COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

pootzboy (1635) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle: poured a clouded pale straw colored ale in the glass - great puffy 2 finger white cacop lasts and laces the glass well. Modest carbonation. Aroma is demure but very pleasant - fruity, citrus, pale biscuit malts, some mustiness. Light body and palate but very citrusy and hoppy not much sweetness. Front side is mainly hop dominated with the malts in the background - citrusy - soft mouth, clean bitter and dry finish with a hint of honey as malts show through. This is a wonderful light IPA made for thirst busting.

Hoppiness leaps off this in the aroma. Pours a cloudy light golden color without much head on it. Great long-lasting bitterness to this.

PorterPounder (6197) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2012
Panama City Beach Fl - Chanís Wine World (brought back by my wife) - 500 ml bottle. Sparkling light golden pour, crisp snow white head, light lacing. Fresh hoppy aroma with some floral accents. Nice bittersweet flavor with just the right amount of tanginess Some nectarines, a hint of saffron-like spiciness, some rye-like minty notes in the back end. Spritzy mouthfeel. Rather enjoyable.

probstblueribbon (3297) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2012
500 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. 17AL12.

App.: Cloudy bright golden with a large white froth. Aroma: Rich tropical fruits, floral notes, some pine/resin, sweet honey, biscuit malt, a little grapefruit and citrus, a touch dusty/musty, nice stuff! Palate: Medium body, moderately prickly effervescence. Flav.: Pine/resin, mango, tropical fruits, floral honeyed notes, some toast, quite nice, a little citrus; dry with fairly good bitterness and a fairly persistent honeyed malt, pine/resin fruity finish.

Quite lovely.

Hazy straw colour, pillowy and fizzy white head. Quite a bit of sediment. Aroma is yeasty, orange and lemon, tropical fruit. A little leafy and spicy. Fairly light sticky body. Sweet peachy, almost wheat beer qualities, with a citrus finish. Very refreshing.

teorn88 (3599) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours a clear yellow straw color with a huge soapy white head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is hoppy with tropical fruits and some grass. Very nice. Taste is a bit disappointing though: the bitterness is very mild and not anywhere near where Iíd like it to be in an IPA. Flavours are quite balanced between malty sweetnes and hoppy bitterness. Grassy and floral. Thin in body and lively carbonation. Overall, itís a 50/50 beer to me. Everything is great except for the flavour, which really laks in hops profile, bitternees, and fruity notes.

blankboy (6572) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2012
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a cloudy yellow with an average size long-lasting fluffy white head. Good lacing on the glass. Pleasant aroma of grassy hops, lightly sweet and yeasty along with biscuity malt, herbs and lemon. Flavour of grassy hops and yeast along with some tropical fruit, biscuity malt, herbs and a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty enjoyable stuff. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.
