Bottle (355 ml). Thanks to czar! Clear amber with a small creamy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of malt and grapefruit with some earthy notes. Taste is moderately malty with grapefruit and caramel notes. Earthy and dusty too. Low but sticky bitter finish. Medium body. Decent. herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
Surprised I’ve never rated this. Was one of the first local IPAs I tried a couple of years ago. A nice gateway beer for people looking to breakaway from the norm. On tap. Dark copper with an active fizzy cream head. Creamy mouthfeel. Biscuity maltiness with a sweet floral aroma. Hint of grapefruit. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout with a medium bitter finish. It’s a sessionable hoppy amber. HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
355ml bottle. Deep red amber colour. Another in a mini series i've been on with red/amber ales hopped like an IPA. Nice balance between the aggressive hop and caramel malt. Overall, a good balance.

If you like hops, this is a great beer! Fun marketing materials, too (beer packaging, beer cap liner, etc.). dandeman (995) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
Tasted Feb 2012.
Aroma: Hoppy with lemon, green grass and flower accents. Very pleasant nose.
Appearance: Typical brown, very clear. Beautiful long lasting creamy head with good lacing.
Taste: Attack is all hop flowers with a lot of greenery accents. Malt, with it’s caramel and a bit of smoky notes, is taking over after. Finish is all bitterness. A very good ’’almost’’ pale ale? Naaa! Pale ale to me.

Om livet smakade lika bra som en Flying Monkey Hoptical hade folk inte tryfferat sina liv med den spillning som hjärntvättsinrättningar som "Let’s dance" klämmer ut i lördagsgodisskålen. Å andra sidan hade den här recensionen blivit så otroligt mycket mer svårskriven. Beskriva smakerna? Ser jag ut som en poet eller? Drick, njut och håll snattran.

Bottle from my trading partner Andrew - thanks! Don’t know if I’d call this an amber ale - plays like a nicely hopped rich pale ale. Citrus and floral, good hop bite, well balanced. Very good. AGAquino (667) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
12 oz. bottle from the LCBO. Nice clear amber colour, good head and lace. Noticeably hoppy, but quite balanced. Good carbonation. SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle Poured a hazy coppery orange with an off white frothy head. The aroma was nice citrus hops and malt. This is a very drinkable with nice fresh hops citrus grapefruit and nice blend of malts that balance it very nicely.
