Clear golden in colour, this fresh India Pale Ale displays a moderately persistent head of foam and delectably fruity core of peach and green apple, with refreshing pine and citrus notes from the New Zealand and Australian hops. It measures 6.5-per-cent alcohol but doesn’t bite. It’s like eating a fresh peach in a pine forest in winter. Excellent balance. Available in Ontario as part of the Natural Selections B.C. Craft Brewers six-bottle sampler (along with such other good selections as Dead Frog Pale Ale and Sea Dog Amber Ale; $13.45/six-pack).
