3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
8oz sample at the Taphouse Grill. Pours a reddish orange with an off-white head. Aroma has caramel, floral hops and something metallic. Taste is of sweet caramel, resin and some woodiness. Finishes sweet and not very smooth. The metallic nose is a bit off-putting. That is what I get having a bartender who looks like Russell Crowe talk me into a brew.

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.

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: 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, itís probally an IPA Light for all you hardcore hopheads, eh?

Amber colour, dissippating head. A citrus IPA, quite bitter, verging on the paint thinner ones but not quite... I didnít realize it was a Double when I tried it, so now that makes sense. Surprisingly little finish.

1litre bottle from 16th St. Liquor in West Van. Pours a clear amber with a thin head. Aroma is sharp west coast hops with little identifiable malt. Taste is all hops with very little malt to report...leaves a puckering bitterness on the tongue but not one that is very complex. Itís average, not exceptional.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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.
