Bottle at Cole’s. I haven’t mentioned it yet, but a MASSIVE thanks to my parents, who brought me back some really fantastic stuff from their trip to the West Coast. Pours deep copper/orange, medium white head, great lacing. Nose is stonefruit, especially peach, with grapefruit, spice, pine, and sweet caramel. Flavours of bright grapefruit, light white peach, but too much caramel. Big sticky malt distracts from the hops. Nice, but too sweet.

The aroma is wonderful, loaded with pine, orange, lemon, some sweet malt laying low. The flavor starts with a malt sweetness that quickly gives way to the hops. Crisp and clean finish.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
Aroma of pungent weed and tangy bitter citrus. Pours hazy orange with a decent head. Flavor is hop dominated with notes of citrus and pepper. Not alot of balance. Lingering bitterness. Dry. Good.

10 oz. @ Baileys. Pours sort-of hazy apple juice. Aroma is sticky-hops. Flavor is straight hop blast. Quite sweet. If you like hops, you’ll probably like this.

22 oz. bottle- Pours hazy orange with a two finger bubbly white head. The aroma is malty, dirty dishwater malty, what the hell, I thought this was a huge Pacific Northwest IPA. The taste is bettter, it has a sweet fruity taste to it, that horrible caramelly malt driven flavor is less intense in the taste. Body is medium, carbonation is soft. Overall I was unimpressed, this is not a NW IPA, badass label though.

On tap, Pours a hazy orange color with a good head and good lacing. Smells of grapefruit, citrus and pine. Tastes of citrus, orange and tart with a good hop bite. Mouthfeel is pretty light for an ipa, finishes dry. Overall this is a great ipa I would recommend it to people who like hop bombs.
