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 (814) - 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.

PictouRx (155) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
pours pale orange white head, flavours of citrus fruits, grapefruit, I get a hint of pine , mixed with not overpower bitter hop, thin texture but smooth, slight after taste lingers. This is a drinkable beer with a good character, collective arts has something here, but I still prefer their sessional IPA state of mind.

northropfrye (2458) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 24, 2015
Pale light orange body with lasting pillowy off-white head and spotty lacing. Virbant citrus hop aroma, some resin and floral notes. Taste is not crazy bitter but has a nice happiness, floral elements, grapefruit, resin, soap and a touch of rhubarb. Really nice APA.

This APA is as good as almost any other APA I’ve had. And it can be found at home for a change. Pours orange with white head. Wonderful fresh dank hop and citrus aromas. Ditto on the flavour. Very fresh citrus flavours. Very crisp, refreshing, and full of flavour. Awesome!

ljthiessen (621) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Slightly hazy, light amber pour with a big pillowy white head. Aroma is bright with lots of citrus and tropical fruit; lemon and orange zest, some mango, quite nice. Flavour is much the same, with some sweet malt underpinning a fairly bitter citrus, a bit of resin. Pretty thin texture for the amount of flavour, like a great session IPA but with somehow a bigger ABV. Really nice.

yourilevesque (187) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
Très très jolie bière blonde, légèrement trouble et surmontée d’un collet blanc-cumulus onctueux mais peu persistant. De la bouteille émanent de puissantes arômes avant même que le liquide soit entièrement versé. Le nez est très houblonné. La dominante est le fruit de la passsion mêlé à une jolie mangue Atulfo bien mûre. Plutôt unidirectionnel mais combien rafraîchissant! En bouche le houblon citra se révèle avec autorité par une forte présence d’agrumes (qui surprend légèrement je dois l’admettre). C’est de l’écorce de citron pour être plus précis. Le goût est très amer, à la limite de l’âcre. Le malt est bien mal représenté dans cette bière au corps plutôt étroit. Somme toute cette bière souffre d’un manque d’équilibre en bouche mais est légère comme une plume ce qui est en fait la qualité de son defaut. Je la recommande l’après-midi bien à l’ombre en dégustant une jolie salade niçoise où règnent en maîtres olives, miettes de thon et anchois!

17.02.2015. On tap at Corks Beer & Wine bar, Toronto. Fresh herbal aroma. Fresh but also soft with clear notes of green spruce shoots. Medium body and dominated by hops. Good fresh beer!!

6 Pack, Trainyards LCBO Ottawa. Finally! Pale to medium hazy yellow, foamy small white head. Citrus aroma, but also some floral notes - really nice. Clean, appropriate carbonated mouthfeel. Super taste - up front bitterness balanced with lovely malt backbone that stays in background and lets the fruity hops shine through. Super drinkable. Hides even the 5.7% well. I could drink a tremendous amount of this - one of the better APA’s I have ever had.

Franckg (340) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Goût de malt sucré, résine, caramel et de houblons frais. Très rafraichissante et gouteuse. Ne réinvente pas le style mais est très buvable.
