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!

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.

Had the opportunity to drink this stuff while on holiday in B.C. My favourite of the trip, I even brought a bottle home from my final six-pack for my fellow beer enthusiast Mal to try, and he was suitabily impressed. I love this style, and I’m glad we’re starting to get stuck in in England. If you like Summer Wine Diablo and Thornbridge Jaipur, you’ll like this.

From a Bottle - this one hit the spot. Perfect mix of bitter hoppy taste and flavor. Get One!
