12 oz. sampled at Beer Revolution in Calgary. A hazy orange-yellow amber with a light smattering of white bubbles. Very perfumed tropical/citrus aroma (lychee, mango, papaya, light orange), with a classy underlay of sweet bread evoking pilsener malts. Perhaps the most tropical hop accented double pils I've sampled to date, the rich malts somehow taking a backseat to hops both green/resinous and brightly fruity. The co-occurring rich sweetness (caramel and honey) and tropical hops evoke papaya spears. Fizzy but the bubbles are gentle, quite thick and overall is reminiscent of a tropical fruit smoothie. Pleasant floral perfume in the finish. Interesting brew, a double pils hopped like a less piney west coast IPA. Gentle yet still somehow conveys an image of understated strength.

The beer comes in a dark glowing orange amber.

The aroma is slightly weak, but of piney hops, sweet malt, and grapefruit. A bit of that lager yeast comes through.

On the flavor, the beer has sweet caramel malt, spicy, floral, and piney hops. A bit of grapefruit with a big smack of chewy green hops. The body is medium.

The beer offers a bit too much malt and chewy hop character.
