Port Rexton Brewing Company Happy HoliHaze (Continuum) – American IPA at 5.4% ABV (C$7.83 at Port Rexton Brewing Company, 946 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 28-Dec-2019, reviewed 29-Dec-2019)

Appearance: opaque medium gold with a short fluffy off-white head diminishing gradually to a thin ring, spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pine, citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-soft carbonation, building bitter finish. (4/5)

I think this is my first (and only) in the Continuum series – which rather raises a nomenclature issue, doesn’t it? More resiny pine and lingering bitterness than is typical for the hazy/NEIPA style, but a solid A/IPA. (16/20)
