Originally reviewed: 3/2/10. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a limitless black. No light gets through. A gorgeous tan head caps it off like the top of a milkshake. Excellent retention; leaves lots of sticky lace and webbing. This is a really pretty beer. Big powerful pine resin scents burst out to the nose. Citrus zest and some grass in there as well. Great smooth and creamy body. This one sits a little heavy. Very bitter at the onset with lots of hop presence. Sharp burnt toast on the backend. A little charring. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. Great beer!

Pours a lovely deep molasses black with a brief brown head. Earthy light hop aroma. Slightly sweet brown ale with a very earthy taste, lightly biting hop bitterness. Good carb, thinnish body. Quaffable, but slightly odd earthy taste.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2011
Single bottle purchased from Co-op Liqour Store in Calgary, AB on 05/25/2011. Colour: Extremely dark red with hints of brown and low white head. Nose: Maple laced coffee, chai spice, yeast. Hops are abundant and full of fresh zest. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Tea leaves, and lots of them. Earl Grey? Some buttered toast pops its head in to say hi. Touch of soap. Hops are consistent. End trails off characterwise and leaves solid bitterness.

Bomber served in a tulip. Beautiful dense cola pour topped by a large frothy light brown head. Great retention and lacing. Piney and floral hop aroma along with some chocolate malt. Roasty bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, good carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a charred, bitter finish with sticky resin that lasts.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Draft, Brouwer’s. Poured black with a thin beige head. Aroma is grassy and earthy hops primarily. Flavor is lightly toasty malt with more of the grassy, earthy hop character. There’s also a bit of a lemon peel character, put mostly the hops are more on the herbal side. Very dry and bitter on the finish.

andrewturba (950) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2012
Pours a very dark brown with some sediment on the bottom possibly hops, big light brown head that stays and laces the glass really nicely. Aromas of roasted malt, pine, grassy. Flavours of chocolate/roasted malts, pine to grapefruit to grassy transition with just the right amount of medium bitterness that doesn’t over stay its welcome.

Bottle with Carla. Pours dark brown with tan foam. Smells very bitter with grassy notes. Tastes bitter with plant matter overtones and hint of roasted barley.

Thanks Kevin for sharing this brew! A- Body is an opaque dark brown hue that pours with a foamy 2 finger off white head. Plenty of lacing is left down the glass. S- Nose is very earthy, herbal, grassy, and mossy with a hint of roasted malt in the background. T- Taste is very similar to the smell. This is a hoppy beer indeed-but more the medicinal, herbal remedy, hippie, going green type hop than the bright american hop profile that I am used to. A very faint roasted malt backbone is there-but the highlight here is the hops. M- Carbonation is soft with a medium weight body. D- This is probably more earthy than unearthly. Certainly a different, atypical type of IPA. If I was into the more earthy hop I would love this brew-but I like my hoppy beers bright or floral. Still a decent beer overall.
