Amber red with a nice foamy head. Strong "cascadian hops" aroma. Huh? Anyways, sweet brown sugar, rich malt, slight dankness. A nice, approachable beer which hides its alcohol content very well.

Drank it out of a bottle at a friend’s birthday party. Wish I had a glass, however I really enjoyed it. Honestly I don’t recall how it tasted or smelled, just that I liked it and would definitely drink it again. Parallel 49 BC has joined the game with sass!

Bottle. Sharp fruity malt and hop combination. A bit sweet and sugary. Choppy finish. Not bad.

Caramel/Crystal malt is heavy in the nose with plenty of orange, citrus hop character also notable. Hazy amber-brown body is topped by a low, tan, fine bubbled head that recedes to a thin partial cover with scant lace. Flavour follows the aroma - big, round, sweet, caramel malts joined by citrus and floral notes with a moderatly strong hop bitterness. Medium body with forceful, lightly prickly effervescence. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (sampled Fall 2012).

pootzboy (1578) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2013
bottle - pours a hazed copper-red ale with s smallish 1 finger tight cap that reduces to a surface lace and lasts. Aroma is flush with west coast hops - citrus, mango, grapefruit, pine, but only a small hint of caramel malt. Flavour follows aroma with a bit more malt balance - more crystal in this than caramalts - too bad because that wouls compliment the hop varieties used. Good drinking ale with a mild hop bite."

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2013
341mL bottle from the unparalleled pack, 6%. Clear amber/toffee coloured pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty sweetness, and a strong citrus/floral hoppy aroma. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Light bitterness in the finish, quite smooth. Hoppy punch and a marbley-malty sweet note. Delicious.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
341 ml bottle. Pours a finely veiled, red amber with a resilient white head and some sediments through...Aroma is malt, caramel, earth. Flavor is fruity, caramel, sandy, toasty malt. Finish is faint notes of citrus, subtle bitterness. A touch of lingering fruit. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Good red ale!

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2013
Clear medium copper, creamy off white head settles and lasts. Floral citrus hop aroma. Spruce and citrus hop taste dominates, a caramel malty sweetness appears halfway thru. Average carbonation, light bodied, moderately hopped. Finishes dry and bitter.

cfrancis (2249) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2013
Pours dark ruby red with a velvet off white top. Aroma is caramel malts, big amarillo hops. Taste is a great offset of big caramel malts with a great bite of pine hops.

Its a nice colour. The beer is well balanced and easy drinking beer. But nothing that stands out to much either. It is enjoyable enough to drink as a session drinking beer.
