12oz bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.
A - Pours a medium orangey amber color with a huge, dense, 3 finger pillow of cream colored foam that shows endless staying power. Finally, after several minutes, it falls leaving behind tons of webby lace on the glass.
S - Very fruity, estery aroma up front...citrusy oranges, mild sweet grapefruit, caramel maltiness.
T - Bitter up front, a bit metallic, still lots of estery fruitiness,, more citrus - grapefruit especially, earthy and caramelly malt at the base.
M - A bit watery in body, quite high carbonation...Perrier like in feel. Earthy with bitter hops that linger past the swallow.
O - Overall, not bad. Solid but lacking in complexity. Pretty easy drinking.

473ml can into nonic. date code almost completely smudged off but i remember reading the other cans in stock at the LCBO and it was like D0114 or something so i'm gonna guess that means they were canned on april 1, 2014. enjoyed on may 22, 2014
a: clear copper with tons of floating particles. two fingers of head
s: big pine and tropical fruit notes up front. grapefruit and orange peel afterwards. caramel malt on the back end. nice
t: follows the nose. extremely dank pine up front, followed by modest grapefruit, orange, slight lemon, and big pineapple notes. the bitterness kicks in a bit too early. the malt backbone introduces itself mid-palate and hangs around for quite a while, becoming tastier as the beer warms, though the finish is still bitter and dry with lingering pine from early in the tasting. somewhat unbalanced but the flavours are very nice
m: medium-bodied, very creamy. great carbonation
o: the top of the can reads "over the top hops" and that's far from a lie. try this out if you dig pine bomb IPAs. a very solid brew but i'd take a number of ontario IPAs over this one
