Freaky_tiki (794) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
This solid American Pale via England pours loud & proud into the glass. The beer is the colour of Scandinavian teak mid century furniture & the one finger cap is a beautiful mushy white. A really tasty pale ale. Starts sweet & hoppy -- with a fantastic grapefruit meets apricot kiwi hop style in the front -- & finishes dry & brisk. I think its a really strong rendition of the style & i am impressed to see the hops fresh & vivid despite the travel. Recommended.

lobs_ols (408) - 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 (3326) - 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.

hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
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.
