This is a beautiful beer. Ive been looking for a hoppy, sessionable APA in Ontario - really glad to have found this one. Very similar (with less malt backbone) to a 3 Floyds Alpha King. Lovely hop character that balances with the alcohol level perfectly. A great competitor to Crazy Canuck and Naughty Neighbour - and superior to both of them. I really hope Collective Arts brews this regularly and keeps the LCBO stocked as this is my new "table beer" - the one you keep in the fridge year round.

sebletitje (9706) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2017
473ml can, canned 15/06/2016. Dore sur un lger voile, col pais crmeux quasi jauntre tenace. Arme au nez bien houblonn, agrumes, pin et pas mal de rsineux. Malt avec une petite rsonance de chocolat ainsi que qcq effluves de pamplemousse. Palais est bien houblonn, agrumes avec un lger caractre assurant une base malt en lige avec le profil de cet APA. Cela indique un petit aspect biscuit voire malt crystal. Retrouve un fini presque de chocolat blanc, lger rsineux. Je note encore une touche de pin, houblonn rappelant les houblons C, citronn presque menthol. Balance des grains et houblons est convaincante laissant tout de mme une part belle aux houblons.

cmacklin (1037) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 18, 2017
473ml can. Pours a hazy orange with a large, fluffy, long lasting, white head that laces nicely. Sweet fruity aroma of mango, pineapple, orange, grapefruit and caramel with a biscuit malt backbone. Sweet flavour of pale malt, grapefruit, tangerine, orange, mango and pine resin with a crisp, hoppy, bitter grass finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Delicious.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2017 This is a great beer for the style and one of my few go to beers I purchase at LCBO in Ontario (hard to have "go to beers" when so often looking to try new beers). I probably drank more of this beer from LCBO then any other in 2016. 6 pack cost around $14 these days I believe. Nothing to crazy, just a well done beer, good taste, easy to purchase on a regular basis at many LCBOs, enjoy when chilling with friends.

Werckmeister (2621) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 24, 2017
0,473l can at home bought from Beer Republic. Canned 17.10.2016 (I assume it means canned). dark yellow clear color, medium big white head. smells of exotic fruits, mango, light caramel, pines, lemon grass, bit parfumy. very nice smell. full body, soft / pearly carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of exotic fruits, grassy, lemon grass, bit citric, light caramel, some grapefruit, bit earthy. finishes lightly to medium bitter with notes of grassy, earth and lemon grass. quite nice one, held up quite good, age is only noticeable towards the finish (which looses a bit), and also its rather grassy / earthy (not so many exotic fruits left I assume). Overall still very nice.

Pours clear orange into a shaker. Bright white soapy head with medium retention receeds leaving spider lacing. Tropical fruit and resin aromas. Dry with sourdough and lemon joy upfront turning to grapefruit pith in the lasting finish.

kaserov (471) - Oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 12, 2017
Color naranja, turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retencin). Carbonatacin mnima. Cuerpo aceitoso. Aroma resinoso, maltoso, hmedo. Sabor lupulado, con presencia tambin de la malta, pero en segundo plano, muy resinoso, con buena dosis de amargor final (que tampoco se mantiene demasiado en el paladar). Gran APA teniendo en cuenta su escasa graduacin.

erickok (5750) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2017
Not pale at all, but nice looking. Fresh hops, tropical and citrus fruit, centennial maybe? Also good caramel malts to back up. Superb body, very smooth and creamy and delicious, really outstanding mouth feel. Great bitterness too, strong but not lasting. Yummy! Hugely impressive brew. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bire)
