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.

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.

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 (2178) - 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 (8442) - 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.

Light citrus on the nose. I get more citrus, a bit of lemon zest, some tropical fruit and a dollop of sweetness. Nicely balanced but uninspiring.

A murky amber pour with a very active thick white head. Aromas are very light citrus. Some peach and faint mild tangerine. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Tastes are similar to aromas. Maybe a very light caramel finish. I take partial blame for this one as Nickel Brook said DO NOT AGE! on the bottle, and I sat on it for a few months, but I have the feeling that even fresh, this was far from a spectacular brew. Have to score it based on what I am drinking. It is what it is.

750 mL bottle. Hazy gold pour, medium off-white head, some residual lacing. Fairly mild aroma, what is there is tropical fruit, floral hops. Taste has a thin malt base, a little sweet, some hoppiness throughout. Overall was a a bit weak in flavour for me.
