probstblueribbon (3008) - 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 (611) - 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 (1939) - 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.

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 (577) - 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.

crazy_cat_lady (142) - - OCT 21, 2014
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.

deepeary (153) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
330 ml bottle from LCBO. BB 06.2016. Says 5.9% abv on bottle. Pours cloudy yellow. Smell is hoppy, citrus, pine, toasted malt. Taste is pretty mild, crisp, refreshing. Slight tartness. Some fruity notes on the finish. Malt comes through. Not too impressive.
