QcBeer (113) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
De couleur jaune très pale et transparente. Une belle mousse parfumé qui reste bien vivante avec une belle effervescence. On sent ici l’ananas, les épices et légèrement herbacé. En bouche, ça goûte l’ananas, la pomme verte un peu surette avec une petite finale un peu acide et pétillant!

Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2016
Can: Poured a super light yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh juicy hops with grassy notes and some tropical fruit notes is quite interesting. Taste is also dominated by some juicy green hops notes with light tropical fruit notes and some light residuals sugar notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Solid offering and nice take on the NZ hops.

codfishh (195) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
Pours a light hazy yellow fluffy white head that laces the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Flavor light grainy wheat malt, big grapefruit and piny hops, a little sufur (oniony, garlicy) note on the finish. Very dry, prickly carbonation, light body medium to high carbonation. Delicious sessionable hoppy beer.

deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2015
1 month old 473 ml can from LCBO. Label says "Golden Beach Pale Ale" and mentions no wheat on the ingredients list. Pours a pale white yellow with soft white head. Nose is fresh hops, citrus, pine some dankness. Very nice. Body is a little thin as intended, crisp. Hops dominate, pine, citrus, moderate bitterness, very nice. More satisfying than some session IPAs I’ve had.
