16oz glass at Beer Revolution YEG.

This beer appears a slightly hazy, glassy medium bronzed amber colour, with one finger of puffy, spongy, and mildly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some spackled painted lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of musty, somewhat dank piney hops, earthy orange and white grapefruit citrus rind, a hint of sour apple, gritty pale and caramel malt, and tame floral, kind of weedy hops. The taste is rather acerbic, and bitter generic citrus rind, clammy pine resin, grainy, and kind of bready caramel malt, and a minor leafy, grassy astringency.

The carbonation is fairly moderate in its tightly rendered frothiness, the body an adequate medium weight, and as smooth as the hovering hops will allow at the moment. It finishes barely off-dry, the hops still holding sway over the near equal lingering malt sweetness.

A pretty heady and enjoyable Yankee IPA from this cadre of Alberta's up and coming young brewers - the kids, they be all right, man!

Whatever they are teaching the budding brewmasters, they must be doing something right! This beer pours hazy but somehow bright, with a decent amount of foamy head that retreats to the edges of the glass. I could not pick up much aroma - a bit of hops, pepper and bread. The taste is definitely on the bitter side - piney hops, malt, and citrus. Overall, this is an interesting beer that represents the style nicely.
