Draft - Sweet lime and floral grass. Clearish gold with a decent white head. Wet grass, light herbal notes and a light finish. Refreshing but no a lot of flavour.

Sammy (11219) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
Wet hop series, enjoyed on Tap at WVRST. Cloudy light orange colour. Very fresh tasting, with clear orange flavour. Carbonation right there. Tasty and good drinkability. One of their best. Faint hop aroma.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2012
2012-11-20. Hazy golden orange body with a small white head. 3+ Flavour is interesting, almost a lightly funky orange peel character up front, modest bitterness throughout, sweetish mild malt in the middle, dry bitter finish, sort of spicy in the background. 7++ Aroma is similar, lightly funky orange, something I want to call cat food but isn’t (Is that from the beer or a food smell from somewhere else?) 7+ Average plus bodied palate. 3+ Super interesting, I like it but it is kind of odd. On tap at Rhino, Toronto

[4966-20121120] Tap. Light grainy fruit aroma. Hazy, orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Citrus lemon orange juice flavour has a bitter bite initially that quickly fades to fruit. Medium body. Quite delicious, there’s a funny sour-like tang somewhere. (7/3/7+/3/16) 3.6

Has a fruity taste in the beginning. Very fruity aroma with citrus and rich orange, tangerine - good hops. Decent lacing with a reddish amber pour. Isnt super bitter at the end, but has a very full taste. Nice smooth ending with a little bitterness. Very full tasting beer. Tap at Only Cafe.

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
Draught at Rhino. Nov. 20. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a small diminishing white head. Aroma is lovely, lots of fruit and spice, lime and pumpkin, a good amount of hops and finally, yeast. Flavour of yeast, fruit, light spice, very light hops and a good amount of herbs. Average to medium bodied. Very good.
