Clear and bright golden body with a copper tint, sitting under a small white cap. The aroma makes it clear that hops are the big attraction here - juicy grapefruit and sticky pine being the main players - but there’s also some well defined caramel sweetness providing support. Flavour is also quite aggressively hoppy, with notes of grapefruit pith, pine resin and wintergreen, with some orange candy and caramel coming through briefly before the long and lusciously bitter finish. One of the best West Coast style IPAs in Canada by a wide margin.
