3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Spinnakers.
Hop perfume on a hazy amber body.
Medium light body, dry base, lightly resiny pine and grassy hop. High on IBUs but fresh, only slightly oily in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at the brewpub Victoria. Caramel, herbal and grassy hops, malty, mild to moderate bitterness, and a bit fruity. Mediocre. I would not have guessed this as a pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Spinnakers. Light amber pour with a white head. Floral hops and some super herbal aromas, too. Quite grassy. A bit heavy on the caramel and candied fruit, too. Flavor is a little bit better off. Some moderate sweetness of caramel and citrus. Nice bitterness of herbs, a decent floral quality, and some grass. Kind of "meh".

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the bomber. Pours cloudy amber orange. Smaller head with some lacing. Smell is malty, caramel and a kind if rye ale smell. Taste is malt forward, caramel, toffee. The middle is a strange dead zone of watery and lack of flavour beer. Finish is a bitter, dry hop, not really characteristic of a Northwest IPA that can be more citrus and balanced. Just OK.

Draught @ Vancouver Craft Beer Week Festival 2014, Vancouver, BC
Feels more like an English Pale Ale than an APA. Quite malty, crisp and earthy with some sweet toffee and fudge notes. Not very balanced.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2014 L’arôme de malt avec un peu de houblon floral. Le goût est légèrement sucré de malt, un peu médicinal, avec un peu de houblon très amer et floral. Carbonatation moyenne.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
650mL bottle, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out metallic notes, some crackery malt, and some mild hops. Flavour brings out some weird chemically hops, some detergent, and some crackery malt. The chemical notes really destroy this. Not sure if this is the desired flavour profile, but this isn’t very drinkable. Not good.

Probably the best I tried at the brewpub today. Some pine and citrus hops. Pours clear orange with some lacing. No head. Light bitterness with a notch of sourness. On tap.

On tap at the Victoria brewpub. This one was the winner of the evening with lots of delicious west coast hop characteristics. A fine northwest style ale with lots of resiny hops.
