JoeZasada (288) - Beaumont, Alberta, - JUN 29, 2012
Bomber bottle. Pours a haze light amber with a thin, creamy head. Aroma of grass. Taste: a grassy hoppiness, moderately bitter, light malt undertones. Finishes with a citrus like bitterness. Not bad...

andrewturba (969) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy golden-amber with a large sticky dull white head that slowly settles leaving a lot of lace up the glass. Aroma is big citrus, tropical fruits, resin, and caramel maltiness. Flavour is pine, resin, grapefruit, medium bitterness, and moderate sweet malts to balance the delicious hops. Maybe a bit hoppy for a pale ale but the bitterness doesn’t really linger and hell I’m loving it.

Reimer96 (1219) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a huge fluffy white head and tons of lace. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, sweet pale malts and fruity hop esters. Taste is grapefruit, resin, pine, caramel and sweet pale malts. Great balance between hops and malts make this beer very nice to drink.

Druid (86) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2013
Lots of lovely hop aromas followed by a nice medium bitter finish. The malt is restrained and let’s the hops shine. A really good beer

Restrained but well balanced flavours making for an enjoyable beer. Good aroma and mouthfeel, but aftertaste while strong somewhat off in flavour is slightly off in taste.
