Hazy orangeish copper with a generous foamy white head. Nice balanced and complex aroma full of earthy sweet toffee with a sweet grapefruit zest and sweet leafy/floral hop tone. Flavor starts with a sweet and malty toffee flavor, combined with a gentle floral/lemony bitterness finished with a leafy hop flavor. All very balanced and very tasty.

Ferris (12106) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle - Cereal, grassy and some citrus hops. Some toasted malts as well. Clear gold with a huge head. Tropical and subtle fruits, much tamer than the smell. Malts and a bit of bitterness give this a very sessionable pale ale that you could likely drink all night without killing you palate. A nice ale, but not as aggressive as I would have hoped.

When poured chilled there’s very little head and an okay golden body, clear, slight bubbling. Very sweet overlapping hop profile that’s not too overpowering but incredibly sweet. Flavour is a sparkly lemon with intense citrus notes and a very dry hop finish. Leaves the tongue scrunched up. Quite well done for one of these hoppy pacific northwest brews.

gpekar (487) - Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Poured a lightly hazy orangish amber. The head was about 2 fingers and a creamy light beige with large bubbles. The head reduced to about 1/2 inch in a few minutes. There were lots of carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. A very nice aroma of citrus grapefruit and caramel malt. The beer has a thicker creamy texture and good carbonation. There is a good grapefruit flavor and a grapefruit rind hops bitterness. There is also a good caramel malt sweetness that balances the hops nicely. The hops lasts well into the finish with a good mellow bitterness. Kind of surprised that this isn’t rated higher. This is an amped up pale ale. It could be a very good IPA.

Bottle. Light orange, white head. Ooooohhh I like this hop profile! Guava, gooseberries, a little cat piss. Quenching. Not sure why this doesn’t score higher.

This starts with a malty nose. Not unpleasant but nothing to write home about. The flavor is malt forward followed up with a refreshing bitterness. Overall a nice pale ale.

Pours Orange and caramel. Taste is floral and lots of citrus. Light bitterness. Nice long finish. A very very tasty beer on a summer day. Would by again.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours orange with white head. Doesn’t smell like much- slightly caramelly. Tastes citrusy, smooth, easy-drinking, good malt backbone. Okay, nothing special.

mansquito (5104) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($2.50): Pours a sort of hazy orange color with a off-white head. Light fruitiness, coupled with maltiness. Taste is somewhere around medium hoppiness and some of that lingers onto the aftertaste. Not exactly perfectly balanced. A pretty meh beer.

pictoman (908) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
Poured from 6 fl oz bottle. Clear, orangish-yellow. Citrusy hop aroma. Nice full hop taste, but without a bitter kick at the end. Finish is just above-average.
