3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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!

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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
