A deep pale gold colour, very much like brass (as suggested on the packaging). Mild aroma, mostly grains and hops. Medium-light body with a bit of a metallic flavour, bread and some citrus hops, and a good amount of bitterness. Very drinkable, and at the same time, not totally anonymous - Iíll remember this beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright, fresh citrusy, hop forward aroma is clean and inviting. Lightly hazy golden body is topped by a low white head that recedes rapidly to a partial cover and ring with scant lace. Sweet cereal malts are offset by citrus hop flavours and notable bitterness but the thin body is a bit of a letdown and doesnít really support the level of carbonation leaving it a bit harsh on the tongue. Tulip glass. Fridge temperature. Bottle.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I cannot believe Iím saying this (I generally despise anything hoppy), but this was a decent drink. Technically not an IPA, it seems to be trying to be one, but avoiding the horrific hop overkill of that trendiest of styles. Pronounced hop scent (bright and citrusy). Flavor is bitter and hoppy as would be expected, but doesnít linger like an unwelcome metallic houseguest. Bitterness is pleasant, bordering on too hoppy but shy of any offensive IPA flavor. I can actually drink and enjoy this. Palate was fine, medium carbonation, smooth. Not bad at all.

Bottle. 5%. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white head. . Aroma is fruity, grassy hops, sweet malts and grains. Taste is more of the same, cool, crisp and refreshing. Good session brew.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not entirely bad, especially for style. Pours clear orange with fuzzy head. Aroma of light hops, crisp malt. Finishes slightly malt sweet, some sourness. Bottle.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Single bottle purchased at a Crowfoot Liquor Store in Calgary, AB on 11/22/2012. Colour: Gold and brown with medium white head. Nose: summer grass field, plain doughnut, pretty plain and not overly fragrant as stated. Taste: medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Some middle citrus hops and a medium body. Thin mouth feel. A bit astringent on the finish. Nice looking but just poorly crafted and lacking real depth in my opinion.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clean, yellow color with a frothy, creamy white head. Aroma is light overall with some notes of lemon and a bit of grassy hops with a light grainy finish. Flavor has a solid balance of light grassy notes and pils graininess. Light, crisp with lower amount of carbonation. Overall not too bad. Hops used fit the style very nicely.

Not too hoppy and more bitter. Standard Okanagan Spring practice here by not overdoing any element.
