3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 This was better than I expected. Nose is citrusy, earthy, with a bit of sweetness. Big hit of fresh peach, too, which was really refreshing, and fairly unique for the style. Taste follows the nose, sweet with a hint of spice, with a nice dry finish. Really nice smooth, creamy mouth feel. Quite drinkable.

Pours a clear light copper colour with about a finger of white head. Right away I get aromas of apples, peaches, pine, honey and some floral notes. There are some interesting nuances in the aromas and flavours. The flavours are pine, honey, edible flowers and a hint of biscuit and malt. This has such a silky mouth feel it just glides down. This is a fabulous IPA and one of the best I’ve had in a while. I would put this one up there with Amsterdam’s Boneshaker and Muskoka’s Mad Tom. The fruit aromas and flavours are very pronounced and beautiful. The mouth feel is absolutely superb.
