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 (1440) - 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 (82) - 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 (4981) - 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.

shaynsawchuk (552) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2014
355 mL can. Pours crystal clear, golden with a lacy white head. Gently biscuity malt leads to some citric and herbal hops. Light grapefruit and pineapple. Crisp and well bittered. Easy drinking and refreshingly light bodied. Modest carbonation. Crushable.

355ml can THE pale ale. Chewy deliciousness. Aromatic and packed with taste. Rounded mouthfeel. Orange-leaning hops -- solid caramel malt base. Great, drawn-out bitter finish. A beer for all seasons.

northropfrye (2304) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Light ruby orange body with foamy white head and some nice lacing. Citrus aroma. Taste is mildly bitter, a little medicinal or metallic and not as flavourful as I was hoping. Okay.

ljthiessen (511) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle. Golden yellow pour with a sudsy off-white head. Flavour is surprisingly hoppy and bitter, some biscuit and caramel notes. Medium body. Drinks more like a session IPA - not bad, but a little overly bitter for the style, in my opinion.

A fantastic pale ale. Big citrus and tropical fruit aromas and flavors that are supported nicely by a malty caramel driven backbone. Great stuff.
