A hazed golden amber ale with floaties, and a thick frothy light mocha head. In aroma, pleasant fruity caramel malt with loads of floral resinous hops, grapefruit pulp, light menthol, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with loads of resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, nice alcohol warmth, very nice.

Poured from 500mL bottle. Nice hoppy aroma of citrus and spruce. Pours a clear golden with good white head. As expected for an IPA it is bitter. Medium bodied, slick texture, lively carbonation, and bitter finish. A great example of a very hoppy IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A big ol’ lovable DIPA lug. Truly beautiful is all of its muscly, hoppy glory. A hazy copper capped by a nice, lasting ivory blanket of foam. The nasal is treated to a hop barrage both citrus, floral and piney mixed expertly with caramel and biscuit malts. The mouth is as smooth as you’d ever want, mild carbonation and a very lightly oily residue. Fine example of the style from a powerhouse Canadian brewery.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice cloudy orange amber with a small initial head. Big piney resinous aroma, followed by IPA citrus, mostly grapefruit. Solid initial sweetness in taste, followed by big, big bitterness. Super long dry finish that feels lie it goes from the back of the tongue up through the nasal passages. Great! Nice and full beer. Very enjoyable.

Poured from a bottle. Thin head and cloudy off yellow appearance. The aroma is the best part of this beer, but then I’m not a hophead. However I can appreciate the high marks this receives.

Probably one of the best DIPAs I’ve ever had. Nicely balanced and allows the hops to shine through. Not a session beer, but then again, it wasn’t intended to be.

Bottle. It’s true, this is pretty potent. Smells like you are sticking your face in a bag of hops, which you can’t stop smelling. Taste of pine, and resin. Lots of bitterness everywhere in this beer, but I really enjoy it. I find the hops are much stronger than the malt in this one, but that is okay. It is a great stronger IPA.
