3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle poured into pint glass. Pours amber with off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma of hops, flowers, caramel. Taste is lots of hops, a little citrus and caramel malt. Well-balanced with a bitter finish. This beer is a standout in the Ontario craft beer scene. Very nice.

Pours sparkling clear dark copper colour, great up front spicy hop smell hits right away from the light frothy white head.
Medium bitter hop taste lingers, on a creamy background with a malt backup

Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours hazy copper with off white head. The aroma is spicy rye like, spicy hops, a bit earthy with mild sweet malts in the background. The taste is malt forward and a bit buttery. The hops come to the surface with notes of spice, some earthiness and mild pine. In the background sweet malts persist into the finish.

Bouteille partagée avec Jcwattsrugger.
Couleur cuivre, mousse est beige.
Quelques notes de citron et de mat caramel. Palais est sec avec une bonne effervescence.
Reste bien légère au palais tout en conservant une fine couche d’amertume avec en retrait, un fini moyennement malt et grillé.

Pours nice copper with a decent head. Aroma and taste is of good quality malts and freshly harvested (and end-of-process added) hops, which gives this floral and citrus freshness to the beer, without being too bitter. A good APA with high drinkability.

355ml bottle - at ChrisO’s - thanks!
6 Simple hoppy aroma, some citrus.
4 Deep copper, medium head
7 Hoppy retronasaly, very citrussy and zesty. Malty body, but with tons of hops there too. Fairly well balanced. I even get a hint of ginger too.
3 Slick palate, carbonation low.
14 A little sweet, and a little too hop focussed, but they’ve pulled it off well.
