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.

Go to Pale Ale. Well balanced, hop intense ale with the right amount of carbonation.

UPDATED: SEP 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 Rerate: cask version the canculkhead or some like that was awesome, the flavour was really smooth and lots of hoppiness, really nice

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!

Hazy orange body, rhick white foamy head. The aroma is very full, with grapefruit and orange, some flowers. Excellent palate, medium heavy. The taste is fruity as well, with a slow to start but long to mature and finish aftertaste that has hops and even some nuts. Wow!

a can from the LCBO, must admit the new "art" can caught my eye. I know I have had this before but obviously forgot how good it was> pours a golden amber great head initial aroma is what beer is supposed to smell like, hoppy smokey, spicy, tasty. Overall very drinkable Pale Ale

Pours a hazy orange, with a large white head. Aroma has notes of orange peel, Malts, spice. Tasting notes include orange peel, resin, pine, and a nice bitter finish, most excellent.

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.
