Taste is big, fresh pale malt with touches of pine and hemp. This is a nice and clean pale ale. An above average beer although there are others I prefer in the style. Definitely worth a try.

Draft at Craft Beer Market in Calgary. One of the few nitro-taps I have seen here.
Pours clear orange-brown color with a solid white head. Nitro obviously adds to the foam retention, and full sheets of lace.
Smells has some malt sweetness, and some citrus hops.
Good carbonation level, crisp mouth feel, clean finish.
Overall, a good beer with good level of hops. Could definitely have a couple more.
