COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís been said that ďCanada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an identity.Ē This beer doesnít 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 Ė weíve really made a mess of things. What have we done? Sorry.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014 Canít believe this is my first time trying this. Pours honey brown with a soft cap that gives up its ghost quickly but offers serious lacing as the beer makes its way down the glass. Aroma promises hops & while they donít pop as much as Iíd want they balance well with the bitterness. I prefer their more creative offerings but this is a solid pale ale that delivers what youíd want.

diggerdave (2) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013 does not count
appearance and aroma were good, poured well. Immediate citrus/pineapple taste, then an extreme bitter aftertaste. 6 people around table trying beers, none would take second taste.

Big olí 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 canít quite identify. Less citrus on the palate (but itís 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 didnít 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 itís 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.
