Hazy amber with medium off-white head. Aroma is floral and medium sweet. Taste is medium sweet, earthy/floral, fruity (apricot). Finishes nicely bitter (earthy/floral). Medium body. Was told the beer is much more intense (and a much better beer) when the hops are fresh (~September).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Moosejaw. Poured clear lighter amber with a dense, creamy off-white head. The aroma was on the sweet side, with caramel, honey, and lesser fruits present.. nice pine and grassy accents. The flavor found enjoyable juicy pine resin and earthy bitterness over soft caramel and a touch of honey.. tasty stuff! Medium-bodied and a tad sharp from the bitterness on the palate.. just an OK flow.. solid brew overall.

Very pleasant to drink, nice flavour and decent body.
I’d call it an APA, though.
