dandeman (528) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2013
Évaluation no. 36 Octobre 2010. Aucun nez. De couleur ambrée. Mousse très persistante. Texture très onctueuse. En bouche le malt est très présent et accentué de caramel. Le fort titre en alcool n’affecte en rien la saveur riche et balancée entre agrumes et caramel. Bière avec beaucoup de corps. Fruitée et savoureuse. Balance de tous les ingrédients parfaite.

Gethinbeer (2173) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
Clear copper with a good frothy white head. Malt, fruity beer with a honey aroma. Caramel flavour. Slightly hoppy. Syrup like texture. Seems more like a strong ale than an ipa.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
November 24, 2011 - with blankboy, jerc and mabel. 500ml bottle c/o J&K. Slighty hazy bubbly amber-gold with a decent lasting frothy-creamy beige head. Decent aroma - a little sweet - mild resin, citrus zest, a little faded (7-). Taste is good and juicy, again citrus zest, some tropical fruit character, floral and a hint of resin - on the sweet side, only moderate alcohol, quite nicely balanced, reminded me a bit of what DdC Corne du Diable tasted like at first. Average body, solid carbonation, starts sweet and a little sticky, medium length finish, floral and dry - nice stuff, not great, but solid.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
Pale golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is a little bit fruity and sweet. A little bit of honeyed malt along with a touch of light sweet pine and berry character. Some chewy honey sweetness and a little bit of peppery bitterness. It’s fading into something like an old ale - the bitterness is still there but there is a malt dominated profile. Kind of reminds me of Fullers Vintage Ale with a bit of age on it. I bet this would age well.

Spab (2457) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
500 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a lightly cloudy deep golden orange with moderate-sized cream-coloured head. Aroma is citrus and pine with rich, sweet caramel/fruity malt. Flavour is caramel, tropical & dark fruits and piney/citrusy hoppiness. Fairly full body. Good.

radiomgb (2263) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Golden orange in colour with a large and long lasting off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of caramel, citrus, some pine, light toasted malts. The flavour is ofcaramel sweetness, citrus, bitter, earthy, toasty. Sweet and chewy mouthfeel, medium/large body, high carbonation. Finishes long, bitter with a bit of alcohol.

Pretty tasty and drinkable DIPA.

Bottled on November 24, 2011.

BeerGolem (683) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2012
Bouteille 500 ml. Arôme riche et bomplexe mêlant fruits (pêches), houblons, malt, caramel et une touche de produit laitier. Le goût est bien balancé. Très peu amère pour le style. Ronde en bouche. Une bonne bière.

glennmastrange (2288) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2012
Bottle. Moderate aromas of roasted and caramel for the malt, pine and grapefruit for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with hints of pepper and light dried fruits. Head is large, fizzy turning dense and rocky, off-white with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is sparkling clear medium amber. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then is lightly sweet and has a long moderately bitter finish. Palate is medium, watery, with a lively carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. A slightly imbalanced DIPA, a little overly sweet, but a very nice beer nonetheless.
