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.

blankboy (6139) - 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.

2014-09-17. Hazy dark orange body moderate head. Aroma is pleasant but muddled, citrusy hop character, light yeast notes. 6+ Flavour is sweet up front, caramel malt character with muddled citrusy hop bitterness. 6+ Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Shows potential but doesn’t quite deliver. At the Golden Tap Awards, Beer Bistro, Toronto

Cloudy orange pour. Aroma of orange peel, light lime and soft bitterness. Light resin and a bit of malt sweetness. Rich but balanced with a slightly dusty/crackery finish. Tasty brew.

Bottled sample at ribeye jacks in Meadowvale. Cloudy orangey colour. Very hoppy. Not as malty as I thought. Very good pale ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft - Grapefruit and some pine, with a touch of sweet tropical fruit. Hazy gold with a rich white head. Pine and resinous hops with a derby finish. Big on hops, little balance.

neuromatt (1168) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
500 mL bottle from Moose and Lisa, served in a branded tulip. Pours slightly hazy orange-golden with a small off-white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has delicate notes of grapefruit, citrus peel and tropical fruit paired up with caramel and pale malts. The flavour is surprisingly bitter with huge citrus peel, pine and subtle tropical fruit; this overpowers the comparably soft caramel malts. The finish is long and bitter with lots of citrus peel and a touch of pepper. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a slightly acidic texture and soft carbonation. Overall, an interesting APA: starting out with a soft, delicate and fairly complex fruity nose, it proceeds to whip you with a massive citrus peel bitterness that is tasty but completely unexpected from the nose. Once you get past the shock, it’s a nice brew; surprisingly flavourful for the 4.7% ABV. 2014-08-24

zimbo (577) - SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2014
The quality and promise of the beer Steve produced in Scotland have been rewarded with his purpose built brewery in Waterloo. And from what I’m tasting he seems to be sliiping into fifth gear. Gorgeous beautiful tropical fruit and red berry nose. Hazy light yellowish colour with a silky glossy full white head which goes the distance. Soft yet firm and supple on the tongue with cleansing straw and fruit. The middle palate fades slightly but by the end the after taste recovers leading to a very long and satisfying finish. Great core strength and structure which hold up very well over the course of the glass and pushes out from the centre. Impressive and very well crafted.

Pours great deep golden colour with white frothed head. Aroma is strong of citrus and grapefruit. Taste is a bit of sweetness that melds into a finishing dryness. Caramel, dough, bread, notes in taste.
