On tap at Bar Hop. Great C-hop aroma, loads of citrus, but there is still a solid bready maltiness. Good carb, solod mouthfeel. Great citrusy finish. Just an all around great session pale ale, not too hoppy, but you get loads of great hop flavor, could drink it all night!

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.

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

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

piscator34 (1948) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottled sample. Gold in colour, with slight haze and medium carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, pale malt, white pepper, and kitchen herbs. Juicy pink grapefruit and cut grass dominate the palate, backed by some light pale malt. Solid bitterness. Fresh and refreshing. Surprisingly good.

Very nice beer. I haven’t figured out all the tastes but the bitterness came out well.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 On tap at Cloak & Dagger. Nice juicey hop aroma. Tropical fruits and citrus. Same for the taste. Mild bitterness. Lovely session APA.
