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.

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.
