Light ruby orange body with foamy white head and some nice lacing. Citrus aroma. Taste is mildly bitter, a little medicinal or metallic and not as flavourful as I was hoping. Okay.

ljthiessen (329) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle. Golden yellow pour with a sudsy off-white head. Flavour is surprisingly hoppy and bitter, some biscuit and caramel notes. Medium body. Drinks more like a session IPA - not bad, but a little overly bitter for the style, in my opinion.

A fantastic pale ale. Big citrus and tropical fruit aromas and flavors that are supported nicely by a malty caramel driven backbone. Great stuff.

Nice bitter yellow light to medium bodied bitter. Quite dry with citrus aroma. Quite ok, not too special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Matt! Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice citrus note with some sweet grains and biscuit backing. Flavor is a bit more laid back with light citrus, light grains and a hint of pine.

lesifflebiere (1212) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
Bière orangée présentant une bonne couche de mousse ; semble mi-mince. En nez, malts sucrés, poires, et un peu d’ananas. Les saveurs s’apparentent aussi à ces descriptifs, variant des fruits tropicaux à une petite amertume herbacée en finale, le tout surfant sur des malts qui viennent arrondir joliment le liquide. Une APA "by the book" mais qui réussit à tous les points de vue, savoureuse mais totalement "sessionnable" à la fois.

Jayseppi (154) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Great topaz colour under a fizzy white cap. Hoppy aroma has tropical fruit, melon and some dankness to it. The flavour has a good blast of hops that leave a slight lingering bitterness in the finish. Smooth across the palate with a good level of carbonation. Solid pale ale.

andrewturba (950) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2013
Pours a clear amber with sizable dull white head that leaves moderate lace on the glass. Aroma is sweet, citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit and light bready malts. Flavour is citrus, grapefruit, resin, medium bitterness that lingers a bit, and sweet bready notes under the hops. Quite an enjoyable brew.

On tap. Pours a light amber with light head. Aromas of fruit, pine, and toasted malts. Flavors are similar with bitter finish.

Cannette 355 ml. 5%. Cannette VERTE comme la IPA. Couleur cuivrée, mousse blanche. Arôme de céréale et un peu de houblon. En bouche, notes de grains, herbes, un peu d’agrumes. Finale avec une légère amertume, un peu de caramel léger. Très bonne.
