355 ml can from Fernie’s twelve-pack sampler, served in a dual-level flute glass. Pours a handsomely clear, bright orange-tinged amber, lightly carbonated, with a bone-white meringue head and bubbly lace islands. Nose is primarily fresh, citrusy hops; grapefruit, lime, and lemon in abundance. The flavor pulls back just a little, so the citrus is well-presented without being jarring or prickly-piney, and an additional bit of sweetness rounds the edges off the sour snap very nicely. Body is thin, but the finish is clean and lightly dry. One of my favorite pale ales to date - very well-made (here in Canada!) and eminently drinkable and enjoyable. I have yet to encounter a dud brew from Fernie, and I hope their great track record remains solid. Stevo1298 (19) - Taber, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Another nice IPA, Not to bitter. Easy to drink. Nice to have a fairly local brewer doing some good stuff! stuckinprague (43) - - SEP 27, 2012
Aroma is doughy, with citrus hops maybe a hint of pine. Taste is rich amber and caramel malt rounded with grapefruit hops. There’s a bit of orange peel in there, a touch of resin or pine. Nice bitterness to end, hits the tip of the tongue nice. medium bodied. I really like this beer. It is very classic for a IPA, nothing special but still very good. Yum.

Bottle. Clear golden pour with small white head. Nice floral aroma. Balanced bitterness. Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2012
Single bottle purchased from Willow Park Wine & Spirits in Calgary, AB on 06/22/2012. Colour: Light yellow with light orange and low white head. Nose: Hops are wrapped in a malt blanket of cooked fruit, bbq sauce, and whisp of oak smoke. Taste: Medium sweet, medium bitter, medium sour. The 4 types of malt are quite present, as there is a lead player of caramel that mixes with the hops - but slightly too much which subdues the fine quench of a good hop smattering. A dry fruity finish which eventually leads to some bitterness. Original in its own sense, of which I appreciate.

Aroma is citrus and pine hops. Smells sweet.

Aftertaste is sweet hop juice. Much like hop stoopid Very tastey and very easy to drink. Bravo.
Lots of creaminess. wintyguy (69) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2015 Rating #899 - January 10, 2014 - Bottle from Coop. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, grapefruit, citrusy, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious. aumax1 (303) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
pinte de blonde prise au bar. arome de houblon cascade et de miel au gout petite amertume mais bien équilibré avec des notes de miel Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours a clear orangish copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine, grapefruit and sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, pine, citrus, caramel and sweet pale malts... Hops and malts are in great balance and there?s no astringency on the finish. Great well balanced ipa.
