Port Rexton Brewing Company Chasing Sun NEIPA American IPA at 5.3% ABV (C$4.99 at Port Rexton Brewing Company, 473 ml, packaged on 17-Jan-2018, acquired 20-Jan-2018, reviewed 22-Jan-2018)

Appearance: cloudy deep gold with one fat finger of creamy white head, moderate retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: juicy citrus, pale malt, tropical fruit, light pine resin, floral. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, short duration finish. (4/5)

Nice: easy drinking and refreshing. I bought this at their outlet store on Saturday, and they told me it had been canned about 3 days previously, so this is about as fresh as it comes. The bitterness tends slightly high for the NE/IPA style, perhaps, but isn’t out of spec for A/IPA’s in general, and is even-handed and well done. It certainly went down extremely easily after a day working construction! (16/20)
