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)

sudomorph (1033) - Barrie, Ontario, - OCT 27, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2013 355ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a fluffy, one finger, off-white head. Mild lacing. Aroma is pleasant. Notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine, resin, and bread with an earthyness. Taste is bitter with a a drawn out resiny/pine/grapefruit aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly resiny in the mouth but still moderately clean and crisp. Overall I’m really liking this. Solid aroma and taste and very drinkable. Lots of flavour for 5.7%. Would probably buy again.

ChadPoole (137) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
Pours hazy amber/orange with a white head that laces the glass.  Has a citrus and pine aroma. Taste is the same as aroma with some sweet fruits, caramel malts and a decent bitterness. Bought a six pack at  the lcbo, really liked how each bottle had different art work.

Tessic (1027) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2016
This IPA poured a nice amber colour with a big, soapy, off white head. Scents include grassy hops and root vegetables. First swig was quite hoppy with flavors of hay and grass. Finish was quite hoppy and bitter with grass finishing off the palate.

fhoublon (404) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Bouteille de 355ml achetée dans une SAQ. Dégustée le 4 mars 2016 (lager glass). Bière blonde dorée voilée. Mousse beaucoup, il faut être prudent en la versant sinon elle déborde facilement. Col blanc crème très épais et persistant. Très effervescente, grosses bulles. Odeur de pamplemousse, de sucre d’érable. Assez forte en amorce, assez sucrée, très amère. Saveur sèche un peu herbacée. Bien mais aurait pu être mieux équilibrée.

Matwill (86) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
American Pale Ale ramassé à la SAQ Maisonneuve/City Councillors. Délicieuse Pale Ale bien houblonné, permettant d’étancher la soif d’été la plus féroce.

UXO (1309) - CANADA - APR 5, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with one fat finger of fluffy ivory head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: resiny pine, catty, citrus, pale malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Can I just say, their decision to integrate their labels with the Blippar app is just fucking genius? Crack a beer, scan the label, and rock out (in this bottle’s case, to a choral rendition of Toto’s “Africa”) - what’s not to like? Oh, and the beer’s quite decent, too. Resiny pine leads, with a mild and inoffensive catty edge, and just the right pale malt supporting. The bitterness in the finish is fairly lingering and aggressive, and I can see it being a deal breaker for some - but not me. Yeah, it’s got some rough edges, but ultimately it’s a solid APA. (15/20)

cattaneopapa (259) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2016
Pours a hazy gold colour with one finger of lasting head. Aroma of apples, pears, mangos and citrus. Taste matches the aroma and finishes dry and hoppy. Medium carbonation.

blueliner2 (2) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2016 does not count
Six pack of bottles from the LCBO. Poured in to a tulip glass. Pleasant but unremarkable aroma. Pleasing dark amber with good bit of white head. Subtle citrus and hint of pine hoppiness, lively carbonation. Most enjoyable. This will be a favourite for a while...
