3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Maloneís Urban Drinkery in Downtown Vancouver. A murky golden orange color. Little head on this pour. Bitter hops on the nose. Itís bitter up front; very bitter for a lager in fact. A bit of malt lurking in the background. Possibly the bitterest lager Iíve ever tasted! Not bad.

On tap at Moose Winooskis for girls birthday. Pours kinda grey blonde in colour. Definitely lots of hops here, but kinda confused on what type of beer this is.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap: A hazy orange-amber ale with a rocky 2 finger white cap. Moderate carbonation. Nose has citrus, fruit and some yeast funk over grainy tones. Medium-light in body, with a fruity-citrusy dry character. Flavour has biscuit malts, ale malt wetness is in check, succulent fruitiness from a warm fermentation and bitter citrus tastes in the front - goes to a fast bittering dry finish with a light bitter aftertaste. Smooth and mellow from cold lagering. I donít know if this is an IPA by any stringent application of style guidelines but it is a very decent, drinkable IPA hybrid, with all the traits you look for in a quaffable ale - balanced bittering fruitiness, dry finish - very nice effort by this patriarch craft brewer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brew sporting an orange or amber colour. muted aroma, some hoppy and citrus aroma, no malts. More of the same on the palate with a light leafy hoppy finish. lacks complexity but Iíd rather have this than anything else the brewery makes. Just quit over filtering and theyíd have something better.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Orange, slight cloud. Fizzy white head. The waitress at Jack Astorís said "itís pretty gross". I said "thatís exactly what I want"!
Itís got some citrus as well as grassy hop, but mostly a malty golden lager. Itís ok. And a jack astorís, ok is the best youíre gonna get.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap at the Beer Academy. Listed as an imperial pale lager, 60 IBU. Light grapefruit coloured body, with a half inch of retained head in their goblet. Lots of thick lace. Significant hop aroma. There is definitely citra hops used. The mouthfeel is a bit rough, with strong carbonation. It was served way too cold. Still, flavourful and drinkable.
