473ml can from Beerstore at O’Connor, East York, ON. Pours a hazy golden colour and leaves good lacing. Floral aroma with notes of spice and elderberries. Light body, moderate carbonation. Hoppy finish.

Slight fog. Yellow, with nice amount of foam. Aroma is really lemony, with soft cereal backing. Easy to drink. Bubbly. Lemon is a bit overpowering, but it’s a pleasant drink.

RhetoricalAns (440) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
473 mL can. Semi hazy gold-amber pour. Couple fingers of fairly dense white head, some good retention. Nice brew with a fair bit of citrus and resinous pine hops bite. Definitely one I could have a few pints of.

nuplastikk (4852) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2015
16o can courtesy of Rob and Karen. Faded, past its prime aroma...oily vegetal hop residue. A touch of seltzer, not really that impressive at all. Unfiltered hazy tan body. Poor example of the style, at least in the condition I drank it ( 1 month past expiration)

Pour: A cloud amber colored highly carbonated beer with lots of fizz, two fingers of a thick creamy white head that dissipated quicker than expected with the thickness it was. Smell: Very fruity / citrus smell the first thing I thought of was oranges and Richards White. Taste: Initial blast of a citrus orange taste with lots of fizz that went down VERY smooth with a nice orange citrus after taste with almost no bitterness at all. Thoughts: Now this is a beer I could get HAMMERED from, it has the perfect amount of flavor to keep my tastes buds interested but not overwhelm them to the point they need a break, goes down very smooth and is one of those beers the glass is empty before you know it. Endorsement: I would definitely recommend this to friends I could see the people stuck to bland forgetful tastes of the mainstream beers enjoy this, not that it is completely bland or forgetful but it is not LOADED with flavors like other craft beers that tend to shy those people who have been drinking mainstream beers for decades. I think this would be a good gateway beer to introduce newbies to the craft beer trade.

FLBH (2) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2015 does not count
Draught at Novotel North York, Toronto. Not a place I expected to find good beer! Hazy golden colour with a citrus & varnish aroma. Taste is reminiscent of pink grapefruit. Quite fizzy. Bloody lovely!

gregorymconway (167) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
Blind tasting notes. Some tropical fruit is subtle, but some big pine flavors reminiscent of big brother beer Mad Tom. Quite sessionable and smooth.

czar (4929) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2015
pours slightly hazy very pale golden with a small white cap, minimal retention and lacing. dusty mangoes and melons, pale lean crackery maltiness, pepper, citrus. average to light carbonation, light body - watery, light and crisp spicy-citrusy finish. enjoyed!

Yamato (28) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
Looks like white beer. Feels tropical. Big head disappears quickly, and cloudy golden color. Floral and fruity aroma bursts out. Green tea. Good carbonation, filling. moderately hoppy. The bitterness vanishes quickly, which adds freshness. It doesn’t look or taste like IPA.

asheft (2615) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle. Zesty lemon lime aroma with very little malt. Almost clear copper under a wispy white top. Potent Sorachi ace hops flavour that is a little buttery with moderate to medium bitterness and a dry, saison-like finish. Medium carbonation, crisp and refreshing.

[6559-20140725] Tap. Orange petal hops aroma. Clear, orange body with a quick foamy white head. Bitter pine orange resin flavour. Medium body is fairly bitter. Good, nice hops balance. (7/3/8/4/15) 3.7
(@ Fern Resort, Orillia, ON -- enjoyed several pints of it this weekend for my dad’s 70th birthday surprise!)
Overheard: "He likes his nuts." "I do, they’re tasty."
