Pours a dark copper amber with a medium size head which leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and the Flavour is on the sweet side. The bitterness is there but itís light and more in the finish.

Not even close to pale, this has a bright deep amber with a hint of orange. Very rich hops, but a stack of chewy breadcrusty crystal malt.

Very modest head, okay amber-brown body with a few bubbles in it. Good sweet hop profile, a stronger IPA meant for beer geeks, shall we say, than the unwashed masses at large. Flavour is strong and sweet hops with a malty finish. Very drinkable, well crafted, a good effort.

Ferris (2042) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2013
Bottle - Grapefruit, orange, spice and some nice malts to balance. Clear dark amber and an off white head. Very dark for an IPA. Orange pith, grapefruit and lots of malt (toffee) which balances the bitterness nicely. Although this beer doesnít have the typical West Coast IPA unbalance that i like, the balance makes this very sessionable with a clean finish. Simple but well done.

Iíve bought a few beers from this brewery. Hopefully this brewery gets more attention cuz they make some pretty damn good beers. Wonderful burps from this stuff... fruity (the usual grapefruity taste) and not quite as raunchy as some IPA that are out there.

Gerbeer (1500) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with little head. Aromas of toffee and malts. Flavors of light pine, citrus, caramel, and tasted malts. Quite nice though a little flat.

TripleX (5) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 21, 2012 does not count
Warm looking amber coloured. Bit of honey on the nose. Mouthfeel a bit leaner than expected. Short aftertaste. Somewhat disappointing.

On tap at The Oakwood in Kitsilano. Medium carbonation with a very dark amber color. Not much nose. Wow! This is a very flavorful and well balanced brew, with lots of hops and malts evident. Tilts somewhat to the malts in my opinion. A winner!

Bottle from Central City Liquor Store, Surrey
Cloudy amber color, darker shade, with medium sized head. Aroma of caramelized malts. Lean mouthfeel, a bit less bodied than expected, with a quite good flavor od caramel, caramelized malts, a bit of toastiness, light biscuits; quite strong bitterness.

Very strong grapefruit aroma, citrus flavour. A lot of tanginess at the back of the throat. They told me bottles will be available on the island come September.
