Looks to be naturally carbonated - when did they make that switch? Look is nothing special. Confusing taste. Very odd malt here. Worth reading the (self abusive) description to make sense of it. Okay, so 4 grains went into the malt. I love this Brewer so I’m going to float them some points for going so far outside the norm. If you crack this open expecting an IPA, well, that is a WTF moment then. For a beer that those dudes dreamed up to be out-there, it is a success. As a beer in the glass, Meh.

Pours a clear amber color with thin dissipating head. Distinct floral aroma. Hoppy biting flavor. Goes down smooth. Great beer!

12 ounce bottles. Pours a hazy, chunky, golden with a one inch white head. Taste is of hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, malt and yeast. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a dry finish. Easy to drink and quite pleasant.

Okay, I like this beer quite a bit, but I think this is w/o question the wittiest (and longest) description of a beer I have seen yet on this site, so I gave it an extra couple of points for crafty self-deprecation of writing style........ "Whatever"

Very nicely balanced IPA. Very smooth and enjoyable. Strong pine and hop characteristics with a nice malt finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 5/14/13 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Tops. Pours clear orange bronze with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to spotty lace. The nose is a classic, very nice combo of resin hops and caramel malt. The flavor is the same, very balanced, with some nice balance. The body is medium and somewhat sticky with fairly lively carbonation and a long resinous bitter hoos finish,

355 mL bottle. An IPA that is leaning dangerously into ASA territory. But that’s okay; I love ASA.

12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet - enjoyed in a Cantillon glass whilst watching game 6 of Leafs v. Bruins (so sucks might apply nicely). Hazy gold, large white lasting head. Hops. Hopz. HOPZ!!!! Average body, light astringency, catty APA type finish - bloody nice. These guys don’t get enough love.
