Lubiere (13193) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2010
A hazed golden ale with a thin creamy off white head. Nice pungeant floral hops in aroma ove rlight caramel malt. In mouth, a classy hoppy APA with floral hops, white grapefruits, a bit lighter than expected but very good. On tap at V&V, August 15 2010.

Sammy (11516) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
Superior pale, creamy orange flavour, very drinkable appetite creator. Lots of foam head on light orange. Hop aroma. Nice bitterness. A six-pack please.

jercraigs (10093) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
2013-10-05. Lightly hazy dark yellow body with a small frothy white head. Aroma is moderate with a bit of grassy green hops. Flavour is fairly bitter, pithy lemon and grapefruit hop character. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Enjoyable. On cask at Beaus Oktoberfest, Vankleek Hill

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 23, 2012
341mL thanks to JulienHuxley. Pours clear golden with a bunch of yeast chunkies after sediment is accidently dumped in. Probably should force carbonate these hoppy styles. Large, rockier, off-white head. Impressive retention. Soapy, webby lace. Nose is sugary kumquat, sharp walnuts, cinnamon, sharp apple pie. Taste is very nutty, dry, Brasil nut skins. Too bad.

j12601 (9798) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2011
On tap at Vice et Versa. Pours a very hazy gold with a medium sized white head. Looks like a hefe. Citrus and ginger on the nose, light pine. Earthy with citrus and a little ginger. Turns into a slightly grainy finish where the grain note grows bigger as it lingers.

olio (9672) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2015
341 ml bottle.
Pours golden color with a large white head. Malty aroma with caramel and some orange, resinous hop notes as well as some pine needles. Flavor is on the malty side too, some mild fruity notes, moderate hops and slightly biscuity finish. A bit thin but decent malty APA.

MartinT (9592) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2011 My Bottom Line:
Snappy citrusy hops develop plenty of resinous bitterness, as pale cereals are cushiony enough to support the alpha explosion until the very end. Intense for an American Pale Ale, but I cant complain when such beautiful flavors are put together. Whats in a name?

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy yellow gold.
-The body is crisp enough to make this an easy drinker and the sustained hop bitterness enhances the refreshment factor.
-The nose is very citrusy, and perhaps a tad milky. Couldnt quite get my nose around that part of the beer too well...
-There are so few hop bombs in the province of Quebec; and this one is quenching too! APA or IPA? I dont care. I want another pint.

Bottles, and on tap at V&V.

Tap at Toronto Fest of Beer. Pale golden orange pour. The nose is a little bit hoppy with a nice fresh orange peel aroma. A little bit fruity. Decent pale ale

[5896-20131005] Cask. Fragrant orange and tangerine hops aroma. Clear, orange brown body with a quick bubbly white head. Bitter orange peel and tangerine toast flavour. Medium body is fairly bitter. Very nice. (8/3/8/4/15) 3.8
(@ Beaus Oktoberfest 2013, Vankleek Hill, ON)
