Well who doesn’t love s surprise? Picked up this at a local grocery store of all places and was thrilled! Pours clear and golden amber. Very good collar that lasted well. A fine nose of fruity citrus with hop finsh. Solid IPA with fine finish. Again a great surprise and find.

L- PORUS A CLEAR, REDDISH-ORANGE, with a on-finger, white bubbly head. Plenty of carbonation.
S- Nice citrus smell with plenty of malt. A little of funk. Something wierd, It smells a little like many breweries do of ther spent ingredients and mash. I personally love it, many do not.
T- Actualy not bad. Good bitter hop quality in which resin sticks around. Citrus not overly done. A slight spice gives it more character. Just a little pungent funk.
F- Warming from the bitterness. Medium mouthfeel.
O- Probably the best beer I brought back from Canada.
