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.

i like the citrus heavy hops in here, but they fade rather quickly. sessionable and refreshing, just not too deep.

sulawang (691) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2015
Visual: Pours clear copper orange with a decent small creamy head, a small layer of retention, only a few streams, several loose and one tight-fast, sticky lacing. Nose: grapefruit tangerine hops (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: incoming hopped bitterness, orange oil Mid-palate: tart, (lvl-3)-sweetness, fizzy-creamy mouthfeel, (MAIN) yellow grapefruit, toffee malts, bitter peel hops Finish: light sour, grapefruit peel bitter hops, fruity citrus malt. Summary: Bitter peel hops throughout, not a whole lot of carry or length.

In bottle (advent calendar); didn’t really get to drink this one. Another RR beer that foamed up when opened and wasted 80% of the bottle ... not sure what is going on with this brand

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours hazy golden with a moderate frothy white top. Aroma is citrus hops with biscuity malts. Taste is a nice citrus hop flavours and moderate bitterness with a strong grain profile. Nice everyday beer.

MunBro (676) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Very citrusy for a pale ale, which I like. Nice notes of some earthy pine bitterness, and lots of tropical flavour.

Cruzer (94) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Pours clear yellow, aroma of hops and a bit of citrus. Strong hop flavour, has a good kick to it.

AgentAle (943) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Aroma is a sweet maltiness with some earthy and clove hopiness. Taste is a sweet light maltiness with a fairly pronounced bitterness that is of citrus, clove and earthiness. Appearance is a clear orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours Clear amber with a thick white head. Nice hoppy aroma cascade and other pacific north west hops. Nice mouth feel. Thick and rich this is a great pale ale.

RCx240 (109) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Pair golden yellow, foamy white head, some lacing. Aroma is citrus, some bread and toffee. Taste is bread, toffee, nuts, and some hop floralness. Finishes bitter and citrusy, lingering. Full bodied, thick, a little sticky, average carbonation. A little more robust than I was expecting, which was actually a pleasant surprise.

Ferris (6780) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle - Pale malts and some vegative hops. Clear dark gold with a rich white head. Tastes just like it smells in this case. Mellow and very English in style, not nearly the APA it claims.
