Light amber pour with a tight creamy white head. The aroma is quite citrusy. Orange and some light stone fruit as well. Tangerine and peach with a soft sweet pale malt base backing it up. A little bit of soft sweetness but the hops are more than enough to counter the brew. Bright and zesty with a nice fruity component to the brew as well. Assertively hopped and very delicious. Solid, solid stuff.

Juicy citrus, even some mango. No malts to speak of, just a good dose of apa level hops. Great carb, great palate. Medium bitterness. Such a great session beer. Bottle this! Nevermind the hoptical illusion!

[4334-20120316] Tap. Mild petrol peat leaf aroma has an underlying toasted evergreen hops. Clear, orange amber body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter toasted resin hops flavour has a lingering piney aftertaste. Medium body. Quite tasty! (8/3/7/4/16) 3.8

Draught at Volo, March 16. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a small long-lasting frothy white head. Mild aroma is malty and fruity along with some light hops -- smell pretty good. Flavour of caramel malt, decent amount of hops and a touch of grain. The hops show up mainly in the average, somewhat long lasting bitter finish. Medium bodied. A decent Ontario Pale Ale.

A decent pale, emphasizing citra of all thinks. Good drinkability, slightly hazy lightly golden body. Understated IBU.

Another hoppy monster! Same blast to the nose and palate as Smashbomb, but a little drier. Only had it on tap - hope it’ll come in a bottle. You may scoff at the perfect score, but I can’t imagine a beer being any more enjoyable.

Like SmashBomb’s little brother. Had on tap at Food & Drink Fest Hamilton. Pours clear and gold with good hop character but without the intense bitterness.
