Light yellow color with strong line and citrus aromas. Almost watery at the start but finishes nice. Good IPA

Cimbasso (642) - - MAY 11, 2016
Sampled on draught in Ottawa. A hazy, light gold colour with a thin, white head. Hoppy aromas, and a good well-balanced taste with plenty of malt and citrusy hops, with notes of apricot and grapefruit. Excellent mouthfeel for a low ABV beer. Highly drinkable.

Moolesen (423) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2016
Can 47,3cl. Light golden with a white head. Hoppy aroma, citrus. Nice easy drinkable. Lot of taste despite it’s only 4,3 alc/vol.

sulawang (916) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
Visual: Pours clear golden orange with a smallish dissipating head, thin large island retention, just a few slow micro streams. Nose: apricot tangerine citrusy. (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: crisp-citrusy malty Mid-palate: fizzy-almost creamy, (lvl-2-sweetness), apricot-grapefruity, Finish: dry lager grainy barley malt, soft bitter hops, thinnish body. Summary: Approachable malty citrusy flavour, but a tad thin - can’t expect too much for 4.3%er.

Subliminal64 (83) - London, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Bought as part of a Muskoka Mixer Pack. Smells like an IPA, just not as potent. Pours a slightly cloudy gold colour. Head that lasts to the end. Taste is IPA, but the Hops are very mild. Similar to Bells Two Hearted, but a little stronger, and not quite as full flavour. Good amount of carbonation. Overall I was pleasently surprised. I don’t typically like Hoppy IPA’s, but this was very drinkable, and refreshing. Another grand slam by Muskoka brewery. WIll buy mixer pack again.

Papillon (394) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
473 mL Can. Murky gold body with a thin but tenacious head, clinging and leaving blotchy lace. Aroma of sweet light malts and mildly resiny hops, a hint of caramel. The flavor is a beautiful balance of light sweet malts and hops, an absolutely assertive beer taste with an aftertaste and linger of pink grapefruit and grapefruit rind. A juicy, thirst-quenching finish. Bonus points for the exceptional taste and finish. Will made the Detour to pick up a case or two for camp.

ChadPoole (136) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Pours cloudy gold with a small white head. Good hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and pine. Tastes of bitter hops, citrus fruits and grains. The Tastes seemed slightly muted,  with such a bold aroma I expected more. But still a decent beer.

Tranquillity (1719) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
Canned. Slightly hazy body, dark yellow with a big foamy head. The aroma is very fruity, peach and some berries. The taste is very refreshing and it has some spiciness and exotic flavors (pineapple?) to it. Not bad at all!

DSG (10834) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 31, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks troubles. Clear golden. Nice hoppy aroma with lots of citrus, some tropical fruits, and a bit of graininess. Flavor has mild sweetness, graininess, and bitterish citric hops. Light to medium-bodied.
