Can shared at CBC Islington during the Ryan Tasting - big thanks to Ryan for this one! Great balance here. Dry citrus, restrained pale malt sweetness. Super fresh and drinkable. I could easily sink a few of these.

12oz can, Steasy tasting at CBC Islington. Thanks to Ryan. It pours a pale golden color with a small white head. Aroma is all in the way of hops with a light biscuity touch. Taste is well balanced and fruity hoppy. Citrusy and some dough. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, good one.

Bottle cheers to Ryan. Hazy golden pour with a sticky white head. Nose is very big and grassy! Massive pine needles. Taste shows a heap of grass and pine again while a touch of citric rind comes through. A subtle hint of barnyard notes as well which is appealing. Fantastic

On tap at Icehouse. Pours a hazy gold color. Light pine and citrus hop aroma, taste is light, though the finish gets strong and bitter. Palette cleansing qualities, good for good pairing. Definitely complementary to wings! Very decent session beer.

9/29/13. 12oz can thanks to ZMDR1975. A good addition to my quest for more pale ales. Hazed orange pour with a nice khaki head that laces a ton. Dank hop aroma, resiny, pine, a bit of cat pee and rag, hints of doughy pale malts. Nice flavor, bitter, but not too much, fresh hops, green, floral, citrus, more lingering dankness, resin, and rag. Tasty.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 Can to solo cup at tailgate. A firm bitterness with a very grassy hop flavor. I think I say on this can too long in the rot box. Watery finish. Shoulda drank fresher. Please send me more.

Rerate with fresh can thanks to CLevar. cracked open to an immediate hop nose. drinking from the can. Mostly the cascade-y grapefruit in the nose. not much spicy, a little grassy. Initially the beer is a little thin and watery. Would like to see a little more malt in this, just doesn’t have much body to it. Hop profile keeps the beer together and the bitterness is a little much given the lack of balancing malt. Seems to linger with an almost astringent drying. Good, but would like just a touch more of specialty malt. Bumped rating up 2 points aroma and 2 points.
