COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A high gravity India Pale Ale brewed with 100% barley, six varieties of hops, water and yeast. Extra barley malt nicely balances the huge volume of hops in this brew. Produced as part of the John Mitchell Series. Turn around bright eyes! 17 Plato.

Very tasty. At 8% it doesnít seem overwhelming, and it still pretty crisp . Plenty of malty flavors, of course, but also crisp grassy, citrusy hops. Dangerously drinkable.

Very nice, very drinkable. What I like here is the slightly sweet malt. Provides a good counterbalance to the hops and the bitterness. Recommended!

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 One litre bottle, pours deep Amber, slight haze. Very hoppy, which I love, and a very long bitter finish, also what I love, so for me it?s really good.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2014 Rerate - @coopwinespirits February discovery bag - I need you more than evahhh! Rating #784 - Nov 26, 2013 - 1L swingtop from Coop.. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white foam, spotty lacing. Citrusy sweet, mild floral hops on the nose.. Mouthfeel crisp, mild alcohol warmth, low-medium carbonation. Taste is sweet orangey lemony notes with the spicy tang and hoppy bite lingers into the finish. I need you now tonight.

IPA. Pours cloudy orange. Smells of fresh fruit, citrus, watermelon. Taste is malt forward, malt sweetness. Finish is bitter lingering sour fruit. Not bad. Could use a little more balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Served in a 4oz taster at Barley Brothers in Winnipeg. Again, a decent IPA - but could use more body.

Bottle, from Triangle Wine. Ok aroma, sweet. Cereal malt. Little citrus, grapefruit and orange. Cloudy brownish orange color, good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Thicker body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Well. Itís a big sweet iipa. Never like when the description says balanced IPA. Itís sweet, hops arenít a mix I seem to like. My fear is it has travelled too far, but it is what it is to me...ok
