Can = pale straw color with a 1 finger rocky cap. West coast aroma; citrus-pine-fruity. Flavor is fruity-light bitterness with a sweet malt presence, finishes fast and lightly bitter. Weak, thin, sweet and uneventful - add insult to injury it come in a small portion can - wassamatter, afraid someone might actually catch a buzz?

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 A staple of the Flat Pete build. Never thought too much about it as the ISA category is usually pretty weak sauce. This time, however, seems better. Sweetness, tropics, lemon, orange, faint pine, soft malt aromaz. Solid smells that hang out. Better flavour than I remember as well - I guess that's what happens when you drain hundreds of beers out of the can while hiding in a forest. Very solid bitterness throughout but the flavour is more quiet. The taste is pretty much the aroma. <--- easy! Plenty of fruity sweetness finishes this one off. Each sip was sandwiched between sets of pull ups and planks.

6-pack from LCBO. Here’s a thought. Instead off pretending this is a session ipa, why don’t we all just admit its really just a pale ale deeply under the influence of Sierra Nevada’s. Old school, malt heavy, herbal hops, a tad too sugary, hops are nice & bitter but not very expressive.

355 ml can from The Beer Store. Pours a golden colour with a little suspended haziness and a soapy white head. Aroma is citric, lightly piney hops and a little pale maltiness. Flavour is also citrusy hops with a little pine and some gentle pale malts. Average body. Solid.

355ml can. Pours a hazy pale gold with plenty of sediment floating around and a small, long lasting, white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of pale malt, lemon, tropical fruit and pine. Sweet flavour of tropical fruit, caramel malt, lemon, pine and grass with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Light body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Easy drinking, not bad.
