This is a great basic pale ale! Nose is tropical fruit with some pine. Arômes are médium fruity, some biscuit, lots of pine. Tastes are light sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Long lasting dry aftertaste. Body is light-medium with lively carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 Can (355 ml). From Graham, thanks! Amber/orange with a medium mostly lasting white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is mainly of citrus and tropical fruits along with caramel, slight pine and a subtle but a bit disturbing vegetable presence... still interesting though. Taste is slightly sweet with citrus, caramel and slight pine, the vegetable presence is less substle here and the hop flavor fade quickly. Slight to moderate bitterness. Light to medium body (ok for the style). Slightly dry mouthfeel. Sticky. Average to good Pale Ale, easily drinkable.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2014 Ambrée pale avec une petite mousse blanc. L’arôme de malt anglais et un peu d’houblon. Le goût et de malt anglais et d’houblon du côte l’ouest du l’Amérique du Nord. Un peu faible. Bonne, mais non-remarkable.

Can. Well poop. I thought I had the IPA, not the PA. Pours clear amber with a humongous off-white creamy head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, cigarette butts, pine. Flavor is the same, medium sweet with a light bitterness. Notes of grass and metal as well. Medium body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Massively carbonated in the cans we’ve had. Hops are citrus/carrot. I’ve never seen carrot listed as a hop characteristic, but seriously when you make an orange/carrot juice with your juicer it tastes like this. Maybe If I drink enough of this I’ll get Jay Kordich eyebrows. Malt is a bit heavier than expected, without many "ringing" qualities, where the hops and malt echo back and forth in the good APAs. Finish is tangerine.
Good, but their ESB and IPA are so awesome that perhaps my expectations were too high.
