A hop-infused American strong pale ale that uses English malts and assorted hops from the American northwest to give it a citrusy aroma and bitter finish. It's 6.3 percent alcohol, more than a point higher than most American premium beers. Look for it on tap at your favorite establishment or in 6 packs in stores!

HogTownHarry (6322) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Poured bright slightly hazy reddish-amber with an average white creamy head. Juicy fresh hop aroma - citrus with pineapple, apricot and some evergreen, a little sweet, but pleasing. Taste has some tropical juicy-sweet malt, but mix of citrus and pine fresh hops is dominant - it finishes reasonably quickly, but tangy bitter to the end. The body is decent - I want to say a bit watery, but that’s a quibble; mouthfeel is juicy, a wee bit astringent, nicely lively - solid APA.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 25, 2006
Bottle: Golden brown with a thick white head. Typical APA citrusy aroma. Moderate levels of bitterness, some grassy and pine notes. Pretty well balanced. Finishes off dry and bitter. A decent pale ale.

A very solid English style pale ale. Big head, not a lot of carbonation. Redish/orange in color. Dry finish.

CapFlu (4864) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2006
(Draught) Sampled at the Central New York Brewfest on February 4, 2006. A big, big surprise from Sacketts Harbour - including the fact that this was the first beer I tried at the festival - and it was likely my favourite of those I reviewed. Pours a large, tan head with an orange body. Very piney and cascade nose and flavour. Thin finish.

Lubiere (11394) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2006
A golden ale with a thin off white head. Surprise from SHBC! A pleasant aroma of caramel malt over good floral c-hops and classic citrusy notes. In mouth. the same. A good malt base with well balanced hops. A bit thin but this the strongest SH offering I tasted to date. One of my coup de coeur at the CNY Brewfest 2006.
