Rich citrusy and piny aroma made of 100% Falconer’s Flight hops. 65IBU balance with nice malt presence to keep it easy drinking as a Pale Ale should be.

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
October 20, 2013 - gravity cask at Cask Days 2013. Orange pour, cloudy, with a small bubbly off-white head. Aroma and taste of pineapple, mango, citrus zest with emerging pine bitterness - very smooth, minimal alcohol presence; solid body, decent cask carbonation, borderline sweetness never emerges after the slow-building medium bitter finish kicks in - good beer.

Pours hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus and grape. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long malty, caramel, citrus and grape finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
Liquide dorée-ambré avec un col mousseux respectable. Nez floral, d’agrumes et de caramel. En bouche c’est un peu a l’aspect métallique avec un beau mélange de pamplemousse de caramel et une belle touche floral. Corp moyen, carbonation moyenne, une finale assez amère. Une pale ale hors de l’ordinaire qui a quelques défauts mais sans plus!

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Dégustée (en fût) le 30 mai 2013 au Mondial 2013 à Montréal (D3C3K424i). Bière limpide blonde dorée. Col mince peu durable. Peu effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de pamplemousse marquée. Très douce, très peu sucrée, un peu amère. Saveur de pamplemousse bien présente, de résine (pin). Un peu acide mais pas trop. Bonne en son genre.

j12601 (8700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2013
On tap at Station Ho.st. Pours a lightly hazed golden amber with a medium to large white head. A little bit of a dusty paper note on the nose, with some musky hops behind it all. Medium bodied, soft muskiness over some dusty malt. A bit of sage and lemon. Soft musk into the finish. Tasty.

Cask Days 2013. Pale amber pour the nose is fruity and citrusy. Lots of lemon and tropical fruit over a nice toasted malt base. A bit of toffeeish sweetness and some nice fruitiness. Assertive bitterness. Lovely

Drank at Bieres et Saveurs Chambly 2012.The color is a hazy amber with a thin beige head.The aroma is of malt,hops and herbs.The taste also of hops and spicies that give it a sweet taste.It has a very good finish overall a good example of an A.P.A.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a large white head. Aromas are fruit, citrus, pine and maybe a little biscuit. Taste is resinous pine and dry grainy malts (rye?). Light bodied, medium carbonation, and a lengthy astringent bitter finish. Nice APA but not spectacular, in fact the assertive hop profile and long bitter finish makes me think this would be better classified as an IPA.
