A golden beer with a burst of citrusy hop flavor paired with a solid malt backbone. Aromas of pine and citrus are prevalent due to dry-hopping with Cascade and Amarillo hops. This IPA leaves a pleasant bitterness lingering on the palate from the generous kettle additions of Galena hops.

Golden amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity hops, a little dankness and spiciness to it. Taste is fruity hops with a solid backbone to it. Rather tasty! Nice lacing. A beer worth repeating.

16 oz. can. Hazed orange pour with a small dish soapy head. Whispy lacing. Pine and citrusy aroma with some generic caramel malt notes. Flavor is fruity with medium bitterness. Caramel malt backing. Lively carbonation with medium bitterness. Finishes with lingering bitterness. Pretty nice.

Cloudy light copper color with a pinky-sized white head. Aroma is malty, some pine. Citrus and pine hops that are dominated by, as they describe it, a SERIOUS malt backbone. The malt is a bit too overwhelming, and distracts from the hops with the imbalance. ABV is either obvious to me or the malt sweetness is making me think I detect it. It’s a decent IPA, but not one I care to retry after this 4 pack of 16 oz cans is gone.

Draft. From notes. Tropical fruits and citrus dominate. Some oddly sweet malt balances it out. Good brew.

This 16 oz can came to me from the glories of beer trading. It poured a cloudy amber-orange with a foamy beige head and excellent lacing. Nose is citrus and pine hops. Medium plus body and a resinous mouth feel. The flavor shows the pine pine and citrus that was in the aroma but I get some tropical fruit. The finish is flavorful and biter. Really good beer;

Pint at Shakers in Ottawa. A thin off white sits on a beer that is golden with a bit of copper hue. Light lacing. This begins with a big citrus and tropical fruit line. Pineapples. Caramel grows and leads by the finish. Nice beer.
