3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a clear orangey/golden color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fruity tropical hops with light residual sugars notes is very interesting. Taste is a nice mix between some topical fruity hops with some residual sugars notes and a medium caramel malt backbone. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Solid APA with nice tropical NZ type of hops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from le depanneur chez gibb in rouyn noranda.
Hazy orange pour, small off white head. Huge aroma of sweet hops. Juicy aromas of grapefruit, passion fruit, and sweet mandarin oranges. The galaxy hops are really giving this an impressive tropical fruit aroma. Medium mouth feel, medium carbonation. The finish is quite sweet, with a light bitterness. The tropical fruit lasts throughout, and the finish is very fruity.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (500 ml). Hazy golden/orange with a medium mostly lasting off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is of tropical fruits, red fruits, light resinous notes and hints of soap. Taste is of tropical fruits, red fruits, light to moderate sweetness, malt soapy notes and a moderately but sticky bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium body. Good carbonation. Oily mouthfeel and somewhat dry finish. Drinkable, but too sticky for my liking. The light soapy notes in both flavor and aroma is slightly off, but not enough disturbing to ruin the beer. Very fruity Pale Ale. Decent Pale Ale.
