An American-style pale ale. Tons of Cascade hops give it assertive bitterness, with great aroma and fresh hop flavor.

Tap. Dark golden with thin white head. Smells a tad rubbery and like rye. Flavor rubbery, grainy, then sweet and almost dry. Light dry finish, graininess persists.

I was excited to see this one served on cask. It says unfiltered, but it was pretty clear looking with a nice amber red colour. The head was thin but dense. Smooth and creamy true to cask. I think it was served a tad bit warm though. I see this as more of a pale ale than anything else. Very upfront with a nice hop bill. I did feel ti was a tad bit too fruity for me, however. Iím not sure if that was the intent. It does sounds like this is a bit mor mundane from the cask than it is on draft.

This beer poured a copper gold color and formed an off white bubbly head that left some trace lace as it subsided. It had an aroma of hops and more hops. The flavor was of hops with a touch of caramel to offset the bitterness in the finish. A very good beer and probably my friend's and I favorite when we were there.

Canít get much from this one on the nose. A hint of citrus there. Nice and fresh at least. Bitter flavor on the palate but not too much in the way of a finish. Light bodied. No head that I could see and no lacing of the glass. Donít run to get this one.

Definitely hoppy, but not too hoppy. Easy to drink, but nothing to make it stand out.

Murky, deeper golden. A shorter creamy head, but a great retention on it. A sweeter aroma than I may have expected. Suggests a decent balance of malts. Some citrus aromas. As the scent suggested, a little sweeter, with the hops coming through later in the body, just before the finish. Citrus peel, bitter herb hops. A decent ale, perhaps not incredible. A bit on the flatter side, but that could have just been how it was served that evening. Has a bit of a semi-dry finish. Not bad, not great. Easy enough to drink, and not a bad brew overall, but maybe not so intriguing that I’d make it a regular indulgence.
