Pours a hazy golden body with straw colored hues beneath the fluffy white head which dissolves to leave little lacing behind.

As advertised e aroma offers citrus,pine, and floral hop notes. All are fresh and clean with greater focus on the citrus sweetness and flower petals.

The flavor is similar with copious amounts of hops and plenty of variety including the floral, citrus, and pine notes previously mentioned with more focus on the citrus as it warms.

Medium n body with medium carbonation and a clean, crisp palate with a hop punch finish.

A great Aerican IPA with a nice variety of hops to entertain the senses.

I didnt detect any distinct aroma of a typical IPA. The grapefruit, pine , resin aroma just was not there.
My first taste and immediately I thought of a cream ale. Smooth, soft and creamy. Much like a French Cremant sparkling wine.
The taste was enjoyable and it had a distinct taste of fresh cut grass.
The aftertaste was a bit disappointing, very short finish. But it did have that nice dry finish which I love in IPAs

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange with a foamy off-white head on top. Nice head retention, with sheets of lacing down the glass.

S: Some nice pine mixed with a little bit of floral hops. Faint grapefruit and orange rind. A bit of biscuity malt.

T: Nice citrus up front, some apricot and a bit of pineapple mixed with some pine. Definitely flowery, like the name implies.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Bitter finish.

O: Pretty solid IPA from CBC, would expect nothing less.
