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.

tompete (320) - 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 (1142) - 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 (864) - 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.

ark golden hazy with an off-white head. Aroma of Cascade and Amarillo hops with floral, fruit, caramel and grapefruit hints. quite bitter in flavor with a long finish. Carbonation low. A nice Ale

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Orange, un peu voile, elle garde un certain montant de mousse blanche pendant plusieurs minutes. lodeur, ce sont les fruits tropicaux (ananas, mangues) qui prennent toute la place. Plutt douce en bouche jusqu atteindre la finale, plus muscle et plus amre. Pourtant, malgr ces caractristiques et une prsence de sucres qui larrondit, elle manque un petit peu de puissance. Elle reste cependant trs agrable, et bien fidle un style qui na plus rien cacher.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 At my Uncles place during my trip to Canada last summer. It poured an orange-gold with a nice floral hop aroma. The taste was a classic easy drinking APA, light, refreshing & with a clean dry bitter finish. It didnt blow me away but didnt disappoint. Solid. Rated from memory. 3.3

Well this is lame to see Canucklehead aliased to this average brew...
Great Lakes canucklehead on cask at Volo. Cloudy orange gold color. Sharp apricot and sweet stone fruit aroma. Soft silky mouthfeel on a medium body. The taste is crisp bitter orange and peaches. On cask and with the citra it shot up to a 3.8

pushkinwow (2755) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
500ml can from the beer store, but randomly but pretty happy I did. Somewhat hazy pale yellow with a nice white head, some fresh citrus and floral hops, bittersweet with a decent maltiness, balanced, moderate carbonation and body, smooth. May have to pick up a few of these for the summer.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014 Cant believe this is my first time trying this. Pours honey brown with a soft cap that gives up its ghost quickly but offers serious lacing as the beer makes its way down the glass. Aroma promises hops & while they dont pop as much as Id want they balance well with the bitterness. I prefer their more creative offerings but this is a solid pale ale that delivers what youd want.
