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.

Draft. Clear light amber pour, thin film of white head, probably not the best pour. Strong hoppy aroma, grapefruit, citrus, hint of bubblegum. Taste is caramel malts at first, citrus and tropical hop finish. Excellent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours ruby with thick white head. Strong hoppy aroma of bubblegum and piney grapefruit: one of the best-smelling beers I’ve had. Tastes of much the same: maybe not quite at the level the aroma would suggest, but still pretty Damn good. Oily mouthfeel and lingering finish. A keeper.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Medium Orange with a white, lasting, lacy, tan head. Smells off sweet fruity tropical hops with fresh zesty citrus hops. Sweet caramel taste at fist with a citrus overtone and finishes with lots of fruity hops and a dry citrus ending. A cracking IPA that hits the spot. A fantastic beer. Medium to full crispy dry body.

The beer pours a slightly hazed golden orange with a quarter inch bubbly off-white head. The aroma is caramel, citrus, and notes of yeast and spices. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is mild grapefruit, notes of caramel, and grass. Quite good.

WOW. This is what I’m talking about. Extra hop flavours, Extra drinkability. On desert island beer short list for sure. That aroma. The balance. Where is the bitterness, in a good way.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 From bottle to glass at The Sapphire Room. Little to no head on a beautiful orange/straw body, very minimal lacing on the glass. Noble hop aroma, pine, and orange zest on the nose. Slightly astringent on the palate with a heavier mouthfeel.

Bottle, provided by TylerDurden. Hazy bright yellow body, lively lasting white head. Terrific hop aromatics, lots of pine and citrus, with austere crackery pale malts, very low sweetness and long bitterness. Fantastic stuff!
