Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet malt notes with some citrusy hoppy notes and light rose hips notes. Taste is a well balanced mix between some citrusy hops notes, a sweet malt base and some light rose hips notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Good beer thought maybe a tad too sweet for my own taste buds.

Purchased at the LCBO for a pretty steep amount of $8.00 or so in a 650ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- 3.75- Opens well and pours a decent head that lasts. Unfiltered

S- 3.75- Good hops. Not much rose hips.

T- 3.5- Kind of like a sweeter IPA with a slightly unusual finish. Ok

M- 3.5- Pretty dry and open. Typical IPA

O- 3.67- Ok beer. Novelty more than anything else. Will not buy again

Food Pairing

This ok IPA went well with..... BBQ chicken breast marinated in..... BEER!!
