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.

2012-10-21, cask at C’est What, Toronto, as Canucklehead, 7-4-8-5-16=40
Cloudy deep blond color; small creamy head. Nice aroma of fruity hops, and light sweat. Smooth toffee flavor; very nice hopping, strong but fully aromatic, more fruity than resiny; quite long final.
Seems fresher than last night. Very good.

2012-10-20, cask at Volo, Toronto, as Canucklehead, 7-4-7-5-14=37
Cloudy amber color; medium sized creamy head. Cloudy amber color, creamy head. Nice aroma, hop-fruity; also some rubber and hop sweat. Low carbonation; good toffee flavor, with good hopping, fruity and creamy; there is a hint of grappa.
Good, but probably better on normal non-cask draught.

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.

Sample from can at icbcf
Pithy grapefruit full bodied, decent bitterness, hazy gold, this is how all APAs should be made

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.

Tries this one after baseball tonight. I was really impressed with the taste and the balance. A nice 'IPA'. Saw an article about this one on the LCBO website.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2011 [2751-20100207] Tap. Sweet sugary pancakes aroma. Clear, medium orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy white head and thick lacing. Bitter sugary hops flavour has a long bitter evergreen and grass hops finish. Medium-full body is very bitter. Wow, great body, great fresh bitter. Changes a bit as it warms: more wheatie sugars come out. Something clicked for me with this one. (7/4/9/4/15) 3.9

[3820B-20110710] Cask. Fresh orange hops aroma. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a quick bubbly off-white head. Lovely bitter hoppy orange notes in the flavour with a long aftertaste. Medium body. Drinkable, sessionable, delicious! (8/3/8/4/15) 3.8
(Called "Canucklehead PA" @ Volo, Toronto, ON)
