3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

1 litre bottle. Pours a dark amber with medium head. Aromas of brown sugar and over-ripe fruit. Flavors of dried candied fruit, light toffee, and bitter hops.

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!

12 July 2013, bottle. Orange. Nose is orange juice and some bitter orange rind. Med body and mildly fizzy. Mild orange juice, maybe a nutty malt. Decent.

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.

Looks like a nice pint, deep amber creamy of white crown floating on top. Aroma is hidden... pint might have poured to cold. Sweet fuzzy peach candy is about all I get out of the nose....... so very mild. Flavour has a large sweetness to it, peach but not, melon but not, not honey, almost bubble gum. Lively carbonation. Very well balanced..... almost to balanced I WANT MORE HOPS DAMMIT. Drinks like a APA not a IIPA. Dusty dry finish. Whats holding this beer back. Completly drinkable boring IIPA.

Pours an opaque dark brown, nearly black. Enormous dense surging creamy tan head, tons of suds, dense sheets of lace, just an absolutely gorgeous beer to look at. Nice rich mango and grapefruit nose, fruity and acidic both. Creamy medium body, almost thick, with lively carb. Toast, caramel, nuts, pine, and grapefruit on the mid-palate. Very pleasant, refreshing, and drinkable, if not a startling revelation. Nice crisp piney finish. Thoroughly well-executed DIPA
