Holy WOW, this beer is so good. hoppy, tasty, flavourful. ABV @ 7.1 makes it a one trick pony, but on a one beer night this is on the "A" list. Well done Amsterdam

Pretty unidimensional IPA . Fairly well balanced but lacks the hop power of the best in the category. Quite average really. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stunningly attractive beer. Dark amber body with lasting foamy off white head and nice lacing. Perfect. Aroma is hoppy, I agree with cards04 about watermelon, maybe also cucumber, citrus. Not super bitter but nice citrus taste. Lively palate, lasting taste. Abv well masked. Overall quite a great ipa, as long as you’re not expecting crazy bitterness.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 a decent ipa. pours a murky dark orange with white head. aromass of soap, deteregent, and pine needles. Flavours are watermelon at first - then a bitter soapy hop finish. pretty good stuff.

Can. Malt and hops on the nose, some light vegetable notes. Fairly malty flavour, hops are light. Some vegetable getting through here too. Not bad, but definitely not my favourite DIPA.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
Can. Pours light amber with a fine textured tan head which forms peaks. Aroma is dominated by pungent, spicy-citrusy hops, with some fruity notes, slight pine, a bit of caramel and toast. Really nice. Taste is malty and bready up front, medium body, some hop flavour, and smooth bitterness in the finish.

piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
Canned sample. Hazy copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, pine sap, spruce needles, lemon, and a bit of caramel. Pink grapefruit, conifer, and heavy pale malts in the mouth. Balanced and not overly caramel-sweet on the palate, with a good amount of bitterness, but a surprisingly heavy body. Very much in the classic American IPA style. Solid overall.

Alpha10 (304) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2014
2014/02/05 - Pours a clear, orange-amber colour with a frothy, off edited head that lingers and laces nicely. Aroma is floral hops, tropical fruits, citrus, pine and toffee. Taste is pine, citrus, toffee and toasted malt. Nice balance between sweet and bitter. Aftertaste is toasted malts and astringent citrus/pine. Mouthfeel is slightly oily with lively carbonation and a crisp, bitter and drying finish. A descent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jkwood04 (3740) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 1, 2014
12oz bottle in a plastic hotel cup. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, light hops, and dough. Not sure about the freshness of this bottle, but the flavor isn’t great. Average texture. More of an amber ale than an IPA.
