I like this. I really, really liked this. A sessionable, real, IPA. Aroma of hops, cut flowers. Color of copper and unfiltered hazy. Taste rises to the occasion. A malty start, with the bitters follow up. Does everything simply right. Good work.

473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for $2.75 CDN.

Appearance - slightly hazy orange and copper coloured beer. A finger and a bot of rocky head and a plethora of effervescent bubbles. Good retention and nice spidery lacing around the glass.

Smell - plenty of citrus and some sweet caramel underneath. Almost a bit of a banana aroma in there too. The nose isn't quite as pungent as I would like.

Taste - creamy flavor kind of a vanilla or caramel that dominates up front before going to banana and milk strangely, before a rush of very bitter citrus and pine flavours take over.

Mouthfeel -really creamy at first, then the carbonation goes away and the beer finishes incredibly dry. The creaminess is interesting, but offset by the extreme dryness.

Overall - some different things going on, the creaminess and nearly milk flavor is arresting, otherwise pretty conventional. I feel like this could be really good, but the two contrasts, the creaminess with hint so milk and bananas just can't be in harmony with the dry finish and citrus taste. Work a try if just for a different feel on this style.
