4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear orangish amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of pale malts, citrus hops, tropical fruits, resin, caramel and pine. Taste is caramel, pine, resin, grapefruit and a little bit of tropical fruit on the the finish. Excellent iipa, smooth well balanced bitterness and malts with a full thick body.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Dark, sort of dirty copper pour with a moderate beige head. A bit of sticky lacing throughout. The nose is sweet, some citrus and floral hops, along with a little bit of vanilla. I think the floral hops are a bit faded and contributing to the sweetness, but just a hunch. Mostly floral hops taste and light bready malt. There is a bit of dry tea leaf flavor too. Lingering bitters and pine in the tail and somewhat warming. Better as it warmed.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours murky amber. Head is thick and beige with great lacing. Aroma is of grass pine orange and other exotic fruits I can’t put my finger on. Taste is BOOM! flavor explosion. Grass, pine orange and almost a tart malt sugariness. Sweet malty finish with plent of FRESH hop bitterness that actually lasts and lasts. Damn that’s good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber into a stemmed glass. Pours a thick marble amber with hues of caramel, brown bark, and dark orange. Head is moderately full, about an inch, lacing prevalent all over, gives off a sticky feel. Aroma of fantastical hops, orange, melon, grass, clementines, slight ginger beer, and amber malts. Taste of juicy hops up front, followed by melon configurations, grapefruit, pine, bitter grape, apple, more hops, with a solid malt kick throughout. No brewed on date, but this seems fresh and is delicious. Drinks well, bitter aftertaste, quite so at times, then hops waltz in to remind you of the imp IPA status. 9% is just, the booze proclaims a head nod at all times. But never too overbearing. Quite an enjoyable brew.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
ENG: 650ml bottle from Sherbrooke store, Edmonton. Poured into the glass. 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 grapefruit, herbs, pine, maybe tea. When harder stirred, you can smell something like a pickled cabbage with cumin. Taste of hops, grapefruit, licorice, 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. Very bitter and roasty aftertaste. A little bit too settling on the stomach and styptic - that’s a one heavy beer. ///~~~///~~~/// ///~~~///~~~/// ///~~~///~~~/// ///~~~///~~~/// ///~~~///~~~/// ///~~~///~~~/// PL: Butelka 650ml z Sherbrooke w Edmonton. Bursztynowa barwa z dużą ilością malutkich fusów. Piana niewielka, szybko zanikająca. Aromaty grejfruta, ziół, sosny, może nawet herbaty. Po mocniejszym zmieszaniu szkła można wyczuć coś jakby otworzyć beczkę wypełnioną kiszoną kapustą z kminkiem. Smak chmielu, grejfruta, lukrecji, palonych słodów oraz tej herbaty - earl grey z miodem. W tle również nieco owoców tropikalnych. Posmak bardzo goryczkowo-palony. Moim zdaniem piwo nieco zbyt mocno siada na żołądku i jest zbyt ściągające - jest po prostu bardzo ciężkie.
