bottle from the brewery store: another wet hop ale from this brewer. This time with a PacNW APA as a base. Freshly harvested green hop cones were sourced locally. Pours a hazy deep gold with a sticky 2 finger white cap. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is very nice, signature Pac NW citus/floral notes but brighter/fresher over a sturdy cereal tone. Flavor follows aroma with the bright citrus-piney hops slightly fronting the bready malting - finish is clean and increasingly bitter-dry with a nice juicy hop bite at the end. A very decent sipping pale for pasta dishes and as a stand alone sessioner. Kudos to the brewer on making a very tasty approachable wet hop ale.

Draught at Bar Hop. Cloudy orange, average tight long-lasting beige foamy head. Aroma is bait sweet, fruity (apricot) with quite a floral slightly acidic character. Taste - not much alcohol, very dry and not very sweet - goldings? Chewy, decent carbonation, a bit acidic - Solid brew, different.

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.

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.

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
