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

500ml can from LCBO. Pale and mostly orange hued amber with a creamy white head. Wet grains, some dry malt, bit of citrus hops although more orange then anything else. Moderate carbonation, mild+ body, slightly bitter at first and then grows without overwhelming, feels a little grainy on the palate, bit of sweetness and skunk on the finish.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Can. Orange amber with an average white head. Aroma is light pine and sweet grains. Flavour is light caramel sweetness with a pithy, herbal dry bitterness that is almost a bit harsh, like crushed aspirin. Not sure how fresh my can is, but its lack of aromatics suggests that it is past its best days.

Flimsy. Drank this one after some tight-like that IPAs. Neither here; neither there. Not the place to be. Try again.

Clear copper with a frothy white head. Medium carbonation. Clinging lace. Very sweet fruity aroma. Malty flavour. Skunky bitter finish . Blah.

redpooba (396) - New York, USA - JAN 17, 2013
A hazy golden ale with a yellow head. Fresh hops aroma with a bit of citrus. Subtle first taste with a body of sweet bitterness. Unfortunately the aftertaste is a big bitter and dry in the wrong way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong aroma of hops. Brown golden colour. Hops are not too prominent in the taste itself. Nice smooth ipa.

Hateball16 (105) - - DEC 21, 2012
Appearance: Clear orange golden, thick frothy 2 finger head endures, good clarity. Aroma: Floral and citrus hops dominate, and some fusel alcohol notes (positive), toasted baguette in the background. Flavour: Lovely citrusy profile, with a nice bready malt flavour to balance. Mouthfeel: Nice bite from the hops, moderate carbonation that cuts the finish short but then a lovely bitter alcohol aftertaste lingers. One of the best IPAs I’ve had. Had with pizza and the pairing was magnificent. Bitterness of the beer cut the richness of the cheese, I was literally in heaven.

473ml can, amber color, with a white head, nice floral candied lemon, grapefruit peel, leafy hoppy nose, with some light piney, coniferous accents, within a faint toasted, caramel malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a nice sweet toasted, caramel malty, flowery candied lemon, grapefuit peel, leafy, minty hop character, with a piney, lemon marmalade flavour, leading towards a candyish cirtusy, leafy, grassy, piney hop bitterness finish.
