UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 Purchased at LCBO in a 650ml nice new bottle. The beer was much better then I thought it would be. I was just thinking it might be a decent Imperial IPA, but it was much better then just decent. Very good beer with a lot of taste. So far this is my personal best IPA beer I have tasted that is made in Canada.

Boutip (5079) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle: Poured a dark amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and piney hops is quite dominant with some light spicy notes (some rye malt maybe). Taste is also dominated by powerful citrus and piney notes with some bitterness with light spicy notes and a dry malt backbone. Body is average for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed and very enjoyable. Glad they kept making this anniversary beer.

Great colour and strong head. Great toasty aroma. Solid bitters come through from start but the finish is softer with the toasted malt appearing at the very end. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy amber with minimal off-white head. Aroma is pine and citrus. Nice bit of caramel to balance the floral hops. Nice bitter start middle and end but not overpowering. It has a medium oily mouth with average carbonation. I had almost no expectations for this bottle but was pleasantly surprised.

2013/06/18 - Pours a clear dark copper color with a thick, foamy, off white head that lingers and laces nicely. Aroma is grapefruit/citrus, piney hops and slight caramel. Taste is pine resin and caramel upfront with a bitter, hoppy and tart citrus aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation and an astringent finish. High alcohol goes undetected in this well executed DIPA, however a slightly higher malt profile would have balanced the beer a little better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650 ml bottle, 8% a/v Pours a rich coppery/gold color with a nice tan head. Aromas of grapefruit, grass and resin hops, some caramel malt as well. Taste is also rather hoppy, particularly the aftertaste but not at all unbalanced. You cannot taste that this is an 8% beer at all as it is mellow and balanced to perfection! The palate is rich and smooth, with just enough carbonation. Very good job black oak. Heres to another 10 bitter years!

Citrus, pine, biscuity and toasty malts in the aroma. The malt plays a big role in giving this one itís aroma, smells delicious. Dark copper color, semi-long lasting fizzy head. Earthy, piney hops come through upfront, with a hint of juicyness and a herbal/sweet finish. A bit of bitterness lingers on the tongue, but is definately not overpowering. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. This one is delicious & very unique. Would buy many times again.

My my what do we have here? Pours caramel with a fluffy soda fountain cap that holds tight. Taste is layered: I get brisk hops, Caribbean rum & toffee on the tongue. Iíve got more questions than answers with this beer (which is exactly how I like it).

Slightly hazy orange golden pour. Clingy head. Grassy sweet hoppy scent. Yep tastes like a good IPA. has that really overpowering hops taste. This one doesnít leave you feeling dry at the end though. Not bad for a beer in a style I donít really like.
