BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hoyne Brewing Co.
British Columbia, Canada | website

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
And in the beginning, word came forth, “Let there be ale, and let it be the colour of barley in the summer sun, and let it paradoxically both quench and create great thirst.” Who are we to disagree? Sit back, take it easy, enjoy the slow ride.

Smell. Taosty caramel malts and some floral hops with some sweet citrus fruits and a slight metalic smell.

Mouthfeel. Below medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall. Nice west coast pale ale.

This golden beverage had a nice hoppiness to it without it being overly bitter. Was surprised by the crispness and quick finish. A nice easy drinking Pale Ale.

Appearance- Pours a light amber copper with a finger of frothy white head.

Smell- leafy hops, caramalts, dark fruits, toasted grains, hint of orange peel.

Taste- Bready caramalts are predominate followed by toasted grains, and dark fruits. Finishes with a light bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with with light carbonation.

Overall- An easy drinking pale ale. This is very sessionable. The label reminds me of people floating down the Bow river in Calgary.

I agree with the other reviewers in that this could have better though it is a pleasant PA. Considering that Siren's Song PA from Canoe was so great I expected more for Hoyne. Still the hop nose is nice and floral and I did enjoy the smooth finish and nice mouthfeel.

Light amber with a thin white head. Malts, biscuits and yeast in the nose. Light, creamy, buttery notes. Citrus-y hops.

Big, biscuity malts. Creaminess, light butter. Noticeable citrus profile to the hops. Not bad, but almost a bit too hoppy. Good carbonation, decent brew but not the best.
