pours a clear deep gold with a frothy 2 finger white cap - good lacing ability. Aroma is pine-floral with hints of peach and sweet pale malt. Medium bodied with a bright fresh hop character. Front side of the flavor profile is succulent hops (pine, herbal) with the sturdy malt spine in a support role - goes to a clean bright increasingly bitter finish with green hop bite at the end. Not overly complicated but a boiler plate brew to showcase the fresh hops - well done.

Slightly hazy dark straw color with low activity and a cloud of floating unfiltered particles. Foamy and faintly frothy white 3 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with faint lacing. Flavors of pineapples, lemon, peach, sweet grains, caramel, herbal spices. A bit fruity and sugary, more bitter with sharp zesty citrus. Slick and smooth full body with crispy carbonation. Medium strength finish, lingering grassy and leafy hops, floral and dry flowers with faint clove. A hoppy kind of pale ale with good accessibility that can be used to train someone to enjoy IPAs. Quite tender and delicious. Well refreshing with clean dry smoky hopped feel. Good balance and I like the complexity. Overall very good quality craft.

Serving Type: 473 mL Can

A- Pours a hazy pale golden topped by a frothy 1/2 finger head with poor retention. Patchy lacing.

S- Not really getting much from the nose here. Slightly citrus, slightly metallic. Nothing that I would call exciting.

T- Bright and punchy citrus hops with a hint of toasty malt. Nothing complex, just a great, simple flavour.

M- Medium bodied and moderate, yet prickly carbonation.

O- Aside from the nearly non-existent aroma (I seem to be the only one with this issue judging from the other reviews), this is an excellent example of a "Harvest Ale". Great flavour in an easy drinking package.

Pours golden . Nice head . Good lacing and retention. Deep golden a honey haze. Nose is bright and citrus. Slight tones of hay. A slight sweetness. Brightness comes thru with taste also. Sharp citrus hop punches thru the carb. Cuts quickly in the mouthfeel. Ends in a satisfying bitterness from the hop. And no real obvious abv. Lagery and resiny finish. Very satisfying and enjoyable. Complex but very sessional.

This, to me, is far and away the best of the local wet hop offerings this year. Lots of beautiful super-fresh Cascade aroma and flavour. This year's switch to 500ml cans at three bucks a pop means I'll be drinking a bunch of these while they last.

Musty cedar hop notes and burnt caramel on the nose. Surprisingly bitter citrus rind hop flavours with a buttery caramel malt backbone, hints of toasted grains and sour citrus flavours that linger. Very dry on the finish. A pleasant surprise, loads of hops, intensely bitter and fresh hop profile. Me likey!

Bottle from the LCBO, poured a clear light golden colour with good retention and lacing. Aroma is leafy and tropical with grapefruit, lemon, some pleasant florals. Pleasing taste with a biscuity malt backbone and nice fruity hop character, a bet cerealy with fruit loop character, grapefruit juice, and some orange, a bit pithy and ending a touch bitter. Good but not overly inspiring, a nice tasty session pale though with decent balance and flavour.
