Had a bottle at a pub in Calgary's Kensington area. Pours a yellow tree sap amber shade with a considerable amount of off-white, almost light tan foam. Cascade is the primary or perhaps only hop used here and the aroma certainly features that classic currant/fruity "twang", along with sweet malts. Although the aroma is unassuming and perhaps underwhelming, the palate is complex, rich, and assertive without being overpowering. Right off one gets some sour green apple, unripe stone fruit and a little pine resin, no tropical or obvious citrus qualities. There is a little citrus but its subtle and nonspecific. Malts are wonderfully complex, some dark bread crust, burnt caramel, and dark fruit/molasses notes, the malts are tangy and juicy and this brew displays some English ale character (even though this is billed as an American IPA ... The hops are indeed American but the malt character tastes English to me ... Maybe not quite as nuanced but damn close). Is that a hint of diacetyl? Finish is quite dry and bitter, tasting of spruce sap. Menthol aftertaste veers a bit into coarse territory but the malt layers endeavor to keep things balanced. I am going to go ahead and say that Mill St. has a winner here. Nice sessionable IPA that melds Old and New World features.

A - Reddish amber with 1.5 fingers of fluffy, short-lived head. Many small fast-moving bubbles.
S - Toffee, sweet citrus fruit.
T - Steady grapefruit bitterness, citrus, hints of caramel, strong melanoidins. Highly attenuated.
M - Aggressively carbonated and slightly thin.
O - Dry, drinkable N.A. style Pale Ale. One of many good options in Ontario, one I will return to from time to time.

This is a beer I keep coming back to. Great flavour profile, and I think I actually like it better from the tap, but still very good out of the bottle.
Has a mild bitterness, with lots of malty flavours that come through. Caramel notes very apparent, and a nice finish.

Had on tap at the brew pub.
Copper tinged gold colour, with off-white head. Bit of lace, reasonably dense. Decent.
Coppery on the nose as well. Mild citric hint with plenty of rich malt , and a touch of vanilla. Sweet, mildly tangy. Pretty nice.
Taste is quite malty. Caramel, toffee and a touch of roast blending well with a resinous hop that has a touch of citric character. Bit spicy in the back. All good, but then on the back, there's an unfortunate bread yeast note that shouldn't be there. Sort of a by-product, doesn't detract from drinking overall but it's a shame it's there.
A bit fizzy midway, not much body.
Not a bad English pale with good help from the US hops.
