    TASTE

    The citrusy, hoppy front of this beer is quickly followed with lingering notes of honey and bready malts. The fruity finish hints of sticky pine sap, but the grapefruit gains ground toward the end of each full-flavoured sip.

    STYLE

    Our cheeky riff on the American Pale Ale is to brew with a bedrock of British crystal malts and then dry-hop the bejeezus out of the beer with a big mess of citrusy Amarillo and Cascade hops.

A Pleasant Illusion is better than a Bitter Reality.
