A zesty American pale ale brewed with blood oranges. The coveted Kohatu hop from New Zealand imparts a juicy quality to the well-balanced brew. Bold aromatics of citrus peel, a restrained bitterness on the palate, and faintly pink in colour. This refreshing special edition beer was brewed to support Beer4Boobs Ontario, which raises money for breast cancer research.

Une bouteille partagée avec Frank. Un liquide doré, il me semble, avec une mousse blanche cassée. Un nez très intéressant avec son bouquet de fleurs comestibles, ses fruits jaunes et ses grains pâles presque poivrés. Un goût floral et fruité (agrumes, petites baies) et croquant. Un corps moyen-faible avec un pétillement ajusté et une texture légère. Une finale menée par l’hibiscus et par son côté floral faiblement amer et tranquillement acidulé.

500ml bottle courtesy of blankboy - thanks, P!!! bottle indicates orange & hibiscus. Absolutely gorgeous pour - cloudy peachy-pink orange with a large and long-lasting foaming thick off-white head - close to 5/5. Waves and waves of lush tropical fruit and citrus, definitely getting the hibiscus - you could tell me there is 2% or 9% alcohol in this, my nose would not be able to tell; stunning. Taste - there’s the orange, the floral character is quite restrained, and it’s surprisingly grainy - and nowhere as sweet or bitter as the nose promised - good, but that aroma ... the taste is ALMOST a let-down after that aroma ... light body, alcohol and carbonation - quite dry, the bitterness is vaguely pithy and only in the linger/aftertaste - it goes down extremely easily ... very very nice beer.

This beer was amazing. I was worried it was going to be too fruity for my tastes but it was balanced really well.

Diolch JoeMcphee. Hazy orange pour with a thin white head and lasting lace. Citrus orange peel flavour. Smooth texture. A little soapy in the finish. Enjoyable brew.

This is fairly bursting with citrus flavours - orange and grapefruit and some tropical fruit - as well as hibiscus notes. Okay, I’m kidding about the hibiscus, having not eaten too many flowers before. But the beer is juicy and refreshing and very good.

Occurs as sort of an average Bellwoods type of IPA style thing at first not really my thing, sulfury cattyhop, Pine and grapefruit. Cloudy orange blonde with pure white cap.

Nice and refreshing orangish brew. Tropical aroma mostly hop and orange, not too bitter, light to medium bodied.

Bonne amertume et un léger soupçon de houblon. Un petit goût acidulé se fait sentir. Pas mal mais il semble qu’un des arômes devrait se démarquer un peu plus.
