HeistAlmighty (1111) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 23, 2012
600ml bottle. Colour is oddly red for a DIPA, but otherwise looks fine. Aroma is brown sugar malt and citrus and floral hops. Starts with North American hops, then the malt, then some earthy bitterness I donít really care for on the finish.

asheft (2476) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2012
[bottle] Slight cardboard aroma with floral, spicy, and faint coffee accents. Almost clear bronze under a tawny tan foam that recedes to a ring with small islands. Spicy melanoidin flavour with faint cardboard, assertive bitterness, and moderate to medium pine hops. Caramel and mocha accents come through the bitterness. Medium carbonation, lingering bitter finish, medium body.

Sammy (8358) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Subscription series. Big carbonation but still several weeks from bottling may have tamed the hop punch from this. Orange body with a bubbly head, Lacey. Citrus,mango, drying finish.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2012
[4255-20120119] Tap. Light spruce leaf hops aroma. Slightly hazy, dark orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. More muted spruce leaf hops in the flavour with a fairly strong boozy profile. Full body is bitter and boozy. Good to try but would not wish for a pint in this case. (6/4/7/3/13) 3.3

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2012
Draught at Rhino, Jan. 19. Pours a hazy amber-copper with a small diminishing frothy off-white head. Decent lacing. Slightly mild aroma of resiny & fruity hops, some alcohol, lightly toasted caramel malt and grain. Malty flavour along with alcohol, fruit and most of the hops showing in the bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good but not an "American-style Double IPA" as itís described, itís closer to what Iíd describe as an Ontario-style DIPA.

Lubiere (9747) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2012
An orange amber DIPA with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, a nice smooth grassy hops profile, piney and resinous, with light cloves and honey malt. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with resinous bitter piney hops, sustained grassy bitterness, intense and challenging, very nice. On tap at Wellington Gastropub, Feb. 23 2012, 8$ a pint.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2012
Finally crossed paths with this brew at Dominion in Queen. Pouts a deep amber with a thick white head. The nose is lightly dank with notes of light fruit and toasted malt. A fairly bitter brew actually with a distinctly minerally character. A little bit of light earthiness that lends the brew a sort of rusticity that is pretty interesting. Lingering bitterness and a little bit of crystal malt. Itís decent although I could handle more late hops to really bump it up on the aroma front. Doesnít drink like 8% and is refreshingly dry.

PatIrish (168) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2012
On tap at The Only, pours an amber to red in colour, frothy white head. The aroma is quite unique, floral & fruity. Taste is sweet and full on the palate with lotís of hop bitterness on the finish. Quite nice.

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Strong hops, alcohol and a slightly fruity body. An ipa with a good, interesting body. Very interesting beer - I will definitely try this again. On tap at the burger bar.
