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!

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

Translucent gold with many bubbles and a mid sized white head. Wonderfully fragrant aroma containing notes of malt, caramel, mango, pineapple, citrus, and marshmallows. Mid bodied and slightly creamy. Tropical fruit, caramel, and citrus are supplemented with a vigorous bitter finish. Fantastic.

341 ml bottle. Pours a clear, pale golden colour with a medium, frothy, off-white head that laces. Hoppy, citrus aroma with grass. Sweet flavour of citrus fruit, malt and pine with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

ENG: 355ml can from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku. Light-golden to straw color, big, tan head and some lacing. Floral aromas with citrus notes. A bit skunky. Tastes fruity, floral, grassy, citrusy, with huge piney hoppy bitter. Bitter, piney, tarty aftertaste. Medium carbonation and low to medium body. Overall very drinkable, refreshing, hoppy IPA.

PL: Puszka 355ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Barwa jasno-złocista, nieco słomkowa, ogromna, jasna piana i nieco lejsingu. Aromaty kwiatowe, cytrusowe. Nieco skunksowe. W smaku owocowe, kwiatowe, trawiaste, cytrusowe, z ogromną sosnowo-chmielową goryczką. W posmaku goryczka, sosna, nieco cierpkie. Średnie nasycenie, niskie do średniego odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując bardzo pijalna, orzeźwiająca, mocno chmielowa IPA.

I thought this was a really nice IPA. Pours a Nice peach colour. Nice dank aromas. Notes of mango and papaya as well. Flavours are juicy and fruity before settling into a nice lasting bitterness that tastes very much like grapefruit. Very good.
