Wow! This is hands down one of the best smelling beers I've ever come across. Well done and worth a try just for the sake of its aroma. Very bright citrus with a nice musky sweetness. Sexy.

Good looking too. Moderate head gives way to a heavy film that provides very nice curtainy lace. Slightly hazy orange amber in colour.

Solid citrus to taste, very nice fruity hops, bitterness offset by firm malty sweetness. Lingering dry bitterness. Well made.

Quite impressive overall. Everything hangs together beautifully. Definitely worth a try.

Purchased at the LCBO $2.95 for a 473ml can.

Enjoyed in a standard draught glass at 5deg C

A- Excellent unfiltered IPA. Pours well with not much head but a nice film within a minute

S- WOW the citrus shines through. Sensational

T- Bitter bite off the hop then the citrus peel and hops come to life. Definitely quite a few different hops in this one. Not much cascade but a lot of other bitter hops.

M- Pretty good! Nice dry bite with excellent carbonation contrary to the lack of head

O- Very good. Looking forward to another of these. Good thing I bought 2!

Food Pairing

This wonderful IPA paired very well with... BBQ'd sausage. My nice home made hot Italian sausage paired very well with this hoppy light IPA.

A: Hazy opaque golden with an off white head.

S: Nose is all papaya and tropical fruit, though a bit faint.

T: Grapefruit peel, papaya, tropical fruit and orange rind. Maybe a bit of pine.

M: Medium bodied and smooth for an IPA.

O: I love the tropical fruit, and wish it were a bit stronger. I also wish the nose weren't so faint, but I'd definitely recommend it.
