Bottle from Downtown Spirits, Seattlemcberko (18977) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
Beautiful amber color, bright and clean, with medium sized compact head. Mild aroma of resiny hops and caramelly malt. Good body strength; the flavor is essentially based o malt and caramel, with a touch of cereals; it’s lean, with just a bit of sweetness, so it doesn’t get cloying; the hops are not very bright, but they still carry a good degree of bitterness and some hop resins; bitter orange peel in the final.
Not vibrant, but a solid brew.
On tap at Chuck’s 85th St. Market, pours a hazy copper orange with a small beige head. Aroma of rich resinous hops, tropical fruitiness and a big caramel malt backbone. Flavour is similar, with loads of fruity, resinous hops and a whopping caramel malt backbone. Well-balanced, with a big malt backing to go with the high hops. Great stuff, but a tad sweet due to the big malt backbone. Oakes (18851) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2014 re-rate at the brewery. Amber, full head. Aroma is full and fruity with orange and melon. Sweet up front, orangey, fruity character. Sweetish finish with a bit of fruity deliciousness.

Bottles at the hotel room in San Diego. Clear golden beer with a rich offwhite head. Hoppy grassy flavor, caramel, peach, cream notes, some pine. A bit too malty for me. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 2, 2014
On tap @ Slater’s 50/50 Anaheim. Light amber/dark orange pour with white foam. Kind of a sticky caramel aroma to this. Lots of pine and resin, sort of herbal as well. There’s some orange zest and pith, too. Flavor is fairly bitter and resinous. Very pine forward. Sticky brown sugar and caramel sweetness. Maybe a bit of booze. Not my favorite.
