Sampler at The Mondial de la biere 2012 in Montréal.The color is a clear amber with a thin beige head. The aroma is of hops and citrus fruits. The taste also of hops and citrus fruits plus pine touches with abit of malt.Not to strong a taste for a double I.P.A. but still very good.

Ámbar con espuma blanca abundante. Aromas intensos de limón, hierba fresca y pino. Cuerpo medio con inicio maltoso breve al que sigue el cítrico, los toques herbáceos y el final de amargor equilibrado de pino.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazed orange with a small white head. Sloppy lacing. Aroma of mandarin orange and dogfood malt notes. Flavor is malty with some hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Lively carbonation. I wonder if this is just a bad batch?

Aroma is citrus and grassy. Taste is citrus, a tiny bit of grapefruit, some resin, with well-balanced malt sweetness. The bitter aftertaste hangs around for a long time. The mouthfeel is spot on for a DIPA, perhaps a bit lighter than some. Overall a very good DIPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a hazed, orangey gold color, with a bubbly layer of soft white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was initially dank, followed by citrus notes as orange & grapefruit, with a bit of resin on the back, and some mellowing malt. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste included moderate citrus & rind bitterness that lingered, some noticeable alcohol, and a bit of malt/caramel sweetness. Decent, but just over the DIPA threshold, imo.

Super hoppy start and super bitter and dry finish. Like sucking on a wet hop cone. Smells piney and earthy. Light malt backbone. Had this one at home out of a bottle.

28.3.2014. Pines, fruits, grapefruit in aroma. Promising good. Smooth, piny, grassy, grapefruity. Fulfills the expectations of aroma. Surprisingly fresh and not heavy.

pours a clear redish gold with soft white head. Hops jump out before even sticking in my nose. Tons of citrus. Orange, grapefruit, tangerine. Some dank/woody hops too. Flavor is surprisingly restrained compared to the massive aroma. Some grassy hops, alcohol, very light caramel sweetness. Orange makes a late appearance. Sticky, almost numbing mouthfeel with a strong bitterness and some astringency. Short finish but the bitterness stays forever.

One of my favorite IPA’s. Very healthy dosing of hops with 8 differenent varities, love the dry hop touch as well. Super hop heavy, while still balanced and tasty.
