3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium pale gold and rocky white foam, aromas of tropical fruit and pine resin and some grapefruit that play into taste. Sharp bitterness that rounds off in some warming alcohol and a bit of malt sweetness. Palate is mildly sharp and the finish carries long with grassy-herbal sharp hops.

Pours cherry sunburst with a thick froth cap that laces the glass nicely. A serious Imp ipa that showcases deep malting & punchy hops. Tasty & rich & a little over rated on this site. Hey - it’s a really good brew, but too many reviewers here -- people I follow & respect for their insight -- over hype this by calling it Ontario’s best Imperial IPA. I disagree & offer these alternatives as more exciting incarnations of the style: Great Lake’s Robohop, Black Oak 10 bitter years, and probably my favourite: Bellwoods own Boogie Monster.

500 ml. bottle. Thanks Steve! Pours a somewhat hazy golden orange with a smallish white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and floral. Taste is grapefruit, pine, floral, and malt. Nice DIPA.

500 mL bottle from the brewery served cool in a tulip glass. Hazy bright amber with a decent white head. Some onion and garlic with citrus, pungent tropical fruits, biscuit malt, pine and resin, nice. Medium body, fine effervescence. Lots of tropical fruit, caramel, sweet fruitiness, lighter resin and pine, quite nice; dry with nice bitterness and a long, resinous and fruity finish. Quite good.

Bigger bottle in a tulip. Pours deep copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and fruity and floral hops plus a nice amount of pale and caramel malts with hints of dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average to smooth texture. A good imperial IPA.

doesn’t get much better than this. iipa without being too bitter but has a very sophisticated hop profile. unfiltered with great head retention, not too sweet and delightful golden colour. tastes grrreat

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Beers from the Bikes Villes tasting on 11/08/2013. Hazy orange-amber pour with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is hoppy with citrus and malt notes. Medium to full body with flavors of pithy grapefruit, dank hops and malt. The finish is resiny hops up front with a grainy malt aftertaste. Fell short in my opinion.

Tasted a small sample at a BeerThief gathering. Amber beer, nice head. Aroma is a great blend of tangerine, tropical fruit blended with pine. The taste is bitter, but not killer since it blends with malt until you get to the finish, which lasts forever and is just bitter, straight up. Nice beer!
