MartinT (8328) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAY 19, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Cushy cereals and spicy hop fruitiness gel from aroma to finish in this charming quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam sits atop the cloudy pale amber.
-For a moment there, I got the impression I was drinking a brew from a Franconian countryside brewery that had discovered the potential beauty of US hop varieties. The hop dosage, high drinkability, and fluffy, natural smoothness were all reminiscent
-The flavor profile is balanced throughout.
-These flavors might not be super refined, but they are bright enough to be engaging.
-If I were in the Toronto area, I would probably make this my go-to brew.
-The frothy, soft carbonation and slender sugars make for a friendly mouthfeel.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2015
January 2, 2015 - on draught at WVRST. Very clear and pale gold with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma and taste are very bitter - dry and floral - could use a touch more fruity malt and possibly some citrus or resin, but it’s pretty solid - a little gluey stickiness to the mouthfeel, but average all around, and nicely attenuated. Easy drinking, well made.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Tasted on 2/2/15 from a capped 500mL bottle that Jake sent me, huge thanks! Pours crystal clear orange with a thick, rocky white head that slowly recedes to thick, even lace, leaving some sticky residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is light multigrain bread malt with a lot of green, floral, and very grassy hops. The flavor is a nice balance between the bread malt, grass, flowers, citrus, and some light bitterness. The body is light with very lively carbonation and a long lightly grassy and floral finish.

Fruity aroma. Orange color. Similar to Paper Tiger, so I thought they served the same one. But this one has a gooood body. I liked it. Bought one bottle for souvenir.

Très bonne session IPA, rien de super WOW, mais un produit de bonne qualité. Très léger à 4.8% avec un bon petit goût houbloné en bouche. Très bonne pale ale pour ceux qui recherche des bières légères.

BreWedge (356) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a light golden yellow with a meringue like white head and a little bit of yeast haze from the bottom of the pour. Aromas of pine, pineapple, and pepper. Gentle pine, grapefruit, and pepper. Chalky, medium carbonation, and a fairly lengthy astringent finish.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
500 mL bottle from the brewery, served in a branded stem glass. Pours clear yellow-golden with a small, white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of pine, soft citrus, pineapple and grass, with a hint of pale malts. The flavour begins mildly sweet with a touch of bitterness up front and evolves to a moderate piney, citrusy bitterness with a pale malt accent. The finish is medium in length and moderately hoppy with grainy malts coming through. It is light-medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a fairly simple pale ale which is inoffensive, but not terribly interesting. 2014-10-22

Quevillon (2591) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
500 ml bottle from the brewery bottle shop on October 10, 2014. Light hazy gold, small head. Citrus herb aroma, a bit of tobacco. Very dry orange herb taste, some light sourness, light grapefruit bitterness. You won’t cry wolf with this beer!

Helsdon (230) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
It’s Thanksgiving and I’m giving thanks to all the beer I’ve been imbibing. This devil pours a cloudy yellow with a finger that sticks around with a little lacing, which I note is rather different than some of the reviewers I follow, notably Freaky_tiki and jercraigs who a year ago describe an orange-er version of this beer. The nose delivers some resin-pine hops, but not much malt. The taste delivers very similar results, with that pine, hops dominating and the malts really not doing much. Feels a bit thin, but it is a session, but the prominent hops fills it out a bit. It’s alright for a session.
