A-Good hazy on this yellow beer with a pillowy white head that leaves good lacing
S-Aromas of field berries and white grapes
M-Medium body with medium to high level carbonation
T-Nice flavour with a tart element that accentuates the white grape flavour. This also lends a lemon citrus level leading to a smooth bitterness, yet acidic aftertaste

Pours a slightly hazy light golden with a cap that fades quickly to barely a ring. Aromas of lemon, pepper, and cracker aren't where it's at for me. Flavor is similar, though the lemon is less and pepper nonexistent. Slightly light mouthfeel and mild tangy finish. Still smooth sipping, but I would have been fine with just one rather than an expensive 4pk.

473 ml can served just below cellar temperature into a pint glass. Appears to be canned December 16, 2019. LCBO purchase for $4.95 CDN.

Appearance - Rather hazy, golden straw color. A finger of loose white head is poured on top and sticks around for a few minutes., Some spotty lacing sticks to the edges of the glass.

Smell - Tropical but more lemon and orange than grapefruit or anything else. Grape shows up unsurprisingly as well is small quantities. Some leafy grass notes in there as well.

Taste - light and fruity initially with some sweetness and then plenty of white grape, some grassy aspects to the flavor and bready undertones. Bit of a boozy close.

Mouthfeel - Medium-light bodied, good carbonation levels and dry finish.

Overall - I don't know... I really want to love it, but it's just good. There's nothing out of place, but doesn't seem to have the pop that say No. 7 did nor the juiciness of No. 11. An apt comparison might be comparing No. 8 which was a solid, well made DIPA to No. 5 which was arguably the best in the series. Worth a try but given the steep cost, I'm uncertain as to whether I'm returning to No. 12.

December 10/2019 batch in a can so was decently fresh.
Pours lemon gold with lovely semi transparent. A fine collar greets you with slight effervescence. Nose is fine grasses with pine undertones. Decent bready undertones with a fine finish. Yet again Collective Arts offers up a very fine IPA.
A christmas eve treat.

Slightly hazy, bright lemon yellow body. Nearly transparent in thin portions of the glass; quite lively. Excellent head production, retention, and lacing.

White grape and lemon lead the way on the nose, along with lemongrass, biscuit, mango, pineapple, and tangerine.

Smooth and balanced on the palate, with a nice pale malt backbone providing dough, white bread, and light grain, and hops accenting at first before asserting themselves mid-sip and through the finish. Light tones of pineapple and lemon; moderate-to-strong dankness mid-palate; lemony finish, along with grass and white wine.

Lively and crisp mouthfeel.
