omhper (19953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2010
Draught at Oliver twist, Stockholm. Clear ambr, small head. Mid-intensit lychee aroma. Sweetish with rock hard crystal mlt character. Medium bodied with primitive, harsh malt profile and biter grapefruity finish with some aluminium. The harshnesss of the malt renders it edgy and non-refreshing with poor drinkability. The nice hops is just perfume on something non-attractive.

Amber, Cascade aroma; lot of bitterness; not sure if this couldn’t do with some more malts.

(12oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a medium creamy white head. Aroma of perfume, passion fruit, lemon, and orange. Flavor of hops (floral, grassy) and light crystal malt with a dry mouthfeel and bitter finish.

Lubiere (10453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2004
TAP- Clody pale ale, with very nice hops in nose. Lighter in bodied, lacking some malts, and maybe overcabonated.

Sammy (8937) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2007
Their best. Orangey yellow with a fine head. Bitterness apparent. Light mouthfeel, also understated carbonation. I could drink a half pint once. So-so.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2006
Any first impressions?
-A frail veil floats atop the translucid golden amber.
-Beauteous orangey, leafy, juicy hops dally about for a classic American Pale Ale perfume.
-Authentic orange pulp garnishes the honeyed malts.
-The slick, almost watery maltiness is rustled by tiny, prickly bubbles.

What if you dig deeper?
-Herbal, leafy hop bitterness is there, never imposing itself.
-Modest maltiness increases drinkability, but may bore the taster.
-An approachable A.P.A., unmemorable but it is well-brewed and competently quenches.

Bottle; no date.

jercraigs (8060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2005
Draft at Coles in Buffalo. Amber body with a small white head. (3+) Moderate hoppy aroma, citrusy orange with notes of lemon. Flavour is quite nice, lots of citrusy hops - grapefruit - is quite pleasant and avoids becoming too harsh or astringent. Decent amount of malt to back it up. Pithy grapefruit lingers pleasantly in the aftertaste. Average to medium palate. Very much liked this. Underrated in my opinion.

Clear pale golden colour with tiny white head. Aroma: Fruity bitter hops. Pine and pineapple. American hops. Flavour: Dry piney hops. Bitterness. Balanced.
