Draught pint @ the brewpub for $7.00.

Floral and slightly resinous, with a coating mouthfeel. Medium-bodied.

Smooth, wet. Somewhat refreshing.

Balanced but timid for an IPA, with a somewhat generic hop profile.

Drinkable and enjoyable, but unmemorable. There are more widely available IPAs that blow this out of the water.

Clear golden colour with a moderate, short lasted white head. Good lacing.

Moderate grapefruit and pine aroma. Not all that sweet. Decent.

Solid malt backbone with some citrus notes. Good firm bitterness.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

This is fine as an IPA but it disappoints with its lack of depth of citrus flavour.

Growler to Pint

Thanks to Afrokaze for this one.

App- Its a bit of a conundrum on this one, a very dark dark orange but is still very clear. A lot of bubbles in the glass with a one finger head. Falls very slowly and leaves a decent amount of cling. A little bit of a puck of head on top.

Smell- A nice dense citrus. Hoppy and thick with a little tropical notes and a touch of spicy hops in it.

Taste- A nice, clean and simple IPA. Not brash or over done as well. At the same time can be a little soft with a bitter note. A little thin but okay. The citrus notes really shine through and cover most of the bitter on this one.

Mouth- Medium bodied and medium carbonated. Very light residual bitter notes with a little soft fruits at the end.

Drink- I love growler only beers, I dont feel bad for drinking multiples since it needs to be drank quickly. This was a new IPA for me, pretty tasty and balanced. A bit thin at points with nice citrus notes. Thanks again to Afrokaze for the hookup.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer was served a medium amber color with a tiny white head that fades fast to leave only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The smell was citrusy and sweet with aromas of a sweet tangerine and orange mixed with some smells of caramel. Along with these sweeter smells were aromas of a bitter grapefruit as well as a bit of a bready malt aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter flavor of caramel and sweet citrus of a tangerine and orange nature. Upfront there is a moderate amount of a grapefruit hop taste which gets stronger as the flavor advances further. Along with the hop ,so too comes more flavors of a bready nature, but these are always much lighter and less detectable then the citrus hop. At the very end a lighter amount of a pine hop flavor also joins the profile giving the brew a lightly sweetened, but decently hoppy flavor .

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Both make for a very easy drinking brew, but also allow for the hop flavors to be picked up nicely by the tongue.

Overall – It was a good IPA, but nothing exceptional. Worth a try, but not really worth going out of your way for.
