I picked this up on a recent trip to Calgary. Poured with a murky orange and apricot hue, opaque with one finger dense beige head and slippery, sheet lacing. Carbonation a bit muted but this remained one nice looking beer!
Smell was awesome with pungent grapefruit and mango aromas, piercingly hoppy on the nose. Taste also of huge hops, enough to cause a pucker on the lips with grapefruit and orange citrus notes, brutally sharp on opening and settled a bit with air. Hoppy mouthfeel was no surprize considering the smell and taste but pine resins coating the roof of the mouth caused me to pause while writing this review. Dry and bitter with a bit of malty caramel sweetness trying to make an impression here and there.
If you like your IPA's hoppy and multi-dimensional, this is the beer for you. A real delight to taste and savour yet presented with a bit more complexity than I expected, this deserves the high marks it gets. I only wish I could buy it in Ontario!
