MartinT's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
MartinT (10037) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAY 19, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2017 My Bottom Line:
Cushy cereals and spicy hop fruitiness gel from aroma to finish in this charming quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam sits atop the cloudy pale amber.
-For a moment there, I got the impression I was drinking a brew from a Franconian countryside brewery that had discovered the potential beauty of US hop varieties. The hop dosage, high drinkability, and fluffy, natural smoothness were all reminiscent.
-The flavor profile is balanced throughout.
-These flavors are all bright enough to be engaging from the first sip to the last.
-The frothy, soft carbonation and slender sugars make for a friendly mouthfeel.
-The fruit character in this one is a bit more difficult to analyse than Jutsu’s (which I love as well). Funky pineapple (overripe), lemongrass, etc.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2017 tried on tap at the woolly in guelph, ontario. minimal head; light and cloudy with delicate pink sunset colouring. light, citrusy aromas with notes of grapefruit. the flavour is equally citrusy, with strong hints of grapefruit. the beer has the floral notes of hops without the bitterness. overall, a delicious and enticing APA!

On tap at the brewery. Lots of citrusy aromas. Quite a bit of flavour for a low abv pale ale. Nice session ale

rayaron (1951) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JUL 4, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dror’s place. Thanks DSG. Murky yellow with white head. The aroma has lots of citrus (clementine, grapefruit), grassy and soapy with some tropical fruits (mango). Bitter flavor with notes of tropical fruits (mango), citrus (grapefruit), juicy and grassy. Medium-bodied. Very refreshing.

zvsn (2247) - ISRAEL - JUN 25, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks DSG. Cloudy pale yellow. Aroma of fruity hops with tropical fruits notes of mango, papaya and grapefruit. Sweetish, juicy, fruity, flavors of fresh hops with tropical fruits, a bit green and citric, finish is bitter but not too dry. Light-bodied, smooth and easy drinking. Very good.

DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 21, 2017
Bottle shared at a tasting at troubles’ place. Thanks Dean K. for this bottle! Murky yellow. Great fruity hops aroma, juicy, tropical, citric, green, slightly oniony. Dry bitterish flavor. Very nice and refreshing.

MatChar (92) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle (ND). Appearance: very nice, hazy, light yellow. Low carbonation, thick brew at pouring quickly fades into thin laces. Smell: orange, pineapple, almost banana/orange juice. Taste: perhaps a bit too thin even if at 4.8 ABV, nice juiciness, resinous, perhaps slight spiciness from hops, notes of pineapple, very subtle vanilla aroma. Overall: high quality, North East PA, also perhaps even more enjoyable on tap on Ossington.

LouisP (574) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2017
Ce que l’on remarque de cette session, c’est les effluves et le goût de citron et d’agrumes qui restera bien présent tout au cours de la dégustation. Une amertume plutôt perçante reste tout au fil des gorgées, et aurait avantage à être réduite, pour laisser peut-être parler un peu plus le houblon.

TaktikMTL (7921) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2017
Bouteille de 500 ml partagée lors d’une dégustation entre amis. Arôme: Odeur de pêches avec une pointe d’ananas. Apparence: La couleur est orangée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de fruits tropicaux avec une pointe de pin. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de fruit tropicaux en arrière goût. (Rating #7418)

Itzjerm (3076) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2017
A very nice low gravity pale ale. Nice mouth feel. Perfect session qualities. IPA with fading head. Citrus and tangerine notes.

arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of melon, orange peel, nice pineapple notes into a bit of earth, spice, slight grass. Taste was a mix of stone fruit, orange, bread, hints of pineapple, slight earth, finishing slightly bitter.
