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.

bunget (929) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2015
473ml can. A hazy golden body, medium white head with poor retention but plenty of lacing. Aroma of stone fruits and honey, orange peel and hay. Taste of grapefruit, mango and a touch of pine. Light!

yourilevesque (1761) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
Armes de fruits tropicaux, de pain frais et dun houblon printanier rappelant lherbe coupe. Le liquide est trouble, effervescent et dune douce lgret. Je suis dsaltr avant mme dy goter! Mes attentes sont combles ds la premire gorge: celle-ci coule et rafrachit tout sur son passage tel une brise maritime. Belle, dlicate et un prix fort attractif, cette bire a dcidment tout pour elle!

One of the best beers around and for a most reasonable price ($2.50 for a tall can). This has become my go-to beer of choice and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

redpooba (406) - Texas, USA - APR 2, 2015
Very slightly hazy yellow ale with a dissipating white poppy head. The aroma is what really jumps out with a boutique of hops. The body is light and there is a bit of lingering bitterness, but the IBUs are low and friendly. It is a wonderfully refreshing beer.

flip_soeperman (880) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2015
Although the aroma dissapetes quickly, a nice boost of resin. Not too bitter, but ok. Medium bodied. I would have liked it to be more aggressive.

pictoman (1056) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
Poured from 473mL can. Slightly hazy golden yellow with white head. Citrusy grapefruit hops, mild resin, with a bit of skunk and malt.

Motobashi (107) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
A hazy pour, the colour of straw with a half finger white head. Fair active carbonation. Strong grapefruit hop aroma. Heavy hop flavour. Lightly bitter, moderate length. Surprisingly good. Refreshing. Not a hops fan, but I would get this again.

Nice to see a rock-solid APA coming from my homeland.....I think? Sweet light golden elixir with a large and frothy white beard (the lacing....eek!), this has scents of biscuity malts, citrus, lemon, light pine and honey. The texture is nice and full feeling, some nice chewy with a medium carbonated body. Nice bittsweetness, mostly bitter, finishes a taste that matches the nose well. A soft lemon and pine flavour lingers and invites you to more. Extremely solid!
