Hop Heads rejoice! This naturally carbonated, unfiltered I.P.A is loaded with citrus and pine aromas from a continuous hopping technique that our brewers use to create this one of a kind beer.

Dark orange body, hazy, with off white head and lots of lacing. The nose is resin and pine, lemon and zest, and the taste follows, bringing a caramel and honeyed note to the middle. The close is snappy bitter. A full hop smack, and a well done one at that.

Poured from a 12oz can into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep golden brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains earthy hops, caramelized malts and some citrus.

T: The taste starts out with a strong earthy hops bitterness. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of caramel and citrus. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a decent IPA to drink for a while.

From a tallboy into a nonic. Pours a modestly hazy dark cinnamon amber with a fairly good off white tight-foamy head, with good lacing. Nose is caramel, heavy herbal and flowery hops, and some orange peel and general citrus notes. Taste follows...and then it has a nice earthy piney bitterness at the end. Overall, while it has some citrus, it is on the dirty/earthy side of things. Pretty substantial even heavy feel. This has plenty of good parts...it doesn't all come together well enough to really stand out.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look. Translucent amber in colour with chill haze due to not being filtered. Off white to cream short head with some lacing.
Smell. Slightly spicy sweet malty aroma with some citrus.
Taste. Nice malt flavour. Bitter with citrus rinds, maybe a little spicy or peppery.
Feel. Medium body. Initially feels crisp with a lingering oily feel.
Overall I like the crispness in the mouth and the explosion of hops in the mouth after the first swallow. The aroma comes out more in the mouth than the nose.

Simply put this is a great IPA. If you like a citrus, bitter & crisp then this is for you. Classic west-coast style IPA that is high in IBU, high in flavour & has a great finish. Must must must try!!!

My favourite IPA. Terrific juicy tropical and citrusy hop taste combined with a beautiful malty caramel backbone. Thick enough body to make it very enjoyable but not so thick that it's unsessionable. And of course, the 7.1% ABV is completely hidden. Being more of a malty beer fan myself, I strongly recommend this to other malty beer fans looking for a new IPA.
