Single bottle smuggled back to Canada from Trader Joe’s in San Diego - tried 4 oz on tap at taproom in Alpine. Pours a clear slightly orange golden with 1 finger white head. Aroma of citrus/orange with pine in back - some bready malt. Tastes of smooth citrus with piney bitterness. Mouthfeel has a slight coating bitterness but remarkably creamy finish. Absolutely great.

Pours golden brown with a good inch of head. Enticing citrus and piney aroma. Taste is absolutely magnificent citrus and hops with easy, medium feel and no noticeable bitterness at all really. Wonderful IPA. Absolutely love it and on my way to get more.

Pours semi-cloudy gold in color with decent head and lacing. Nose is full on hops, citrus, and some pine. Flavor is very good, nice burst of sweet hops with a slight pine bitterness but evened out with the citrus. A very fine IPA, very clean and refreshing.
