Awesome aroma of resin and citrus, really incredible. Aroma lasts quite well, good clean yeast character. Great beer. Yellow clear goodness. Nice bitterness, but a bit more biting bitterness with a little more body would have made this excellent.

beerism (6) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2014 does not count
Nice beer with a beautiful, fruity nose. Medium bitter on the palate with a good length considering the 5.5%Vol. (which was printed on the label). Nevertheless a lack of fruitiness on the palate and nothing (too) special ;-)

Ferris (3887) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle - Leafy pine hops. Clear gold with a nice big beige head. Little pine and resin, light malts and well balanced bitterness. Nice to see something true to style, well done and skip the extra’s.

RumRunner101 (766) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Copper pour. Aroma is big and juicy with tropical fruits and grapefruit. Nice biscuity malt backing with big citrus bitterness and other fruits. Quite big and flavourful for a pale ale. Impressive.

Gerbeer (1736) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper with light head. Aromas of pink grapefruit, pine and onions. Flavors of pine, grass, light toasted malts, and limes. Nice, and easy to quaff.

Pours a dark gold/amber, but is still clear. A light head also develops. The aroma is very hoppy, smelling of grass and citrus. It has a medium body with medium carbonation. The taste is of malts, biscuits, and some hops (though not as pronounced as in aroma) producing a light bitterness.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Light orangey-amber. Aroma is fresh, old school c hops, taste is the same, with lightly apricotty notes, grapefruit zest, and biscuity malts. Lighter version of the IIPA, well-balanced and refreshing.

2014-06-03, draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
as Extra Conditioned Citra Hopped Pale Ale, 7-4-7-4-14=36

Hazy amber color with compact head. Nice citrusy hop aroma, a bit sweaty. Dry mouthfeel, the caramel flavor is dry with straws and toffee accent; bold bitterness, not directly linked to Citra.
Quite balanced, not cutting edge but nice.

2014-04-03, cask at Alibi Room, Vancouver, dry-hopped with Falconer’s Flight, 10oz
8-5-7-5-16=41

Cloudy light amber color with large frothy head. The aroma is fresh and fruity, apricot jam, light mango, light tropical fruits, lemon. Undercarbonated, warm, with soft mouthfeel; the malt flavor is quite nice, with a toffee accent; very light, pleasing residual sweetness; quite strong bitterness, just as required, leading to a very fruity and resiny final, sweet oranges and tropical fruits.
Very good.

2014-03-25, cask at Tap & Barrel, Coal Harbour, Vancouver, dry-hopped with Amarillo, 14oz
8-3-7-4-15=37

cloudy dull amber color with generous frothy head. Powerful Amarillo aroma, fruity as expected, plenty of oranges, but also metallic, green. Soft mouthfeel; the malt flavor is delicate, maybe simple; good bitterness level although it seems aggressive in the final.
Fresh.

2014-03-11, draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, dry-hopped with Citra, 12oz
7-4-7-4-14=36

Cloudy golden color, dull. Fresh hop aroma, citrusy, a bit earthy. Dry and lean mouthfeel; dry malt flavor with lemony hops, tea; strong bitterness; a nit earthy and animal. Long final.
Powerful option.

mcberko (6300) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
On tap at the Alibi Room for the 500th beer list, pours a hazy copper orange with a small white head. Aroma screams out fresh citrus hops, loads of resin, and just enough malt backing. Flavour is very bright and potent for a pale ale, with loads of resinous hops, citrus notes, pine and biscuity malt backing. Super flavourful, closer to an IPA in its hoppy goodness. Really excellent stuff.
