How is it possible I havent rated this yet? Strong malts balance the floral and tangerine hop notes in the aroma. Clear copper coloured body is topped by a decent, fine-bubbled white head that recedes to cover with great lacing. Thick sweet caramel malts are offset by medium bitterness but this definitely a malty pale ale. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Enjoyed on tap at Alibi Room.

Rating is for the Citra hopped version, how is this aliased? This is vastly better than the original version! Pours clear honey gold, thin white head, solid lacing. Nose is spicy juicy floral hops; apricots, clean malt, ginger. Flavours of spicy stonefruit, lots of tea and white peach. Great!!

Bire orange prsentant une bonne couche de mousse ; semble mi-mince. En nez, malts sucrs, poires, et un peu dananas. Les saveurs sapparentent aussi ces descriptifs, variant des fruits tropicaux une petite amertume herbace en finale, le tout surfant sur des malts qui viennent arrondir joliment le liquide. Une APA "by the book" mais qui russit tous les points de vue, savoureuse mais totalement "sessionnable" la fois.

Clear golden pour, small white head. Dank, earthy, citrusy nose on this. Biscuity caramel sweetness on the flavor with earthy, herbal, dank hops and a little citrus. Pretty straightforward, but definitely one of the better pale ales Ive had from Canada.

piscator34 (2374) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 30, 2011
Canned sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are predominantly floral, backed by hoppy elements of mango and orange marmalade. Flavours are a mix of dry biscuity malts, sharp tropical fruits, faint caramel and a herbal/black pepper finish. Light bodied, hoppy, firm bitterness, and quite refreshing. Cleaner than the IPA, which I like.

Can sample- pours a cloudy pale straw yellow. Frothy head, minor soapy lacing. Nose- grapefruit pith, some malt sweetness. Taste- citrus (candied oranges), grapefruit, marmalade with a bready malt backbone. Crisp carbonation and nice body. Very drinkable

October 30, 2011 - Volo Cask Days 2011 - gravity cask. This is the "Citra" version of this, but I guess since this isnt England or Qubec it cant be a separate rating. Lovely hazy orange pour with a smallish but lasting bright white frothy head. Aroma is ... yummm - total pungent fresh catty citra bitterness with framing sweet pineapple malt - fantastic. Taste is a bit maltier and more restrained - good, but more APA - some alcohol, good balance. Decent body, mild carbonation, a fairly quick finish - 15- because that aroma .... damn that was fine!

Can. Pours amber. Tastes fruity malty and hoppy all rolled into an easy drinking beer.

Great topaz colour under a fizzy white cap. Hoppy aroma has tropical fruit, melon and some dankness to it. The flavour has a good blast of hops that leave a slight lingering bitterness in the finish. Smooth across the palate with a good level of carbonation. Solid pale ale.

drjoeng (1044) - SINGAPORE - JAN 9, 2017
5%ABV. Pale ale. Poured out gold. 8 SRM. Nose has a full malty aroma with toast and bread crumb aromas being most prominent. Very brief hints of pine and spruce. Some citrus aromas as well with orange peel and grapefruit peel. Mouthfeel is beery. Palate has nice toasted malt flavor with graham cracker, candied nuts, dark wheat toast, and doughnuts. Hops are bitter and noble with a hint of citrus peel and on further approach start to yield slightly spicy flavor notes as well with cilantro and light fennel seed and cloves. Finish is brief and clean. Then comes back and lingers a little on the back of the throat without being cloying. Goes on Favorites List!
