If this is a candle then it’s one lit from a burning pine bough because there’s a ton of pine on the nose and the tongue. Some orange and tropical fruit and more resiny hops, along with a solid caramel malt backbone, make this a really well-balanced beer. Nice.

Oakes (13270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Hazy light amber, huge weed aroma, like drinking in a grow-op. With a litterbox. A bit thin and a bit chewy at the same time. Hops are sweeter and more lemon candy. But decent ipa, tastes light and moreish. Columbus & Citra.

HKdIPA (403) - HONG KONG - JAN 3, 2015
Draught at Bellwoods Brewery in Toronto. Deep orange amber pour. Minimal head. Aroma is biscuit, orange, fruity hops. Taste is more explosive - big tropical fruit flavor with heavy dose of malts too. Crisp bitter finish. Good, if heavy, IPA. Would get again.

CacheManyHose (351) - HONG KONG - JAN 3, 2015
At Bellwoods Brewery in Toronto. Very cloudy orange-amber with very little white head, some sticky legs. Smells of apricot, peach, lime, light spice and malt and floral hop. Tastes peppery, lightly malty, deeply bitter bone dry finish. Body is fizzy, bitter, slick.

Medium Amber golden color. Hint of rye and citrus in the nose. The mouth is moderately hoppy with nice rye character over ctirus character. Modest bitter finish with lingering rye.
