Picked up 6 of these at the LCBO in Waterloo.
From a bottle into a snifter.
Note: Drunk all three in order.
APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking white head that crackles enough for me to notice. Decent retention on the head. Clear SAE amber orange in color with zero carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a thin wisp and a ring that remain until the end and leave a few dots of lace down the glass.
SMELL: Pale malts, sweet pineapple and citrus notes, as well as some floral hop aromas. Medium strength and plenty inviting for the style.
TASTE: Pale malts, pineapple sweetness and citrus flavors as well. Some spiciness through the middle and some floral hop bitterness towards the finish. Sweet melon and hop bitter aftertaste is medium in strength and lingers nicely on the palate. Tasty stuff for sure.
PALATE: Medium body and carbonation. Not quite as creamy as others in the style, but goes down smooth and finishes slightly mouth-coating.
OVERALL: This brew is in limbo between APA and IPA, meaning it could be either a stronger and impressive former or an average latter. This one tastes a little better than average for the style, but it's still not a stand out example. Oddly enough, I think this was my favorite, or at least the best example of its style, out of the three brews in the Minute series. A solid brew to have in Ontario for sure, and one that's really refreshing served cold on a hot day by the pool. I'll be making this, along with Flying Monkey's Hoptical Illusion, one of my staple pales while visiting back home.
