelhouse.

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2013. Hazy yellow with a creamy white head. Fresh guava hop character married to crackery malts. Clean and fruity, long bitter finish. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a cloudy dark yellow, quite bubbly, and with an average size long lasting frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing on the glass. Nice hoppy aroma, herbal, piney and fruity -- simple but very pleasant. Flavour follows the aroma and is just as good, nice and hoppy, along with citrus fruit, pale malt and an average dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very good, I really enjoyed it, I went through the bottle very quickly.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy, opaque pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings tons of soft pine and floral notes, like a fresh meadow, with some crackery malt in the back. Flavour brings out loads of floral notes, again like a fresh meadow, some mild citrus, and biscuity malt. Very fresh, floral and dry on the palate. Highly drinkable pale. Great stuff.

Same great piney yeast taste as the other monogamies. The hops variety isn’t the most interesting, but makes for a good session ale. Pours cloudy blond with good lacing and head. Some citrus and pine. Carbonation is somewhere between soft and fizzy. Tap at Bar hop.

Tap, pours golden, aroma was a nice piney and so was taste, it was a bit faint of hopps for me, would have liked it to be a bit hoppy, had almost a creamy finish.

Thanks to jercraigs for this. Pours cloudy straw yellow with a moderate white top. Aroma is grass and pine hop flavouring. Great nose. Taste is a great balance of pine hops and sweetness and grass from the malt.
