330ml bottle, nice artwork, and a new (to me) hop pun to contemplate. Another offering originally brought to Alberta in an exclusive to some store in Northwest Calgary - a few of them are now filtering out elsewhere.

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, frothy, and loosely bubbly eggshell white head, which leaves some decent layered bonsai tree lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of wanly crackery pale and caramel malt, dry dish soap, hints of pithy corn meal, and a soft metallic flintiness. The taste is more of the same, that soapy flintiness (can't seem to find other ways to describe it) quite strong, with perhaps a bit of muted pine needle, ethereal denatured citrus, white saltine crackers, corn nuts, and a further wee alcohol astringency.

The carbonation is fairly tightly held, almost pulling on my side palate, the body medium-light in weight, and way too edgy to be deemed anywhere near smooth. It finishes rather dry, that same flintiness consistent, at the very least.

Meh - I suppose I should be happy that there aren't any typical off-flavours here, but alas, I am not. That stony, metallic, and yes, flinty essence masquerading as hops is nothing to be proud of, in fact as it warms, the underlying standard citrus and pine essences come off more than a bit musty. Not worth the costly sixers they come in around here - barely worth the single, I gotta say.

Pours a burnished amber colour, decent foam but sinks quickly. Nice lace. Looks quite nice.

Smells a bit old, lacking hops. Malty but a bit muted. Touch of caramel, corn and brown sugar. Not bad but a bit lacking.

Taste is better; definitely more bitterness. Malty upfront - biscuity with caramel toffee and slight toastiness. Then a touch of citrus rind and bitterness is good. Bit of oxidation on the back, but decently tasty and retains remnants of a very decent IPA.

Decent body; not too much hop pull. Yeah, smooth.

Drinks ok. Full flavour could have been amazing. Just a bit weathered.
