Tessic (921) - Brantford, Ontario, - JAN 1, 2014
This APA poured a cloudy dark yellow colour with a minimal head. Scents include pineapple citrus hops, orange citrus hops and maybe a floral hop? First swig was smooth and a little watery. Hop level alot less than expected based on the scents. Flavours of lemon zest and citrus hop in general. Finish was mildly bitter with the citrus shining through.

ametras (690) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy blonde with a frothy white head. Flavors are cereals, honey, peach, grapefruit and pine with grassy and floral notes. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture.

GlennHendry (90) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2015
Floral hops with a hint of citrus on the nose. Quite light in body, it tastes of lemony citrus, biscuity malts and wildflowers. Easy drinking.

UXO (713) - CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Pours hazy pale gold with a short off-white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, good lacing. (3/5) Nose is doughy bread, grassy and floral hops, light citrus, very mild pale malt. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate to low carbonation, off-dry bitter and slightly spicy finish. (4/5) Not my favourite Bellwoods, which isn’t to say there’s anything overtly wrong with it - because there isn’t - but they so excel at “real” brews that this “session” ale seems like a pale imposter (no pun intended). I’ll session Roman Candle, Boogie Monster, or Witchshark instead, thanks. (14/20)

HogTownHarry (6200) - 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.

Poured from 500mL bottle. Golden yellow with white head. Citrus hops and mild sweet biscuity malt, slightly floral. Medium body. Solid brew.

wedgie9 (2504) - 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.

sammyboyy (54) - Shawinigan, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
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 (367) - 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.
