A heavy couple of pours at the Bittercreek Stone Tap Takeover.. Pours a hazed light orange... fluffy white head...

Nose is surprisingly "berry free"... the hops pummel what little berry presence into submission.. a bit of blackberry... some blueberry if I concentrate and I could easily be mistaken.

The palate has much more berry flavor.. Good distinction between the fruits... though the blueberry is soft... really, this is a Stone IPA with a subtle fruit mix mid palate and onto the finish..

An IPA it is... I REALLY wanted more fruit, but a begger cannot be a chooser.. Damn glad I got the chance to try this one.

On-tap at Naja's for The Full Pint's 5th Anniversary

The pour is a golden orange color with a white head. The nose is certainly quite fruity. Lots of sweet berries to go along with the citrus hops and pine. A light malt sweetness and bread aroma. As with the nose really heavy on the berries. Good grapefruit and tangerine hop favors, plenty of pine, mild malt notes and sweetness, and a restrained bitterness on the finish.
