shaynsawchuk (558) - 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 (644) - 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.

Spab (2577) - 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.

pushkinwow (2101) - 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.

Metalchopz (2407) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Single bottle at the LCBO and did not recognize that this was a beer from this brewery, as it is quite different from their others. Pours a slight hazed, golden colour with a small frothy head that leaves a creamy slim top and lacing all-around. The mouthfeel is wet (like the title implies) with the hop in the background, and the grain that lingers a bit with the light grass. Quite a nice, grainy and mildly hoppy Pale Ale that is easy to drink. Having this one before my Christmas eve dinner.

DuffMan (7037) - 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.
