Bottle from brewery. Lets face it, the stuff Bellwoods is pulling off these days is just incredible. How a simple hop smash pale ale can have so much punch & complexity baffles me. Not my fav of the series by any means, but doubtful any tall cans in my local LCBO can match this. Nice green pellet heaviness meets their rebooted signature yeast meets fresh lemongrass.

Picked up a 500ml bottle at the brewpub. Pours an average rocky and bubbly white head. Good retention. Medium body. Some decent lace. Has a hazy yellowish golden appearance. Lively carbonation. Aromas of floral hops, pine, and a but grassy. Flavours are citrusy, some pine notes. Subtle hints of tropical fruits. Not too much bitterness, quite smooth.

500 ml bottle from Hafis Road bottle shop. Pours a murky dull golden orange with good-sized, lasting off-white head. Aroma is pulpy citrus fruit, dank resin and some green hoppiness. Flavour has lots of green hop character with dank resin and tangerine pulp. Slick mouthfeel. Fairly bitter in the finish. Impressive, though this has a really in your face hop profile.

My Bottom Line:
Green basil, lemongrass and citrus fruit scent this freshest of Pale Ales, as fir needles slowly massage the palate.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the shiny yellow haze.
-Resinous bitterness is not too intense, following up the flavour profile’s moderate intensity nicely.
-Mouthfeel is soft and doughy; a bit plump even (for the style).
-This is a pretty pellet-forward IPA. Hop profile could be softer and less concentrated, imho.

Bottles.

Mild aroma of grass and tropical fruit, same notes in the taste but more subdued than a typical monogamy form BW> Like it, but better stuff from them is available so would not repeat although its a fine beer, if not a little thin.

Tropical fruit and tart citrus aroma. Fruity, citrusy and a bit resiny. Not Bellwoods’ best but tasty.

Faint citrusy aroma. Cloudy straw colour. Earthy, camomile flavour with citrus notes. Medium body with lively carbonation. Really unique and quite interesting.

JoeMcPhee (9519) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
Pale golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is really bright and citrusy. Lemon-lime and a juicy citrusy note as well. There’s a bit of light fruit and a bit of grassiness. Juicy and a little bit fruity. Really lovely and well-integrated beer.
