look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Purchased as a single at the LCBO. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a hard head

S- TONS of hops. Nice little IPA bitterness to it

T- See above plus this is a wonderful APA. Alcohol is low for the amount of hops present. Very nice rendition.

M- A bit too dry but that is the excessive dry hop technique

O- Excellent beer. Wish we can have discounted brand APA's at the beer store! This one is wonderful

Food Pairing

This wonderful APA goes well with... Sushi.... as usual sushi and a hard APA goes well together

Enjoy

16oz glass at Beer Revolution YEGDT, and 5.0% ABV according to them.

This beer appears a glassy medium tarnished golden amber hue, with one finger of weakly puffy, and mostly just tightly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some random coral reef lace around the glass as it lazily and evenly subsides.

It smells of orange, grapefruit, and lime citrus pith, grainy, gritty pale malt, a hint of dry caramel, a flinty stoniness, and further soft weedy, floral hops. The taste is more somewhat clammy and muddled, yet still zesty grocery store citrus rind, crackery pale malt, a restrained caramel/toffee sweetness, a hint of lemon floor polish, and meek earthy hops.

The bubbles are nice and loose and playful, the body medium-light in weight, and smooth enough, the fragrant hops not really into messing about here. It finishes off-dry, just, as the malt peters out fully, and the fruitiness of the hops steps in to pick up the slack.

A decently hoppy APA, though at the apparent expense of any prominent malt backbone, unfortunately. Very evocative of the assumed titular neighbour's better bitter (hah!) wares, and worthy of a few rounds, at least, just not at these dear, er, 'import' prices. Nor if I have to watch the fat guy at the end of the bar rant about being accused of swiping someone's phone, by threatening, and then duly carrying through on removing his skivvies. That's a new one at this joint, fo sho!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Bottle: Poured clear amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma consists of light bitter and citrus hops with light dry caramel malt presence. Taste is mostly dominated by light dry and citrus hops notes with light dry caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad overall but lacking a bit of a hops punch.
