Part of the central city/parallel 49 advent calander. Pours a nice clear copper color with a thick off white head. Moderately carbonated. Aroma of pine and light fruit. Taste of pine, medium bitterness and hoppy. Very good. Overall delicious. Good job central city.

Wonderful. Well-balanced, sweetish without being malty. I asked the man (large beer belly) which BC beer was closed to Sierra Nevada. "Never heard of it," quoth he. Well, that concerned me some, but I described it, and this is what he recommended. He was right. In fact...it may even give SV a run for its money.

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.

Kept checking the label to see if this wasn’t an IPA, it was that good. Nice amber colour, a mild aroma, and a great taste of hops and malt. Easy drinking mouthfeel with a bit of sweetness at the finish. A natural session beer.

from notes at Cask Days 2011. Nice cloudy ochre colour w. very slight foamy head. Aroma is noticeable sweet and piney hop bitters. Flavours are sweet and hoppy. Citra resiny bitters stand out. Nice balanced lingering aftertaste.

Serving: from can--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: lightly perfumy hoppy and somewhat metallic. Appearance: huge, rocky, off-white, initial head with excellent lacing and fully lasting longevity. Hazy, light-amber body. Taste: lightly sweet, citrusy initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with average duration Palate: light bodied with watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very good. I’d be happy to drink this again.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2013 Many, many samples since 2004 - didn’t realize I had given it this low a rating initially at the brewpub. Deep amber pour with a very sticky white head. The nose is awesome. Pure pine and grapefruit with a lot of malt through the backbone. Not sweet but has a definite grainy malt character. Assertive bitterness (really - this is smack in the middle of IPA territory) and a nice refreshing finish. It is a very solid canned pale ale. Worth seeking. Decent head falling back to thin lace. Faint copper colour, aromatic piny smell. Some caramel maltiness. Not enough bittering hops although the hop flavour was decent, if a little too faint. Good, but could be much better.

From cask at Volo Cask Days 2011. Pours slightly hazy golden with little white foamy head. Very strong hops aroma and slightly bitter, mostly sweet, citrus hoppy taste.

Cask days 2011. Incredible citrus aroma. Every citrus fruit under the sun. No malt to speak of, just the way i like it. Incredible hoppy finish, juicy, fruity, citrucy. Medium bitter finish, with an aftertaste that is incredible. Citra is an incredible hop.
Earlier Rating: 3/2/2009 Total Score: 3
nice golden amber pour, with a nice white head. Solid aroma of grass, hops, and some slight honey. The flavor is hoppy, but not overly hoppy. There is some nice malt notes, and more of the grass, with a lingering soft hoppy bitterness. Not outstanding, but a solid, quenching, tasty amber ale.
