4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy amber color with powerful activity. Creamy beige 2 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with strong legs.
Aromas and flavors of pine, fruits, caramel, citrus, herbal spices. Pleasant piney nose. Strong sharp taste of fruity orange, lemon, grapes and berries with a nice touch of caramel sweetness resulting a well balanced IPA. Slightly grassy and bready.
Slick medium body with moderate carbonation. Strong and long finish ending with a piney and powerful sour herbal hoppy tongue coat but not too acidic and still pleasant.
Overall a very good craft with harsh sourness while still delicious, great freshness and a well rounded complex and rich flavors.

Bottle from a six packed up with supper ingredients at FarmBoy. Poured into a small Stella Artois glass. (Really need to get a better collection of glassware). Slightly cloudy, medium amber, low head. Lively carbonation, initial hit of marijuana on the palate resides to a slight carmel, very pleasant medium floral hoppiness, which lingers with a very pleasant bitter aftertaste. Bright carbonation. Freaking love this one!

355ml bottle in a shaker glass. Pours dark amber with an off white foamy head. Strong citrus hoppy aroma. Has a bitter taste with a lot of hops and citrus accents, that leaves a dry aftertaste in your mouth and an oily residue in your glass.

Can shared. Marijuana on the nose with some hay, light funk and pine notes. Light tropical fruit and caramel comes through as it warms. Well-balanced with a slight dry, mineral-like finish. Really nice.

Can. Nice. Lots of skunky hops, touch of cheese, big boozy aroma. Good stuff. Touch of caramel. Was a bit blasted at this stage.

Taster at the brewpub after the Toronto Marathon 10/18. Pours dark orange. Up front lots of great hop notes. Some nice malt backing, and the bitterness lasts. Medium in the mouth with lively carbonation. Wish this had wider release.
