Ferris (4144) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2013
Draft - Nice light grassy and citrus hops. Cloudy orange with a rich head. Orange peel, grapefruit and some grains. Nice crisp bitterness that finishes well. A very nice refreshing APA.

Pours orange with creamy head. West coast hops (citrus especially) shine through in aroma and in taste. Overbalanced on the hop side a bit perhaps, and could use a little more body (maybe), but an enjoyable drink!

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 16, 2011
Pint on tap while at the brewpub pours a golden orangey color with a small white head and some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is earthy and floral hops and some lightly toasted malts. Taste is a modest hoppy bitterness and some citrusy notes and an underlying malty sweetness. This is borderline close to an IPA and has nicely balanced flavors. Very much appreciated sampling this one.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2011
A strongly hoppy nose. On tasting, a mild hops start becomes stronger but not overbearing at the end. A mild body keeps this beer light and refreshing. This Pale Ale is walking fairly close to the IPA line.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Draft @ Alibi room. Orange and bright with slight haze and a cask head. Earthy and floral aroma. The flavors are very fruity. Has a great balance and a nice hoppy finish. Very good APA!

VertBaconStrips (2081) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2009
On tap. Light orange brew with a messy white cap. Fruity (apricot, orange, strawberry), nondescript malts that lack a solid backbone, still, it is a bit interesting. Back of the mouth spicy flavours, lots of hops, almost leafy, bit of spruce, orange, apple, weak grapefruit, ok malts. Medium bodied with a nice soft bitter finish. I like this and with a bit more work this could become their flagship brew.

Crit (3350) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2008
Hazy amber,loose fast fading beige head. Citrusy, light cat pissy nose.Medium citrus hop profile, astringent finish. Lacks carbonation, even for a cask

BarleyMowat (17) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2008
A strongly hoppy nose. On tasting, a mild hops start becomes stronger but not overbearing at the end. A mild body keeps this beer light and refreshing.

CCCP (16) - , British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2008
Had this one at Central City’s Cask Festival and in my opinion it was the class of the show. Faintly cloudy, bright amber, with a very subtle ale nose. Big grapefruit start that carries through. Great Flavour. Great beer.

CapFlu (4518) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival 2007 in Victoria on September 7th, 2007. Good hop aroma. Mixed 5-Alive flavour with a hop cantaloupe.
