Another warrior holding ground in the current Granville Island "tap takeover" at Beer Revolution. Quite a light color for the style, a golden amber hue with about an inch or so of white foam. Aroma is notably grassy, weedy, and herbal, with some co-occurring powered sugar and citrus rind to provide a modicum of balance. Palate was again quite green and bitter, with mellow grapefruit rind, nondescript tropical fruit, lemon, gooseberry, assertive catty pine sap, dill pickle, green tomato, and apple pomace detectable to varying degrees. The dank, almost rank sap, weed and green vegetable hop flavors are center stage. There is some toasty malt in the background along with a cardboard-type oxidized off-flavor that thankfully is not overpowering. Dry and fizzy, with a flinty earthy finish. The hops flavors are interesting here and rather hard to describe verbally. The whole package tastes like an earthy tomato garden drizzled with pine needles and citrus peels. Enjoyable for Cascade fans and those who enjoy bitter medicinal resin flavors unencumbered by too much sweetness. Reminds me of Wild Rose IPA although I prefer the latter.

On tap at the brewery. Pours orange with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, biscuit malt and ripe fruit. Body is full and crisp. Taste is of citrusy hops, biscuit malt, hints of caramel and fruit. Finish is long and bitter. Good IPA among, many other.

A deep golden, caramel colored ale topped with a rather thin ivory head. Aroma is weak with some caramel and semi-dank, piney Pacific northwest hops. Tastes are balanced with plenty of caramel and bready malt coupled with pine and pungent grapefruit rind. Mouth is medium and creamy with lingering bitterness. Overall, not a palate punisher, but I did appreciate its balanced flavors.
