This was one of my favourites at Bushwakker. A nice hoppy APA. You get quality bitterness balanced with malts, as per the style. A nice beer.

Tanks Paco! Wonderful clean deep amber.. I think... the lighting in my basement sucks balls. Digging the aroma - upfront and in my face - lemon, powedered orange flavour, apricot, floral, caramel, light roast - all nice after the bock I had last night. There is also a light herbal something or maybe a candy red licorice or something. 465 years. That is when the last lunar eclipse happened on the winter solstice. Happens tonight. Now you know and are less stupid for it. Big ass hop flavour. This is one bitter bastard. Lightly watery pine, almost peppery quality, a bit of roast, not soft caramel, I just had a vision of riding a Shetland pony, pantless. and itís name was Alberto... ????????????? decent citrus, grapefruit that is only half unsweetened, something else. Good bitter finish that is pretty long, somewhat subdued and leaves me wanting more. Too bad the carbonation is a bit off and this didnít have a thicker flavour. Either way, Iím just glad to be slugging back something with hops.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Semi cloudy amber color,small off white head that had a nice long hangtime then faded slowly to a nice lace.The aroma was mildly malty with a nice fruity side some bubble gum and a decent hop side.Very nice brew with a nice malty side up front then a quick turn to garpefruit and mild pine notes with a mild hop presence.Very very nice brew lots of light flavor very floral with a good drinkability side.I could really use more of this brew for a summer cool down brew.Thanks go to OKBeer for sending this very nice surprise my way.

I love this bar, but the only notes I have are the numbers, which is unfortunate....

Wow, Iím the first to rate this one. Medium golden colour with a thick white frothy and fizzy head. Earthy and slight butterscotch aroma. Earthy and slightly piny flavours with a pleasant bitter finish. Medium bodied and quenching feel.

This is probably one of my favourite Bushwakker beer. Itís similar to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (hence the name) but its a bit grassier than that. Pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma and taste of citrus hops and pine. Great session beer.

This was one of my favourites at Bushwakkers, and Iím not even a big IPA fan. This was well balanced and not overpowering. Good flavour.

A hazy shade of orange, with a greying head that held up well. Aroma like a bouquet of wildflowers just got pollentated by Bees, all that with a side of strawberry jam. If only more PAs smelled like this!! Crunchy biscuit pale malt taste, just the right amount of carbonation and lingering bitter finish to make this one another winner in my book.
