blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
[Bottle (330ml)] Pours a cloudy gold with a large lasting fluffy white head. Aroma is quite citrusy first followed by tropical fruit and caramel malt. Moderately hoppy flavour, equally malty and quite fruity. Average bitter finish. Medium bodied. Not as hoppy as I like my Pale Ales to be, just good not great.

olio (6521) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours hazy orange color with a medium sized head. Very herbal and crisp fruity aroma, mandarin mostly, lots of fresh hops here too. Nice fruity sweet flavor with mandarin and orange, some faint gooseberries too, a bit watery but not too much. Extremely quaffable and refreshing. This, for one, would be a great example of a Session IPA style brew were I to recognize such a style. Very nice!

cfrancis (2510) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours hazy gold with a small frothy white top. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruit with great hop flavours. Taste is moderate to high bitterness, citrus and tropical hops with biscuit malt and nicely acidic. Opps glass is empty, should have bought more. Great beer for 4.6%

probstblueribbon (3067) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
330 ml bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass. Rated as the Forfar/Sommer 2014 version.

App.: Murky golden with a full, off-white head. Aroma: Strong hop character – resinous, citrusy and spicy, with an odd sulphur note (H2S, boiled eggs), slightly meaty/brothy, hard to get past the sulphur, unfortunately. Palate: Medium body, lively carbonation. Flav.: Resin, citrus and tropical fruits, a bit of cat pee, much less sulphur (still detectable), with a light malt backbone; dry with fairly good bitterness, a little bright acidity and a light malt, citrus and faint cat pee finish.

A bit messy.

Freaky_tiki (642) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
This beer is so cloudy you can see the storm clouds gathering in the bottle. Pour in the glass is a murky sunburst yellow with a mushy fat finger cap. Not sure if this is actually brewed with fruit but it is pineapple on the tongue. Hops are round & chewy but you can just tell they’ve aged a little on their travels. Good brew.

TheJester (1962) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
330 mL bottle. Quite hazy amber gold with a small, sticky, white head. Slightly sour citrus and sweet Equatorial fruit in the nose. And in the flavour, actually. Pineapple stands out, but is not overpowering. Decent bitterness for balance. Solid body for the style. Gotta be more than 4.6!?! An excellent APA.

Plovmand (6602) - Helsinge, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2014
On tap. Pours hazy golden with a medium white head. The aroma is peach, citrus and passion fruit. Also in flavor. Simcoe and citra!

Frothmeister (587) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy light gold with an off-white head. Huge fruit on the nose, grapefruit, passionfruit, pineapple, some resinous notes. Taste wise, bitter with a surprising amount of resinous notes tied in with the tropical fruit, mineral notes, and a light hit of woody malt the leads into a bitterness that kind of peters out into a disappointing stale bitter finish. Bit of a letdown.

Oct. 19, 2014. Bottle from LCBO.. Really appreciating the LCBO fall feature on Mikkeller! Pillowy, fluffy white head. Golden opaque yellow. Nice lacing. Lemon, hops, straw nose. Not as hoppy as expected based on the aroma. Lemon, straw flavours. Bitterness is subdued.
