A full bodied golden Pale Ale which pours with a linen white medium density head leaving spider web lace on the glass. On the palate the flavour is sweet fruity malts up front (apricot, mango) with a bit of candy, and slight grassy notes which fall away to reveal a hint of biscuit with rather pleasant grapefruit and perfume undertones. This is a hop bomb, there is no doubt. To the nose there is a mild malt aroma which accentuates the robust floral bouquet which is derived from the hops.

Medium full bodied ale with pleasant lingering hop finish.

6.8 % alcohol by volume, IBUs 46.6

Oakes (16090) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
Deep golden colour. Thin head. The aroma doesnt have much hop at all. Theres light pale fruits, but they are subtle and indistinct. Earthy palate. Lots of fuggles maybe, still only maybe 45 IBUs. Thats pretty light. The malts are mostly light biscuity stuff and a bit syrupy. Basically a golden ale. Needs way more hop and a much brighter character. Will disappoint anyone expecting an IPA.

Boutip (6084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2012
Can: Poured a golden color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light bitter hops with dry malt notes. Taste is a light mix of subtle bitter hops with a medium-sweet malt backbone. Body is about average with good carbonation. This one is seriously lacking a hop punch.

DeanF (2404) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Gold-copper body with okay head thats gone just too fast. Sampled at 13.4 celcius. Soft aroma of malts with some hoppy finishes on the back end. Flavour is a lot of maltiness with a dry hoppy finish. Okay mouthfeel, a little fake lager-ish though. Nice and well balanced.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Draft at kingston brewing. Warm gold. Aroma is sloppy. Fruit salad, muddled. Skanky. Thin. Toasty finish. But highly disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
From can, opaque amber with an orange hue. Floral aroma, fresh duey grass. Predominant hop flavor, chewy bitterness, maybe some light nuttiness.not excessively carbonated was appreciated. Went down well.

Quevillon (2966) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2012
473 ml can purchased at the LCBO in Rideau and King Edward (Ottawa) on May 13, 2012. Golden blonde little head. Hoppy aroma of peaches, hints of black tea. Taste of hopped peaches, grapefruit and herbs, bitter herbs. Not exceptional, but its a good tribute to Jumbo!

Hazy orange with a foamy finger of head. Smells of candi sugar, pine and resin. Bitter and pine on the palate. A little drying on the finish.
