This locally handcrafted ale is unfiltered and unpasteurized to enhance its character It is brewed with the finest Canadian Barley, hops, pure water and our signature yeast. Because this beer is naturally carbonated, it may have a light dusting of yeast at the bottom. Pour it slowly to leave the yeast in the bottle, or pour it in, it tastes great!

I tried this beer on December 9, 2011 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a weak clouded lemon yellow colour with a thin white head head which disappeared quickly. The aroma was grains and citrus hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was weak grainy malt and weak citrus hops. Just an ’ok’ beer.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
"Hazy yellowy amber with tall fluffy cap. Aroma is very citrusy, grape fruit, oranges, flowers, more stuff, packed full of caramel malt. Sweet brew with a big bitter finish, heavy citrus, mild soap. Chocolate shows up in the finish, more flowers. Man i can drink this fast, goes back easy. Bitter lingers but not that long. Good completely average brew."

phildorsey (161) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2011
355ML can. Pours blond, fizzy and frothy. Tons of hoppy greatness in a tiney little green can. Hints of citrus, resin and earthy aromas dominate the glass. The taste is powerful and bitter; but refreshing and long lasting. overall; it’s a wonderful tasting beer in a tine little green beer.

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 25, 2011
Pours pale amber, with a thick rocky white head, persistent and with very nice lacing. Nose is very subdued; sweet malt, mild citrus hops, well-balanced, and just hoppy enough to be true to style, just really nothing that stands out in any crowd.

341ml brown bottle. Clear golden pour with a full white head, frothy and creamy. Generous sticky lacing. Cascade-like nose, citrusy, a little spiciness and resin with a light malt presence. Flavour has firm background malt but big hop flavours, slight peach, citrus, resin, pine. Satisfying bitterness, long grapefruity aftertaste. Average body and carboantion. Quenching and sessionable IPA.

Great IPA. the pour is of a hazy yellow with orange highlights. A finger of off-white head that leaves nice lacing rings. The nose is floral with a prominent floral hop and grapefruit notes with light malts and slight resinous hop presence. In the middle, a sweet caramel malt with medium grapefruit and nice floral notes. The finish is sweet and hoppy with a fantastic bitter hop and dry prolonged hop finish. This is a great Ipa overall.

Found this in can in a little cafe in downtown Victoria. Drank with a sandwich on a glorious sunny afternoon and it hit the bill for such a day quite nicely.

How an IPA is actually meant to be. Take not other BC breweries. Definitely worth a try.
