COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

3 finger head, fades to 1 and leaves a little laceing. Looks kinda like a lager more then an IPA. Smell is pine, citrus, and mabye a little creamy. Taste pine, citrus, bitterness & a little creamy. Mostly it’s bitter with the hops and I can taste the resin from the hops as well. Cheer’s!

Ontbeertaster (2337) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle, pretty light aroma, think we may have had a stale bottle, it poured light, aroma of citrus and the flavour was a bit of grapefruit not too much bitterness, but a nice finish, overall not bad.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear light copper body with a small fizzy white head that left a bit of lace. The nose is bright citrusy hops with a light caramel malt base. The flavor has a nice balance between the citrusy hop flavor and the moderate bitterness level. A slight bit of caramel sweetness at it’s base. Lighter bodied for the style with fine fizzy carbonation. A pretty basic IPA, not very overwhelming on the bitterness making it fairly easy drinking.
