This unorthodox offering from Radical Road Brewing Co. in Toronto offers west coast pale ale—think citrus-heavy hops—stylings with the addition of Japanese yuzu fruit.

A healthy orange-amber in colour, this beer has insane amounts of head—pour carefully.

With lemon, lime, and grapefruit on the nose, this seems like it might be a bit bitter.

But it isn’t. Well-balanced, with the added acidity and fruitiness from the yuzu, this beer has a lush mouthfeel and is gently carbonated.

With a clean finish—the yuzu?!—this beer is refreshing and quickly quaffable.

When you want a taste of the far east with your west-coast ale, this new and exciting brew is absolutely worth checking out.

Hoochsavvy Grade: A-
