COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its been said that Canada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an identity. This beer doesnt 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 weve really made a mess of things. What have we done? Sorry.

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.

Can shared by Tom10101, thanks! A text book American Pale Ale, with good floral hops, citrus and some malt. Refreshing and well balanced.

Can (473 ml). Extra from TheJester, thanks Andy! Slightly hazy golden/amber with a medium off-white head, good retention and good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, malt and floral hops... simple yet effective. Taste is slightly sweet with citrus, floral notes, malt and a light bitter finish. Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Dry finish. Very good American Pale Ale. Drinkable and well balanced. A tad too malty, but still really enjoyable.

This has been one of my favorite beers since the very first time I tried it. Opened my eyes to a lot of other great Canadian pale ales. Great brew!

tompete (317) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2013
Pours an orange colour with an off white lacy head. Aroma of light citrus hops, nice arrangement. Flavour is a bit spicy, malty and citrus hop bitter. Finish is easy going and slightly metallic hopish. My favourite Canadian IPA Ive found so far.

sudomorph (1118) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2013
500ml can. Pours a clouded, slightly muddy, copper with a one finger, off-white head that thins but leaves great lacing. Carbonation can be seen rising to the top. Looks great. Aroma is slightly faint but still very nice. Notes of citrus, pine, flowers, fruit, especially grapefruit, and a hint of bread. Taste is a balanced bitter with a short, slightly dry, aftertaste. Medium body with a medium carbonation. Clean, crisp feel Im the mouth. Very nice and well worth a try. Would but again. Bitter but not overdone.

jksipa (838) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
Can from the LCBO. Pours a hazy light amber with a generous off white head that hangs around. Aroma is piney hops and pineapple. Nice level of bitterness but not spectacular. Medium slick mouth-feel with average carbonation and a long finish. Quite drinkable.

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2013
473 mL can. Pours straw with a nice white head, leaves no lacing. Pungent fresh hop aroma, lemon, orange, pine and a touch of biscuit flavored malts. Light to medium bodied with full carbonation. Dry with a the pleasant lingering mouth feel of hop bitterness balanced with crisp malt. A tasty session beer: crush a few of these on a hot day.
