It’s been said that “Canada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an identity.” This beer doesn’t help much with that crisis. From the fiercely irresponsible stereotypical image on the front of the can to the distinctly American style of the beer inside it – we’ve really made a mess of things. What have we done? Sorry.

Hazy orange body, rhick white foamy head. The aroma is very full, with grapefruit and orange, some flowers. Excellent palate, medium heavy. The taste is fruity as well, with a slow to start but long to mature and finish aftertaste that has hops and even some nuts. Wow!

Damn good APA... Awesome citrus Aroma with grapefruit, light pine, orange peel and sweet pale malts. Flavor is pale malts, citrus hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits and good balance of bitterness throughout... Almost perfect for an APA.

Eyes tell me it’s clear Golden and fizzy and got some bubbles. Nose smells me grapefruit, varied citrus, choicest peppery hops and a quality malt arrangement. Mouth confirms that which nose reports, rejoices at bitter sweet harmony. Palate is refreshed and thanks GLB. Wonderful. Bravo.

Really strong taste of caramel on this one. Tastes like a good pale ale but has a bitter bite at the end.

473ml can from LCBO. Aroma: tropical fruits, pineapples, oranges. App: hazy golden, small white ring in the middle. Taste and palate: medium body, resinous, average carbonation, clean light bitter finish. Overall: not bad but finish is too clean for me and not enough bitter.

Not bad, served from draught and they called it the Crazy Canuck. Nice scent with a nice color, initial taste is God without any aftertaste, not sure if it's a pale ale or IPA but it tastes fine ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy with multiple particles. Aroma: mango, grassy bitterness. Taste: moderate bitterness with light moderate to light sweeteness. Flavour: mango, light fruits, hay, medicinal herbs. Short aftertaste with grassy bitterness. Good beer with slightly unusual grassy notes.
