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)

A big IBU beer, on tap at Bryden’s Best of the West 2013. Golden coloured and lacy. A decent bitterness with orange citrus taste. Odd aroma, this pint. Drinkable.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
Tap at C’est What. Pale golden pour. The aroma is a little bit fruity. Light spicy/fruity hops. Fairly dry palate with a bit of crackery malt flavour. Minerally bitterness and a touch of lingering crackery character. Nice stuff.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
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!

jercraigs (8060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
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

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
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.

DuffMan (7029) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle, provided by TylerDurden. Hazy bright yellow body, lively lasting white head. Terrific hop aromatics, lots of pine and citrus, with austere crackery pale malts, very low sweetness and long bitterness. Fantastic stuff!

blankboy (6264) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2013
Draught at Bar Hop. I’d never heard of these guys when I ordered the beer but the people sitting with me were really enjoying it. Pours a hazy orange-copper with a small lasting frothy white head and good lacing on the glass. Really nice aroma with a good amount of Citra hops (not sure if it is Citra but that’s what it smells like) backed by caramel malt. Flavour of citrus hops backed by caramel malt and a long, big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Where did these guys come from? They are coming out of the gate with a solid beer!
