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 clear amber with a small frothy off white top. Aroma is big pine and grapefruit hops with light dankness. Taste is biscuity malts, big blast of dank pine and grapefruit hops that is awesome. And it the bitterness lingers.

jksipa (542) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Slightly hazy orange gold with a big off white head that lingers and leaves some lace. Nose is grapefruit and pine with some spice and tropical fruit. Nice and bitter throughout with a good supporting toffee and honey base. Mango and tangerine feature in the finish. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation and a long bitter finish. Balanced with some interesting layers.

Spab (2845) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2015
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear orange colour with pretty big, dense, lacey white head. Aroma is pine resin and tropical fruit with a solid caramel presence and some graininess. Flavour is big and hoppy with equal parts resin and tropical fruit - tangerine and grapefruit - as well as some caramel, grains and a little candy sugar. Bigger bodied. Impressive.

GregClow (2988) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Bright orange-copper body with a good sized close-to-white head. Thick and resinous aroma of citrus peel and pine, with some caramel and orange blossom sweetness playing support. Flavour follows the aroma pretty closely, with tangerine, orange oil, grapefruit peel and pine resin all coming on strong, although as it warms, a stronger malt base starts to come through. In the end, it verges on being a well-hopped barley wine.

hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
Smells nice, classic double IPA aromas. Sweet malt, onion like hop aroma, citrus. Clear golden color, foamy white head. Tastes nice, quite on the malty side. Upfront a candy sweetness, finishes with stinging hops, onion and citrus characteristics. Long bitter finish. An assertive, if uncomplex, double IPA. Medium bodied and average carbonation.

FROMTHEBOTTLE (32) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2015
650ml bottle. Like the commercial discription points to, the pour is of polished brass with a nose of grapefruit. Thick head dissolves slowly leaving behind consistant lacing. Prominent bitternessis well balanned with malt flavours. Mango comes to mind along with other citrus notes. Hops and malt blend perfectly. Not to much of either. Warn mouthfeel created by the 8.7%abv is not overwhelming. Very solid dipa.
