An impressive pale ale that is every bit as good as my faves Full Moon, Alpha King and XP. Can't wait to try this on tap. A pretty hoppy pale ale from British Columbia's new comer. Look forward to more beers from these little guys.An impressive pale ale that is every bit as good as my faves Full Moon, Alpha King and XP. Can't wait to try this on tap.

Pours a pale sunset golden color, thin head and a good amount of patchy lace. Nice.

Grainy aroma without much pizazz.

Flavor favors fresh-baked bread and its stale crust a week later. Light flash of honey; pils-ish hops gently envelop the malt, which carry through to the finish. Flavor dies out quickly, as this is pretty dry.

Light to medium body, good balance of small-bubble tingle and a soft smoothness.

Guess I didn't like this one much. Kind of your average English-style ale, despite more up-front hop presence than that. A bit ho-hum though nothing egregiously wrong either. Their saison is much better, bordering on exceptional...

This is the session pale ale from these guys and it is a winner. Nice hoppy fruity nose with a solid almost belgian take on a pale ale. Enough hops to keep it interesting but the balance is the key. There is enough complexity to make one want to slow down but the huge drinkability will make you pour another one

Big time session style Pale Ale- Aromatic citrus hop profile not hindered by any deep malt complexity. First taste is nortwest style hops and subltle honey malt like notes with a mild grapefruit contrast as the pallate is refreshed and invorgorated before the exceptionally clean & crisp finish. Nothing boring here. Just a great beer with nothing to hide.
