Nice to see this in BC. Big hop nose and mid gold colour . This is a solid DIPA that holds the ground between big hops and a strong malt backbone. Very drinkable but still assertive , I really enjoyed this beer ( much like a bigger version of Ranger). Not world class but still worth the purchase.

Pours a brilliant deep golden with a frothy ivory head that lingers.
Resin, dank hops, and cat urine form the initial aroma, with pine and an underlying grapefruit character adding depth.
Flavor reveals tart grapefruit, citrus pith, and toasted bread, finishing fairly bitter, resiny, and piney. Dank hop notes weave throughout. Earthy hops dominate the aftertaste.
Body is moderate to full, with fairly high carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
Good beer, but not one that stands out. Not overly bitter, with good malt support. The flavoring hops are fairly diverse. Obviously not one of the more recent varieties of hops, though.
