500ml bottle.

Hazy straw with a strong head that dissipates slowly leaving wide-ranging lace. Spearmint, cut grass and sweet citrus on the nose. Subtle dankness. Clementine and sweet orange notes. None of the spearmint that was so strong in the nose. Full body. Medium carbonation. Excellent!

Semi hazy yellow pour with decent head, and good lacing. Smell is bold tropical and juicy. Taste is very New England, and mouth feel is very smooth and moderate bodied. Very enjoyable.

Moderate pour yields a one inch white head over a hazy golden straw body with very nice sticky lacing. Beautiful! Nose of pine, citrus, and tropical fruit. Flavors mirror aromas with a nice feel and semi-dry, crisp finish with an easy, forgiving bitterness that really appeals to me. Thanks to a lovely Quebecois couple who gifted this to me yesterday.
Salut!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Dense cloudy straw/yellow color with lots of activity and hazy yeast. Creamy beige 3 finger head, lasting around 10-15 minutes, with good legs. Flavors of pineapples, grapefruits, lemon, pine, clove, herbal spices. Fruity sugars but sharp and zesty, very crispy and dry. Smooth oily medium body with crispy and prickly carbonation. Strong and long finish, lingering tropical fruits and orange peels, with a thick piney coat, notes of peppercorn and faint earthy leaves. Good freshness, but the body is too thin. Very tasty flavors, nicely balanced taste, while the finish is slightly overly bitter for me. Still quite pleasant to drink. Overall excellent quality IPA, although I prefer the intensity of Arcane 17, this one will greatly satisfy those looking for a more robust version of the style.

Bottle: Poured a bright pale yellow color ale with a nice pure white foamy had with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of huge grassy floral hops with some citrusy and tangerine notes is quite incredible. Taste is a mix of resinous grassy and tangerine notes with some citrusy notes. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. I wish this beer would be available to me on a regular basis.

A:
Cloudy pale straw with a couple fingers of fuzzy white head. Slow settle to a flabby ring and patches, some scummy lacing. (4)

S:
Rich ripe fruitiness. Mango, guava, white bread, weed. (4.25)

T:
Even, pithy bitterness; floral, hard to quite describe it as bitter but less fruity sweet than the nose. (4.25)

M:
Soft, rich, dry, lingering hint of resin. (4)

O:
Really nice beer.
Looks ok, aroma is really enticing, the rest doesn't quite live up to what I was expecting based on the smell but it's a very good beer regardless. Juicy and big in the nose, bone dry and crisp in flavor, drinkable and generally enjoyable. Would have again. (4.25)
