Pours a clear copper, and a huge creamy white head. Aroma notes include beautiful notes of citrus, caramel, toffee, and chewy malts. Tasting notes include rich caramels, toffee, citrus, and a delicate pine resin bitter finish. I always looked passed this beer, and now I wish I hadn’t! I think I might have a new go to beer!

Tall can. Pours clear amber with white head. Nose is citrus, spicy, floral, earth. Flavour is same with really nice malt balance. This is probably the surprise beer of my Ontario trip, wasn’t expecting much but everything came together really well. If I still lived here it would be a favourite.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light citrus hoppy notes with some light caramelized malt notes. Taste is also dominated by citrus hoppy notes with some well-balanced dry Noble hops backed with a solid caramelized malt profile with limited residual sugar. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. I must admit I didn’t have high expectation but was pleasantly surprised by this mix of West Coast and Noble hops.

Can. Pours clear amber with a tawny rocky head with sticky clumping lace. Nose of pine forest hop, wood, spice, and brown sugar. Flavour is fairly acidic and carries burnt notes. Reminiscent of a pumpkin ale. Grass and pine florals are clean. Not a lot of depth. Good balance, looks and smells very nice. Finish is very very plain.
