COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a clear bubbly orange-amber with a big lasting fluffy white head. Pretty nice looking beer. Fairly mild but pleasant aroma of citrus hops. The palate is quite fizzy and overly carbonated.

Pours an amber head that sticks cloudy to the bottom. Minor lacing. The taste is of caramel malt, citrus and some pine. come across as well balnced and drinkable. I liked it and would get it again.

ljthiessen (726) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
Growler. Beautiful amber golden pour with a thin white head. Very resinous, pine and cedar aroma, a little toffee. Flavour is pretty light and soft, a little pine and a touch malty, but watery and thin. A little disappointing.

Masterkush7 (580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
Poured clear bubbly amber with a huge long-lasting pillowy foamy off-white head. Nice aroma of mildly resiny-citrusy hops and appreciable sweet roasty malt, definitely a lactose note there. Taste is muted and blended malt/hops, somewhat resiny, with a grapefruit finish, somewhat quick diminishing - very fizzy mouthfeel, I was quite surprised. A good APA, but not a great one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MunBro (808) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2014
Mild spice level, nice fruity pale ale that is perhaps a bit too sweet. Well balanced hop and malts.

Lagerboy (1558) - 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)

pintbypint (2940) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
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.

patricks110 (2063) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 30, 2012
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.
