Pours a hazy deep golden with a small white top. Aroma is earthy hop with a small spicy characteristic. Taste is a not bad earthy pine hop flavouring with a low bitterness.

lacyhead (21) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Light amber colour with amber white head that doesn’t last. Citrusy caramel aroma. Thin mouth feel. Citusy hop flavour and that is about all. Not very complex. An OK beer at best; will never be a favourite.

Can from the LCBO. Pours a slightly hazy very light amber with an off white head. Nose is citrus and faint caramel. Quite sweet with hint of bitterness. Medium mouth and carbonation with not much of a finish. Easy drinking but not much character.

*Beer Review* Hop City Happy Hour Pale Ale Lots of white foamy head that is lasting forever. Smells soapy and citrusy. Very mild. It’s got a hoppy bitterness but its subtle and fades quickly. Also a bit sweet. Refreshing and easy to drink. Really pleasant. I’ve found that I really like everything Hop City makes.

lesifflebiere (1038) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 13, 2013
Ambrée, belle couleur or jaune, avec une couche de mousse blanche assez respectable ; semble plutôt pétillante et mince. En nez, houblons américains (peut-être même seulement du Cascade), avec un peu de raisins et de sucre cuit. Au goût, c’est plutôt tranquille, mais sympathique : pas vraiment d’amertume, et elle est même dotée d’une finale penchant vers l’aqueux, mais il s’agit d’une bonne APA selon les normes. Le genre de bière qui convient aux débutants dans le style.
