Similar to the packages released last fall for BC Craft Beer Month, the two samplers – one featuring bottles, the other cans – are 12-packs that each include two containers each of six different beers.
Dark copper-bronze colour with a thick light beige head. Aroma of toasty malt, peppery rye, and pineapple candy. Medium bodied, a bit creamy on the palate. Flavour is predominantly malty at first - a bit of caramel, some rye bread crust - with subtle pine and citrus hops. But as it warms, the hops start to come forward and deliver the 60 IBU promised on the can. By the end of the glass, each swallow finishes with a nice hit of grapefruit peel and pine needle.
