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.

hawthorne00 (3500) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2016
Can. Very cloudy pale amber with a white head. Floral and grapefruity aroma with some pine, biscuit. Pine creeps up in the taste a bit to become a little mentholish and eventually is too much for the lovely citrus (herbal lemon is an accent to the grapefruit) and rather light malt that’s a bit bready as well as biscuity. Medium high bitterness with a fairly dry finish.

bulldogops (2236) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
Rating #1863 - 2015.08.14 - Draught @revolutionyeg Dark amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is sweet citrus, lemon, and orange. Taste is a blast of citrusy sweetness, tempered by an explosion of hoppy bitterness, drying out the finish, but leaving the palate demanding another sip. Balanced, and extremely drinkable.

HKdIPA (675) - HONG KONG - AUG 15, 2016
Tall can from Grand Electric in Toronto. Light bubbly golden pour. Aroma is sweet fruity hops with pineapple and mango. Taste is similar - sweet fruit like mango with citrus bitter bite. Palate is light but not as light as I thought it would be. Really nice. Collective Arts - three for three on this trip of the beers from them I’ve tried. Great big pale ale.

12oz bottle into chalice. Pours a hazy orange/amber with half a finger of white velvety head, lasting, with much lacing. Nose of sharp northwest hops, grapefruit; grapefruit predominant flavour-wise, with a very sharp, dry bitter finish, resinous mouthfeel.

pumpkinhead2 (834) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2016
Bière jaune tirant un peu vers l’orangée, parfaitement trouble avec fines particules visibles, effervescence moyenne-bonne, et surmontée d’un col blanc pas tellement large, mais très dense, très mousseux, cotonneux même, et très résistant. Arômes de pâtisserie, sucre d’orge et malt mielleux, accompagné d’un houblon principalement fruité (orange, mangue, cantaloup, pêche). Les effluves sont étrangement lourds et ils manquent de fraîcheur, odeur cartonné (oxydation?), sirop de fruits tropicaux… Je remarque à l’instant un code sur le bas de la bouteille qui semble indiquer un embouteillage le 27 juin 2015. J’ai peur que cette bière acheté il y a quelques jours à la SAQ soit un peu vieille… Les arômes me semble également un peu épicé, mais davantage dans les phénols que le houblon… Nez ordinaire qui annonce peut-être un produit problématique, complexité et intensité adéquates. En bouche, pétillement moyen-élevé sur la langue, onctuosité intéressante au palais, c’est soyeux et velouté. Au goût, pâtisserie et sucre pâle (sucre brut à tendance mielleux…), houblon principalement fruité (orange et fruits tropicaux) mais également un peu résineux. On retrouve cette impression de «manque de fraîcheur» en bouche, difficile de dire si c’est un effet voulu par le brasseur, ce n’est pas particulièrement désagréable, seulement un peu étrange. Goût moyen, complexité moyenne en bouche, bonne intensité. Tout juste une bonne bière, sans plus… [Je ne l’ai pas notée trop sévèrement, étant donné la date présumée d’embouteillage, plus de 11 mois…]

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.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a hazy golden colour with white head. Aroma is slightly catty with pine resin. Taste is about the same.
