3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341 mL bottle. Pours a clear medium amber color with a thin head and good lacing. Aroma is largely caramel malt and earthy/floral hop. Taste is sweet and malty, with a slightly bittering hop finish, but not as much as I expect from an IIPA. Creamy on the palate with medium carbonation, a touch of herb and fruit esters. A bit boozy and one dimensional; feels like its missing something.

I donít understand where the "cloudy", "hazy" from the ratings comes from?
This beer is clear! A good IPA. True that the Alcohol level is slight high for an IPA (9%), and there is a light kind of gasoline taste, smell or whatever, this beer is very drinkable. Best rating/comment I saw, or as closely to mine would be from "hangunder". Cheers

This IPA is intense, very hoppy. Starts off a little sweet and the goes into a very bitter end. I really enjoy this beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours cloudy amber with good head. Very strong aroma of alcohol - any hopes are difficult to detect. Tastes like gasoline - The 8.5% alcohol is not subtle at all despite other brews with higher alc content that do mask it well. Extreme on the alcohol. If there was a Triple IPA, this might be it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells of pine and honey. In the mouth, the hops are wrapped up in a sweet and syrupy character, cushioning the bitterness. Pine and citrus (orange) from the hops -- soapiness is thankfully avoided. Mouth feels clean and fresh afterwards. Very well rounded and uncommonly drinkable IPA... Minus a tick overall for its price.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy red-gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is of fruity and piney hops. Taste is lightly malty and extremely hoppy from start to finish. This could almost do with a bigger body to balance out the extreme bitterness. There is a slight metallic edge to the taste that I donít like. I would like to try this on tap.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is subdued citrus and malty sweetness. Clear copper colored and thick white head that lasts a long time. Pretty beer. Mild floral and piney hops upfront, sweet malt in the middle and alcohol/hop bitterness to finish. Fairly light bodied with the stated dry aftertaste. Hop extremism doesnít come through as much here as in many west coast IPAs, but itís an interesting take on a DIPA.

A bit & twist on the tongue that will stay with you for awhile. Great for suppingí on while slopping mop sauce on baby back ribs over the BBQ. Reach for another if you wanna get tight like that.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(347mL bottle from LCBO) A clear pale amber beer with a small white head that left a lot of lace. Aroma is lemon and orange peel, flowery hops, grainy caramel malts, slight herbal soap? Reminds me a fair bit of iced tea, for some reason. On the palate, orange leads into fairly sweet caramel malts, bready, complex, bit of pine, citrus juice and a particular flavour of candy I canít place as the hops start to take over with a slightly floral, tinny and astringent quality. Finishes dry, lightly bitter and, again, rather like an iced tea. I canít seem to shake that reference throughout the beer. Body is moderate, slightly oily, carb soft, booze hidden. Itís not bad, but doesnít have the big hop aromas or bitterness of a great DIPA. Very balanced, interesting malts, a little more English than west coast - quite DDC I guess!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear golden orange with sticky white head. Aroma is sweet candied fruit, flowers, tropical fruit, caramel and peppery spiciness. Flavour is sweet, candyish fruit, caramel, toasty grains, floral and citric hops and some lightish pepper. Drying finish. Delicate carbonation. Big and rather impressive.
