Caramel and honeyed malts are prominent in the lightly grainy nose along with floral and citrus hop notes. Clear, deep, orange-gold body is topped by a light, fine bubbled white head that recedes to the slightest cover with some scant lacing. Flavour follows the nose. Moderate bitterness offsets caramel malts with primarlily floral and lightly spicy hop flavours. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fits well into the Fernie portfolio at the higher end of the hop spectrum. Snifter. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at the BCLS at Hellsgate in June 2012.

355ml can. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, biscuit, peach, apricot and light citrus. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, biscuit, grapefruit, tangerine and tropical fruit with a dry, bitter, mild hop resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Pretty solid.

tap - This copper colored beer has an off-white head that laces heavily. The mild aroma is hoppy with some resin notes. The flavor has good bitterness with resin and a touch of citrus. Its medium bodied and a lingering bitter finish. Good.

Slightly cloudy light orange, good foam. Aroma is subdued (maybe the foam?) Whats there is piney hops. Taste is hop juice, pine, resin. Little tiny bit of malt. Bitter. Okay.

Aroma is a little bit of pine needles and grass. Taste is moderately hoppy but without a tonne of character.

JoeZasada (315) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2016
Bomber Bottle. Pours a light-medium reddish amber with a thin white head. Very mild spruce like aroma. Medium-low carbonation. Taste is bitter; bittering hops mainly, notes of spruce and grass. Warms to a mild malt slightly sweet taste. Finish is bitter, grass like, some spruce. Would benefit more with more aromatic and flavouring hops. A very basic IPA. Not bad.

Copper pour from the can with a small white head. Nose of caramel malt with a some pine and grass. Flavor is much the same with a solid malt backbone, light hop bitterness.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Can in B.C.: Underwhelming IPA with some unfortunate flavors. It definitely has a malt-forward / yeasty, British-style slant; but even if it were touted as an English-style IPA, it wouldnt be a good interpretation. Hops are muted, herbal, earthy and musty. Malts are muddled and clunky. Apple-like fruitiness surfaces here and there. Vegetal bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Appearance was decent (color, clarity, head and lace). Mouthfeel was a bit cloying, but not bothersome. Definitely not my cup of beer.
