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. MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2012
Can from LCBO. Pours a hazy amber colour with thick off-white head. Some citrus in the aroma. Not bad. MXD (304) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2012
Can. Pours pale copper. Aroma is biscuits, caramel. Mainly dark malts. First touch is quite interesting (fruity -- mainly apricot) and perfectly balanced, but slides into veggies territory. Couldn’t stand it. Started well but quickly drainpoured. asheft (3062) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2012

Creamy strawberry aroma that is all from hops and quite pleasant. Dark straw appearance under a lasting, white foam. Biscuity caramel flavour in a fully attenuated beer with a faint, nutty diacetyl finish. Light body, moderate carbonation, moderately bitter finish. Excellent English Bitter.

Can from LCBO. Some grassy hops up front with some sweeter backing, maybe apricots, some grapefruit. Lighter body in the mouth with strong carbonation. Ok. Digital_Aura (228) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2012
Pint bottle from brewery. Soapy thick white head upon pouring. Aroma is slightly flowery, mostly grapefruit. Body is clear deep yellow (Lovibond 5). Relatively low carbonation. Rather playful lace develops after head diminishes. Taste is of bittersweet grapefruit with a moderate to long astringent finish. Tiger_08 (138) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2012 March 13 2012. Pint bottle. Pours clear dark yellow, thick bubbly head which reduces quickly to a ring around glass that sadly clings just enough to make some lacing. Aroma is definitely hoppy with conflicting floral and fruit. Soft dry palate, a little oily though in aftermath. You can really taste all that is going on, the apricot candy and the grassy floral with some hints of citrus and hops. Sometimes the taste seems to change which makes it complicated to drink, but definitely not strong or too much hops at all. In fact, would like to have a bit more hops or bitterness in aftertaste as there wasn’t any. A bit too confusing for my tastes left me wondering "what was that I just drank?" but not enough to not have another. rapago (7) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2012 does not count
I was intrigued by the name of the beer, and moderately satisfied with the flavour. cfrancis (3407) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
Pours clear amber with a small white ring and not bad lacing. Aroma is fruity and floral hops with some caramel. Taste is a bold fruit/floral hop bitterness, some earthy malts but slightly out of balance.
