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)

mcberko (12456) - 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.

Sammy (10678) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2013
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.

deyholla (9762) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2015
On tap at Barley Brothers. Pours a clear yellow gold with a a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a nice earthy citrus with a bit of sweet citrus and a light grain backbone. Flavor has a real nice citrus note with a bit of bread and some sweetness.

jercraigs (9253) - 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

BVery (9222) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle from Andrew - thanks! This is great. Hazy orange pour. Nice bright citrus, low malt, moderate bitterness with a clean finish. I could drink a bunch of these.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - 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 (8987) - 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!
