8oz glass at Beer Revolution YEG Oliver Square's tap takeover for this Beaver State brewery. Wow, what a fucking surprise, no other actual reviews (even 2 liners) yet.

This beer appears a hazy, medium apricot amber colour, with very little wispy and bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some hanging curtain lace around the glass as things quickly fall away.

It smells of pungent white grapefruit rind, blood orange, grainy caramel malt, a sense of tropical fruitiness unrequited, and some leafy, weedy, and piney green hop bitters. The taste is grainy and doughy caramel malt, mixed fresh domestic citrus flesh, a bit of spiced toffee, subtle hard water notes, and more zingy piney, leafy, and weedy hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its workaday frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, with the hops a clear and present danger, but not really, y'know? It finishes off-dry, barely, the robust hops sniffing at the lingering basic malt.

Overall, this is a fairly strongly rendered Yankee IPA, with a nice balance of complex malt, fruit, and verdant hop interplay. I don't know who this Randall fellow is, but his knife knows a thing or two about this kind of beery offering.
