22 oz bottle; unknown date. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Light grassy and citrusy aroma. Flavor has a mix of spicy, citrus, and grassy hoppiness, even a little tropical fruit, over some biscuity malt. It’s pretty good, really.

Un nez malté caramelisé qui domine ici le houblon! Couleur cuivré métalique et très bien transparente! Un petit col sur la paroi du verre sans trop d’effervescence! En bouche c’est sucrément malté avec une petite dose de houblon qui vient adoucir un peu/pas trop, le tout! C’est riche, trop riche, ça bourre. On ressent une légère amertume en fin de vie!

Pours deep copper with a nice size off white head that laces the glass. Good aroma of hops, pine and citrus. Strong taste of hops with side notes toasted wheat and a citrus fruit bitterness. Great beer.

Pours a clear copper color with a large tan head. Nose is extremely piney with a bit of dark cherry fruit and a bit of brown sugar. Faint smell. Not much to it at all. But it’s still kind of intriguing. Dry on the mouth at start then you get a fruity sweet mouthfeel and you end up with dry pretty hoppy finish. Very pleasant taste. Medium to full body. Very good

Middle aged man just built a new house and put a beer tap in. Christened it with "10 bitter Years" from Black Oak. Heady stuff that bites, smooths out with a tangy twang and then mule kicks you in the arse. On my way for my 2nd 30 Litre container of communal comfort.

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.

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.

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.
