COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Robust. Brewed with a “heelch” (that means “a lot” in Boontling) of Columbus, Chinook, and Cascade hops, our double IPA has a palate pleasing bitterness that is artfully balanced with a full-bodied malt foundation. With a deep color of polished brass and a nose that sings of pink grapefruit and redwood needles, the rich biscuit-like malt flavors are intertwined with hints of vanilla, mangoes, and peppercorns leading to a deep, warming finish.

MALTS:
Pale Two-Row, Victory

HOPS:
Columbus, Chinook, Cascade

Pours a clear golden-amber colour with a big frothy yellowish head that stays long and creates nice foamy-creamy lace with designs. Aromas of thick green grass with lots of citrus fruits (tangerine, oranges), all with caramel malts. The mouthfeel starts off wet, medium-bodied, and end with just a little dryness. The bitterness builds up with time. Lots of oranges and grapefruit zest in the taste over cereal malts. Goes down well, but just not my type of DIPA.

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.

lesifflebiere (1454) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2015
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.

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.
