rejtable (2206) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
Really nice beer! Pours clear golden some initial head that sticks around as a nice top layer, tons of lacing. Nose is reasonably quiet, some pine and grapefruit. Flavours are grapefruit, some cereal, light pine. Taste light sweet light/med bitter. Lightish body with lively carbonation. Very drinkable, reasonably uncomplicated beer. Nothing wrong with that.

DuffMan (9016) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Bright hazy orange, nice creamy head. Orange citrus hop character, some grassy notes too, mildly bitter finish, not too sweet in the malt department. Quite nice, subdued.

lesifflebiere (1618) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
Bière blonde tirant sur l’orangé, avec un petit film de mousse ; le nez est très sapiné, mais fruité en même temps. La bouche est vraiment davantage du côté fruits, avec de l’abricot et des pêches, un brin d’orange venant clôturer le tout. Une fine amertume vient conclure la session. Buvabilité considérablement haute. Une excellente pale ale, simple, qui donne effectivement une impression de fraîcheur. Un peu timide, par contre.

Spab (3226) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden colour with good-sized, creamy white head. Aroma is lively floral and light citric hops with some sweet malt. Flavour has nice fresh hops, mostly floral but also a little citric, and some sweet fruity malt. Soft carbonation. Pretty nice.

cfrancis (3025) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
One of the better wet hop beers that I’ve ever had. Pours hazy gold with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is big citrus and grassy malts. Taste is a blessed blend of big citrus hop flavouring and moderate bitterness and grassy malts. Awesome.

deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Very intense juicy hop nose, dank pine resin, citrus. Taste follows the nose, but less intense. Really good. I wish it had a longer finish. Well balanced.

Crockett (1071) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2015 Pours honey gold with a decent sized white lacing head. Nose of sweet cut flowers (think florist), pizza dough, and fragrant lemony pine hops. Very clean mouthfeel. A bit sweet, but refreshing. Hops aren’t crazy strong, but are still very fresh and juicy. Certainly not overwhelming. Lightly toasted malts. Notes of peach, and cream. Very quick finish. It’s very fringe American... not as bold... Remarkably better than what I tried in ’11 (2.2... had to have been a bad batch)
