This may be one of the worst ipas I have tasted. Hops are muddled by the malt profile which tastes like it uses too much crystal malt. As a side note, this was not brewed in Canada. This is by tailgate brewery in Nashville who should scrap this recipe!

Pint on tap at Calgary Crowfoot location. Arrived a hazy golden yellow color with a light smattering of white bubbles, mostly on the sides of the glass.

Aroma was bright and hop-forward, recalling fresh grapefruit and orange rinds, a whiff of pineapple and guava, pine needles, a minimal caramel malt sweetness. Malts very much downplayed here as one would expect. Taste wise this is probably one of the better session IPAs of many I've sampled in Western Canada, perhaps because the brewer absolutely nailed the hop bill or perhaps because this is fresh on tap. Either way, I'm on board. More of the grapefruit and orange from the nose along with pungent lemon-lime, spruce, cannabis buds, the other kind of grass, under-ripe guavas, and a slight touch of toffee. Light airy body and quite fizzy. Finishes crisp and dry with the citrus rind notes lingering.

As I said, a great hop showcase, at least on this occasion. Why does the can depicted here say "Nashville, Tennessee"? And since when does Brewster's have cans? I could just be majorly out of the loop, but not the correct beer methinks.
