Notes/Commercial Description:
Hop Heads rejoice! This naturally carbonated, unfiltered I.P.A is loaded with citrus and pine aromas from a continuous hopping technique that our brewers use to create this one of a kind beer. Amarillo hops and a complex malt bill are used to create a balanced body with a large hop character giving way to a unique taste experience.

Draft at the Amsterdam Brew House in Toronto.
After the sweet Brown Ale, I couldn't wait for something hoppy.
Poured slightly hazy (obviously unfiltered), amber gold color with a tall head. Good foam retention and some lacing lines.
Aroma of bitter, earthy hops and a bit of citrus.
Taste has lots of citrus or grapefruit-like hops, ends with some earthy pine notes.
Body was fuller than expected, good carbonation, dry finish.
Very nice, this would probably be my go-to from this brewery.

355ml bottle from a 6-pack bought from the LCBO.

A - a little cloudy amber with a bunch of white foam. Stays around for a while, leaves a bit of lacing.

S - tons of pine, a bit of grapefruit in the background, faint sweet malts.

T - pine still dominating, strong grapefruit and some sweeter citrus notes. Malts soon come up and mix with the hops for a long bitter finish.

M - medium body and carbonation. Smooth, can't feel the alcohol at all.

O - Pine is maybe a bit too overpowering for my taste but still a very tasty and drinkable IPA.

Smell of fresh hops and pine. In mouth, it's quite light for 7.1 abv. Grapefruit and citrus are dominant with aromas of pine. Very crisp and fresh. Bitterness is moderated with a great citrus zest taste. Great ipa for sunny days.
