COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes our neighbours are just too enticing to resist! In this case, our newest ward-winning product pays homage to our naughty neighbours to the south, as our American Pale Ale has something for everyone! For hop lovers, the huge aroma of citrus and pine greet the nose and the hops continue on the palate as hoppy flavour persists, leaving a remarkably easy drinking crisp, dry finish. We pack all this hop aroma and flavour in a brew that is only 4.9% on purpose, which leaves a hugely sessionable beer that is perfectly refreshing on hot summer days! No additives. No preservatives. Naturally carbonated for a smooth, crisp finish.

Pours cloudy gold with a frothy white head that laces the glass. Bold hoppy and citrus aroma. Good balance taste of citrus and tropical fruits, hops and a bit of malts. Good beer.

This was fine, big bold hop aroma, but seemed a bit thin on the body. I’d order this one again knowing that it is below 5%.

Listigovers (875) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2016
Very cloudy golden beer. Smells orange, citrus and some resin. Light-medium bodied with good carbonation and hop crispness. Lightly bitter finish, really easy drinking, good.

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
473 mL Can. Deep gold body with a 3-finger frothy head settling but clinging and leaving blotchy lace. Grapefruit rind is first in line in the aroma, intense resiny hops, notes of grass and clover. A definite IPA taste of sweet light malts and grapefruit rind hops, citrus-sour astringent aftertaste, grapefruit rind finish. Perhaps a bit thin-bodied for a real IPA.

rumproasts (4862) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2016
bottle. Golden with three finger head. A gusher when I popped the cap, definitely overcarbonated. Medium body with caramel and earthy, herbal notes. Moderate hop bitterness. Would be much better without the carbonation issues.

DSG (11505) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 10, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks troubles. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Lovely fruity hoppy aroma, citric and slightly tropical. Flavor is quite dry, with lots of citric and slightly tropical hops. Medium-bodied. Good one.

milewide (2039) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2016
Extreme gusher!!! Right out of frig and carefully handled. Lots of floaties, which I like. Aroma and flavor decent...but not unique.

Look, this is an IPA, so get it there. Bottle, nice label. Hoppy perfume aroma. Nice hazy pour & head. Big nasty on style bitter taste. Thicker, pungent. Good co2, tho. Yes, a strong roll your tongue up IPA blast, not sessionalbe AFAIC. An affront to my gentle lager loven taste buds, whew. Nice titillating label. Yeeeeahhhaaassss. Brewed with science to be as bitter hoppy as possible, if it was just a little thicker, it may go into the imperial IPA flavors.
