341ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO - 13$ for a 6-pack
Appearance - Clear gold/light copper with an average size fizzy off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes.
Smell - Hops, malts, caramel, resin, citrus
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel, malts, and resiny/leafy hops. There is also some grapefruit and some grassy notes and a hint of an odd vegetable/corn husk flavour. It ends with a medium amount of bitter hop bitterness.
Overall – Just a few small adjustments away from a really good beer. They've done a good job at capturing the hop essence and it shines through in the beer. But there are some odd vegetable flavours mixed in unfortunately. Still a beer well worth a repeat purchase.
