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.

Bire blonde de 5.7 % dalcool. Elle est trs opaque, trs floue et possde un beau col mousseux au versement. Elle possde un odorat typique de la IPA et un nez de fruits de la passion, de mme que floral. On sent galement de lamertume. Elle possde un got trs amer, se rapprochant grandement du pamplemousse. Lamertume reste en bouche, elle y colle vraiment, mais nest pas dsagrable. Elle est mme trs rafrachissante. Trs bonne !

Oakes (15843) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2016
Hazy, quite dull, just a thin head. Aroma lacks expressiveness. Biscuity, chewy and quite yeasty. Moderate bitterness but not much hop brightness. Starts sweetish for style but ends quite bitter. Given my connections to Hamilton I was really hoping for more.

Draught at Darbys Gastown, Vancouver
Hazy golden color, small compact head. Zesty hops provide the character for this beer, supported by delicate crackery malts; the aroma is also lightly biscuity; the mouthfeel is moderately sweet, and the body is robust. Strong bitterness, for a result and zesty final.
Excellent.

Slight fog, needed a vigorous pour to get a head, but once its there, its quality. Orange. Aroma is resin, citrus hop, with grainy backing. Taste is quite bitter, but comes off cleanly. Hop flavour is a bit muddled (bottle might be old). Pleasant, more pleasant fresh.

Bulk_Carrier (4115) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a ruddy burnt orange color with a concaving white foamy head. Just seems to spread out to the sides extremely slow in its dissipation of the head. Messy semi-thick foamy head. The aroma had some nice caramel crisp sweet malts running over some grassy to light citrus hops. The flavor leans malty sweet. Hops really dont shine in this one. Malty sweet aftertaste with the same sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Low carbonation moves nice and low. Overall, decent APA for its cleanness. Nothing over the top but gets the job done for the style.

The perfect blend of butter and citrus and at 5.7%, not too heavy on the alcohol

Gerbeer (3270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2016
On tap. Pours a thick hazy orange/amber with moderate head. Aromas of toffee, mashed fruit, light pine and sweet malts. Flavors of toffee, doughy malts, bitter lemon, dried fruit and grass. A bit soapy...

googleimage83 (83) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2016
Pours a hazy brown-orange with subtle glow; not much head, but it laces nicely. Rich toffee aroma, very malt-forward and a bit juicy. Taste matches the aroma in flavors but not in balance - toffee, bread, citrus, punchy hops provide a moderate piney bitterness and hold the beer back from being too caramelly. Super-tasty and easy to drink.
