Cloudy orange-tan color. Pours a tall head that quickly turns into large bubbles. Large amount of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Left a bit of lacing on the side of the glass.

Light citrus and barnyard scents. Swirling the glass made them a little more intense.

Mild tart fruit flavor overtaken by a mild barnyard and mild bitters. A bit of citrus showed up in the aftertaste along with a light hoppy bitter.

Foams up rapidly with a bit of a burn on the tongue. Medium body as the foam collapses.

Nothing really exciting about this one. Most of the local beers have been destroyed with excessive barnyard, so this one is notable by reducing the barnyard a couple of notches, but still not enough to deserve buying any more of these. With the previous reviews ending 2 years ago, it seems like the recipe has been changed for the worse.

473ml can - wow, there are four craft breweries in like a two block stretch in Port Moody. And I do like the name here, FWIW.

This beer pours a murky, pale golden yellow colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, rocky, and somewhat bubbly off-white head, which leaves some recently split Pangaea lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.

It smells of orange, lemon, and white grapefruit flesh, some stoney flintiness, a gritty and grainy pale maltiness, and more earthy, weedy, and spicy floral green hop bitters. The taste is bready and doughy pale malt, some muddled domestic citrus juiciness, a wet minerality, faint earthy spice, and more leafy, weedy, and damp grassy verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is average in its palate-coddling frothiness, the body a solid medium weight, and fairly smooth, with a nice airy creaminess evolving as things warm up a little bit. It finishes off-dry, the fruity esters not really letting their feet off of the gas.

Overall - this is an agreeable and well-rendered version of this sub-style of PA/IPA, the Citra hop really put to good use here. Refreshing, easy to drink, and a splendid introduction for me to this operation, who had more than a suggestion of hype to live up to, and they certainly have.

CAN
Milky goldenrod with steady pocked snow. 4
Grapefruit juice with specks of grass and mint. 4
Whole wheat cracker, lemon hard candy with hints of honeydew and pineapple, then comeback of lime granata and mowed lawn. 4
Light+, round, smooth. 3.75

Juicy, yes; New England, no. Gets a few angles out of Citra, if at 5.2%-appropriate levels of intensity. Nothing like some of the mango smoothies that are kicking around these days, though. Website says wheat, can doesn’t - either way, the body is a bit of a letdown. “Just” a very sessionable, aroma forward APA. 3.75

Favourite beer of 2016, hands down.

That's with 3 trips to PNW heavy brew towns (Portland, etc), sampling as much and many as I could get my hands on.

Dat Juice is just frickin really damn good. Had on numerous occasions, usually out of the can or in a tulip.

Pours bright orange with a real cloudiness that I appreciate (can't stand filtered brews anymore). Nice head that lingers, again just like it should.

Smell is intense orange. It's Dat F'n Juice yo!

Taste is simply outta sight. Big juicy notes with amazing balance so you still get some hoppy notes for the OG hop heads. Something for everyone in this brew for sure.

Will Buy on every occasion I can. Big shout out to Twin Sails, keep doing what you do and I'll keep drinking it up!
