How is it possible I haven’t rated this yet? Strong malts balance the floral and tangerine hop notes in the aroma. Clear copper coloured body is topped by a decent, fine-bubbled white head that recedes to cover with great lacing. Thick sweet caramel malts are offset by medium bitterness but this definitely a malty pale ale. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Enjoyed on tap at Alibi Room.

Rating is for the Citra hopped version, how is this aliased? This is vastly better than the original version! Pours clear honey gold, thin white head, solid lacing. Nose is spicy juicy floral hops; apricots, clean malt, ginger. Flavours of spicy stonefruit, lots of tea and white peach. Great!!

lesifflebiere (1670) - 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.

Clear golden pour, small white head. Dank, earthy, citrusy nose on this. Biscuity caramel sweetness on the flavor with earthy, herbal, dank hops and a little citrus. Pretty straightforward, but definitely one of the better pale ales I’ve had from Canada.

piscator34 (2345) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 30, 2011
Canned sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are predominantly floral, backed by hoppy elements of mango and orange marmalade. Flavours are a mix of dry biscuity malts, sharp tropical fruits, faint caramel and a herbal/black pepper finish. Light bodied, hoppy, firm bitterness, and quite refreshing. Cleaner than the IPA, which I like.

oakbluff (437) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 13, 2011
Can sample- pours a cloudy pale straw yellow. Frothy head, minor soapy lacing. Nose- grapefruit pith, some malt sweetness. Taste- citrus (candied oranges), grapefruit, marmalade with a bready malt backbone. Crisp carbonation and nice body. Very drinkable

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
October 30, 2011 - Volo Cask Days 2011 - gravity cask. This is the "Citra" version of this, but I guess since this isn’t England or Québec it can’t be a separate rating. Lovely hazy orange pour with a smallish but lasting bright white frothy head. Aroma is ... yummm - total pungent fresh catty citra bitterness with framing sweet pineapple malt - fantastic. Taste is a bit maltier and more restrained - good, but more APA - some alcohol, good balance. Decent body, mild carbonation, a fairly quick finish - 15- because that aroma .... damn that was fine!

Can. Pours amber. Tastes fruity malty and hoppy all rolled into an easy drinking beer.

Jayseppi (159) - 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.

rejtable (2310) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
This is a great basic pale ale! Nose is tropical fruit with some pine. Arômes are médium fruity, some biscuit, lots of pine. Tastes are light sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Long lasting dry aftertaste. Body is light-medium with lively carbonation.
