4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Manito Tap House
Toasted apricot with a solid quilt of fine toasted cream foam. Unusual look for a IIPA. Lots of pine, tangerine, grapefruit (tons of grapefruit), some pineapple, nice dose of underlying biscuity malt with a touch of sweetness. Bitter, metallic, sweet, pine, resin, more resin, some grapefruit peel, some nice spicy hops - really hoppy (haven’t said that in a while). Medium bodied with small, sharp fleeting carb leaves a active feeling beer with a character wet almost slick finish. Nice mouthfeel here. Good beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
As advertised...hop bomb extraordinaire. Orange pour with creamy off white head. Aroma is big bitterness with sweet malts and some herbal and floral notes. Taste has the bitterness but a lot if grapefruit and pine.Points for lingering bitterness that doesn't quit. But still balanced and drinkable. Great stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a murky orange amber with a small but dense creamy light tan head. Strong bitter aroma with some carmel sweetness. Heavy smooth palette, low on the carbonation. More like a Barley Wine.

Bottle. Pours amber with nicely sized white head. I guess aroma intensity is the reason you’re buying this (unless you’re some sort of masochist and/or a pack-of-cigars-a-day smoker and actively seek out this stuff for the bitterness alone) and it delivers, a whole lot of resin and grapefruit and earth. Flavour is mainly the bitterness, of course. I think in a certain mood I wouldn’t enjoy this; cause seriously, drink this and you’ll trip hops. What can I say, I was jonsing.

Hop behemoth - balanced with sweet sweet malt - mega bitter which is great - very herbal - deceptively easy drinker - definitely the final beer - anything after would be wrecked indeed. Superb.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper-golden with an off white head. Rich, pungent toffee nose. Full body and mildly oily. Competing sticky toffee and floral and citrus hops. Bitterness lingers on the rear of the tongue after the finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Floral hoppy aroma along with pine needles, but also the promise of bitterness. Hazy orange body, with an off white head of small bubbles. Yup definitely hoppy in the extreme. Grapefruit rind and pine needle with just a hint of caramel. Long lingering bitterness and a nice full mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a small, frothy white head and a burnt orange body. Seville marmalade and brown sugar aroma. Solid bitterness from the hops but it's the strong malt that makes takes us straight to a headache. Very palatable but little complexity of flavours. 12oz four-pack purchased for $16 from Metro Liquors, Saanich.
