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.

lesifflebiere (1874) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Orangée, un peu voilée, elle garde un certain montant de mousse blanche pendant plusieurs minutes. À l’odeur, ce sont les fruits tropicaux (ananas, mangues) qui prennent toute la place. Plutôt douce en bouche jusqu’à atteindre la finale, plus musclée et plus amère. Pourtant, malgré ces caractéristiques et une présence de sucres qui l’arrondit, elle manque un petit peu de puissance. Elle reste cependant très agréable, et bien fidèle à un style qui n’a plus rien à cacher.

Arômes de fruits tropicaux, de pain frais et d’un houblon printanier rappelant l’herbe coupée. Le liquide est trouble, effervescent et d’une douce légèreté. Je suis désaltéré avant même d’y goûter! Mes attentes sont comblées dès la première gorgée: celle-ci coule et rafraîchit tout sur son passage tel une brise maritime. Belle, délicate et à un prix fort attractif, cette bière a décidément tout pour elle!

Damn good APA... Awesome citrus Aroma with grapefruit, light pine, orange peel and sweet pale malts. Flavor is pale malts, citrus hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits and good balance of bitterness throughout... Almost perfect for an APA.

650ml Bomber fresh from Brewery. Pours a gold-amber ale in my glass. Large puffy white cap with great retention and lacing qualities. Nose: citrusy, fruity with a deep caramel malt tone ( abundant Diacetyl too which becomes more dominant as the beer warms - butterscotch overwhelms when warmer) Slick mouth feel. Nice chew of bready sweet malts in front are balanced by light hopping Diacetyl is detectable in flavor more so than aroma but it is some what subdued by the malts . Finishes nicely with an increasing bittering and a great bready-bicuity maltiness...lingering bitterness. This is not an over the top intense Pale but one that is full of flavor and very drinkable...great session ale but the price is a tad steep for that. I really wanted to rate this higher but in spite of it’s great hopping and malt profile The diacetyl really is unforgivable in a beer marketed as premium with a premium price. They did this to me with the green tea ale as well and I really wanted to like that beer as well..

Can from jerc, thanks Jeremy. Pours clear orange, thick white head, gorgeous lacing. Nose is big citrus, fresh rank hop cones, and earthy creaminess. Flavours are nettly hops, with loads of citrus and spice, nice balance, well-rounded. A quality brew from Ontario, blow me over.

DerWeg (1678) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2010
Clear goldy orange, lasting white cap & good glass lacing. Light and dry with slightly green hops but beautiful hop character with grapefruit rind and hop resin.Nice dry citrus aroma, orange flavors come forward as the glass warms.

gramity (1638) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
Crispy clean taste, pours a pale yellow, very hoppy smell and a hoppy taste, pretty citrusy, you can really taste the cascade come through and it has a good finish. Good offering

Johnsense (1631) - - MAY 21, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2016 Pours golden/copper with a puffy frothy 2 finger head. Big aroma of Pine, Grapefruit - there?s some caramel malt in there too but the Hops dominate this one. Bitter hops in the taste, pine needles, caramel malt and a bit of a woody quality to it. A bit more balanced than the aroma. Fairly lively carbonation here, though there should be some more body to it. Those minor complaints aside, this is a fairly easy drinker and a good representation of an APA.

3.6
neongolden (1611) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
(473mL can from LCBO) Poured cool, a slightly hazy medium gold with a rocky white head that faded quickly. Aroma citrus-dominated, some grapefruit in particular, faint malt. Flavour again hoppy, a little malty sweetness at first but strongly grapefruit pith, citrus, quenching and a little acidic. Moderate bitterness coming in, finishes tinny and dry. Body fairly lightweight, high soda-pop carbonation, Not too complex but a very refreshing summer pale ale.
