UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 Bottle thanks to Wittales in the local 3.14 swap. Pours a chill hazed golden orange with thin lacy off-white head that sticks nicely. Aroma is big on the resinous citrus and pine of the west coast hops. Taste follows, a hint of malty back end, bittersweet finish. Mild carbonation, balanced and easy to drink, solid west coast IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Darby’s Liquor Store, Vancouver
Hazy golden color.The fruity hops aroma reaches you when the beer is still in the bottle. The mouthfeel is lean and rather dry; the malt flavor has toffee accents; the hopping is resiny, oily, piney, and fruity (with a touch of tropical fruits as well).
Very nice. I would like to drink it fresh from tap.
