Draft in tulip. Slightly hazy orange, copper with a small white head. Lots of effervescence. Aroma is very floral and fruity, oranges, apricots, pineapple, papaya?. Very mild bitterness, crispness, very juicy, just a little pine. Damn good.

Draft. Caramel and pine aroma. Flavors are sweet, mostly caramel and honey. Much malt-forward, only a hint of Simcoey pineapple. Average DIPA.

Can from a wicked trade, thanks Justin. Pours a true golden yellow, not see through, but not hazy. Massive fluffy white head, leaving a shit liar of lacing. Nose is sweet, q touch of caramel and hops oh baby hops. Citrus mainly but there’s some sappy pine too. Tastes really sweet, and not as bitter as you would expect. Really enjoyable, not really hot for the abv. I likey.

SG111 (574) - New York, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Canned 07/10/15. Pours golden yellow, fairly light and clear white head. Aroma is lots of citrus and pine. Really intense resin, dank hops, tropical fruits, mango , pineapple, some straw, fairly distinct bready note. Slightly floral. As you drink you can still smell all the resin and dank hops. Flavor is tropical fruits, pine. Just am awesome fresh beer with almost no astringency. Not. Really bitter. Soft mouthfeel, almost creamy. Awesome.

473 mL can. Pours clear and bright, yellow gold with a thick cap of white head that lasts. Nose is big ripe citrus and tropical fruit. Orange, grapefruit, guava, papaya and pineapple. Some mild bready malt character in here as well. What’s striking is the texture and flavor. Smooth and soft all around with a lingering bitterness that isn’t remotely harsh or astringent. Juicy fruit gum sweetness backed by generous hops. Very good, but maybe a bit over hyped?

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear bright yellow color ale with a nice foamy head with great retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of grassy floral notes with light citrusy undertones is just about perfect. Taste is also dominated by super fresh grassy notes with citrusy undertones, very limited bitterness with some tropical fruit notes. Body a light oily texture with average body and good carbonation. A little sweeter then I would have liked but just about perfect overall.

1 pint can Thanks to Owen for the can 6/8/15 bottling date Straw yellow orange color, very clear. Bright white head that falls to a thick collar, leaving thick soapy residue lacing and some spotty lacing. Nose is an array of mango, lemon, grapefruit, and pine. Fresh, vibrant, clean and crisp. Taste is pretty much the same but a little more tropical fruit with lemon, pine and grapefruit. Bitterness lingers well, very slick and oily. Medium bodied, nearly perfect carbonation. Nearly flawless beer. Very excellent stuff.

Pours hazy glowing golden orange with thick white head. Smell is dank hops, juicy tropical fruit, grapefruit, and pine. Taste is piney hops, resin, citrus, mango and grapefruit. Super juicy and complex. Great silky mouthfeel. Light body, medium carb.
