3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1L bottle brought back by my brother.
Appearance : Slightly hazy amber with medium foamy and creamy head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma : Resinous and piny hops with caramel malt. Light bready notes.
Taste : Piny and citrusy with caramel. Resinous. Nice citrusy and piny notes but a bit hidden by the caramel.
Overall : A bit heavy on the caramel for my taste. A bit heavy overall. Not enough aromatics for me to match the grain bill. Still well done and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Notes: cloudy rusty amber with a reasonable pale head that leaves behind a slight lacing. Aroma is northwest hops, fresh cut grass, touch of pine and a hint of caramel, good overall floral note. Good body, reasonable balance between malt and hoppy bitterness - the hops are not an overwhelming sock in the mouth with pine and spruce, whilst still being noticeable and finishing with a crisp bitterness. Taste is quince, grapefruit, caramel, malt and pine. One of the best IIPA’s I have tried.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2012 Eclipse of the Hop?!? Au contraire, this bad boy is nothing but hop... six varieties, no less. Zesty, herbal, grassy, piney, floral and citrusy, lots of overlapping sensations in this one... though if a Lagerboy such as I can put away a whole litre, it’s probally an IPA Light for all you hardcore hopheads, eh?

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best. Beer Name. Ever. Bottle. Pours hazy amber, medium, persistent pale tan head, spotty lacing. Nose is grassy, with citrus, hay, and a pronounced graphite/mineral/barnyard thing going on. Not "Bretty" or infected, but odd. Flavors of toasty crystal malt, grapefruit, orange rind, and mild pine, along with that earthy aspect again. Well balanced, but odd....

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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
