4/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving Type - 500ml bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance - Clear, golden, verging on a copper in coulor. 2 Fingers of foam white head with heavy lacing left along the glass.

Smell - Standard APA stuffs. Pine and citrus mostly. It's also quite earthy, with hints of caramel malts

Taste - Follows the nose with plenty of piney and ctirus bits. Towards the finish I'm getting large amounts of caramel malts. Bitterness is decent. not overpowering but it's certainly there.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation, medium body, smooth, slick finish.

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

Beer pours clear golden. Small white head. Fades steadily.

The nose contains nice fruity scents, a mix of tropical and citrus. A touch of pine. A bit of malty caramel.

Taste is similar to the nose, but not quite as enjoyable. The same light fruits come through, mainly on the tropical side but with citrus as well. Also a grassy flavour, and a bit of pine. There is a notable oily flavour, more than just a feel. Malt base is present, caramel. Moderately bitter.

Medium bodied, moderate to strong carbonation level. Oily.

Overall, pretty good.

On tap at Bryden's during "Toronto BeerWeek". Very nice wet hopped ale. Pint is a slightly hazy golden amber with a minimal white head that has excellent retention. Grassy aroma with tropical fruit notes and a respectable malt back-bone. The taste starts with pleasantly grainy notes before transitioning to the hop-focused body and finish. Citrus and tropical fruit hop elements with a pleasantly dry ending. Has a decent bitterness with grassy "wet hop" underpinnings. "Best of the West" indeed...

500ml Bottle from the Nepean LCBO for $4.95

Appearance - Clear dark gold colour with an average size white coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, caramel, grapefruit, grassy earthiness

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and grassy hops. There is also some very light grapefruit.

Overall - Reminds me a bit of the Phillips Hop Circle also available at the LCBO. I expected a little bit more from this one, especially since it is fresh. It's an okay beer just not something I'd get excited for every fall.. a little too earthy/grassy for me.
