Crockett (1081) - Southampton, 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)

Scent of tropical fruit. Clear gold colour. Sweet apple front with light bitter finish. Light body and medium carbonation. Really nice.

lesifflebiere (1645) - 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.

bunget (816) - 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.

shaynsawchuk (681) - 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 (1031) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2015 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. Flavour is bursting wet hop: kiwi dominates, with notes of lime & a slight misting of cat pee. A ginger ale tingle on the tongue. A bit watery, would love to try a more ramped hop bomb version of this. Love fresh new hop beers as the summer crashes into the fall.

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

Spab (3334) - 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.
