COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

dhatton (137) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Pours a dark amber brown body with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malts with an inherent earthiness and some spice. Caramel and coffee tastes precede a hop bitter finish. Nice strong punch in the mouth; aggressive, but not offensively so.

cargo150 (959) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2015
Couleur ambré avec un col resistant. Aromes de fruits rouges,caramel,résine, un peu d’agrume, noix. Un mélange d’un peu n’importe quoi. Pas mon genre de bière. Mal balancé, je ne vois pas quesque cette bière a de tant merveilleux.

CacheManyHose (362) - HONG KONG - MAR 6, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2015 Dark translucent ruby-brown. Tan head with huge sudsy bubbles and fizzy legs. Smells of candied sugar, roast malt, some musty grassiness, some molasses and butterscotch. My description makes it sound overly sweet but it isn't. Taste is much more bitter than the aroma, candied malt, lemon, spice. Body is light but with a bit of slickness, dry, crisp, very smooth. Complex with lots of flavour without being overwhelmingly big. Lots of malt matched with lots of bitterness (esp. in taste).

HKdIPA (410) - HONG KONG - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle from QClub at home. Copper pour with thick slightly tan head. Slightly lighter than root beer. Aroma is ginger biscuit malty with some pine resin hops. Taste is very malty which hides the very piney/resiny bitterness (very SD/west coast style hoppiness). Very bitter finish with a bit of sweet malts. Lasts. Really good.

mfhennig (117) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Poured from a 22 oz bomber poured into a pint glass . Color of a dirty penny, massive tan head. Aroma of pine, citrus with a hint of toffee. A hint of bitterness in the flavor. Seems to be missing something. Thin body, lively carbonation with a bitter finish. It’s a decent beer that seems to be readily available year around. Not my favorite in the category, but I liked the bottles label.

NeuroPliny (220) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
Poured from an oversized bottle. Pours dark copper with a tan head. Nose is brown sugar, roasted malts, and hints of dried dark fruit. Flavour is more bitter than the nose suggests with notes of baker's dark chocolate, grapefruit, lemon, caramel, and brown sugar. Moderate mouthfeel.

stantheman (732) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
On tap at Rogue on West Broadway in Vancouver. Served in a 10 oz glass and re-poured into a large snifter. A very dark copper coloured beer with generous tan head. Bitter hop nose. This is a very bitter and hoppy beer, but with very mellow malt and fruit notes as well. All in all a very mellow beer, but the sharp hop note remains. Unusual in a good way! 4.0.

SuperTiti33 (759) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
En fût au Brothers. Rousse. Belle mousse beige. Ronde. Grain torréfié. Noisette. Mielleuse. Belle amertume. Fruits secs (raisin, abricot). Malté sans être sucré. Fine chaleur d'alcool. Finale sèche et boisé. Très bien.
