on draft at brewery, a lighter piney pale ale. Very light aroma and faint bitterness. LIght body and brief flavor intensity.

On tap at Spinnakers - somewhat fruit like maybe apple juice. Not too dry. Has a grapefruit aftertaste.

Lagerboy (2206) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2016
Bomber. Unclear copper, huge off-white froth settles and lasts. Pukey caramel malt aroma. Taste is lightly singed toasted caramel malt, herbal, earthy, dirty hop, some citrus. Well carbonated, medium bodied, moderately hopped. One of Spinnakers better efforts. LBW (Lagerboys be Wary)

Surprisingly good beer. caramel malt, hint of floral hop, candy and grass that all comes together in a slightly sweet, well balanced malty taste. not a typical pale ale but a good beer. bargain priced here on the island at 10.00 a six pack.

DuffMan (10434) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2015
On tap @ the airport location. Light Amber-kissed gold, generous lacy head. Light caramel grains, greenish hoppy bite, papery finish, thin.

JohnnyJ (5562) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 7, 2015
On draft at the brewpub Victoria. Caramel, herbal and grassy hops, malty, mild to moderate bitterness, and a bit fruity. Mediocre. I would not have guessed this as a pale ale.

3.2
brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 29, 2014
On tap @ Spinnakers. Light amber pour with a white head. Floral hops and some super herbal aromas, too. Quite grassy. A bit heavy on the caramel and candied fruit, too. Flavor is a little bit better off. Some moderate sweetness of caramel and citrus. Nice bitterness of herbs, a decent floral quality, and some grass. Kind of "meh".

3.3
BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2014
The Great BrewDad Victoria Pub Crawl - Interesting beer good flavor and finish. Nice copper color and light white head.

2.9
Alanthebeerguy (213) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
From the bomber. Pours cloudy amber orange. Smaller head with some lacing. Smell is malty, caramel and a kind if rye ale smell. Taste is malt forward, caramel, toffee. The middle is a strange dead zone of watery and lack of flavour beer. Finish is a bitter, dry hop, not really characteristic of a Northwest IPA that can be more citrus and balanced. Just OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
