Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Clear gold orange with almost two fingers of fizzy/foamy white head, little lacing.
S - This is weird, super grainy, yeasty, metallic, bubble gum, weirdly herbal
T - This tastes more like a slightly hopped pilsner than anything. Very grainy, bready malt, lots of yeast, herbal hop notes. Very off mark for this style.
M - On the upside it is rather refreshing.
O - The style isnt right, the flavors are confusing, and its out of place with what is on the label. (489 characters)

16oz chalice at Beer Revolution YEG.

This beer appears a slightly hazy, medium golden amber hue, with one skinny finger of frothy, weakly foamy dirty white head, which leaves a decent wash of bleeding limestone painted lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of muddled citrusy, somewhat piney, and kind of soapy hops, crackery pale malt, and a bit of flinty stoniness. The taste is rather fruity (orange cream, candied grapefruit, and lime Starburst) up front, followed tightly by a semi-sweet bready and caramel malt, a consistent hard water flintiness, and some soft floral, earthy, and perfumed hops.

The bubbles are fairly understated, just a timid edginess throughout, the body a wavering medium weight, and kind of thin in its otherwise untainted smoothness. It finishes off-dry, the fruitiness of the hops and the weakening malt hanging tough, as a metallic sort of bitterness arises from the depths.

A decent enough IPA, one where the fruit obviously eclipses the bitterness, as far as the hops are concerned, at least. What this has to do with Spring, I dunno, but what I DO know, is that 'hornin' means 'drinkin' in Bootling, so yes, this is a fairly appropriate hornin' enabler, no matter the season. (1,233 characters)
