jksipa (287) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
750ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy very pale orange with a generous white head and lots of lacing. Nose is fresh cut grass, hay and citrus with a layer of honey in the background. Lots of hops bitterness through the front and middle but smoothed out by a peaches and honey sweetness. The finish could use some more punch. The body is light and slick with average carbonation. Very easy drinking.

Reimer96 (1171) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head and no lace. Aroma of citrus, steamed veggies, chlorophyll, fresh cut grass and light sweet malts. Taste is veggies, tropic fruit, fresh cut grass, caramel maltiness and a nice smooth smooth bitterness throughout. Medium carbonation gives and a medium body give this beer a very easy to drink feel.

Pours light coloured gold with average froth head that laces glass well. Aroma from bottle is outstanding floral citrus zest. Not much of any bitterness in taste though, smooth, a tiny bit of malt, or sweetness. Too drinkeable! (thats a good thing)

shaynsawchuk (434) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
750 mL bottle. Pours a pale golden with a thick foamy head of white. Nose is peach, mango, subtle pine and cedar. Crisp, with cracker like malt notes and a fruity finish. Moderate body and carbonation with a slightly bitter finish. Designed to showcase hop character. Quite enjoyed this, very sessionable.

Freaky_tiki (480) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2013 Pours misty sunburst orange with a wet kushy hop bouquet that smells so stanky that you’re not sure whether you should roll this or sip it.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2014
2013-02-08. Orangey amber body with a nice off white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy with lightly green mild fruity touches. Flavour is moderately hoppy and bitter throughout. Average bodied palate, carbonation. Enjoyable but just okay. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

pushkinwow (1966) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2013
750ml bottle from the LCBO. Pale yellow with a hint of amber and an initial generous head that fades to a thin layer that coats the beer. Muted and wet tropical hops with an overlay of caramel malts, refreshing. Moderate carbonation with a strong flavour profile yet easy to drink, little too sweet on the finish for my liking although there is an underlying bitterness throughout.
