Huge thanks to ShogoKawada for helping me tick this one off - it has been on my wants for a long time.
Lovely, clear, Princeton orange body with a hefty ivory froth which slowly recedes to lightly-whipped egg whites. A thin wallpaper of lacing decorates the sides in an even pattern.
Strong hop aroma, packed with seemingly the entire citrus family. Light malt, a little pink peppercorn, and a light herbal note as well. Surpassed my expectations.
More malt on the palate, a touch of caramel, pursued by a heady wave of grapefruit and orange zest - sweet, bitter, and refreshing. A little bread crust and melon into the finish which is tart and fairly dry.
Medium-light bodied, creamy, and well carbonated. Very mild astringency, and just enough alcohol to prevent you from guzzling too quickly.
Fresh, and on-tap, this might be exceptional - I'll have to update my review next time I'm in B.C.
