Had while on an Alaskan cruise. This one was probably my favorite of the brewery of what I had. A nice hop flavor. Definitely the one I got the most while on the ship.

kevinator (887) - The Colony, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Surprisingly really good and fresh. It had a strong piney and floral aroma. The color was of cider with a little bit of haze and a white head. Good crisp palate that matched the high carbonation. The citrus and grapefruit hop flavors hit me first with a slightly grainy malt backbone. A refreshing beer.

Nikiel (877) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle from 12 pack. Pours gold with fine white foam. Smells lightly sweet with hints of pine and tropical fruit. Tastes over-carbonated and watery, slightly wheaty and ends very bitter.

stevoj (2076) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Pours light amber with high rocky head. Lots of sticky lacing and a nice piney hoppy aroma, with a little malt in the background. Taste is full on astringent hops which lingers on the palate. Bitter but enjoyable.

Lubiere (9871) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2013
A golden amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with refreshing floral hops, classic. In mouth, a dry crisp biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, a bit light but good for summer. On tap at Downtown Brew fest LV 2013.

Brouwerij (918) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear copper with medium off white head, decent retention and a little lacing. Aroma is piney, resinous, citrus and floral hops. Flavor is citrus and resinous hops, with a mildly oily, bitter hop finish. Hint of malt in the finish as well. Moderate carbonation, light body, and crisp texture. A pretty good pale ale, hoppy, floral, drinkable.

Sammer (1029) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle. Taste is citrus, pine, hops and summer fruit. Easy drinking and smooth.

MattH (642) - California, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle. Orange gold pour. Aroma of citrus and spice. Flavor is mild with some resin and spice. Body is light. Overall an easy to drink pleasant beer.

Nuffield (3667) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Bright aroma with a good floral quality, especially early on. Flavor-wise, this settled into a less distinctive APA, with moderate malt backbone and tempered hops--I’m surprised to see the Cascade and Centennial, less surprised by the Citra. Drinkable. Bottle.
