20oz pint at the Underground. Apparently this a very limited release, geared towards the Craft Beer Fest next month.
This beer appears a slightly hazy medium golden amber hue, with one finger of foamy, creamy off-white head, which leaves some rather decent honeycombed lace around the glass as it evenly recedes.
It smells of caramel/toffee malt, honeyed bread, citrus cream, and somewhat musty piney, leafy hops. The taste is lightly bitter orange and grapefruit citrus, a nice forest floor detritus astringency, floral honey, and a solid, kind of doughy caramelized toffee malt backbone. Very little evidence of the 15-proof ABV.
The carbonation is present and accounted for, and little more, the body a hefty middleweight, and actually quite smooth, just a wee twinge of hoppy alcohol burbling up here and there. It finishes a tad on the sweet side, as the malt holds 'er steady, and the hops sort of flip-flop, shedding their bitterness, while retaining the fruitiness.
A pretty commendable IPA, especially for a first go around - good and hoppy, but hardly over the top, with a malt profile and ABV that are pushing into DIPA territory. I can't see why this won't go into regular production, once hop-happy Albertans get wind of it. Good stuff.
