COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Remember the stuff we were promised as kids? The flying cars, manned space stations and jet packs? The malty and caramelly flavors of an amber ale melded with the hoppy punch of an ipa? The future is not far off – and may be in your own hands.

SlovakSniper (3037) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
Une bombe partagée avec rodenbach99. La robe ambrée est fière de sa tête qui génère une longue traînée. Au nez, le caramel est au beurre et les houblons sont passablement affectés par le temps. En bouche, rien que du sucre malté et des notes citronnées qui m’apparaissent comme une infection. Au palais, une effervescence un peu sauvage. En fin de gorgée, des notes de parfum mélangées à une douce résine.

Bottle from Brewdog. Pours clear dark amber with a big creamy off-white head. Nice hoppy resiny aroma, super inviting with dusty and cellary malts. Taste is light sweet clean & dusty malts, resiny bitterness towards the long finish. Good.

[ As Gigantic The Future Is Now ].
Unclear medium to dark brown amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, nutty, moderate hoppy, floral hops, licorice hops. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, licorice hops, hoppy, nutty, caramel malt. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20140316]

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Caramel/butterscotch notes pierce citrusy hops and doughy yeast, while mild acidity morphs into a peanut-like aftertaste.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A stable cloud of foam tops the murky dark amber.
-The acidic touch in the finish clashes with the resinous bitterness.
-Can’t tell if this is fresh or really tired (there is no date on the bottle...).
-Effervescence is rather expansive which, with the acidity, points towards an infection.
-Hops are also grassy throughout.

Bottle.

Boutip (4646) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops is well balanced against a huge caramel malt backbone. Taste is also a well balanced mix between a huge caramel malt backbone and some citrusy hops with some piney notes also noticeable with a bitter aftertaste. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Solid hops forward amber ale.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from Central City Liquor store, Surrey
Cloudy dark amber color, with creamy head. The aroma is very hop resiny, but the malt is very dusty; some hop sweat, also some old malt. Smooth mouthfeel; some malt and caramel flavor but with a sharp dusty feeling; strong bitterness, resiny, some bitter oranges too. Long final.
Good but dirty.

Habanero (2482) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear amber with small, lacing and off-white head. Aroma is lemon zest, grapefruit, caramel and piney notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry an with bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A very nice and Ale indeed.
