GuillaumeCL (343) - Toronto, Ontario, - JAN 29, 2013
Pours a clear sparkling dark yellow with a whole lots of foamy white head and some visible carbonation. Smell is definite hops, lots of citrus, and a bit of a fruitier variety mixed with a bit of sweet toffee maltiness. Palate is medium bodied with a bit under average carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet at first then really quite bitter, and it stays bitter for quite a while. A competent APA.

Bottle. Hazy orange gold body, thin white head. Aroma of citrus, orange, some other tropical fruits, and pine. Taste is the usual grapefruit and pine profile. moderate body, semi dry and bitter finish.

Pours a nice clean pale amber, frothy white head and perfect carbonation. Mild citrus and pine flavours on the palate, and just enough bitterness from the hops to make it interesting. 4.9% makes it a reasonable brew for a work night. So far the closest thing to my "perfect" beer that I’ve found yet. Well done!

Reimer96 (1273) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Pours a clear medium orangish amber with a nice frothy white head. Aroma of pale malts, caramel, citrus and piney hops. Taste is sweet malts balanced well with citrus, pine and light resin with a medium bitterness. Excellent balance of hops and malts.

HippyHop (150) - CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
This is a nice sessionable IPA. It lacks a little bit of character in the middle section, but it’s got a nice nose and a nice dry finish. The usual APA fare: orange, grapefruit, a bit of pine. A bit of caramel from a decent, but slightly flimsy malt. As a tasting beer, this is good, and worth a try. As a sesh beer it’s extremely drinkable. Similar to, but not quite as good as, Rhyme and Reason by Collective Arts.

lesifflebiere (1289) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2014
Blonde mi-mince qui se trouble à mesure que son important dépôt de levure vient la brouiller ; nez en houblons floraux et fruités. Petite couronne de mousse. La bouche est savoureuse, fruitée elle aussi, avec une finale tout juste herbacée qui donne une signature épicée, plutôt qu’amère. Douce mais savoureuse, désaltérante tout en étant assez dense, elle est un excellent exemple de ce genre, bien qu’elle ne soit pas exactement originale.

Niall73 (1831) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle from lcbo. Pours a hazy orange/yellow with a white head. Aroma is fruity with pineapple, light caramel and orange. Light to medium body, light carbonation. Orange, white bread, light caramel, grass, pine, lemon... Lovely balanced light quaffable beer. Nice bitter finish too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Karol (643) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle bought at the Nickelbrook brewery in Burlington/Canada. Overall a fantastic American pale ale. I fell in love with this style during my Canada visit in June and early July 2014. I had many American pale ales in that time in Toronto and this one is definitely among them.

Poured from the tap. Clear pale yellow with white head. Hoppy aroma, light caramel malt and citrus on the taste. Body is a little bit light.

Thick and dense yellow colour. A delight to look at actually but a very strong aftertaste that is metallic and abrasive. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
