Bottle. Hazy burnt orange colour with a creamy light tan head. Sweet fruity aroma, notes of pineapple, citrus zest, mango, wheat. Flavour is not as sweet as the aroma, still fruity, some bitterness at the end with a dry finish. Some light yeasty character and earthiness when you pour in the sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

Man is this brewery getting it done lately... Another great offering from them and they have many! Pours a lightly hazy orangish amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit, Belgian yeast, spicy esthers and some funk... Brilliant! Taste is Belgian yeast, spicy grapefruit, citrus hops, orange peel like bitterness and all around balanced and complex. Seems lightly astringent but it’s more of a Belgian yeast character that doesn’t stick around too long and is inoffensive.

ENG: 650ml bottle from Liquor Mart Winnipeg, poured into the tulip. Opalescent orange to golden color, nice, medium tan head, lacing. Aromas of wheat, delicate pine, mango, tropical fruits. Tastes clovy, bitter-sweet red grapefruit, earthy, roasty, a bit of banana in the background. Some interesting pepper-like bitter derived from that grapefruit in aftertaste. Medium to high carbonation, medium body, thick. Overall I think this one’s the best from the trinity I’ve had from Fernie (1. Rockpile IPA, 2. Lone Wolf IPA and 3. Snowblind Belgian IPA). Very interesting palate, still very drinkable. Very good beer!

PL: Butelka 650ml z Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do kieliszka. Opalizująca, pomarańczowo-złocista barwa, ładna średnia, jasna piana, lacing. Aromaty pszeniczne, nieco sosnowe, mango, owoce tropikalne. W smaku goździki, słodko-gorzki czerwony grejfrut, ziemiste, palone, w tle nieco bananów. W posmaku interesująca pieprzowa goryczka pochodząca od wspomnianych grejfrutów. Średnie do wysokiego nasycenie, średnie ale dość gęste odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując myślę że jest to najlepsze piwo z trójcy browaru Fernie jaką piłem (1. Rockpile IPA, 2. Lone Wolf IPA, 3. Snowblind Belgian IPA). Bardzo ciekawa paleta smaków, nadal bardzo pijalne. Bardzo dobre piwo!

A really nice offering from this brewery. Pours a brilliant burnt orange with foamy and creamy white head. Aromas of Belgian candy and cat pee. Flavours are sweet Belgian yeast with a nice bitter finish. Rich, full mouth feel with just the right amount of carbonation.

andrewturba (1133) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2015
Pours a moderately hazy copper with an average sized long lasting off white head that leaves a ton of lace. Aroma is Belgian yeast, spicy, grassy, earthy, herbal, zesty citrus, some earthy notes and a light pale malt profile. Flavour is spicy, zesty citrus, grassy, herbal, Belgian yeast, medium bitterness, and biscuits.

fiulijn (15750) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle from Boundary Crossing Liquor, Vancouver
Hazy amber color with small head. The aroma has some plastic/rubber, phenol, candies. Good body strength, lean mouthfeel, actually a bit alcoholic; simple malt profile, with some cereals, caramel, moderate peppery/spicy character, strong bitterness, but just light hop qualities, although it’s a bit fruity and resiny; hints of liquorice.
Not bad, but simplistic.

Oakes (13132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
Hazy light tan. Very thin bubbly head. Aroma has lots of bubblegummy aromas but the taste is quite a bit more convoluted. Sweet, bitter...not coming together. Phenols are random, esters, too. None of this makes sense, it’s just a bunch of stuff in a glass.

northropfrye (2395) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
Nicely balanced with Belgian candy sweetness in addition to the bitter hops. Enjoyable.

Lagerboy (1442) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2014
Bomber. Clear medium copper, thinner fading off-white foam. Aroma is fruity, caramel yeasty. Bitter Belgian yeasty PNW hopped hybrid, sweeter caramel malts as it warms, verging on cloying yet oddly drinkable. Softer than average carbonation, medium bodied, more aggressively hopped. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

DuffMan (7338) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy at 5am during the Canada vs. Sweden gold medal hockey game. Hazy orange with an average white head that leaves lace early on. Sweet marmalade, a little peachy, with solid bitterness. A decent IPA, perhaps on the sweet side, but lacking any yeasty signature to truly peg this as Belgian.
