3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Very hoppy; citrus, grapefruit, lemon and herbal notes.
Appearance: Gold with copper glimmers, large creamy and long lasting head; sticking and leaving a very nice lacing .
Taste: Attack is all citrus with strong grapefruit notes. Cascade is dominant. Love this hop. That beer is smooth, round, and doesn’t hit the tongue. Grapefruit flavors are dominant but combined with fresh herbal and hay accents. Bitter and smooth at the same time this is more like an American pale ale to me. And a good one!

Draught at Canoe Restaurant, Toronto
Dark amber color with creamy head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, maybe some fudge. Very good toffee flavor, with smooth mouthfeel, and correct bitterness; the hop is quite resiny; long final. Balanced and bold. Very good.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is very full with grassy hop aromas as well as sweet carmel, and earthy soil-like notes. The colour is between ruby and golden brown. Pours with a thick, but fine beige pillowy head. Medium or medium-heavy sweetness with a bitter finish. Enters mouth slightly creamy, and leaves with some astringency.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big, long lasting frothy head, smells of citrus, a little caramely. Beautiful amber colour. Citrusy, bitter hops on impact, a bit creamy and bubbly, bitter lingers on back of tongue. A hoppy ale for certain. Fresh and delicious.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Bouteille 750 ml. 2012. 7%. Couleur ambrée foncée, mousse beige-blanche. Arôme de céréales, herbes, houblon, grains, fraîcheur d’automne. En bouche, wow surprenant, maltée, herbeuse, balancée, bonne...beaucoup de houblon floral et amer... Amertume en finale, pas trop, juste assez, malt. Excellente. Version 2013 plus de caramel.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear rusty brown pour with a tone of foamy head. It was lacing by the time I tried to get a picture of it. Fresh cut field smell, not grass but like a local park with wildflowers. Hops and grapefruit also in the nose. Very light compared to the other beers I’ve had tonight. Usually autumn seasonals are thicker and have more body. This reminds me of a Pale Ale. It’s got that hops bite in the back of the throat and it goes down very light. This would be fantastic if I liked true Pale Ales. Unfortunately I don’t and this wasn’t at all what I expected. I know people that will love this, like my wife, but it’s not really for me. Even my wife finds it odd because it’s not a pale ale but it has hints of one.

Pours a dark amber colour with a big thick creamy head. The aroma starts strong alc. then a soapy fruit hop aroma. The flavour is caramel sweet and citrus with a light hoppy herb body is thick on the palate and a nice bitterness from the dry hopping.
