3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a beautiful beer. I’ve been looking for a hoppy, sessionable APA in Ontario - really glad to have found this one. Very similar (with less malt backbone) to a 3 Floyds Alpha King. Lovely hop character that balances with the alcohol level perfectly. A great competitor to Crazy Canuck and Naughty Neighbour - and superior to both of them. I really hope Collective Arts brews this regularly and keeps the LCBO stocked as this is my new "table beer" - the one you keep in the fridge year round.

bottle. Poured medium amber with a rocky off-white head. Full floral hop aroma. Full body with a creamy texture and finishes tart and bitter. Flavour is all hops, grapefruit citrus and peppery notes with an earthy quality.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pale gold with a fine textured head and nice lacing, fairly low carb. Aroma is huge orange peel/zest, lots of pine, slightly floral and dank. Pretty much every hop descriptor there is. Taste is slightly malty, tons of smooth hop flavour that lingers with a pleasant aftertaste. This is really, really good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014/02/03 - Pours a translucent straw colour with a soapy, one finger, white head that quickly reduces to a lingering surface film. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruits and pine. Taste is mild caramel malt, chalk, pine and light citrus/tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is light and watery with sharp carbonation and a chalky, astringent finish. Slightly overrated in my opinion and a little too astringent for my liking.

At County General Restaurant. January 15, 2014. Faint aroma. Strong pine flavour. Seemed to not have much depth beyond the hops.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours and looks great. Aroma has some pine mostly, and some citrus. Taste is smooth with just a slight bite, a good hop combination here.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with a generous white head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with lightly sweet malt notes is quiet pleasant. Taste is also a good mix between some citrus hops with some light tropical fruit notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Good drinkability with just enough complexity (hops floral notes could be a bit more powerful) with wheat malt barely noticeable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml bottle sample. Pours a very light, slightly hazy straw yellow with a small white head. Aromas are nice pine resin, chalk, mild funk, and straw. Tastes are resiny hops, citrus fruits, and a little funk. Chalky, astringent on the palate, light body, long dry finish. Nice APA but a little bit too astringent for my personal taste.

Bottle. Pour is very light copper with a little bit of cloudiness, fluffy white head, clumpy islands of lace. Nose is very tropical, citrus, everything you could want from the style. Caramel malt as well. Tastes sweet, caramel malt, citrus bitter. Great beer.

OK straight to the point "Job Well Done"
Saw this @ the LCBO, the packaging made it stand out, very well done.
Love at first sip, hoppy, citrus (grapefruit) very drinkable, so smooth.
A mid amber colour filtered for sure, nice sturdy head.
I am a sucker for IPA’s this "pale" version is very nice
Collective Arts , more beers please.
