tiong (3682) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Draught @ Vancouver Craft Beer Week Festival 2014, Vancouver, BC

Quite malty and stuffy for an APA, feels more like an English pale ale. Smooth, slightly watery and crisp bitterness. A bit boring.

Masterkush7 (501) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Pours a medium creamy white head atop a clear orange body. Nose of sharp pine resin. Good malt base, Seville oranges and a lemony finish. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pictoman (450) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
Poured from 650mL bottle. Clear, orangey yellow with minimal off-white head. Aroma of mild citrus hops and mild sweet malt. Taste same, quite mild, a little watery.

Nice change of pace. Limited aroma but strong mouth feel. Enjoyed but will not seek out in future.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear dark gold body with a large frothy white head. Decent citrusy nose with some bready and caramel maltiness. The flavor is on the sweeter side for my tastes in the style, rather lightly bitter hoppiness. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky and clingy with moderate fizzy carbonation. Decent APA, but a little too sweet for my tastes. Bump up the bitterness on this guy to balance things out and it would be an improvement.

Pours orange, good head. Lightly hoppy, straw, fruit, local, I support it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagerboy (1187) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
Bomber. Clear light copper, lasting creamy foamy white head leaves impressive definitive stepped lacing. Aroma of sweet biscuit malt and fruity citrus hops. Nicely balanced taste of mildly sweet, smooth easy pale malts and lightly bitter citrus hop, some floral and spruce notes. Average carbonation, lighter body, mildly hopped. Very sessional, goes down as easy as an inebriated tuber without a personal floatation device. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Tap. Golden with small head. Pale ale with mild hops. Smooth but light in flavor.

Druid (84) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2013
Nice malt and hop aromas. Pours honey colour with a nice foamy head. Very easy drinking and full bodies taste. A medium finish with lots of complexities to explore. An excellent pale ale.
