3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Bar Volo. Somewhat hazy golden/amber with smallish off-white head. The aroma’s really nice, full, warm and fruity, peachy and tropical. Tastes sweet, grapefruit and orange, passion-kind of vitamin C zing on the tongue. Like drinking tinned pineapple juice. Crispish, full, very nice. Vitamin C tingle lingering.

Top: smaller than typical IPA, some rings on glass.
Base: hazy golden ale
Palate : medium bodied, soft carbonation, average for style finish.
Taste: mellow hoppy ale, drinkable and very smooth , easy going. At this strength this one is dangerous session ale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Buster Rhino's Oshawa. Pours a mildly hazy gold with a thick white head. Aromas are rich tropical fruit and citrus with a touch of pine resin. Tastes are also very fruit and citrus heavy with only a moderate pine bite. Medium body, rich and creamy, long resinous finish. This is a great beer.

A fresh can of thrust, canned two days before. The floral hop notes were very pronounced, lovely tropical nose and flavours. Definitely one of my favourites from Great Lakes!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear golden orange with a big frothy white head. Aroma of citrus oranges, stone fruit, grapes, tropical fruits, mangos, orange zest and light medicinal notes. Taste is orange zest, tropical fruits, mangos, guava, grapes, grapefruit and some light medicinal...smooth bitterness and a wicked dry finish. Lightly astringent medicinal character on the finish is the only thing wrong with this but wow this is a great beer!
