COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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)

bottle. Poured medium amber with a rocky off-white head. Full floral hop aroma. Full body with a creamy texture and finishes tart and bitter. Flavour is all hops, grapefruit citrus and peppery notes with an earthy quality.

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.

Alpha10 (314) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Pours and looks great. Aroma has some pine mostly, and some citrus. Taste is smooth with just a slight bite, a good hop combination here.

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with a generous white head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with lightly sweet malt notes is quiet pleasant. Taste is also a good mix between some citrus hops with some light tropical fruit notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Good drinkability with just enough complexity (hops floral notes could be a bit more powerful) with wheat malt barely noticeable.

BreWedge (301) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2013
355 ml bottle sample. Pours a very light, slightly hazy straw yellow with a small white head. Aromas are nice pine resin, chalk, mild funk, and straw. Tastes are resiny hops, citrus fruits, and a little funk. Chalky, astringent on the palate, light body, long dry finish. Nice APA but a little bit too astringent for my personal taste.

355ml bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a thin frothy white head. Aroma is bready malts, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is sweet, malty with pine resin and earthy notes. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth texture. Slight bitter finish.

Bottle. Pour is very light copper with a little bit of cloudiness, fluffy white head, clumpy islands of lace. Nose is very tropical, citrus, everything you could want from the style. Caramel malt as well. Tastes sweet, caramel malt, citrus bitter. Great beer.

OK straight to the point "Job Well Done" Saw this @ the LCBO, the packaging made it stand out, very well done. Love at first sip, hoppy, citrus (grapefruit) very drinkable, so smooth. A mid amber colour filtered for sure, nice sturdy head. I am a sucker for IPA’s this "pale" version is very nice Collective Arts , more beers please.
