COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s been said that “Canada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an identity.” This beer doesn’t help much with that crisis. From the fiercely irresponsible stereotypical image on the front of the can to the distinctly American style of the beer inside it – we’ve really made a mess of things. What have we done? Sorry.

lusikka (7819) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2014
473 ml can. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a beautiful lacy white head. Aroma of citrus, some harsh grainy notes and mango. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, pine, citrusy bitterness, dried fruits and grass. Medium bodied, harsh mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Not as fresh as I hoped for, but still good.

olio (10408) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2014
473 ml can.
Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity, some pine needle notes as well as some wood. Flavor is a bit harsh with bitter malts, resinous hops and grass. Doesn’t seem that fresh anymore, a bit too harsh.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes goldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, fruchtig, herb. Geschmack trocken malzig fruchtig, herb, süffig, sanfte Bitterkeit im Abgang.

Idiosynkrasie (7711) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2014
473ml can. Minimally cloudy golden to amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Caramel malty aroma, citrusy hoppy overtones, hints of grapefruit and pine. Taste is bitter hoppy, citrusy, notes of grapefruit, a touch of lemon, caramel malty background with a biscuity touch; super soft palate, fairly lasting crisp bitter hoppy finish. Clean, precise, superb soft mouth-feel.

Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
Was surprised to see I never rated this one. Has golden amber colour and shows some lacing. the aroma is only slightly malty and so those hoppy notes dominate, notes of citrus and grassy herbal. On the palate is hoppy bitter with a fast but bitter finis. Medium bodied and much tastier on cask than can, could use a bit more weight but overall not a bad brew.

dfearnley (2244) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Draft to pint glass at Grand Electric Grapefruit, pine and hops. Cloudy amber with a thin white head, long lasting head. Grapefruit and hops...well balanced malt. Interesting, but not great.

3.3
Eructoblaster (4302) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Can - 473ml. Hazy, light amber body with an average white foamy /creamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrusy, grapefruit hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries grapefruit and herbal notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Good stuff.

torontosudz (6) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013 does not count
very nice, drinkable IPA - perfect amount of bitterness and wonderful fresh aroma. slightly danky aftertaste but in a good way.

CANUCKLEHEAD! The cask, dry-hopped version of Crazy Canuck is an absolute joy. In Ontario only Great Lakes and Durham seem to consistently turn out fantastic cask versions of their hoppy ales. Incredibly sessionable with a strong hop bite that somehow still leaves your taste buds intact. I could drink this all night, and have.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 Can I got from my beloved Netty who managed it to get it from Canada. Many thanks! Mwaaah, mwaaah! This pale ale is great! it has a nice hoppy and floral aroma, a bitter hoppy and refreshing taste with a bitter hoppy long lasting finish. Overall very hoppy, drinkable. anytime again!
