Introducing the latest six pack that I killed with absolutely no trouble. Very tasty pale. 12 oz can poured. Pours a light copper color with a lasting foam head. Wet, grassy hop aroma. Hop forward flavor with light orange, and a clean finish. Nicely done. Great sessionable beer here.

Can sample at a tasting at Trouble’s place. Thanks Denny. Cloudy amber with a white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma with a little pine. Dry, hoppy taste, a little leafy. Light-to-medium body, dry finish.

Can sample at a tasting at Dror’s place. Thanks Denny. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of "green" hops, slightly oniony, with a stale note. Flavor has a bit of sweetish malt, and bitter hops, slightly "green". Medium-bodied.

Out of the can and into a pint glass; orange, hazy and bubbly; the head is only a whiter shade of the brew itself. Almost no aroma. The finish is bitter and unpleasant. Not going back.

Another seemingly expired beer that really really sucked. If they want to get into the market, serving crap beer at Canfest ain’t the way to go. No redeeming qualities here. One of the worst craft beers of 2014 so far.

Average, but tasty pale ale from Sockeye. Hazy orange amber with medium creamy head. Aroma is very faint hops, taste has sharp hops bite with a metallic finish.

12oz can picked up tonight and poured into my Cigar City Teku... 2 finger foamy off white head.... great retention and lacing atop a fairly hazy orange brew. Aroma is nice mix of citrus/floral hoppiness with toasty caramel malts... good dose of ale fruitiness. Flavor mirrors the aroma with a significant amount of toasted bready notes and touches of sweetness... not overly hoppy at all.. just nicely balanaced. The body is thicker than I remember at the brewpub .... maybe because I let this warm up quite a bit... nice earthy/citrusy finish. Nothing about this beer is Earth shattering, but it still is very solid. Cheers to Josh and the boys at Sockeye.

On tap, pours a slightly cloudy yellow gold, nice head and lots of lacing. Nose is a bit malty, a bit doughy, some hop and dry grass. Crisp taste, a good mix of malt and hop and pine straw, clean finish. solid beer.
