Butterscotch colour that is quite hazy. Great aroma. The west coast hops combined with the rye malts was really great. ’Juicy’ hop flavour with lots of bitterness. Lots of c-hops as well as wet grass and a slight buttery note on the back. very well balanced with a smooth mouth feel and a bitter finish.

[4387-20120421] Cask. Light evergreen cow notes in the aroma with some floral grains. Slightly hazy, amber orange body with a long-lasting bubbly off-white head. Orange citrus grains flavour has a bitter butter background. Medium-full body. Good but a bit odd at first. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2012 2012-06-30. Did not take notes but this was much fruitier, hoppier and generally more robust than the last time I tried it. Had a couple of pints. +2 overall. On tap at Betty’s, Toronto
2012-04-21. Lightly hazy dark amber, near headless body. Modest aroma needs some coaxing, mild malt and hops. 7+ Similar flavour, modest malt character, mild bitterness up front starts low and grows steadily towards the finish, modest resin, lightly leafy hops. It is a bit mild up front but I like it. Average to medium bodied palate is lightly carbonated, but has one of the better palates of the day. 3+ Looking forward to trying this one on tap. Blind Tasting on Cask at Volo IPA Challenge

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Betty’s. Pours a cloudy copper-orange with a small lasting frothy off-white head. Decent lacing. Big hop aroma with resiny/fruity/citrusy hops mainly along with some malt in the background. Lovely hoppy flavour, resiny and citrusy hops, along with rye malt, citrusy fruit and a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Holy shit, Camerons? Wow. Congrats on your best beer yet, keep it up.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
April 7, 2012 - on draught at Volo (had three of these!!). Slightly hazy copper with a solid sticky-looking tan creamy head, thick lacing. Smells wonderful - like a lush tropical fruit/citrus west coast pale ale/ipa, with some cereal grain to it, hardly any alcohol ... balanced. Taste - initially a huge whack of grainy bitterness, must be the rye (tastes "red") - sharp, pungent, acidic, the aroma is quite different, as there is not as much fruity/citrus bitterness here, just grain and sharp bitterness .. a bit more alcohol too (also not quite as balanced as the aroma, but still very moreish). Chewy mouthfeel, solid body, the rye makes it seem very astringent, nice carbonation, and a long pungent top/back palate bitter finish, not boozy, and really easy to drink - and SCORE! they are bottling this now!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Volo. Pours a cloudy amber colour with smallish white head. Aroma is caramel, citric and piney hops and a bit of graininess. Flavour likewise, with chewy grapefruity and piney hops balanced nicely by the rye malt. Decent bitterness in finish. A nice APA and unquestionably the best Camerons beer I’ve had.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2012 Bottle: puts a roily unfiltered golden ale in the glass with a decent cap that lasts and laces. Aroma is west cost IPA with a difference - pungent grapefruit, floral, some cereals, and a great earthy funk (from the rye?). Flavour is all west coast pale ale but very intense and with a decent body. In a blind test you’d call this an west coast IPA - the spoiler is the quick rye spice right at the end of the finish. This is probably the best pale ale made in this local market, the rye component adds to the spicey- citrus complexity which is a matter of hop mixure, rye malt and dry hopping. A fantastic pale.
