ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, - APR 29, 2013
650ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a large off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. Fruity hops notes of grapefruit, mango and pineapple mix with pine needles and caramel and white bread malt in the aroma. Powerful grapefruit hops up front segue into fruitier tropical flavours of pineapple and mango, with a touch of kiwifruit leading into the mid-palate. Supple salted caramel malt in the mid-palate provides some backing to the hops. Melon and mango hops come in at the finish, leaving a lingering mango aftertaste. The range and depth of tropical hops flavours in this beer is very enjoyable, and there is just enough malt backing to sustain them, making for a classy imperial IPA.

Pours a golden two finger head. Nice lacing. Lots of citrus on the nose. Well balanced hoppy malty DIPA. Very drinkable. Would definitely drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice clear pour off the tap. Full aroma and huge blast of hops but enough malty backbone to stand up to the variety. This is great big IPA not be missed.

Mindwarp (35) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours a light golden yellow with big white head with a citrusy aroma. looks like its highly carbonated because the head isn’t dissipating which is holding me off from tasting it, and I’m thirsty damn it !! Taste has a slight citrus flavor but more bitterness but not t bitter, Overall a good IPA but noting special. Easy to drink.
