Bronze, managed diacetyl, toasty, well-balanced and there’s a fair bit of hop bitterness. A polarizing beer - the diacetyl is a bit challenging but the objective seems to be to create that blend of diacetyl and caramel, moderated by a fairly rich bitterness. If that’s what they are going for, they nailed it. If they were going for a SNPA clone, a west coast pale, it missed the mark by quite a bit.

Bomber. Clear orangey copper, thin tan foam mostly fades. Aroma of floral citrus hop and caramel. Taste is a floral hop bitterness, citrus, lightly sweet toasted caramel malt, some spicy evergreen. Average carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. Pleasant. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Tried at Hopscotch. A solid but not outstanding pale ale. Pours hazy amber with average head. Smells of average malts with lighter hop flower notes. Palate was slick with lively carbonation. Flavour is a good balance of malt and hop with a long bitter hop finish.

Rich amber pour, not much head or lacing. Subtle hop and citrus notes flow nicely into some nicely tamed malt flavours. A nice, easy drinking pale ale.

650ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger of white head that laves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is floral wit some caramel and citrus. Taste is a bold citrus and pine hop bitterness with a light caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A nicely done brew that suits the style and deserves a tasting.
