3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: My cousin Sam
Purchased: Received it on Nov. 4, 2013
Consumed: Nov. 5, 2013
Misc.: Canned on May 27, 2013
Poured a caramel orange hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy white head. Lots of sporadic spiderweb lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention as well.
Smelled a potent whiff of fresh hops up front. Initially reminded me of a Stone Ruination IPA or a Lagunitas IPA. Specifically got citrus hops (grapefruit, tangerine and some lemon), floral hops, buttery caramel malts, wet Cascade hops and resin hops. Much more like an IPA than a pale ale.
Tasted more like a pale ale than an IPA, albeit still bitter. Got buttery caramel malts, lemon grass, resin hops, earthy, grainy, honey wheat and bitter floral hops.
Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, bitter finish.
Not a bad beer and I’m grateful for the opportunity to try it. I’d definitely have it again.

Great hoppy flavor
Very fresh tasting
Tap is the best, but a can will always do.

Can shared by Ryan (Steasy66) at Craft Islington. Pale colour, white head. Nose is lots of passion fruit, grapefruit citrous sour, slight bread/biscuit malt, lots of minerals. Taste is flinty minerally, grapefruit sour and lots of passion fruit.

Can shared at CBC Islington during the Ryan Tasting - big thanks to Ryan for this one! Great balance here. Dry citrus, restrained pale malt sweetness. Super fresh and drinkable. I could easily sink a few of these.

12oz can, Steasy tasting at CBC Islington. Thanks to Ryan. It pours a pale golden color with a small white head. Aroma is all in the way of hops with a light biscuity touch. Taste is well balanced and fruity hoppy. Citrusy and some dough. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, good one.

Bottle cheers to Ryan. Hazy golden pour with a sticky white head. Nose is very big and grassy! Massive pine needles. Taste shows a heap of grass and pine again while a touch of citric rind comes through. A subtle hint of barnyard notes as well which is appealing. Fantastic

On tap at Icehouse. Pours a hazy gold color. Light pine and citrus hop aroma, taste is light, though the finish gets strong and bitter. Palette cleansing qualities, good for good pairing. Definitely complementary to wings! Very decent session beer.

9/29/13. 12oz can thanks to ZMDR1975. A good addition to my quest for more pale ales. Hazed orange pour with a nice khaki head that laces a ton. Dank hop aroma, resiny, pine, a bit of cat pee and rag, hints of doughy pale malts. Nice flavor, bitter, but not too much, fresh hops, green, floral, citrus, more lingering dankness, resin, and rag. Tasty.
