355ml can poured into tulip.

Pours a murky orange with half a finger of dirty white head that leaves sudsy rings of lace as it recedes.

Smells of muddled citrus rind, pineapple, bready caramel malt and mildly dank piney hops.

Tastes of more bitter citrus rind and tropical fruit, bread crust and pine resin.

Feels soft and creamy. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. FInishes dry.

Verdict: Recommended. Not exactly complex, but pretty tasty.

355ml can - weird trash can scouring metaphor on the label. Where's Oscar the Grouch when you need him?

This beer pours a murky, medium apricot amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some random splattered lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.

It smells of bready and doughy caramel malt, indistinct tropical fruit notes, plain Pez candies, and some weak leafy, weedy, and piney green hop bitters. The taste is gritty and grainy pale malt, a lessened biscuity caramel sweetness, bland domestic citrus rind, a tame hard water flintiness, and more leafy, floral, and dank piney verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly active in its palate-coating frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, but for a mild hoppy insurgency making for a less than optimal experience here. It finishes trending dry, the same hops culpable and laudable by the same measure.

Overall - this is a pleasant enough version of the style, with the west coast dank factor not quite as forward as otherwise implied. Easy to drink, and kind of simple, really, which is typically this brewery's modus operandi, in my experience. Worthy of checking out, but not worth seeking out, if that makes any lick of sense.

Can with suspicious looking Raccoon. Pours a hazy to milky golden colour with decent short lived whitish head. Piney hop aroma, but taste more juicy citrus, tropical with pleasantly bittersweet finish on a background of pine cone. Not sure what I expected but this is one of my favourite offerings from Parallel 49.
