3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a murky yellow-orange with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Good amount of lacing. Aroma of lactose and some light sour fruit first followed by hops -- that's it really. Flavour follows but the hops are a little more prominent, there's a touch of herbal notes and a moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good.
Bottle from the brewpub. Pours a fairly big thick, frothy white head and has a hazy golden appearance. Nice thick dirty lacing. Moderate carbonation. Aromas are floral and citrus, some piney notes and a little bit grassy. Flavours are quite citrusy, grassy and some subtle hints of grapefruit. Also some floral notes. A little bit of spice in the finish, but faint. Somewhat of a tangy finish on the palate. Refreshing and easy going, quite good. fiulijn (21522) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2017
Tasting at Erik'smcberko (20253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2017
Cloudy blond color. Very nice aroma, sweaty and tropical hops aroma. Good body structure, delicate malts with light residual sweetness; nice hops, citrus, but also too yeasty, chalky, with some pithy bitterness in the final.
Good but dirty.
500mL bottle, pours an opaque yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very earthy, with citrus hops, earth and metallic notes. Flavour is very vegetal, with an earthy hop character, yeasty notes and boiled vegetables. Harsh and unbalanced. Not too good. fiery1 (1818) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2017
500ml bottle @ Erik's(CANBIF Fall 2017). Pours a cloudy pale golden copper colour with a small white head. Nose is lightly grapefruit, then mostly an interesting mix of hops and what I assume is the lupulin powder. Flavour is unfortunately overly bitter for my palate, I get nothing but raw hop bitterness.

Hazy, thin head. Has a sort of grapefruit note, with a bit of lupulin powder nose. Bitter, with a bit of malt sweetness. There's a solid fruitiness and I like the balance, but there are brighter and better in this space. Ferris (17755) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2017
Bottle - Green and slightly weedy with wet grass. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Bitter, peel and some tea leaf notes. Bitter long finish. Sammy (13092) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2017
Better than expected. I think they have got the handle on the powder and the hops were as good as can be. A 500 ml for two people still too much. JoeMcPhee (10179) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2017
Deep hazy yellow-gold pour. The aroma is bright and juicy with a touch of pineapple and green hop character. There's a bit of sweetness and a touch of dankness. Green and earthy with a bit of bright fruitiness. There's a little bit of passionfruit here but the hoppiness is less intense and tropical than many. Decent.

500 ml bottle from Hafis Road bottle shop. Pours a murky orangey peach colour with moderate-sized white head. Aroma is earthy citrus, very dank resin and a little tropical fruit. Flavour is a little fruitier and a little less dank with underripe mango and pineapple, resin and some earthiness. Average plus body. Nice.
