3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 On tap at the Alibi Room - pours a golden/red. Aroma of skunky hops, herbs and marijuana. Flavour is potent herbal hops with a lingering bitterness. Fairly unspectacular IPA, but at the same time refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Dark amber, hazy, large frothy sandy head, very nice lacing.   Damn, that lacing is thick, and sticky!   Sweet resiny nose, some citrus rind, but that too seems a bit sweet.   Smells good!   Moderate to assertive hoppiness on the tongue, decent malt base, not as sweet as the nose suggested but still good.   Has a sweet rindish aspect, citrusy, but not candyish.   This one is already better than most other Canadian Double IPAs I have had.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Could be a little thicker, but as is its well balanced.   The finish has a bit more unsweetened citrus rind to it.   This one wasn’t too bad.   Looks great, and smells great!   Didnt deliver on all the sweetness I was getting, but it was still fairly well balanced.   Not a hop bomb, not a malt bomb.   Very respectable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
1000, swingtop, capped. 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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Honkin’ big one litre swing-top bottle. Slightly hazy bright coppery gold with a huge lasting fluffy off-white head. Smells great - a very appealing juicy cereal/citrus/resin moderate alcohol blend, a bit floral. Taste is a little less balanced - it’s even more bitter, but less character - and the grain really begins to dominate. Solid body and carbonation, and a sneaky-long pithy bitter finish and linger. Solid. Thank goodness for that swing-top!

Glowing ruby, creamy head. Flowery hops in the aroma. Sweet malt giving way to an eclipse. Spearmint, euchaluptus.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [1L]. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with an average size lasting fluffy white head. Lots of hops in the sweet aroma, citrusy and resiny, but also lots of bready malt and some alcohol. Flavour is also hoppy along with a lot of malt and quite a long, big bitter finish and a bit of an alcoholic bite. Average bodied. A pretty good DIPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A juicy fruity IPA. Ordinary.
How: Big ass bottle shared by Camping Brewdown 2012.
The look: Cloudy dark amber body topped by a small beige head with good retention.
In long: Nose is soft fruity and floral hops, soft enough to let the malt sweetness pierce through the aroma. Smell of apricots, candied apples, other fruits, flower leafs. Taste is sweet mangos, mcintosh apples, citrusy hops, resinous notes. Not much caramel/honey sweetness, here the sweetness is really sweet fruits, borderline canned fruits. Mild-medium bitterness intensity. Strong juicy sensation. Not refreshing. Nothing bad per say, just not my type of IPA. Apparently the Howe Sound brewer wanted to call this beer “Colorful Rainbow Over Celine Dion” but the marketing guy said the name wasn’t gay enough.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[4730-20120818] Growler. Lightly smoked tangerine rind hops aroma. Hazy, dark orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Bitter grainy orange pip flavour. Medium-full boozy body. Interesting to sample. (7/4/6/3/13) 3.3

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, with a swing top. Pours a deep orange color, almost red. The head has significant volume, and holds steady. There’s really not any over the top aroma to report. This drinks with a firm and respectable wet hop character, earthen, chewy, well assembled. I like it ... and it comes in a giant bottle. (#5503, 4/30/2014)
