Growler to pint glass. Gentle herb and fruity aroma of of hops. Deep, hazy copper colour with light froth of off-white head. Complex, yet incredibly well balanced. Initial hop blast gives way to a rich malty taste that finishes smooth. Low carbonation, medium-bodied and incredibly satisfying. A Spinnaker’s favourite I find myself returning to time and time again. asheft (3125) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2012

Interesting faintly smoky aroma, though weak, with a little caramel and US hops. Foggy, yellow-bronze with a lasting, dense, tawny foam. Fruity, english yeast finish to the flavour, which has a bit of diacetyl, with the balance slightly on the sweet side and a mix of UK and bitter pine hops which comes off as somewhat complex. Light to medium body, very low carbonation, smooth, and with a lasting, moderate bitterness. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 1, 2012
Clear copper, citrus and wet hop aroma. Bitter with a pine and grapefruit hit. Really sold pale ale! riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Big hoppy nose with citrus, floral, pine, and dank notes. Some caramel and pale malts. Pours amber, nice white head. The flavor is hoppy up front, citrus, pine, dank, light caramel, toffee, toast, and pale malts. Nice hop profile, fruity, flavorful, drinkable. Nice. fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011

Amber color. Wonderful aroma, caramel, toffee and fruity hops, with a light earthy touch. The body is lean, with a good caramel and toffee flavor, the hopping is powerful, with a strong resiny profile. I would have appreciated a beer with a bolder body, but also as is it’s very enjoyable.
Tap @ brewpub. Transparent, slightly dark orange appearance with an ivory head. Citrusy, dank hoppy nose. Slightly low carbonation. Dank, piney, slightly resiny, lightly citrusy flavor. Not bad. pumpmaster (1446) - Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2011
4 ounce sample at the brewpub Taproom at 4 samples for $5.00CAD. Very good. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2011
On tap at the Victoria brewpub. This one was the winner of the evening for both me and MB. A fine northwest style ale with lots of resiny hops.
