3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014-04-05. Hazy dark orange body, nice frothy white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, notes of grass, green hops and citrus melange. Flavour is fairly bitter throughout, pleasantly so, moderate citrus throughout, tangerine and grassy dry hops in the finish, bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. 7+ Smooth average plus palate is pretty carbonated, almost just a touch too much so. Quite enjoyable and very quaffable. Bottle

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Juicy citrus fruit evolve into sizeable resinous bitterness within this Pale Ale’s bready malt sweetness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the hazy straw yellow.
-The big yet soft bubbles feel natural.
-The bread-laden residual sugars are a bit too much for my liking in this type of brew.
-Hops are enticing from aroma to finish.
-Drinkability is high.
Bottle. Merci, Luc!

355ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thin off-white head. The nose is heavy with resinous notes, with grapefruit, and a faint whiff of well, pot. Lighter bodied with big resinous notes up front that follow through to the finish with light malt, an herbal note, heavy mineral notes, and citrus pith.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Supermarket, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavour brings out fresh doughy malts, sweet cereal, and piney hops. Good solid pale, but nothing overly special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Bar Hop (Toronto). Hazy pale amber with a nice creamy head. Nice balance of sweet and bitter with mango, orange, some lemon zest, bit of grass, caramel malt and some mild earthy undertones. Moderate body and carbonation, easy to drink, slightly sweet on the finish with a somewhat dry finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pale gold with a fine textured head and nice lacing, fairly low carb. Aroma is huge orange peel/zest, lots of pine, slightly floral and dank. Pretty much every hop descriptor there is. Taste is slightly malty, tons of smooth hop flavour that lingers with a pleasant aftertaste. This is really, really good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014/02/03 - Pours a translucent straw colour with a soapy, one finger, white head that quickly reduces to a lingering surface film. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruits and pine. Taste is mild caramel malt, chalk, pine and light citrus/tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is light and watery with sharp carbonation and a chalky, astringent finish. Slightly overrated in my opinion and a little too astringent for my liking.

At County General Restaurant. January 15, 2014. Faint aroma. Strong pine flavour. Seemed to not have much depth beyond the hops.
