Rhyme & Reason, Extra Pale Ale American style pale ale. The flavour and aroma of Citra, Centennial, Chinook and Simcoe hops prevail without excessive bitterness for maximum drinkability. Malt sweetness of Pale Ale, Crystal Carafoam and Wheat Flakes in the background complements the hops for a crisp finish. 5.7 ABV 55 IBUs (Bottles and Draft)

355 ml bottle purchase at the Boisbriand SAQ on Novembre 5, 2015. Dark hazy orange, medium head. Light hoppy aroma, sweet coniferous notes. Taste is about the same, with some nice citrus notes, nice light bitterness. Very decent pale ale, only snobs would hate it!

Une blonde trouble garnie d’une mousse collante qui dessine de beaux motifs sur la paroi de mon verre. Un beau parfum d’agrumes et de fleurs au travers un houblon vert. Une belle amertume au travers un malt sucré. De bonnes bulles allègent le liquide résineux. Elle est sèche, avec des saveurs épicées, mentholées et herbacées. Un arrière-goût réunissant toutes ces particularités gustatives. C’est juteux et ça se boit très bien. Une agréable surprise. (1650-101115)

Une bouteille achetée à la SAQ. Une bière dorée légèrement voilée avec une mousse fond rapidement pour laisser quelques traces derrière elle. Au nez, parfums d’orange et de pêche, d’herbes et de fleurs avec une pointe de conifères. Bien intéressant! Au goût, houblons poivrés et minimalement fruités, biscuit et sapinage. En bouche, corps moyen avec bon apport des bulles. Texture huileuse. Finale résineuse assez forte qui freine sa buvabilité.

Bottle (355 ml) at home. Thanks to mathieuc for this bottle! Hazy orangey-gold with a medium rather easy to revive off-white head and pretty good lacing. Aroma is of oranges, caramel, mild spiciness, grassy notes and mild melon. Taste is grassier with a sticky herbal - moderate - bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Sticky herbal and a bit resinous finish. Oily. Not bad, but no way this is is even close to top-50 APA. Too sticky.

Thanks Steve for the bottle! Hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Big citrus and peach hop aroma. Light malt body with loads of citrus and tropical fruit in the taste. Nice summer beer.

You can imagine my surprise when I saw that the SAQ started carrying that... I do hope it will be fresh since it is just from the next province! Pours a lightly hazy golden with a medium-high white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of oranges, melon, pine and resin. Nice hop mix! Taste is moderately bitter and not too sweet. Pine needles, light sweet cereals. Body is medium, carbonation moderately high and expressive. Bitterness lingers for quite a while but is never bothersome. Really nice, I’m impressed! Keep it up, SAQ!

Bottle from local Saq A: citrusy, light mango, light caramel app: clear copper with thick lasting white head and excellent lacing t/p: med body with moderate long bitter finish and moderate carbonation. O: I couldn’t find any date on the bottle I’m suspicious that even tough it’s brand new on saq’s shelves, that the beer isn’t super fresh. More fruitiness in aroma wise would benefit the beer. An updated rating of a draft version could be welcome.
