Pours a dark copper with fluffy off white head, and the aroma has notes of citrus, spice, roasted malts, toffee, and caramel. Tasting notes include citrus and tropical fruits from the Cascade hops, and nice malty notes of roasted barley, and a slight bitter finish. This is not a bad APA at all! I was pleasantly surprised.

Bottle from LCBO. Pours dark amber with a slightly off white head. Light toffee, light bread aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. I’ve had this numerous times and its possibly better on tap. There’s caramel, lemon, a little tangerine, toast... It’s easy drinking. Nice.

Tapped at the I think Mill Creek pub in Orangeville/Canada.
Floral hops, sweet aroma. The aroma reminds me of an air refresher used for restrooms.
Color copper dark, head creamy and stable, kept a 4mm level.
Taste a balance of malt and hops, malt major. Caramel malt a bit. Really creamy in taste. Full bodied.
Overall a great ale!

This is one of my favorites. This pours a beautiful copper color with a modest head and nice lacing. Nice hoppy aroma. Complex palate. Long finish. Delicious.

Pours copper with a nice white head a little lace. Grassy, citrus, and floral flavours. We get sweetness from the malts with average carbonation. It’s a well balanced APA. Well worth trying.

On tap at Irene’s Pub, Ottawa. Pours amber. Aroma of floral hops with a coniferous note or two. Taste is of the same with a long aftertaste. An old fave.

Bottle. This reminds me more of a brown ale rather than a pale ale. Has a strong malty backbone of nuts, caramel, and toffees. I don’t notice much hop flavour, but it is a good amount of bitterness from the malt buffet. A good hearty pale ale.
