COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You won’t be a bystander for long once you’re intoxicated by the aroma of grapefruit and strawberry. Brewed with Australian Galaxy hops and German malts for a big hop flavour of citrus and passion fruit with a sweet malt undertone. It will bedevil you.

pootzboy (1652) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2015
Bottled, on tap a number of places - an amber gold ale with a modest cap which retains well. Aromas of Pac.NW hops and some fruity esters, light malt discernment. Flavor profile follows aroma Fair balance between piney resinous hopping and doughy malts - clean, lightly bitter finish. A 2 dimensional brew but well made with good ingredients. Nothing really stands out - like there aren’t enough Pale ales around, we need another.

jksipa (542) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
Bottle from the brewery. Clear medium amber with a small white head that recedes to a sheet leaving some sparse lace. Light toffee underneath a medium citrus nose along with some pine and floral notes. Taste follow with light sweet honey and toffee supporting a medium bitter middle and long finish. Body is medium light and slightly chewy with average carbonation. Nice, if a tad thin.

MarkoR (726) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2015
500 ml bottle at FIrkin at the Tannery, in Kitchener. Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is hops, citrus. Taste is same. Pretty good and refreshing.

probstblueribbon (3324) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2015
500 ml bottle from the brewery, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma: Fairly strong citrus/grapefruit, there’s an odd and unpleasant savoury/brothy note that I also picked up on tap at the brewery, light to moderate caramel. Palate: Flav.: That brothy/savoury thing comes through a bit more in the flavour, might be phenolic?, still plenty of grapefruit, decent malty backbone; dry with moderate bitterness and a kinda ok, kinda not finish.

I would like to know if this is how it was meant to be...

Freaky_tiki (793) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
Ordered this off the cask near the end of a tight-like-that session at the Victory Cafe after a series of GLB Karma Citra & didn’t think this would stand a chance. I was wrong cuz this is a great pint. Pours beautifully: cloudy brown with a luscious slice of thick foam on top. Chewy as hot asphalt on a summer day. Full flavoured. Leaves some chalkiness at the back of the throat. Must be from all them there beer vitamins. Recommend (on cask if you can get it!).

Spab (2845) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
500 ml bottle from brewery retail store. Pours a clear orange colour with smallish white head. Aroma has some real pot-like character with citric and resiny hops, grains and caramel. Flavour is pot-esque hoppiness, grains, caramel and some citrus. Lighter carbonation. Good.

blankboy (6633) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
[Bottle at ’The Golden Tap Awards’, beerbistro] Pours a murky dark orange with a spare bubbly white head. Aroma is vegetal, fruity and a bit spicy along with bready and yeasty notes. Slightly watery flavour of caramel malt, resiny hops and a harsh finish. Average bodied. Not great.

500 mL bottle. Hazy auburn with a finger off white cap of foam. Hoppy citrus, pineapple and guava on the nose with light caramel malt and slight breadyness. Resinous and sticky, moderate body and carbonation. Fruity-sweet with a balancing bitter finish. Quite tasty.
