COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you want a beer, then you realize how much crap you need to do before you call it a day. This is it. Nicely dosed with Big, Round Hop Flavors and a Toasty Malt Foundation to satisfy your every need. But it still lets you stay in the game to do what needs to be done. Yup.

Itís a glorious night: -11C, no wind, fat, slow snowflakes. Out on my fave stairwell in the river valley with my bike and beer. At this point Iím totally covered in snow so I should get to this. iPhone light shows that this is a light pale gold brew. Smells delish! Grapefruit, orange/peach split, lime and lemon, caramel is there as a good base. Sweet pine too. Smells really good - candy sweet at times and it makes my mouth water. This is the coldest beer Iíve had in ages - mainly cuz itís been sitting in the glass for half an hour as Iíve just been sitting back enjoy absorbing the beauty and wonder that is the west side Edmonton river valley. The taste is quite good but there is a thinness to this one that make it seem watery. The citrus is light overall in power so I assume that piles on as well to that thought. Pine, peach, rrgf, zip and enough bitterness to appease my tasting lumps. Pretty positive that an animal has broken through the ice on the opposite side of the river. Heading home for my car, a rope and an axe to go for a wander in the dark to see if this is indeed the case.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Thanks to iNBe. Big flavor for a low abv beer. Very pale yellow, the missus thought I was drinking a lager. Big hop aroma and flavor. Slightly unbalanced by the low malt but still works. Serving: Bottle

Bottle. A pale straw pour with a skim of a beige head. A very pleasing aroma of Mandarin oranges, lemonade, tropical fruits, peaches, zesty citrus rinds, Sour Patch Kids, some grapefruits, and hints of pine. Thin to medium-bodied and crisp on the way down. A semi-sweet cereal graininess upfront taste-wise. Some biscuity qualities in the middle. The finish is grassy with plenty of tart peaches and tropical citrus fruits. Herbal hints here and there. VERY sessionable.

16oz draft pours an orange/ amber with a nice white head. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, pine. Medium bodied, excellent beer

Bottle. Very aromatic - apricots, floral, mint. Light bodied. Tropical fruit and stone fruit, herbal, grassy hops. Thin but satisfying palate. Bitter finish. Lots of flavor for 4.65%. Not quite an IPA, but a magnificent hoppy flavorful session ale.

cmonster (997) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottled. Pours clear pale orange with little head. Bright aroma of citrus and grassy hops and honey-vanilla-cereal malt. Medium bitter flavor. Light body and thin texture, crisp, bitter-astringent finish. Outside of style for sure.

I was sort of excited for this because I knew it was fresh with a julian date of 234 meaning it was bottled on 8/21. That was nine days ago! Bright yellow, looks more like a lager or a very, very pale ale than an IPA. Good head, sticky lacing up the sides of the glass. Smell is super hoppy, mostly fuzzy peaches. Taste is also quite hoppy yet fleeting and touched by a bit of grainy malt. I donít want to say this is watery but it is very thin. Great for drinking during the day, getting your hop fix and not getting knocked out. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-31-2012 02:11:53

Pours gold into a shaker. White head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet tropical fruit and resin aromas. Dry with sweet caramel, bread and and papaya upfront turning to resin and grapefruit in the lasting finish.

Golden colour. Aroma is very hoppy (green, piney). Has a sharp citric edge making it a good thirst quencher. Shame that it was too gassy served from the tap.

Crisp, very light golden coloured body with a thin, soapy white head and a few bubbles rising up against a pale yellow colour. Aroma of pungent light and grassy hops with some hay, yeast, resin and a bit more citrus notes coming through - but all hops, for sure. Light-bodied; Very mild malts coming through, but a good grassy hop note and a light texture with some herbal, fragrant and perfumey hop flavours. Aftertaste is super light with a bit of yeast, some minor herbs, but mostly very minor, grassy hops coming through with no backbone at all of malt. Overall, pretty disappointed with this after seeing good scores and a very nice smell. Good to see a different take on an IPA, but this hasnít got a malt backbone at all to stand up to the hops, which fade away after a few seconds - tastes like a bit more hoppy anchor steam. I sampled this twelve ounce, stubby Lagy bottle, purchased from Giant Food in Falls Church (Baileyís Crossroads), Virginia on 11-October-2012 for US$1.67 sampled at home in Washington on 19-November-2012.
