HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2015
750 ml bottle from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a clear straw yellow with a couple fingers of white head that fade rapidly leaving little lace.

Aroma: Hops, grapefruit, bit of bread

Flavours: Grapefruit, lemon, lime and other citrus. Sweeter flavours like apple and peach come out after the beer is open for a bit.

Mouthfeel: Thinner with average carbonation.

Overall: An interesting blend of citrus that turns towards the sweet side after the beer is open a while. I found it a little on the thin side but the interesting flavours made this one an enjoyable beer.

750 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is floral, fruits, honey. Taste is same, plus grassy hops. This is a pretty good beer.

Alpha10 (617) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2015
2015/10/19 - Pours a clear golden, straw colour with a thin, soapy, white head that quickly reduces and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is light grain, pine, lychee, watermelon, citrus and a hint of honey. Taste follows nose; lychee, tropical fruits, lemon, honey, biscuit and mild pine. Mouthfeel is medium with slightly biting at carbonation and a long, drying, slightly bitter finish. Really nice aroma, but the flavor seems a little muted. Overall, very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HippyHop (603) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
It's interesting to see the myriad of different reviews for this stuff. *I* get more tropical fruit than citrus. Lots of floral hops, watermelon, kiwi (good call Tiki), lychee, lime, biscuit/honey malt. Nose is very pleasant but quite faint. Tropical fruitiness really comes through in the taste. Light malt, fairly high carbonation, and some mild balancing bitterness on the finish. Nice stuff, with a neat taste profile, but lacks some oomph. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (14406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a clear dull golden with a medium white head. Nose is very strange, with strange earthy and armpit notes, and biscuity malt on the back end. Flavour is just as strange, with earthy, fungal notes, armpits and biscuity malt. This is very dull and rather off. Not a disaster, but not good.

KoNrRiI (1218) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2015
0.75 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of hops, pines, citruses, a tad of resin, grass, and a bit of grains. Taste is sweet and sour, grainy, perhaps only delicately bitter with a strong, hoppy character. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is a bit off as it features some odd, vegetable notes. Overall the beer seems to have been blown out of proportion - agreeable but not as good as promised.

bunget (844) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2015
750ml bottle from LCBO. Hazy golden body, small white head, average retention. Delicate floral aroma of apricots and peaches, acacia honey, orange flowers, a touch of lemon. Taste of grains, a touch of grapefruit zest, grassy hops. Very well made.

Listigovers (907) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2015
Aroma is really grassy, cut lawn. Looks pale and effervescent, quickly dissipating white head to lasting lace. Flavor is also grassy and very fresh, juicy, not very bitter but the hops build, good to offer the taste of fresh hops.

piscator34 (2345) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 24, 2015
Draft. Pale orange in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of green wet hops, cut grass, and pale malt. Very grassy and grainy in the mouth, but with some orange peel elements as well. A bit slick on the palate too. Not bad, but a bit too grassy for me.

Ferris (12741) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
Draft - Sweet caramel and candy like sweetness. Clear copper with a decent white head. Sweet lemon candy and light caramel. Very sweet and candy like.
