This is one of the better Yaletown products in my opinion. Golden orange in colour, hazy, with a decent sized white head. Sweet malt and citrus linger through the air. The flavour is citrusy hops through and through with enough malty sweetness to keep it balanced and refreshing. mcberko (17815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2010
On tap, pours a hazy amber/golden. Hops on the aroma and palate. Fairly standard, but refreshing IPA. beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 10, 2008
Dark orange in colour with small white head. Floral hop aroma. mild hop flavour, thin Short hop flavour. fiulijn (20491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2008
Draught at the brewpub, hand pumpedSkyview (6021) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Clean golden color; persistent head. Nice aroma of grassy hops, light manure. Very good flavor: dry toffee with the very good and aromatic hopping. The only good beer tonight, between Yaletown and Dockside.
On draught at the brewpub in downtown Vancouver (Yaletown sector), Canada. Pours a clear light golden amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring and no lacing. Aroma of sweet grapefruit and citrus zest that over-powers any caramel and/or Munich malt. Taste is sweet grapefruit and bitterness with some powder roasted malt and a touch of herbs. Finish is just as bitter as its flavor. Another typical West Coast caliper IPA to curl my tongue.

At the brewpub downtown. Foomy, very amber colour. C hop aroma, this is hoppy. Great cask with good bitterness. Very creamy mouthfeel and appearance, some lace. BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2007
Dark amber with minimal head. Aroma is grassy hops and some floral notes. Lots of caramel malt flavour but balanced nicely with the floral tasting hops. Finishes slightly dry and bitter. yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2007
Sampled on tap at the brewery.
Ruby and brown colours with a thin tan head. The smell consists of citrus, hops, and fresh pine. The mouth detects pine, some herbs and plenty of hops. Somewhat stale and clingy aftertaste. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2007
Thick, chewy caramel malts are joined by floral and citrus (orange) hops in the nose. Hazy, deep copper coloured body is topped by a frothy, off white/tan head that lasts well and coats the glass. Soapy floral hops join the caramel malt but fairly abrupt bitterness cuts off the flavour before it develops. Citrus is notable in the aftertaste. Medium body with soft bubbled carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub. GRM (4046) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2007
5-ounce glass, draught, savoured on February 5 2007; eye: amber, no effervescence, clear, white head that becomes a ring around the glass, lacing; nose: hops, grapefruit; mouth: surprisingly thin, hops and hops again, appearance of the caramelized malt, long finale in hops where the astringency becomes more present, mildly astringent, medium body, not much carbonated, quite bitter, slightly sweet; overall: a bit disappointing, too flat (end of the keg?)
Verre de 5 onces, en fût, savourée le 5 février 2007; oeil : ambrée, pas d’effervescence, claire, mousse blanche qui s’est transformé en un anneau autour du verre, dentelle; nez : houblon, pamplemousse; bouche : curieusement mince, juste du houblon et encore du houblon, apparition de malt caramélisé, finale longue en houblon où l’astringence devient plus marquée, astringence moyenne, corps moyen, peu carbonatée, assez amère, très légèrement sucrée; en résumé : légèrement déçu, trop plate (fin du fût?)
