Pours a cloudy pale straw with a healthy finger of head. The nose has some pine and citrus but nothing explodes out at me. The flavor has a nice citrusy and hoppy essence.

-amber can pour with 1.5 cm foam cap. Aroma is faintly fruity. Flavor is hop forward with crisp-ness and and moderate bitterness; there is a bit of watermelon on the back of the tounge. The malt body is substantial. This brew bridges a couple of IPA styles

Golden color with a solid head. Excellent piney aroma, and a good body. Taste is piney and hoppy, not too much in carbonation. Simply drinks very well. I really found this to be a tasty beer that is solid all the way around. Nothing to complain about here. This is well made.

16oz can with a best before date of Feb 2018. I think that is a bit ambitious to expect an IPA to hold up for 10-12 months. Pours a pale amber color, cloudy, and a large head. Nice lacing is left down the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, overripe citrus along with a bit of dank. Juicy flavor of pineapple, orange, mango, with a resin finish. Dry malt character that adds a bit of biscuit flavor. Bitterness is low considering the amount of hop flavor present and the dry malt. Nice soft mouthfeel and proper carbonation gives bit of chewy texture.

Can from Belmont Station.

A mildly hazy light orange with a dense, off-white head with good retention, this looks solid. The nose is a tropical fruit salad, a blend of peaches, melons, kiwi and passionfruit. There's a little bit of a fruit juice character here, along with a mild aspirin/crushed pill note. A touch of honey is present as well. The palate opens with plenty of fruit juice but thankfully, no pulp. There's peach, pineapple, passionfruit, melon, kiwi and a little strawberry. Bitterness is mild, allowing the focus to be on the fruity flavors. That said - there's a mild aspirin like bitterness present that's not wholly welcome. Juicy, fruity on the finish, this beer is medium-light in body and rather highly carbonated. Solid stuff.

This beer pours a pale gold with a large head. The aroma features cannabis, rotten fruit, honeydew, peach, cracker malts, and black pepper. The flavor has melon, mild pineapple, black pepper, cracker malts - the flavor lacks for intensity. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of bubbly carbonation. Overall this is a rather disappointing beer - certainly nothing super about it, may be better named subdued hop.
