Twin Sails Releases Can’t Even and Juice Plus Batch #4

Today, Twin Sails Brewing in Port Moody BC released a new tasting room exclusive beer called Can’t Even and a fourth batch of Juice Plus.

Can’t Even—pale ale with honey

This pale was brewed with local alfalfa honey and hopped with a ton of Loral hops with a small Citra addition in the whirlpool. The sweet floral character of the honey is highlight by the Loral’s fruity/floral aromas. This beer is majorly hazy with a bright, clean, dry finish unlike the traditional NE style. We’re super happy with this beer and bet it will be the perfect accompaniment to this crazy hot long weekend.
