Visual: Pours clear copper brown with a smallish 1cm head, a spotty 1mm layer of retention, clusters of very active streams, sticky lacing.

Nose: toffee malt with light citrus hops (lvl-6)-pungency

Attack: soft smooth & crisp

Mid-palate: peach-citrus hop oils, (lvl-3-sweetness), dry metallic, grainy toffee barley malt

Finish: lengthy hopped soft dry bitterness

Summary: Pretty decent, good a good balance of hop and barley grain profile. A tad too metallic for my tastes and the hops are on the dull side.

Bottle in Seattle. Thanks Andrew. Soapy white head, mine poured yeasty (but Andrews poured clear copper-amber). Coppery, bitter malt. Pretty tasty. Mineral undertones. Lots of stone bittering. Body is much sharper and more bitter than Id expected. Nice.

330 mL bottle poured, courtesy of mcberko. Thanks! Remembering one of the best beers from my Vancouver trip being a Four Winds, this is a fun try. Pours an oily copper color with a thin fizz head. Clean malt fronted flavor, with a near perfect balance of hops. Caramel hints, and a subtle bitterness. Creamy body. Good addition to the style here. Very nice

Kobold (40) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2016
A compact blizzard of foam impossible to navigate through; kilometres of labyrinth and boreal myth. Underneath is a rusted copper core, sunlight inverted into dozing, darkened liquids....... Pine cones salivating rich resin. Lonely mountain firs suddenly fructiferous and bearing all manner of grapefruit, velvet pineapple and drunk, wraith-like flowers puffing pollen. Pepper pixies sprinkle crushed bones of their delicately extinct ancestors. A roughness later emerges, a puzzle of pulverised stones and excavation equipment. The echo of an obliterating bitterness passes through my sinuses while sweet dreams of soft, sticky beatitudes coat the back of my palate. Blessed, sweetened grains and pitted fruits then shrivel into a brief medicinal twang. It is its own beer moment.

UXO (1822) - CANADA - FEB 23, 2016
Appearance: slightly hazy pale amber with one finger of rocky off-white head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Aroma: bright citrus, stone fruit, pale malt, Resiny pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, dry lightly bitter finish. (4/5) The first whiff of the aroma reminded me of nothing so much as lemon Pledge. Not that it shot a solvent edge - it doesnt, not really - but the citrus is surprisingly bright. Hoppy, but well-balanced with pale malt. A quite enjoyable Pale. (15/20)

Lagerboy (2136) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2015
330 ml bottle. Clear orange copper, fading off-white foam. Aroma is forest fruity, floral, c-malt. Fruity caramel malt taste, floral citric hop, some spice, beautifully balanced. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Very clean and flavourful. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

stantheman (1006) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
On tap at Bitter Tasting Room in Vancouver. An orange amber beer with a moderate white head, and a faint malted nose. Over the gums! A very agreeable balance of hop and malt here. Yassir! 3.6.
