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

Very strong malt aroma and some faint hops. Taste starts very sweet but is quickly overwhelmed by an intense hop bitterness. A bit too intense on all aspects for my taste. Hops were present only in the bitterness and too little in the aroma and taste.

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.

RhetoricalAns (511) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
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 (1396) - 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.

HopsandBolts (158) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
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.

Aroma: Hint of hops and some malt.

Flavours: 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.

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.
