Lubiere (13701) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2009
A golden ale with a thin white head. A pleasant hoppy aroma, caramel malt, with light funky notes. In mouth, a good hoppy pale ale with restrained c-hops, melding nicely with the malts. Well balanced. On tap at Brouhaha, March 28 2009.

Bov (12637) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2012
from Mondial de la Bire 2011, Strasbourg - hazy dark amber-blond under a persistent beige foam; nice lace; a robust hoppy aroma with notes of flowers and honey; quite full-bodied and rounded palate; moderate carbonation; very tasty and fairly bitter; long flowery and dry almondy finish

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2010
2010-08-13. Crisp dark amber body, good sized creamy beige head. 4+ Modest aroma, weedy tea like character, modest resin, mild malt. 6+ Flavour is similar, modest resin and tea like character, light bitterness throughout, light fruity accents. Smooth average palate. Okay, bit different. Resiny character builds in the aftertaste. Growler shared by Blankboy

DuffMan (10148) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2011
On tap @ the brewpub, enjoyed as part of their "compass style" degustation tasting tray. Clear medium gold, ropy lacy white crown. Intense tropical fruit, especially ripe papaya. Lively fruity palate, some floral perfume, moderately bitter finish.

sebletitje (9955) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2013
Bouteille 50cl, bottled on 08 avril 2013, lot# 418. Orange, col pais crmeux blanc cass. Arme est fleuri et houblonn dans une approche assez neutre - Centennial. Note subtile de levure avec un bouquet ardant une approche rappelant la drche qui en se rchauffant clipse les qcq notes de houblons. Palais est houblonn frais, note de grains. Lamertume est prsente sans dominer mais laissant place un profil agrumes modr. Les malts restant quant eux sous entre carapils-ple, crystal sur une fine pointe de caramel - bready. Le tout est assez sec. Le houblonnage laisse petit petit place un fruit agrumes rappelant le pamplemousse et un herbac lger qui viennent ajouter une certaine rondeur houblonne cette bire.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Spicy, grassy hop leaves thrive throughout honeyed caramel maltiness, as tropical fruit decide to accompany a resinous hop bitterness till the very end. This is a beautifully balanced hybrid of a Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam dissipates into the clear light amber, drawing quite a bit of lacing.
-I was told this was hopped entirely with Centennial, but I admit the leafy character threw me off completely. It did not feel as bright and resinous as the usual Centennial bombs Ive tasted.
-I admit the fruitiness is orange-like at times.
-The nose could be more aromatic.
-The body is chewy and possesses a slightly higher level of residual sugars than the usual Pale Ale. With the pillowy effervescence, this almost becomes a hopped-up Cream Ale.
-The polite caramel presence has a few toffee angles.
-How great it is to have a new rural brewpub which isnt shy about using a few hops in their beer!

On tap a couple of times at Brouhaha.
