Pours a light hazy orange with generous cream coloured head. that leaves lots of lace. Nose is heavy pine and grapefruit. Great up front bitterness with some sweet toffee and a good dry bitter finish. Body and carbonation are average and feels a little thinner than you would expect but that actually seems to make it more enjoyable

Clear copper pour with a large frothy head. Gorgeous tropical fruit hop aroma. Tropical fruit hop flavour with a grapefruit citrus bitterness to cut through the sweetness. Lovely ale. Very pleasant.

lesifflebiere (1242) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Bière jaune, modérément houblonnée, au nez d’ananas et très floral de façon générale. Bouche également passablement houblonnée, aux malts sucrés et à la finale herbacée. Une IPA, du moins en théorie, qui offre des saveurs convenues, connues, mais qui touchent la cible. Agréable jusqu’à un certain point, mais seulement correcte du point de vue analyse.

Karol (616) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 22, 2014
Tapped at Silversmith Brewing Company in Niagara on the Lake/Ontario/Canada. Aroma of citrus hops, golden and copper color, almost clear. Off white head, stable and kept a good 5mm level. Taste starts with a lot of malt yet quickly turns into bitter hops. Tasty bitter hops finish. Overall refreshing and a very very good pale ale!

Listigovers (293) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Really nice golden pour with a white head. Strong aroma of gorgeous citrusy hops, exceptionally fresh and natural smelling. Very bitter for such a light bodied beer, this one is purely about hops. A complex bitterness that slowly develops on your tongue, simcoe hops really shine. Dry and fairly light, refreshing and summery.

Rating is a weird thing. I always feel like a couple of the criteria are gimmes. Mostly Appearance. What in the world is a bad looking beer? Cloudy? Too dark or light? Not enough head? None of those really. But with Rhyme and Reason poured into my curved Junction English Pint glass this beer looked unbelievable. It was a lovely golden near the edges of the glass, and through the center, an orange. A thin, yet dense white head that was president, literally, topped it off. That’s a five. The beer itself had a nice nose of hops citrus, and a little resin. The taste was hoppy, citrus, resin and floral. Strong but not overwhelming. The malts in the flavours are simple breads and cereal. Nice finish with some hops bitterness. Really good beer. It just made my regular rotation.

Pours a semi-translucent amber. White head with moderate lacing.Aromas of orange, and light pine. Even a bit of butterscotch. Light refreshing mouth feel. Citrus up front with hints of malt on the finish. Some definite sweetness going on in the mix. Some orange peel creeping in there.Billed as an extra pale ale, this would satisfy IPA fans. Great mix of flavor and drinkability. Most sessionable beer I’ve had in a while.
