The pour is a light golden-orange with a finger of dense yellowish head. The nose has a juicy citrus hop with a lovely lemon and grapefruit notes. A light caramel and bready malt. Lovely taste with a huge citrus hop and NW hop presence. A surprising malt presence in the taste with a sweet caramel and toasty bread notes. Overall, a refreshing and tasty pale ale.

Okay gold body with decent carbonation and head. Plenty of heavy hops on the nose, clouding out all else. Flavour is overbearing hops to the extreme with just a hint of grains. That’s not a bad thing however. This is very good for a pale ale, reminds me of a better homebrew instead of a badly executed macrobrew.

Can from jerc, thanks Jeremy. Pours clear orange, thick white head, gorgeous lacing. Nose is big citrus, fresh rank hop cones, and earthy creaminess. Flavours are nettly hops, with loads of citrus and spice, nice balance, well-rounded. A quality brew from Ontario, blow me over.

650ml Bomber fresh from Brewery.
Pours a gold-amber ale in my glass. Large puffy white cap with great retention and lacing qualities.
Nose: citrusy, fruity with a deep caramel malt tone ( abundant Diacetyl too which becomes more dominant as the beer warms - butterscotch overwhelms when warmer)
Slick mouth feel. Nice chew of bready sweet malts in front are balanced by light hopping Diacetyl is detectable in flavor more so than aroma but it is some what subdued by the malts . Finishes nicely with an increasing bittering and a great bready-bicuity maltiness...lingering bitterness.
This is not an over the top intense Pale but one that is full of flavor and very drinkable...great session ale but the price is a tad steep for that. I really wanted to rate this higher but in spite of it’s great hopping and malt profile The diacetyl really is unforgivable in a beer marketed as premium with a premium price. They did this to me with the green tea ale as well and I really wanted to like that beer as well..

Cervesa molt planera, predomina molt la malta però en general està bona.

Clear goldy orange, lasting white cap & good glass lacing. Light and dry with slightly green hops but beautiful hop character with grapefruit rind and hop resin.Nice dry citrus aroma, orange flavors come forward as the glass warms.

Crispy clean taste, pours a pale yellow, very hoppy smell and a hoppy taste, pretty citrusy, you can really taste the cascade come through and it has a good finish. Good offering
