This amber brew is a classic American Pale Ale due to its full flavour and hoppy aroma. It has a great balance between the malt and the hop character. The distinctive hoppy flavour and aroma is a result of the addition of over 11 pounds of fresh Cascade hops per batch.

Mild spice level, nice fruity pale ale that is perhaps a bit too sweet. Well balanced hop and malts.

Lagerboy (1334) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2013
Unclear copper orange, creamy off white head settles to a lasting cap. Aroma of pale malts and citrus hops. Semi sweet pale malt taste balanced nicely with a citrus floral hoppiness. Average carbonation, light bodied, moderately hopped. Dry bitter finish. Exceeded expectations, very nice. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

355ml can. 5%abv. Deep gold pour, white cap with good lacing. Hoppy nose, orangey, fruity. Light malt character with some sweetness/caramel, good orangey hop profile, fruity. Mild bitterness, late grainy notes, dry finish. Light to medium body, mooth mouthfeel, easy carboantion. A nice pale ale, I enjoy this more than their IPA.

Good stuff. Nice golden orange pour with a finger of yellowish head. Sweet grapefruit and citrus fruit nose with light floral hops. Sweet and caramelly with a mild to medium hop bitterness and beautiful hop flavors. Overall, not insane, but a good session brew.

Light hops to start with a creamy finish. An enjoyable offering for the local brewery. An accessible beer for the masses. Worth picking up and trying. They were away for awhile, but the brewery is back. 6 pack cans. Also available in 50cl bottle.

omhper (19974) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2010
Bottled in Kimberley, BC. Clear amber, no head. Caramelly nose. Sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. More caramel than hops. Slight resiny bitterness. Feels a bit limp.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle. Clear and dark copper with no head. Not terribly carbonated. Nice citrusy Cascade hop aroma. Body seems to be on the lean side so not very sweet either. Hop flavour has a nice, slightly restrained bitterness.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2009
A little "nicer" than the standard IPA, with a similar head and slightly darker colour. Aroma and taste also reveal the additional hops. I’d dirnk this again anytime.

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2009
Light amber colored ale with think foamy head from 650ml bottle to shaker. Aroma is light in orange zest and floral hop character with some woody malt. Flavor is bitter and bready, with sweet straw and sub-acid fruit mid-palate and a minimally bitter finish with light spice. Mild finish makes body seem thin. A reasonable pale ale that I may give another chance but not overly impressed.
