3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a hazy copper-gold with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Some minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet bready malt, sweet fruit, citrus hops and some spicy notes. Interesting flavour, spicy (from the NZ hops?), fruity and hoppy along with a moderate bitter finish.
Average to medium bodied. Pretty good Pale Ale.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange pour, with a huge white head. Intoxicating aroma of ripe oranges, lemons, and grapefruit. Loads of citrus zest and apricots, and other stone fruit. Wow! Mouth feel is soft but pleasant, and the finish is low to medium on the bitterness, with a just juicy citrus closing. Excellent beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 mL bottle. Pours a thoroughly hazed light amber with a thick white head of lingering lace. Big tropical fruit nose, pineapple, mango, orange, caramel malt, biscuit and piney resin. A little malty-sweet offset by heavy hop bitterness. Probably hoppier and more aggresively bittered than some middle-of-the-road IPAs. Light bodied with above average carbonation, very refreshing and woefully drinkable. Absolutely crushed; loved it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a cloudy orange colour with good-sized white head that leaves a little lace. Aroma has lots of citrus, some sweet malt and a hint of minerally character. Flavour is citric hops with solid grapefruit, minerals, sweet, grainy malt and a little caramel. A pleasant bitterness in finish. Nice APA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange brew with big white frothy head. Aroma is very big american styled upfront citrus hoppy notes with a hint of something bready. Fairly big body, but that body mostly comes from the carbonation, with hoppy citrus notes. Pretty darn good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
hazr amber pour, a thumbs worth of head. Pineapple, orange rind and grapefruit in the aroma. Same citrus profile while drinking this, with noticeable pine, and caramel in the back end. A bit metallic up front but I’m used to that with british pale ales. smooth mouthfeel.
