Purchased at the LCBO for just under the $3.00 mark or so for a 473ml can served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 1" high white head that films out within 3mins or so. Light to medium gold colour and unfiltered

S- Lots of dry hopping here.

T- A light beer to say the least. Not a lot of flavor at all. All the dry hopping without any wet makes for a bland brew. Just about a sugar water brew. No depth or body at all.

M- Carbonated way too much. Watery

O- Not my cup of tea. I like IPA's but definitely not this one. Will never buy again.

Food Pairing

This ok at best brew would go ok with...... Pretzels. Anything salty to get this one down.

Enjoy

Pours a slightly hazy but bright yellow with 2 fingers foamy white head.
Piney nose initially, citrus - grapefruit, a bit of lemony note, and bready malt in back.
Taste is up front citrus, grapefruit, grapefruit rind - a mildly astringent bitterness balances the bready malt. Simple and clean.
Light to medium bodied with a persistent pleasant hop bitterness, citrus, finishing moderately dry.
Delicious and refreshing session IPA.
