Bottle. The pour was a murky medium burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that lasted a little while, reducing to a few small puddles with a medium collar and had fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted grain malt, pine and citrus hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange and grapefruit).
The taste was mildly sweet with a hint of caramel throughout and then had a hoppy grapefruit peel bitterness with a mild orange sweetness towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a mildly harsh piney bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body and dry in texture with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall this was a bitter-sweet IPA with an awesome drinkability, which ultimately leaves you wanting more...

Rating #1623 - #CBC2015 Beer 8 - Welcome Reception - Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, grapefruit, citrusy, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry piney bitterness and caramel malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

16 oz can- Pours slightly hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma is piney, citrus, dank and resinous, fresh marijuana. The taste is very resinous, piney, citrus, tobacco, grassy. Body is medium and carbonation is medium high. Really tasty stuff, i know i’ve had beers from this brewery before, but this one really stands out, might have to look out for more from them.

Very slight hop scents, with maybe a tiny hint of citrus. Sort of a dark golden, a little bit of cloudiness. The flavor has very strong malt characteristics, with an after taste of some hops. Not a hoppy IPA at all
