4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
From notes. On cask. Pours slightly cloudy orange with a nice foamy off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine and floral bitters; some alcohol as well. Flavour is very bitter; noticeable citrus, tangerines and resin, with a sweet malt backbone. Nice cask mouthfeel, slightly astringent, strong alcohol, but quite balanced.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper color with a large tan head. Nose is extremely piney with a bit of dark cherry fruit and a bit of brown sugar. Faint smell. Not much to it at all. But it’s still kind of intriguing. Dry on the mouth at start then you get a fruity sweet mouthfeel and you end up with dry pretty hoppy finish. Very pleasant taste. Medium to full body. Very good

Middle aged man just built a new house and put a beer tap in. Christened it with "10 bitter Years" from Black Oak. Heady stuff that bites, smooths out with a tangy twang and then mule kicks you in the arse. On my way for my 2nd 30 Litre container of communal comfort.

Brought down from Toronto at the biggest LCBO ever. High in hops, high in alcohol, pretty easy to drink - this could get dangerous/interesting. Would definitely get again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Super piney bitter bomb. Pours with a light carbonation, orangey yellow body and a thick, sticky white head that lasts forever. The nose is pine and tropical fruits with a heavy citrus zest and grapefruit aroma. Light caramel and toasty malts blend well with a pine heavy and resin laden hop. Beautiful lingering bitterness with a touch of malty sweetness.

650ml bottle pours a clear copper color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is piny with some tropical fruits and mild caramel notes. Taste is a pine, citrus and earthy hop bitterness with a tropical fruity and light caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with some decent carbonation. Overall, this is a very well crafted DIPA, nice balance of hops and malt with bold flavours. Highly recommended for all those hop lovers out there.

Merci à Ju-Lo de m’avoir rapporté cette bouteille de la LCBO! Cheers man! Le liquide est cuivré et paraît lourd. En effet, les arômes d’alcool et de pain noir, accompagnées d’un look dense, sans effervescence et huileux ne laisse pas présager une boisson légère. Une IIPA? Vraiment? La bière est lourdement maltée, alcoolisée et houblonnée. Beaucoup trop riche et huileuse pour être une IIPA, j’ai plutôt l’impression de boire un wheat wine très houblonné. Est-ce bon? Oui sans doute. Est-ce agréable à boire? Je me pose encore la question.
