On the nose, I’m getting some grapefruit, watermelon, a bit of citrus, and maybe even a hint of bubble gum. On the palate some sweet fruits, and some of that grapefruit/watermelon combo. It’s all a tad light though. My thought is Muskoka is making this as a kinder, gentler, friendlier Mad Tom, as a sort of gateway beer to those who are curious about craft beers, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge off the deep end. Very quaffable, but won’t replace the heavy hitter IPA’s in my fridge

Poured from bottle into stemmed glass, colour is a light golden, slightly cloudy, with a pretty solid white lacing and film.

S - a firm grapefruit citrus, rindy, with a firm bready maltiness, gooseberry, lemon, full of C hops and quite a firm hopiness. A hint of a sourness that might have come from bittering with Citra? Mostly this is grapefruit and florals.

T - Starts with grapefruit, juicy and tart, as more berry notes fill out, blueberry, currents, some slick tart bitterness to it. Underpinned by a mostly pale maltiness. Get some raspberry and lemons, full of citrus flavour and a floral overtone as well, you can feel more of the lightness in the body as the crispness fades out but the bitterness and hop profile work well in good balance to satisfy while refreshing.

M - A good tart bitter crispness to it, quite refreshing, towards the midpoint the malt starts to fall away as you get the indication of the lower abv, then you have a nice lingering sticky hop bitterness. As a session pale or IPA, this really satisfies on the flavour front while being light and sessionable. Carbonation is moderate and balanced.

Quite solid PA for sessioning, especially if you want something with a bit more of a C hop character. My only point against was the collapse of the malt profile and the hops could have been a bit more dynamic, but it works as a flavourful session for summer.

Had this on-tap while at milestone's yesterday for dinner. Served cold into a Muskoka pint glass.

Appearance- bright yellow straw coloured, with a finger of sparkling white head and ok retention time. The beer is a bit cloudy, not being opaque but not transparent. Some lively carbonation rushes to the top of the glass. Sticky lacing left on the sides of the glass.

Smell- light floral aroma with some mild grassy aspects. The nose is not potent but very welcoming. Some mild citrus presents itself with lemon being the most prominent suspect.

Taste - pretty much like the nose, some light floral flavours and a modest amount of citrus. Hops shine through as being clean but not too refined or processed. Mild buttery grain throughout.

Mouthfeel - crisp and clean, well carbonated. Moderately dry finish.

Overall - as just an american pale ale, it holds it's own, but as a lighter beer option for something session able in the summer, this fits the bill really nicely. Highly recommended, especially if you're having more than a couple.
