Can pour. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a patchy inconsistent head. Semi sweet citrus flavors with a hint of grassy hops too. Smooth transition to a decent bitter hop finish. Enjoyed this one. Pretty heavy beer. Good overall.

Bendrixian (1110) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Hazy brew with a orange/amber colour. Hoppy deliciousness pine cone and citrus aroma with a nice pungent grassy hoppy backdrop and sports a slight pepperness. On the palate it is made in a drier hoppy style that showcases the hops, slight sweetness but that only adds a little bit of backbone to this brew. Has a sort of soft mid-palate but that doesn’t’ take away from thisdelicious brew!

Light head much like a golden pilsne r in color with some haze. Citris notes with a light cat urine notes . Massive hops bite that lingers with high resin notes.

Pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head. Nose is caramel and citrus. On the palate is grass, grapefruit, and and caramel. Little carbonation and a water mouth feel, but very drinkable.

Can. Pours a clear copper color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is a little more resiny than I usually find with the IPA family, but pleasant nonetheless; just a hint at some caramel in the end. Taste is quite bitter, but still very drinkable and light. Hides the 9.3% quite well, methinks.

bytemesis (3164) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Can thanks to Brian! Pours crystal clear orange with a medium creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly with good lacing. Aroma is pine, spruce, leaves. Flavo rid light sweet, medium bitter, a bit of grapefruit on top of the pine and spruce. Medium body, a bit harsh.

Pour out of 12 oz can, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of butter, cardboard, hints of slight grass, orange, marmalade, caramel. Taste is a mix of cardboard, grass, orange, caramel, hints of a mix of butter, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.

Can with friends. Yellow appearance with a lasting white head. A bit of cardboard, lemon, and earth in the nose. Moderate sweetness. Pretty high bitterness. A little bit of toast, quite a bit of grapefruit, pine, and chewy malt. Kind of old but not very good anyhow.
