Scent of hops, pine, and citrus. Hazy gold colour. Flavour of orange peel, lemon, and hops. Mild bitterness with medium body. Very drinkable! A nice change from the abrasiveness of other IPA’s.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy straw/golden color with a good amount of activity. Creamy frothy white 1 finger head, lasting around 10-15 minutes, with strong legs.
Aromas of fruity tropical fruits, caramel, and a floral bouquet (faint a little). Flavors of zesty citrus including lemon, lime, orange, and with some hints of peach, caramel, roasted grains, and floral/herbal spices. Powerful zesty lemon taste. Well balanced sweetness and sharpness.
Slick full body with prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish, ending with a slightly dry feel of fruity hops, roasted malt, and heavy sour zesty spices, although still ends pretty clean and not lingering.
Overall this is a good craft offering decent flavors that are well balanced, while the lemon is the real star here. Acceptable freshness for the style with a slightly flat feel. A little strong of the spices but still nicely sharp and crispy like drinking a lemonade. Good session IPA in a hot summer day.

50 cl can. Pours a clear yellow with white head that disappates quickly. Aroma of dirty dish cloth. Taste is bitter and citrusy. Palate is fizzy and almost spicy. Overall it is the smell that is putting me off. I will try again and rerate if needed.

Sampled on draught in Ottawa. A hazy, light gold colour with a thin, white head. Hoppy aromas, and a good well-balanced taste with plenty of malt and citrusy hops, with notes of apricot and grapefruit. Excellent mouthfeel for a low ABV beer. Highly drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Visual: Pours clear golden orange with a smallish dissipating head, thin large island retention, just a few slow micro streams.
Nose: apricot tangerine citrusy. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp-citrusy malty
Mid-palate: fizzy-almost creamy, (lvl-2-sweetness), apricot-grapefruity,
Finish: dry lager grainy barley malt, soft bitter hops, thinnish body.
Summary: Approachable malty citrusy flavour, but a tad thin - can’t expect too much for 4.3%er.
