Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouvermcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
Muddy orange-blond color with persistent creamy head. The aroma is powerful, fruity; tropical fruits, litchi, papaya. Smooth mouthfeel, round; a bit too sweet, the rice probably contributes to the lack of character; but the hopping seems well done, with the correct bitterness and a very strong fruit component.
Some elements are good, but altogether they don’t blend well. Cloying.
650mL bottle, pours an opaque cloudy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is super dank, with loads of pot, earthy hops, and biscuity malt. Flavour is quite odd, with loads of super dank, earthy hops, pot, and herbal notes. The rice probably contributes to some of the weirdness. It’s the dank, herbally, almost skunky notes of the hops that shine here. Very enjoyable stuff - too bad it’s a one-off. Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Cloudy tan, bubbly head, aroma is orangey, tangerine with subtle malts and yeast in the background. Earthy and somewhat dull citrus - muted by the large amount of yeast in the glass I suspect. Unsurprisingly, I don’t get much rice. jtclockwork (17070) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours orange gold white head. Nose/taste of white sugar cone, sugared rice, orange peel, baked bread and tropical fruit - Medium body. Ferris (16268) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle - Skunky hops with a bit of grapefruit. Hazy gold with a nice head. Tastes exactly as it smells with the spicy, earthy hop notes. Unfortunately that is it, a one trick pony with very little body as well. A decent drink but nothing to write home about.

650ml bottle. Might be slightly old in the tooth but not more than a month or 2. Hazed golden pour into my ipa buttplug glass, large foamy white head that sticks for awhile leaving nice lacing. Sadly the aroma is quite malty, almost barleywine territory, like caramel rice cereal. If it is all mouteka that is quite a fragile hop variety imo. Flavor is again malty, there is a decent lemon limey hop characteristic and a bit of finishing bitterness but the caramel note dominates. I also have a lugged nose so everything is against this beer on this one. Sammy (12596) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2013
Enjoyed on tap at Bar Volo.Very smooth, tasty and interesting balanced hoppy ale. Rice sugars make it a little saki-like. One of the brewery’s better creations. jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
2013-10-23. Hazy dark orange amber small off white head. 3+ Flavour has tons of lovely orange citrus character, light alcohol in the finish. Aroma is interesting with sort of lightly grainy character, fairly alcoholic overtones, mild hops. Smooth average plus palate. 3+ Pretty nice!

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Pale lemony yellow, very hazy, pillowy white head that retains beautifully. Aroma is pungent green hops, slightly earthy, a little cat-pissy. Light crackery malts showcase the lovely hop bouquet, a mixture of grassy green and ripe gooseberry, some starfruit, a little dank pot. Very drinkable, aromatic hop showcase here! So much better than I expected-- seriously, who’d of thought a "rice IPA" with a cartoony label could possibly be so good! Wow, nice one P-49! olio (10463) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
65 cl bottle.
Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Piney, resinous hoppy aroma, some caramel there too, sweet orange also. Orange, pine, some resinous hops on the flavor, caramel-y malty hints. Feels a bit old. Meh.
