orange/lemon undertone, sweet taste, slightly hoppy, medium body, refreshing, floral profile- a bit too much floral notes, overall interesting combination, it was good but not great.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. A cloudy orange-yellow with a half-finger of creamy beige froth on top. Smells like tropical fruit, citrus, and fresh pine along with a tinge of toffee sweetness. Descriptions of this brew seem to vary. I am getting considerable melon and canned peach flavors, with the pine from the nose subdued on the palate and a more mellow grapefruit note in the background. Malts are indeed robust, toffee-like and almost a little toasty. Not particularly pungent, herbal, "dank", or resinous but not bland either. Fruity first and foremost, at least in terms of the hops. Sturdy body with a sweetish iced tea like finish. Enjoyable enough but do not expect anything too assertive.

Mild fruity nose. Hoppy without being overly bitter. Citrusy and a little sweet. Very drinkable and reasonably priced.

Had higher hopes for this one. No pun intended. It starts a bit buttery actually but it does find a way to adjust itself after about 2 pints. It is not overly strong in a hoppy way so it is certainly drinkable. Matched it up with a darker beer on tap so it was a good option. Just not quite finished to where you would think it would be.
