Pours a clear golden colour with sizable white head that dissipates to a small white covering that laces the glass quite nicely. Aromas are pine, citrus, sweet malt. Flavors are grapefruit, pine, medium bitterness, bit of malty sweetness. Overall a very smooth flavorful beer.

Pours a rich orange amber color with a frothy two finger white foam. The nose is pretty dull lots of mottled malts, touch of cardboard, citrus and grass. The palate shows a bit more hop presence and the mouthfeel is nice and full with flavors that match the nose. Nice bitterness that really cleans up the finish. Not a bad beer but not worth the price tag that the long journey to the states requires.

Had on tap - guessing this is what I had. Bubbly head. Fruity (curranty, slightly earthy) aroma and amber colour. Soft body, lots of bitterness, rich citrusy hop character with light caramelly malts.

Kind of a play-off between the dank/grassy and the citrus/floral. Unfortunately it was a bit of a one-sided match, with the dank easily over-powering the more delicate citrus, although the citrus fought well. Maybe it was designed that way, but if you’re going to tempt me with such alluring aromas, I’d like to taste them before they are bludgeoned into the forest floor.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2013 While I prefer the kick of the American hopped version, both are excellent examples of the breed.

Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Cloudy orange-amber color, with medium head. Very nice aroma of fruity hops initially, with malt grains and other cereals, and even some honey later. Dry mouthfeel; the flavor is dominated by the cereals, of good quality, and some toffee; strong hopping, that provides some soft resins and not much fruitiness; the final is long.
Quite good indeed.

Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a white top that leav s some lace. Aroma is a big burst of citrus, pine needles & grapefruit. Taste is much of the same with a present but very smooth bitterness that balances very well with the malts.
