Refrigerated can from JoePeesie poured into a shaker. I think I shook the can because I made a mess on the counter. Pours beautiful light orange with big bright white head that dissapates quickly. Some lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, and very light citrus aroma. Taste is citrus and light bitter finish. Very easy to drink, very refreshing, if this had a bit more taste it would go from good to great, but still a good outdoor summer time drink.

Rating is for the Citra hopped version, how is this aliased? This is vastly better than the original version! Pours clear honey gold, thin white head, solid lacing. Nose is spicy juicy floral hops; apricots, clean malt, ginger. Flavours of spicy stonefruit, lots of tea and white peach. Great!!

JoePeesie (855) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2012
Pours a golden orange with a fluffy white head that laces nicely. Nose is floral and sweet. Hop profile is nothing special, I had high hops as their IPA is so good and this beer is a bit of a let down.

Can. Appearance is a solid apricot golden color with a good inch of beige head. Mostly grapefruit rind, wheat and caramel in the aroma with a bit of herbal hops. The taste has the caramel and biscuit malt notes upfront leading to orange and ruby red grapefruit citrus flavors. The body is smooth and well-carbonated while the finish is dry and bitter with more citrus pith tanginess in the aftertaste. Pretty good balance between the caramel malt and citrusy hops characteristics.

How is it possible I haven’t rated this yet? Strong malts balance the floral and tangerine hop notes in the aroma. Clear copper coloured body is topped by a decent, fine-bubbled white head that recedes to cover with great lacing. Thick sweet caramel malts are offset by medium bitterness but this definitely a malty pale ale. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Enjoyed on tap at Alibi Room.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2012
Single can purchased from Zyn Liqour in Calgary, AB on 02/05/2012. Colour: Light brown or even dark honey with medium-high foamy head. Nose: Lots and lots and lots of pink grapefruit, small traces of red liquorice. Not much else happening. Taste: Light sweet, medium bitter, medium-light sour. The grapefruit moves right from the nose to the mouth and again dominates. Clearly the Yakima hop influence has produced a one-hit wonder in terms profile but hey....I like grapefruit, don’t you? A touch of roasted malt comes out late in the finish. Very drinkable if not one-dimensional.

12oz can 2/27/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-46° in Shaker-Pours a slightly hazy amber ish body with a huge off white head. Aroma of hops(citrus and pine). Taste of the same with a bit of malt and caramel on the back end. This medium bodied brew is not bad.
