lobs_ols (362) - LATVIA - DEC 31, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 Transparent amber, strong white head. Light hoppy aroma, nothing specific. Medium bitterness with some toasty notes, balanced body and bitter-ish finish. Okay, but nothing spectacular.

probstblueribbon (3277) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
500 ml bottle from LCBO via my bro, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Cloudy deep amber with a reasonable light tan head. Aroma: Juicy, fruity hops, lots of grapefruit, some pine and resin, a bit dusty, caramel malt, floral and perfumed notes. Palate: Medium body, fairly lively carbonation. Flav.: Much like the nose with lots of fruity, perfumed hops, restrained caramel maltiness, a bit dusty, pine and resin in the background; dry with reasonable bitterness and a lovely hoppy finish.

It was worth the wait.

Smells really nice, a lot of malt but a bunch of tropical, citrus and stone fruit notes as well. Relatively clear golden color, streaming effervescence, long lasting white head. Tastes delicious , juicy tropical hops and sweet malt upfront, finishes more bitter, leafy notes. Tons of flavor for this pale ale, the maltyness just seems to get in the way a bit. Medium bodied and average carbonation.

teddybeer (2714) - Paris, FRANCE - DEC 30, 2014
Drak golden color with a white head with good retention and medium lacework. Aroma has notes of pine, some herbal, and citrus hints. Flavor has a decent bitterness, citrusy and resins notes, with hints of grapefruit. Bittery final with a fresh mouthfeel, easy drinkable.

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2014
Pale amber-orange pour with a thick white head. The nose is softly fruity and a little bit hoppy. Orange peel and a fairly bright grapefruity citrus aroma. It’s got a bit of a spicy/earthy backnote on it that I quite like. Has a little bit of crackery malt along with a bit of lingering bitterness. Has a touch of soft lingering spiciness. Really lovely brew.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
500ml bottle from the LCBO - Christmas Eve 2014 rate!! Fairly clear light amber pour, very large and lasting fluffy off-white head. Nice simple floral aroma, light citrus, some alcohol - pleasant, a nice tang to it as well. Taste follows - more lemon, less flower character, nice and dry- simple, but it held up well on its travels. Average body and carbontion, medium finish, a little dry and tingly in the aftertaste. I would like to have this one on tap - I think it would get a 0.2 bump.

Listigovers (482) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2014
Smells strongly of pineapple, some sweet malty scent in the background, a bit of bubblegum. Golden pour, clear, dense white head which dissipates quickly. Bready malt flavour, somewhat bitter, medium-light bodied, not too carbonated, hop flavours are well balanced by the malts. Tons of smell and flavour without being overpowering in any one factor, this is a nice one.
