Brought down from Toronto at the biggest LCBO ever. High in hops, high in alcohol, pretty easy to drink - this could get dangerous/interesting. Would definitely get again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Super piney bitter bomb. Pours with a light carbonation, orangey yellow body and a thick, sticky white head that lasts forever. The nose is pine and tropical fruits with a heavy citrus zest and grapefruit aroma. Light caramel and toasty malts blend well with a pine heavy and resin laden hop. Beautiful lingering bitterness with a touch of malty sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle pours a clear copper color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is piny with some tropical fruits and mild caramel notes. Taste is a pine, citrus and earthy hop bitterness with a tropical fruity and light caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with some decent carbonation. Overall, this is a very well crafted DIPA, nice balance of hops and malt with bold flavours. Highly recommended for all those hop lovers out there.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Merci à Ju-Lo de m’avoir rapporté cette bouteille de la LCBO! Cheers man! Le liquide est cuivré et paraît lourd. En effet, les arômes d’alcool et de pain noir, accompagnées d’un look dense, sans effervescence et huileux ne laisse pas présager une boisson légère. Une IIPA? Vraiment? La bière est lourdement maltée, alcoolisée et houblonnée. Beaucoup trop riche et huileuse pour être une IIPA, j’ai plutôt l’impression de boire un wheat wine très houblonné. Est-ce bon? Oui sans doute. Est-ce agréable à boire? Je me pose encore la question.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.65 bottle. Clear, amber color and a large, off-white head which leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma of citruses, pine, blood orange, tea crackers, and tangerine. Taste is bitter, hoppy, piney, with noticeable blood orange and tangerine. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish does not surprise, tangerine again, though it is not to say that it disappoints. Overall quite a good beer; the unusually strong taste of tangerine works as a sort of gimmick. Frankly speaking I have never felt such a strong and clear flavor of one particular citrus.
