Undated 650 ml bottle XIII from the LCBO. Pours out brown-orange with off-white head. Nose is complex, with sweet roasted malt, pine, some oak notes. Big malt backbone on the taste, sweet caramel, roasted malt, really delicious. Balanced by a pretty assertive bitterness. I’m not getting much fruitiness here. I’m thinking the hops may have faded in this bottle, based on some of the other reviews here. Please date your bottles!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A big fan of this one! Copper gold in colour with pine, grapefruit and floral elements to the nose. Pine resin and citrus rind hops get your immediate attention, but they are ably balanced by the presence of substantial bready malt and burnt caramel aspects. The mouth feel is very rich which helps moderate the slightly astringent bitter aftertaste. This bites like a Stone product! Very unusual magnitude to this Double IPA for an Ontario micro beer. Well done!

Bomber. Pours amber, white head. Nose is strong orange, pine resin, caramel. Flavour is a hell of a lot of orange and pine resin with nice malt oomph. A really nice IIPA. Destroyed my sister’s palate, good job.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
More of an English style IPA, not really a double in terms of bitterness. Malty flavour, amber/brown appearance. Head retention not terrific.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Toffe and grapefruit hops with a bit of booze. Clear gold with a thin beige head. Resin, orange and caramel with a deep but appropriate. Not bad, but flavours are a bit plain.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice copper with a medium offwhite head that leaves heavy lacing. Aroma of grapefruits and flowers, nice. Taste is heavily bitter but never harsh, I would even say that it is smooth. Citrus flavors for the most part but a little caramel in the back also. Carbonation is medium-high and mouthfeel a little sticky. I didn’t expect much and was pretty much blown away by what I got! Nice!
