COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s been said that “Canada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an identity.” This beer doesn’t help much with that crisis. From the fiercely irresponsible stereotypical image on the front of the can to the distinctly American style of the beer inside it – we’ve really made a mess of things. What have we done? Sorry.

Big ol’ can. Hazy golden honey pour with an almost white head that leaves a fairly thick ring of lace. Fresh citrus notes with a light burnt note, some grain and a little off note I can’t quite identify. Less citrus on the palate (but it’s still there) with a light caramel flavour. Slightly astringent with a hint of cardboard. Decent enough for a session brew.

473 ml. can. Pours Clear golden colour with rich beige head that keeps well with some lacing. Aroma piney, plums, apple and citrucy hops. Taste at the beginning piney and citrucy and then very bitter from hops. Also sweet but bitter finish. Moderate carbonation. Not a bad IPA from a nice brewery.

Can from my brother in law. He rules. One time he muled me back about $300 worth of danish beer, now he just mules me random canadian garbage. Awesome. Thanks Tompete! Smells like malt forward grape fruit juice. Similar flavor, a bit astringent, some aspirin. Bitter finish, not bad.

REALLY enjoyed this one. Maybe simplistic, but looked and tasted like a wheatbeer crossed with the hoppy IPA. Malty and spicy at first, but then just enough tartness to clean your palate. Not too heavy and not bloaty aftertaste.

Pours Gold with a long lasting white head. Aroma of Sweet malts, hints of citrus and pine. Hops are not to bitter, but certainly noticeable, and there is some slight sweetness coming from the citrus. I think all the elements are there, it just didn’t come together very well

A "nice" summer beer if there ever was one. This West Coast Pale Ale has a deep golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma is of hops and citrus, exactly what you would expect. Palate has a clean finish, nothing overpowering or too much in the way of a "wow" factor, but it’s certainly solid. A nice mix of citrus fruits and hops going down. Overall this is a good beer, one that will be a go-to in the future for your average beer drinking day.

Canette 473ml. De couleur ambrée-orangée et claire. Nez fruité (agrumes, faibles notes d’abricots), moyen de houblon floral, moyennement citrique, aux notes herbeuses et résineuses, léger de grains de malt sucrés avec des notes de pain et de caramel. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture aux notes huileuses et très faiblement résineuse. Goût fruité (agrumes sucrées, traces d’abricots) avec une moyenne amertume de houblon florale et moyennement citrique (une amertume présente en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt, un léger goût de pain et des petites notes de caramel doux puis en finale l’amertume revient en avant-plan en affichant un caractère plus hebreux et légèrement résineux. Post-goût long et un peu asséchant, moyennement amer de houblon floral, moyennement citrique, légèrement herbeux et résineux avec des notes fruitées (zeste d’agrumes).
