473mL can purchased at the Beer Store poured into Keith's pint glass.

Pours nicely with about an inch of head which dissipates pretty quickly. Lacing is pretty minimal. Sweet aroma, mostly roasted malt. Some creamy mouthfeel, bit of a bitter finish, slight aftertaste. I can see drinking a few of these, but definitely not a dozen, lol. Nice dark golden colour, i would definitely recommend this beer to people. Not harsh, but still flavourful. Better than a lot of macrobrewed stuff out there.

473 ml can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is an orange color with great clarity and bubbles seen coming up through the glass.

Smell: Herbal, spicy, toasty toasted malts, and some pale malts.

Taste: Noble tea like hops, toasted malts, and pale malts.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, light bodied, medium carbonation, and mild hop bitterness.

Overall: A nice mildly hopped pale from Nova Scotia.

473 ml can from LCBO for $2.60 CDN into a pint glass.

Appearance - Aggressive pour yielded head of 3+ fingers of head. Decent retention, but minimal lacing. Clear dark copper color. Some carbonation is visible. Good looking beer.

Smell - Mild hops aromas, piney citrus scents are present but concealed. There is a faint sweetness that is reminiscent of melon.

Taste - Similar to the scent, the hops are of course at the forefront, but again seem restrained. Very mild beer in all.

Mouthfeel - There is a certain element of creaminess and richness, that may be a bit unexpected with this APA, that seems a little out of place and prevents this from being a thirst quencher.

Overall - Good offering that I prefer to the Cascade Hop Ale (Keith's other offering in he Hop Series), but a little to mild for repeated consumption.

Pours a dark gold/light copper colour with a little over a thumbs worth of egg shell white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of caramel, biscuits, vanilla, toffee and yeast. Not much hop presence in the aroma. Tastes a bit hoppier, with grass and spice hops coming through. Still, rather malty for what I'm assuming they are marketing as an IPA. Mouthfeel is mid body and smooth. Overall, a decent offering, but I prefer the cascade hop ale.

Average Pale Ale. Aroma actually has a nice noble hop profile - herbal, a little grassy. Taste goes south a bit though, a little watery mid-palate. Medium body, medium carbonation, but again, gets a little watery on the feel half way through. Looked interesting and I'd never heard of it before so I thought I'd give it a try. Not intrigued to get it again.
