Style | ABV
American Pale Ale (APA) |  5.70% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our ʻRhyme & Reasonʼ Extra Pale Ale showcases the very best hops have to offer, but at only 5.7% ABV. It’s far more sessionable than your typical American IPA. The flavour and aroma of Citra, Centennial, Chinook and Simcoe hops prevail without excessive bitterness for maximum drinkability. Malt sweetness in the background complements the hops for a crisp finish that will make you keep going back for more!

355ml bottle at fionn maccool's

a: a beautiful hazy golden orange with a finger of head

s: vibrant grapefruit, juicy sweet orange, lemon. pine, mango, and pineapple here and there. a very fruity and inviting aroma

t: mirrors the nose. up front is like biting into a grapefruit and then immediately biting into a super ripe orange. pine and sweet lemon mid-palate. easy malt flavours emerge towards the end, bouncing off of the mild-to-moderate grapefruit-esque bitterness. tropical fruits are less prominent than they were in the nose, which is a bit of a disappointment. a fantastic dryness rounds out the tasting

m: medium mouthfeel, light-to-medium carbonation, slightly creamy. excellent

o: wow, just wow. a ridiculously delicious fruity pale ale that seems perfect for the summer days. i will definitely seek this one out again in the future

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Golden honey with a good haze, lots of floating white particles, a little fine bubble carbonation, 2 fingers of creamy head. It leaves a solid lacing.

S: Citrus, orange candy, pine, toffee, light red pepper, caramel.

T: Citrus, pine, orange candy, caramel, a good solid bitterness on the end.

M: Medium thick bready, somewhat syrupy body, medium low carbonation, smooth finish.

O: Well rounded American IPA. Really proud of this Canadian brew. As good as any solid American version of this style I’ve had, well done and proves they know what they are doing.

355mL (yes 355 mL, this is Canada) bottle with a very cool label featuring The Zolas in what looks like a very hipster (or 80s) album cover pic. 3/series 2 ...whatever the hell that means. From the great trader Liamt07 as part of another great box! Cheers bud!

Appearance. Pours a lightly hazy gold with a little orange and a finger of almost white head.

Smell. Man, fresh ruby red grapefruits, some sweet tropical fruits, a touch of orange and cedar with just the lightest hint of pale malts and sugary candy in behind that citrusy goodness. This is the kind of hops I like in a pale ale. Winning so far with this one.

Taste. Some juicy citrus and tropical fruits and plenty of bitterness, slightly woody, light sweetness. Doesn't quite live up to the smell, but a very tasty beer.

Mouthfeel. Just below medium in body, medium carbonation.

Overall. Great pale ale though I bet a lot of people wouldn't expect that big hop bitterness when buying this one.

355ml bottle poured into tulip 2/6/14 thanks liamt07 for sending the bottle

A slight haze in a orange amber body, big stream of bubbles coming off the bottom with lots of big bubbles clinging to the side, finger of eggshell foam sits around long enough to leave a couple partial rings

S lots of citrus, orange, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, and some lychee and guava, lots of tropical hops but not a complete runaway with some caramel malt and a little pine

T slightly less tropical notes, more pine and caramel, just a little spicy, lemon rind, not exactly what I expected after the smell but the quality's still there

M lighter side of medium, enough bubbles to cream it up, bitter but nowhere near a palate wrecker, lingering spruce and rind

O lots going on in something I could drink a 6er of without falling over or getting board, I'd have this in my rotation if I cold get it locally

I'm surprised I've never heard of this one before, thanks again Liam for this little hidden gem

Bottle from the LCBO

A - Golden, hazy, slightly orange appearance

S- Citrus, Orange, a little pine at the end

T- Nice citrus up-front, then bitterness. Can taste the malt. I prefer less malt in hoppy beers. I'm not a fan of the aftertaste. Almost metallic, tin-like.

M- Nicely carbonated

O- Not bad, however, the aftertaste makes it hard for me to rate this higher. Not worth the price IMO.

Enjoyed a sample at the Real Canadian Craft Brew Show a few weeks ago and I got hooked on it.

The nose is amazing. Grapefruit and lemon, finishing with fresh pine needles.

In the glass, the head is white, thin dissipating quickly. The body is pale orange and muddled.

The taste is one of the most refreshing I've experienced. Lot's of citrus, grapefruit, lemon, mango and a slight hint of honey. The dry hops shine with great flavour and smoothness. A very good bitters finish, not heavy yet noticeable.

Mouthfeel was very good. round and pleasing.

A great quencher on a hot day.

Purchased at the LCBO $14.00 or so for a 6 pack. Served at 8deg C in a draught glass.

A- Pretty good. Opens well with nice head.

S- Excellent! Holy hops batman. Very nice dry hopping experience.

T- See above! Plus this is down right delicious. It's the hop experience I like.

M- Excellent. This bitter bite beer was fantastic. Just a sour note on the end to let you know how long this baby was boiled.

O- Excellent! Very enjoyable. Liking it a lot. It's the lower alcohol, higher hop beer I have been looking for. Problem is though it's expensive. No deals on cases hurts. Will try the brewery to see what's up

Food Pairing

This wonderful little girl went well with... Pad Thai. The spicy nature of the Pad Thai goes well with this hoppy beer.

Enjoy
