Tap. Pours hazy pale golden, medium white head, creamy, decent lacing. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, kiwi(!), lemon zest. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter. Light body, creamy mouthfeel. Good showcase for not my favorite solo hop.

(En fût à la brasserie): Fantastique présence d’agrumes, très gazonné également avec une saine présence protéinée. La finale est sans contredit sèche et tenace. Délicieux.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy, pale golden yellow color with a two finger frothy, pillowy white head. Excellent retention, only slowly settling into a thick cap and lasting ring. Streaks and chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Floral grassy hop aroma with straw, dank buds and pine needle along with strong citrus/tropical fruit notes and pale malt. Lots of grapefruit, pineapple and orange peel followed by biscuit and crackery malt. Pretty dank/resinous.
Fuller bodied than expected with a slightly creamy texture. Crisp hop bite with dry, sticky bitterness up front lingering over the sweet fruit notes and pale malt backbone into a dry finish. Grassy with pine needle and dank buds countered by bread biscuit and a dry crackery character. Citrus/tropical fruit presence isn’t as strong as in the nose. Just faintly there adding subtle sweetness. Still, this beer is light, well balanced and easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light orange-yellow with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is very citrusy with a lot of grapefruit, orange, lemon, also has a little pine, and some light sweet malts. Taste is of citrus peel (lemon, orange, and grapefruit), some pine, tropical fruits, and some sweet malts. Has a medium body with a slighty creamy and slighty watery mouthfeel and a dry, moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall, a tasty single hop IPA that shows off the Cascade hop nicely.
