Dry hopped with whole leaf hops from the Yakima Valley, combined with Maris Otter English barley, which is floor-malted in age old tradition. A long maturation ensures plenty of flavour, with strong aromatics of grapefruit, tangerine and mango.

A lovely, if a bit strong IPA. A lovely drink! Red Betty extra strong. I am going to add more words now even though I don’t want to but RateBeer is forcing me to.

Bottled sample. Strong pineapple/citrus aroma. Cloudy copper colour with minimal head. Highly hopped with pineapple, grapefruit, lime notes. Medium palate and some more bitterness in the finish. Excellent IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2015 ENG: I am doing an edit of this review. New bottle, purchased in Liquor Mart in Winnipeg differs quite strongly than the bottle I tried in Edmonton. Bolded words means new additions. 650ml bottle from Sherbrooke store, Edmonton. Poured into the glass. Golden-amber color with haze. A lot of tiny little residue in it. Medium to small tan head without too much lacing, disappearing really fast. Aromas of mango(!), grapefruit, herbs, pine, maybe tea. When harder stirred, you can smell something like a pickled cabbage with cumin (but it’s just a association). Taste of hops, grapefruit, licorice (licorice is much less perceptible than the last time), roasted malts and I think that tea is present also in the taste - like a earl grey tea mixed with honey. Some tropical fruits also in the background. Bitter and roasty aftertaste. "A little bit too settling on the stomach and styptic - that’s a one heavy beer." - that’s what I wrote down last time as a overall conclusion, but this time I wouldn’t say anything like that. It’s more fruity, more pleasant, much more interesting. Probably this time I drink fresh brew (or they change the recipe, which I doubt). I raised the notes a bit. I must say I enjoyed it this time!

PL: Robię edit mojej recenzji. Postanowiłem dać temu piwu drugą szansę, nowa butelka, zakupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg różni się dość mocno od tej z Edmonton. Wyboldowane słowa oznaczają nowe spostrzeżenia. Butelka 650ml z Sherbrooke w Edmonton. Bursztynowo-złocista barwa z dużą ilością malutkich fusów. Piana średnia, lecz szybko zanikająca. Aromaty mango(!), grejfruta, ziół, sosny, może nawet herbaty. Po mocniejszym zmieszaniu szkła można wyczuć coś jakby otworzyć beczkę wypełnioną kiszoną kapustą z kminkiem (ale jednak to tylko skojarzenie). Smak chmielu, grejfruta, lukrecji (lukrecja zdecydowanie słabiej się objawiająca niż poprzednim razem), palonych słodów oraz tej herbaty - earl grey z miodem. W tle również nieco owoców tropikalnych. Posmak goryczkowo-palony. "Moim zdaniem piwo nieco zbyt mocno siada na żołądku i jest zbyt ściągające - jest po prostu bardzo ciężkie." - tak podsumowałem moją starą wersję recenzji, tym razem bym tego nie zrobił. Piwo smakuje o wiele lepiej, jest bardzo owocowe, przyjemniejsze w odbiorze, zdecydowanie bardziej interesujące. Prawdopodobnie tym razem piję świerzą warkę (albo zmieniono coś w recepturze, w co jednak wątpię). Podniosłem nieco oceny. Muszę przyznać, że tym razem piwo bardzo mi posmakowało!

Bottle shared by beerboxer. Pours honey color with a modest beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a dry grapefruit finish.

SardiniaMan (42) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
An exceptional beer... Appearance is a clear copper and amber color with a half-inch of beige foam. A well-balanced IIPA with lots of complex tropical fruit and citrus notes held in check by a hefty ABV and strong malt backbone.

Aroma is heavy on the toffee malts, also nice floral hoppy scent. .pours up a mostly clear rich orange with a slight haze..tastes really vegetal and grassy at first, some hints of honey type sweetness but with a citrus backbone delicious fruity yet malty aftertaste tho not grassy like youd expect the aftertaste to be.. really thick syropy boozy mouthfeel..really awesome ipa so complex and unique in its offerings...
