On tap at Gig’s - Hazed pale gold with a massive meringue cap. Aroma is sweet malts with citrus and some fruitiness. Medium-Light body has both westcoast and british Pale characteristics. Flavour has a big dose of pale crystal malts balanced off with some leafy citrus and resinous hops - clean drying finish with a bit of lingering bittering. Great drinking pale, extra points for its freshness.

Such a smooth, well-balanced IIPA. It’s been way too long Witchshark. Tropical fruit, pine and grapefruit dominate with caramel malts and resiny hops in the background. Deliciously bitter. One of my all-time favourites.

sammyboyy (54) - Shawinigan, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2015
Excellente IIPA. Je trouve aucun défaut au niveau du goût. Tout ce qu’on peut espérer d’une IPA impériale. Goûté pour la première fois à la soirée des brasseurs lorsque Bellwoods et Cantillon étaient présents. Superbe amertume avec un goût d’agrumes bien présent.

samzim (305) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2015
Floral aroma with fruity notes. Hazy apricot colour. Bitter front with flavour of grapefruit and lychee at the finish. Medium body with lively carbonation. A pleasant, hoppy brew.

Ambré. Beau collet. Bonne amertume. Résine. Agrume. Citron. Pamplemousse. Ne fait pas son pourcentage. Très sèche et désaltérante. Excellente.

Franckg (380) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
Bien sucré et houblonné. Traces de pin. Une bonne DIPA mais qui reste dans un crédo assez standard

oakbluff (428) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
On draft at brewpub. Cloudy tangerine with small white head. Nose is subtle. Sweet tropical fruit. Taste not overly assertive on bitterness. For dipa reasonably balanced with each component playing it’s role. Pithy grapefruit and pine. Cookie dough malt. Dry finish not overly hot.

BreWedge (365) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with a large white foamy head. Aromas are tropical fruit and a bit of pine. Tastes of pine, grapefruit, and some roasty malts in the background. Sharp bite on the tongue, oily texture, and a long astringent finish. Nice IPA but with one hell of bitter punch in the face. Would love to try a toned down version of this beer.
