12oz chalice at Beer Revolution YEGDT.

This beer appears a clear, bright medium bronzed amber colour, with a thin cap of weakly foamy, and generally bubbly off-white head, which leaves a solid wall of thinly painted lace around the glass as it genially recedes.

It smells of rather sugary caramel malt, watery and biscuity toffee, sharp pine needles, muddled orchard citrus pith, and leafy, earthy, and somewhat perfumed hops. The taste is very nougaty caramel and toffee oriented malt, kind of Mars Bar in nature, a touch of misplaced yeast, and still heady creamy citrus, pine resin, and well-soused floral hops.

The carbonation is quite laid-back in its low-end supportive frothiness, the body a dense medium weight, and generally smooth, a wee soupcon of hop and polite alcohol ingress tainting things ever so slightly. It finishes on the sweet side, natch, the booze-fueled malt kind of winning that tug-of-war with the hefty lingering west coast hops.

A more or less genial double, disguised as a 'triple' IPA. With its well obfuscated 20-ish proof alcohol, I guess one can't really complain all that much, especially given the big hop and malt 'hire me now!' presentation.

On tap at Beer Revolution.
Pours a hazy, golden orange color with a tall head. Foam settled to a small cap, rings of lace lines.
Smell is all hops, citrus and herbal, leafy hop aromas.
Taste is much the same, citrus, herbal, and pine flavors. Lots of hop bitterness, but not as over the top bite as I was expecting. Only the slightest alcohol burn as it warmed.
This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Not oily or sticky like some over hopped beers I have tried.
Overall, this is a pretty good beer. Lots of hops as expected, but still easy to drink.
