3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy straw with two fingers of pillowy white head, good retention and excellent lacing. (4/5) Nose is juicy citrus, catty, pine resin, very little malt. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet giving way to moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, building bitter finish. (4/5)
No bottle date, but I got it via trade the day it was sourced from GLB (a few days ago). Typical catty Simcoe notes, but not overwhelming. Maybe a little too sharp and bitter to be a simple thirst quencher, but pretty pleasant. Another good treatment of the Simcoe hop, and actually very similar to the Bellwoods Cat Lady I had yesterday. (15/20)

Bright and zesty aroma of lemon and grapefruit and morning sunshine and tastes of another load of citrusy hops. Very juicy and very hoppy. A fantastic summer patio beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Draught at Bryden’s, Toronto) Pours a very pale slightly hazy straw yellow with a decent-sized head of white bubbles. Aroma almost all hops, catty, grapefruit and fresh dank, quite pungent and a good expression of the hop. Flavour follows the nose, dank grapefruit hops dominating a light pale malt backbone with very little sweetness, citrusy bitterness taking from the middle of the palate on through the finish. Dry and crisp. Over-carbonated in draught form, body fairly light but style-appropriate. Summer quencher. The tall cans I had were not as enjoyable.

Lazy spring afternoon pour on deck with cigar & horror magazine on the go. Crispy goodness with a stark palate. Not as tasty as some of their other tank ten offerings but good pour.
