Brewery: Bellwoods Brewery
Style: American Pale Ale
Brewer Description: (from website) In life, Jutsu is all about stealthy ninja techniques (well actually, techniques, skills, methods, tricks, or spells according to Wikipedia) but in beer it’s a fantastically balanced pale ale. Easy drinking with low bitterness. Brewed with an expressive Vermont ale yeast and weighing in at a cool 5.6%, it is quite easily the answer to a) your prayers, and b) the question, “What should I have to drink right now?”.

Intro: A 500ml bottle with no bottled on or best before date, pouring into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A hazy straw yellow colour, with a one finger white head that dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves some nice lacing.
Aroma: Tropical mango, pineapple, citrus grapefruit and melon.
Taste: Similar to the aroma but less tropical and more citrus. Only lightly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: An excellent surprise. A very enjoyable, juicy, easy to drink and refreshing hazy Pale Ale.
