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

A decent hop smell, however this beer tastes like a dead elephant. It has an initial hops taste that may seem good and then it becomes bland and unsatisfying.

Ontbeertaster (2348) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2011 Bottle, really wasnt my favorite offering the hops were harsh and the blend of malts was not well balanced for me.

JoeMcPhee (8837) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2010
Pale golden pour. Creamy white head. The nose is a little bit sweet with a touch of light orange peel and some orange blossom honey. The palate is fairly sweet with mostly pale ale malt. Sweet and a little bit doughy - especially as it starts to warm up. Dirty phenolics on the back of the palate along with a kind of indistinct orange peel hoppiness. Fusely and crappy. These guys have some serious yeast control issues.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
500ml bottle, 6.5% a/v Light copper colour with a slightly offwhite head. A pretty decent looking brewski. The aroma is faint, and consists mainly of malt and caramel notes, with a slight amount of floral hops. Wish there was a larger aroma! The taste makes up for the aroma however, lots of taste in this glass. Spicy malts, citrusy hops,and slightly earthy yeast flavours all blend very well. The palate is well coated and full of hoppy flavours (almost a licorice note as well). Good brew.

Bouteille 500ml, courtoisie de Hogtownharry. De couleur ambrée-cuivrée et voilée. Nez moyennement fruité (pommes, léger de mangue, notes de fruits tropicaux) et de houblon herbeux herbes fraîches) aux notes florales et citriques et léger de grains de malt aux notes terreuses avec des traces de noix. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux petites notes crémeuses. Léger goût fruité (léger de pommes, notes d’abricots, traces d’agrumes et de mangue) accompagné dune légère amertume de houblon floral (présent en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) et de traces d’épices lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt légèrement terreux, de biscuits, léger de pâte de pain avec des notes de céréales fraîches (faibles traces rôties) puis en finale l’on retrouve un regain d’amerttume de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées) aux faibles notes citriques avec de petites traces de noix asséchantes. Post-goût moyen et aux petites notes sèches et terreuses, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux aux notes florales avec des traces de noix et de fruits.

Strangebrewer (957) - 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 (3246) - 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.
