COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full bodied golden Pale Ale which pours with a linen white medium density head leaving spider web lace on the glass. On the palate the flavour is sweet fruity malts up front (apricot, mango) with a bit of candy, and slight grassy notes which fall away to reveal a hint of biscuit with rather pleasant grapefruit and perfume undertones. This is a hop bomb, there is no doubt. To the nose there is a mild malt aroma which accentuates the robust floral bouquet which is derived from the hops.

Medium full bodied ale with pleasant lingering hop finish.

6.8 % alcohol by volume, IBU’s 46.6

Food Pairings: Burgers, Chilli, Chorizo, Crispy/Spicy Duck, Spicy Indian dishes

Strangebrewer (902) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 tap/can. I first tasted this beer at The Chatham Ribfest on tap which, as all good things do it ran out first. Poured hazy orange-amber with a creamy off-white head. Floral hop aroma. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Malty, flavours of rye bread, tart grapefruit. Finish is a bit sticky with pine and more hops. Lingering aftertaste.

probstblueribbon (3072) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
500 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy deep golden with a nice off-white foam. Aroma: Quite a number of hop aromas – floral, somewhat woodsy, a touch soapy and resinous, hints of citrus, some caramel and medium-roasted malts come in after, biscuit malts too. Palate: Medium body and carbonation. Flav.: More malt notes off the start, dark bread crust, biscuit, British-style malts, the hops are more pine/resin with some grapefruit/citrus, and the floral/woodsy/soapy notes take a backseat; dry with fair bitterness (not a hop bomb) and a fairly stark malt finish with some pine notes.

Interesting name and label. The beer is decent.

markas101 (1905) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2010
50 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON, Canada. Hazy light gold colour, spicy honeyed aroma. Syrupy, with sweet and bitter fighting it out for position. A slight celery hit at the end.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JUN 27, 2010
500 ml bottle pours a hazy amber body with a medium ivory head that leaves scattered lacing on the glass. Aroma is earthy and citrusy hops with an undertone of caramel. Taste is earthy hops with hints of pears and apricots. Toasty caramel provides a solid malt backbone. Finishes with an earthy bitterness. Not bad, but a bit earthy.

I tried this beer on June 17, 2010 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent golden colour, with reddish hues, and a 1/2 inch white cap. The aroma was citrusy hops, grainy malt, and pine. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was grapefruity hops, cereal malt, citrus, and a bitter finish

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2011 Nice ale. I loved the the texture, which was thick and creamy. Hoppy with a touch of bitterness, but still very drinkable. Quite enjoyable. This has become one of my favourite beers to have at any given time.

manuchampions (1238) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2010
Pours a slightly hazy amber honey gold with little head. Aroma is slightly sweet malts backed by subtle hops. Taste is a intrugingly floral, almost jasmine, note followed by caramel malts. Hops ride in near the end but are subtle and quickly gone. The lingering note is the malts. So overall this is a very decent beer...but an IPA? Even and English IPA? Not in my book. So it rates well but not within the style.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2010
Bottle. Attractive auburn appearance. Heavy malt nose, very full and rich. Same with the flavour: big malt all the way, plus a slight ting of raspberry and a reasonably good bitter finish. A very good premium ale, though a little one-dimensional. Quite evident this is brewed with high-quality ingredients.
