DuffMan (10058) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle, sampled at Medicine Hat Beerfest 2016, and again at game night. Clear copper body, average off white head. Light caramel with tannic tea-like hop character. I reserved judgement after initially trying this at the fest, but twice in a row I am unimpressed. Perhaps the initial ratings for the dry hopped version are skewing the average, as it had to have been better than this. Thin and average at best.

Thanks to Matt for this one! Liquide orang qui flirt avec lambr. Moyennement translucide, une voile dlicat mempche de clairement distinguer ce qui se cache de lautre ct du verre. Mousse blanche trs irrgulire qui colle plutt bien mon verre. Armes terreux plutt fades de conifres, de malts caramels, de miel, de rose et daiguilles de pin. Je mattendais certainement des armes plus affirms et srs deux-mme. En bouche le liquide offre un corps acceptable, plutt mielleux et pas assez ptillant pour quon dise de lui quil est lger et suffisamment frais pour une bonne pale ale. Le liquide est bien dense, et me propose un ventail plutt troit de saveurs. Encore une fois, des notes terreuses qui sacoquinent un houblon en feuilles et du miel. Cest pas mal, mais pour crire des lettres sa famille. Amertume toute limage du reste: plutt fade et sans intrt vritable.

Clear amber pour, medium beige head. Aroma is peach, apricot, citrus zest and some nice cereals.. Good carb and mouth feel. Finish is fruity, and zesty, nice drinking, hoppy finish. A nice over all pale ale.

Aroma is citrus, clove, honey and sweet malts. Taste is light sweet malts,honey and tart. Some citrus, earthiness,grapefruit and slight sour notes. Appearance is a slightly hazy gold with a thin pearl head that retains quite well.

SlovakSniper (5467) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2016
Un corps qui scintille, dor et mousseux. Un nez de conifres et de feuilles, bord par des malts qui offrent quelque chose entre le caramel et le miel. Un got de pin avec sa sve sur un lit de crales toasts et limits en sucre. Une bouche normalement constitue: le corps, les bulles et la texture font le style. La finale plutt terreuse est colore par une lgre rsine. Pas mal dans les standards. Une bire un peu vieille cole mais bien russie.

Gawd bless Gibsons. In fact I havent been there for some years and perhaps am surmprised that a brewery exists there but nonetheless its a prime spot long the Canadian pacific coast. Thisuns got fine antique white head and golden body, little carbonation. The aroma is all hops, not too strong, but not complex. Flavour is plenty of hops again and a dry finish. You know a friend of mine asked me why there was such this obsession with hops in the 21st century - after all, there was no real need for them, as hops helped preserve beer on long ocean voyages and we had many decades ago managed to figure out water purification; nonetheless its become more of a taste thang, these excessive hops, tho this isnt too excessive as it seems. Nonetheless its fascinating that what we once drank out of necessity, we now drink out of luxury. Excuse me while I finish this and pour a Gin & Tonic....

Boutip (6208) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops with light piney notes is quite nice. Taste is a mix of citrusy hops with some piney notes floral undertones and subtle light caramel notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Solid interpretation of the style.

Stoned99 (1469) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
650 ml bottle from Canada Craft club. Aroma: grapefruits, strong caramel from the malt. App: hazy orange, brownish, medium off white frothy head almost beige, thick bog lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, creamy, really subtle fruits, subtle bitter finish. Overall: American Pale Ale? Ah! Way too malted for an apa if you ask me. Not enough fruity. No dates on the bottle so could be old. Weird appearance for an apa On the other hand, good texture.

electrotype (655) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Je mattendais quelque chose de trs fruit, mais cest en fait trs ax sur le sapin et les conifres. Lquilibre de ces notes avec celui du malt est franchement intressant! Ce genre de bire assez malte nest pas dans mes prfres en gnral, mais les notes apportes par les houblons viennent ici changer la donne. Une bire qui, sans tre dun style mga original, est trs russie.

XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle of "Persephone Pale Ale". Hazy copper. Airy cap that vanishes quick, leaving a skiff and spotty lacing. Aroma of juicy citrus, orange, grapefruit, melon, spruce. Taste is solid balance of citrus bittersweetness. Palate is quite clean, gently sticky, and a very long lasting "juicy" dry finish all from a medium carbonation. Solid.
