UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015 Golden with small head, lacing. Aroma is fruity, pear, pineapple. Taste is malty caramelised. Pine and bitter finish. Not so fruity a taste. Average carbonation. I am not a fan of it.

650 mL bottle. A tasty but unspectacular IIPA.. There is nothing wrong with it, but there are better ones out there for the price.

Espuma densa e duradoura. Aroma cítrico e algo doce. Amarga e com cítrico presente. Excelente cerveja!

pours with a slightly cloudy pale amber colour with a frothy white head. Beautiful aroma with plenty of citrus hops and a exotic fruit, mango and pineapple. a bit of malty biscuit in there as well. on the palate, there is a bit of resin and sweetness with a caramel malty flavour but is well balanced by exotic hoppy citrus notes. I find this a very good brew even if I purchased it from the LCBO with a California origin.

650 mL bottle. Medium copper pour, few fingers of fairly dense and creamy off-white head. Big grapefruit and pine profile, taste has some light malt to it as well. Long bitter finish. Very nice.

Bonne petite double IPA assez bien équilibrée. Un peu sucrée, avec une viscosité moyenne, et quelques notes caramélisées derrière les fruits exotiques. Un ensemble bien sympathique.

Nez fruité, raisins typiques du Cascade, les malts semblent en retrait ; le liquide doré présente une carbonatation importante sans être exagérée, mais les bulles soutiennent une belle mousse blanche cottonneuse. La bouche, enfin, montre un peu des dents : bonne amertume, sucre résiduel costaud, notes de fruits tropicaux. Une impériale sans vraiment de subtilité, mais bien efficace.

Light copper in colour. The glass is awash in sticky, layered lacing.
My nose detects some hoppy pines, but is surprised by the amount of honeyed, caramel malts.
A fairly thick, slightly sticky mouth feel. The tastes consist of pine, bitter orange peel, caramel, grapefruit, and a touch of that musky honey returns.
This is a very drinkable, damn fine beer that I wouldn’t hesitate to buy again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 650ml bottle. Pours a pretty large amount of frothy off-white head and has a light amber coppery appearance. Thick sticky lacing. Aromas of bready malts, strong citrus and resin hops. Flavours are mainly hoppy, citrusy but also somewhat malty as well, with thick bready and even yeasty notes. Some hints of caramel and a little bit of sweetness. Has a good balance of sweetness and bitterness though I might add. Astringent and bitter sensation on the palate. Pretty good, but one bottle is enough in one sitting. A bit heavy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from the LCBO.
Appearance: Pours a light coppery colour with a couple fingers of creamy off white head. Decent retention and lots lacing.
Hint of hops and some malt.
Malt and some hops.
Mouthfeel: Average viscosity and carbonation.
Overall: I was getting hop flavours but also a good malt backbone. The flavours thought overall are somewhat muted as I don’t think this one arrived in Ontario at its freshest. Still, this is not a bad IPA and I would give it an 8 or of 10. If it were fresh, it would probably be a 9 out of 10. If I can find a fresher batch sometime, I’d be happy to try and rerate this as I think it has lots of potential.
