COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Alpha10 (536) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
2014/07/12 - Pours a hazy, dark orange/copper colour with a small, off white, fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is caramel, grapefruit, citrus, pine and grassy notes. Taste is grapefruit, pine, biscuit and caramel. Mildly sweet and mildly bitter. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with soft arbitration and a crisp, mildly drying finish. Full of flavour, but light and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from The Beer Store August 2013. Labeled as "Crazy Canuck". Quite hoppy with citrus and floral aromas that fill the nose. Long finish.

Although the aroma dissapetes quickly, a nice boost of resin. Not too bitter, but ok. Medium bodied. I would have liked it to be more aggressive.

This is probably the best GLB beer that I’ve ever had. Pours a dirty yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is hop and malt. Taste is a blast of hop bitterness with some citrus and malt notes. A little off balance and the bitterness is a little overpowering. But all in all, a great step forward in the IPA/APA development in Ontario.
