Brewed in honor of the annual Ski to Sea race here in our community. This is a copper colored English style pale ale which emphasizes the subtle blend of imported and domestic malts. The addition of dry hops adds a delightful hoppy aroma and a slight floral, grassy flavor. Released in early Summer.

22. Pours a clear burnished medium amber with a creamy light tan head that fades with time. Nice toasty caramel nose, rich and malty. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty malty caramel on the mid palate. Mild graham crackery finish. Not bad.

On tap at Boundary Bay Brewpub, pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of earthy dry hops, caramel / English malt, and slight fruity overtones. Flavour of earthy dry hops, English malt--more pronounced than the nose--finishing with a butter twang. Superior to the regular ESB for sure.

Bottle:   Amberish caramel in color, thick in color, moderate frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Somewhat of a fruity biscuity aroma.   A bit of soft resin and sweet grapefruit right up front.   This is pretty tasty, even if not terribly hoppy.   Nice malt base, gives it a good body.   This to me almost comes across like a Cask ale.   Could stand to use a little more carbonation.   However, this one was a bit of an unexpected surprise.   Lots of sweet grapefruit in this one.

Bomber. Copper and amber colored with an inch of creamy beige head. The aroma is mostly earthy hops and caramel malt with a little bit of grapefruit. The flavor has strong medicinal hops and bready malt characteristics along with some caramel and orange citrus. The body is crisp with strong carbonation and a mildly bitter, tangy finish. Overall, a flavorful and refreshing brew.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice Bitter hops aroma light malt backing. Loved the bold malt and hops flavor. This has a floral and grassy flavor and finish.
