KansaiBeerLvrs (2726) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2014
On tap at Hopfenstark Ho.st. As Four Surfers of the Apocalypse. A classic amber/copper color with a solid light beige head and a malty fruity hop aroma. Med-full bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. The taste is balanced biscuity malts and bitter pine not as complex as I was expecting but still quite good and you gotta love the name.

600ml bottle. Cloudy blonde with a frothy white head. Flavors are wheat, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lychee and pine with spicy and floral notes. Light to medium body, moderate to high carbonation, smooth texture.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
Pale golden pour with a thick white head. Cloudy and very attractive. The nose is quite lovely - a bit of tropical fruit, mango, kiwi and some light fruit as well a moderately warming feeling. A touch of pepper and some nice soft hoppiness. It has a nice freshness that is quite appealing. Soft and bright and tropical. Lovely beer.

stantheman (693) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
On tap at ST Augustine’s in Vancouver. A very pale ale indeed, and though nicely balanced flavours here, it’s a bit too delicate for this cat. 3.1.

Oakes (13156) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Hazy blonde, slightly catty aroma, maybe orchard fruit hops, a touch of yeasty esters. Has a fresh fruity character, the usual dry, assertive "pale hoppy" that TdD does so well.

Bottle. Nice interpretation of the style. Very hazy. Good balance between hops & the white beer. Dryness and lively carbonation are welcome. Very good drinkability.

dandeman (616) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Olfactif: Effluves intenses de résine de sapin avec notes de poivre. Nez intense à longue persistance. Quelques notes de gazon frais également. Visuel: Jaune / doré, claire, mousse généreuse, dense, au maintient éternel qui colle bien au verre en y laissant de belles traces. Gustatif: Les notes de poivre, de muscade, les épices piquantes, se transforment en résine intense en fin de bouche. Les sucres développent de la mangue, du miel, des poires et des fruits tropicaux. Excellente complexité. Excellent équilibre fruits / sucre / amertume. En bouche, la texture est généreuse et les saveurs restent longtemps. Belle complexité. Une bière dont l’olfactif n’annonce en rien l’explosion de saveurs qu’elle développe. Quel mélange parfait de résine et de fruits. Par contre, je ne vois pas beaucoup d’éléments représentant une blanche comme le prétend la description sur l’étiquette. C’est sans contredit une IPA pure laine.

mcberko (8426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
650mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out floral hops, light Belgian yeast and crackery malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with a nice dry palate, including dry crackery malt, a touch of Belgian yeast and floral hops. Very well-balanced, dry and drinkable. Decent stuff.

Gerbeer (2213) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
600 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow/gold with huge head. Aromas of citrus, yeast, grapes, and melons. Flavors of tropical fruit, pine, lemons and toasted malts. Truly fruity. Very nice. Easy to drink on a summer aft.
