Tasting at Jack’s RAH Annexe! Lightly hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Airy palate, light fine carbonation. Nice hops - skunky pine, good hop spice, nice light tropical fruits. Light dry finish. Really nice fresh hops in a light airy palate.

12oz can shared by a friend. Pours cloudy blonde with a nice off-white head and a magnificent tropical fruit and citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a firmly bitter finish. Sticks to the palate.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
500 ml. can sampled @ Pure Apricot Tasting. Thanks! Sampled side-by-side The Crusher / Heady Topper / Rapture / Focal Banger. Heady Topper came out last unanimously. Hazy lemon appearance, creamy white head. Onion nose, dank, very fresh IPA hop funk,… Dank, funk, lemon, light onion, cheese taste, funky fresh onion, lemony,… Insanely super-easy to drink. Easiest to drink of all 4 must be crazy to session, apparently these are hard to get which makes the session aspect of this one seem a bit silly.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can shared by Didier, thanks! Pours. Hazy golden and is topped by a light film that leaves some lacing. Nose is of fruits, sugar and cereals. Taste is really sweet, fruity and moderately bitter. Body was medium-full, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel a little sticky. This is just too heavy for me, I’d never drink a pint of that by myself I think! Overall this was still nice and worthy of a try.

16 oz. can shared by Chris - thanks again, Chris! Pours a hazed pale gold with an eggshell white head that leaves spots of lace and a ring. Notes of florals, citrus peel, soap, pine resin, herbs, and grass. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, resinous mouthfeel. Like Rapture, this one isn’t the most balanced. But I was digging the hop profile in that one better.
