look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

330 mL bottle poured into tulip, colour is a bright orange gold, cap of white soapy head, pretty good retention and lacing that sticks around. 3.75

S ā€“ sweet grapefruit citrus, honey, some subtle pine notes, pleasant citrus notes, bright florals. nice caramel toffee notes. I imagine it would be brighter if a little fresher, this has a bit of dankness. 3.5

T ā€“ sweet caramel malts with dry grapefruit, clean toasty biscuit, with some slight drying floral and piney notes coming in on the end. Full citrus, pear, lemon, some nutiness and cherry, all fairly tight and not that deep, some graininess with carbonation, the finish is dry, crisp and biscuit with some lingering citrus. 4

M ā€“ moderate body, good amount of malty body, plenty of carbonation with a bit of a souring bitter kick. Easily sessionable, enough bitterness to keep it fairly balanced. 3.5

Makes me want to try it really fresh, feel this has put on some age on the trip to the lcbo here. Still a pleasant though standard citrusy IPA, some pine and spiciness to it, wouldnt mind some more hops in it. Iā€™d like to see how it is fresh, but with some improving local IPAs Im more inclined to head for that direction.
