3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My first beer from this company - a solid if fairly basic pale ale. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with an enormous soapy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was dryish and a bit spicy with notes of floral, herbal and piney hops. The flavor was dryish, tart and bitter with notes of grapefruit, pineapple, perfume and lemon. The finish was long, tangy, bitter and had lingering mixed hops. Medium body. Solid.

355ML Can. Pours a gorgeous orange in the glass. Picture perfect! Fruity aromas of grapefruit and pine. Citrus and pineapple fruit flavors up front with a slight hop finish that leaves me wanting more. Brilliant pale ale.

Very pleasant surprise. Found this at a little cafe in downtown Victoria. Hot day, a sandwich outside, and this little gem with lots of citrus and pine.

This is a nice canned pale ale. It is a very clear beer w/ a foamy head which clings to the glass tenaciously as it dissipates. This is a lighter bodied pale ale w/ a nice mix of citrus and earthy hop elements. The palate is light bodied but not at all thin or watery and overall this is a very well put together beer. I am begging to wish more brewers did something like this w/ their APAs. It seems like most are pushing them towards something like an IPA but I’m liking when they keep things a bit lighter and more session-able.

Can from Rodney Kibzey at Longshot judging tasting. Pours a pleasing copper with a sticky head. Nose is on the piney side with caramel malts coming through. Faint citrus peel as well. Taste has a bracing bitterness that gets muddled with the malt profile. Not a huge fan of crystal malt and this seems to reinforce that idea. Not a bad beer, just nothing really that great. Okay.

On tap at Central City Brew Pub. Pours a clear, very pale yellow. Aroma of floral hops, biscuit, toasted malt. Flavour of citrus, toasted malts. Quite a bitter aftertaste, but less of a hop taste than expected.
