A. Stiff pour yielded an impressive 3 fingers of head. Gold in color and clear. I can see there is lots of carbonation in this.

S. Very floral with slight citrus in there too. Pretty aromatic

T. Follows the nose. Floral and perfume-y with a hint of pine. Malt is barely present. Quite bitter.

M. Medium Body. Medium to high carbonation. Dry finish.

O. This would be nice on a hot day but I would only be able to drink one as I typically don't care for floral IPAs

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.
