2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at Barley Bros. Hazy orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas of orange, white grapefruit, dried leaves, and caramel syrup. Dank C-hops and pine upfront followed by a pale and caramel malt base. Finishes with an odd heavy + leafy bitterness paired with a heavy sweet malt note that doesn’t quite balance out.

A fairly decent DIPA. Hoppy aromas and flavors. Sweet and malty up front with a bitter finish. Nice.

On tap at Barley Brothers Winnipeg. This was quite a bitter IPA, and didn’t have the malty balance that you normally expect with a double IPA. Still, it was quite enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy dark orangish amber with a nice frothy off white head and lots of lace. Aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruit, citrus oranges and nice sweet malts in the background. Taste is a good balance of hops and malts, caramel, grapefruit, mango and a slick bitterness throughout not too much and borders harsh but not quite. Pleasant double ipa.

Sampled at Howe Sound. Hazy amber with a thin beige head. Very weak peach aroma. Surprisingly light taste, some booze, not much malt or citrus, high IBUs. Medium-full body. Very unexciting Imperial IPA.

A malty ipa balanced with a good amount of hop bitterness. A very ejoyable brew.

Oh tap at Rivers Reach beer club session. Very dark and turgid for an IPA. Big fruit, i.e. grapefruit and orange coming through on the palate. Nice balance of hops and malts. A winner!

not bad, but not great either. not too strong a hops taste, so it goes down pretty easy. good IPA for someone looking to see what a real non-Keith’s IPA should taste like.
