Clear amber with a thick soapy head. Floral, pine, sweet citrus on nose. Light-medium malt body with a distinct pine resin finish. Very crisp. Yum.

Look: Clear dark red-straw color. Short head collapsed into small bubbles in a minute, but left a thin skiff across the surface. Slight lacing left on the side of the glass with much smaller bubbles than the head. Only small bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.
Smell: Light fruit scents with a bit of malt underneath. Swirling the glass kicked up a funky yeasty scent.
Taste: Medium level bitters with some mild mixed fruit flavors. Malts join in after a few seconds. The bitters take over again for the aftertaste.
Feel: A little bit of tongue tingling effervescence as it turns into a small to medium sized bubble foam. Has a creamy feel only for a couple of seconds.
Overall: Very near to an IPA in overall flavor profile, but with a lower bitterness level than most IPAs. Quite refreshing.

355ml can poured into tulip.

Pours a clear honey amber with one skinny finger of white head that leaves marching inchworm lace as it recedes.

Smells of brown bread, fresh pine needles, orange rind, stone fruit, grapefruit zest and softly resiny hops.

Tastes of more bready caramel malt, citrus and pine. Peach, melon, lemon rind and more pleasantly dank piney hops.

Feels soft and creamy. Medium bodied with gently supportive carbonation. Finishes dry.

Verdict: Highly recommended. One of the best in Canada.
