Served on tap at Royal Dinette. Pours a deeply cloudy, hazy straw yellow. Citrus, pine and dank aroma. Taste opens up with passion fruit and spice joining the citrus. Medium body, creamy smooth with fine but moderate carbonation. A better hazy IPA with more complex fruit than just juicy orange citrus.

Hazy brass; vague peach, lemon balm + scallion; speck of wheat then citrus, slight mango, onion, some apricot + grass, soft.

Citra + Mosaic

No dates on can, but not box fresh. That still doesn't forgive, though, this "East Coast/West Coast hybrid" which delivers neither the big juice of an NEIPA nor the cut diamond sharpness of Cali hop bitterness. Fruity, yes, but diffuse + aimless in its hopping, even watery. It does have savory Mosaic, though. Drinks like a session IPA, in a bad way.

2nd tasting: More mango in both the flavor + the (bumped up) nose when fresher, maybe even some berry. Still thin + ends with some unexpected IBUs. Falls between two stools.

Poured in tap at the alibi room.

Solid opaque orange body. Touches a bit of rising carbonation. Two finger head presented, with a good coating.

Aroma is wonderfully balanced but also hop forward. Bright senses of pine and tropics, good backing caramel malt, with classic clean profile.

Palate brings the goods. Hints nearly nigh juicy quality, a nice sweet malt oomph with touches of tropics and a booming citrus quality. Drinks incredibly fast.

Great solid slamming IPA.

Can: Poured a hazy bright yellow color ale with a medium size white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy notes with some tropical fruit and some light orangey notes is quite enticing. Taste is a mix of citrusy undertones with some tropical fruit notes, some residual sugar notes with some light grapefruit notes. Body is full with good carbonation. Solid IPA with nice floral undertones and limited bitterness.

Poured from a 473ml can.
Another great IPA from the Superflux guys super drinkable.
I like the rotating beer thing as fresh ones are out.
$20 a 4 pack but worth it.

Quick: pours a deep gold and clear with perhaps a hint of haze. Decent head and good lacing. Smell is tropical fruits and piney. Taste sees the tropical come across stronger while it finishes bitter. Aftertaste though is all tropical. Feel is nice, medium to full body and a nice amount to of carbonation.

A very nice beer from Canada's west coast. I'd like to try more from these guys.

Can

Bright gold, opaque but not cloudy. Moderate head that leaves generous lacing. Pine resin and tropical fruit on the nose. Tropical fruit continues on the tongue with pineapple particularly evident. Mildly dank. Full mouth with surprising effervescence. Top notch.

Straw with a slight haze, white head settles to a thin ring that shows a bit of lace. After a couple weeks in the fridge it drops nice and clear.

Great hop nose and flavour... piny resin, gooseberry, passionfruit, candied pineapple and papaya, grapefruit rind, a bit dank, hints of garlic and onion. Good bitterness that's not overbearing.

Moderate body has a light hop acidity and a slightly drying finish.

Exquisitely balanced, perhaps too drinkable for a 7% beer.

Very fruity, tropical and a hint of pine. Moderate to mild bitterness, with a bit of sweetness in the finish. Low carbonation. It's enjoyable and very smooth, but a bit on the mild side. I am rather underwhelmed given all of the excellent ratings.
