12 oz can, poured into pint glass. Had a couple of these with dinner.

appears a medium copper color with head that fades fast. mild, but pleasant hop aroma - a mix of citrus and pine/earthy. taste is well balanced with some caramel malt flavor to balance the bitterness. medium body and carbonation.

A: Copper and cloudy with lots of sediment, 4 fingers of creamy head leaving a frothy honeycomb lacing.


S: Malts and black pepper, red pepper, light fruity citrus orange and grapefruit.


T: Caramel, malts, the big dull lingering bitterness I love, so typical to this style.


M: Medium thick resinous body, medium low peppery carbonation.


O: Excellent. Been a while since I’ve had a traditional IPA, and this one nails it. Bought in NC, drank in New Hamburg ON. Wish I didn’t have to rush this one, but I have a flight today and limited luggage space.
