Pale golden straw pour with a thin white head. The aroma is great - bright lemon and orange/grapefruit citrus with s bit oflesn psle malt. Very fresh and fruity. No real problems here.It’s just a clean, fresh tasty APA.

Tap at C’est What. Hazy golden-orange pour. The aroma is odd. A bit of orange and juicy fruit/orange sherbet aroma. Light cat pee and a touch of kiwi. Interesting tropical fruit flavour. Moderate bitterness and a touch of soft lingering fruit flavour. Pretty interesting actually.

Bottle [750ml]. Pours a hazy, bubbly yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head and a good amount of lacing on the glass. Nice aroma of grain, citrus hops, fruit and herbs. Flavour of citrus hops, fruit, herbs and an average bitter finish. A touch watery but it’s quite tasty. Average bodied. Really enjoyable and easy to drink.

solidfunk (3586) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Aroma of some citrus hops with a lot of malt here. More like an English Pale Ale in flavour. Leaves with light bitterness. Pours clear orange with decent head and lacing. Bottle.

robinvboyer (2985) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
750mo bottle from the lcbo. Outstanding aroma of limes, citrus, and touches of honey. The flavor is more citrus, sweet, soft mouthfeel, light bitterness. A delicate beer, big aromas and flavors of citrus, some subtle grass, and a little pine. Quite impressive, great stuff!
