Bottle from the LCBO, 500ml into a pint glass. Best before date of September 2011.

Pours an orange-amber with a healthy two finger white head, that's quite dense and creamy. Retains well. Nose is full of hops, dry hopped immensely it seems. Sweet citrus, pine and some dank weed even. Wow. Didn't expect that at all. Taste has some bitter hops initially which linger throughout and long into the finish. Malt is relatively thin, a slight metallic note yet there are some big, juicy hops in there still. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, and almost watery at times, but there's some good flavour here, so I'll give this the benefit of the doubt. Nose gave me high expectations of this brew that weren't present when I purchased this and was let down tastewise. A good effort overall, and certainly not something I expected from this brewery. Closer to an APA, methinks...

Brewed at Trafalgar based on a Black Creek partner recipe. Enjoyed at the brewpub. Carbonation is right there, mouthfeel a bit on the watery side consistent with Trafalgar. Mosty malts, with a secondary bitterness, that accumulates from the finish. Not very drinkable.
Neutral aroma, light coloured.
