3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brought to me from a friend, a unique treat. It helps knockout just one more state. The aroma has two prominent features a strong yeasty nose, as well as a bright forceful West Coast hop bouquet. The beer is a deep caramel-golden color with a huge white head that laces all the way down. The flavor is potent with a lot of astringent citrus, floral esters, and bodacious hops. A bit more towards the medium end of body. The texture is a minor bit oily. The carbonation is a bit much, and the finish is long. A different beer, but not a true Imperial IPA, at least to me, if it is it’s certainly mild.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber: This one pours a clear, darker golden color. There was about a finger of off-white head on it that left minimal lacing. An interesting nose for a DIPA. It is a bit lighter than I would have expected. Earthy, musty and some floral notes. Sweet malts and some pine also. The taste is good. Not as bitter as I expected, but still a good bite. Lots of malts, minimal sweetness. Earthy, faint citrus. Good, but not quite up to sctartch with the rest of them.

Well balanced and holds out on the non-pressure of cask. Pours orange with OK head and lacing. Aroma of light tangerine and some florals with evident booze. Medium bitter finish. Tap at Church key.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Une robe profondément dorée. Une tête qui laisse des traces. Un nez de fruits mûrs, de conifères et de malts caramélisés. Une bouche bien maltée, bien amèrement fruitée et bien chaude. Un corps costaud avec des bulles visibles et une texture crémeuse ou huileuse, je ne sais plus. Une finale sur les houblons avec leur force amère et leur capacité aromatique. Une impériale de plus dans la grande familles des bières qui ne sortent pas de l’ordinaire. Correcte, tout au plus. Buvabilitė qui se situe dans la moyenne.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Review #971- February 12, 2014. $7.99 CAD for a 650mL bomber from Sherbrooke. Another IBU monster (127?), 8.5% Clear golden pour with a bubbly white foam, spotty lacing. Nose is tangerine, mango essentially the tropics in a blender. Mouthfeel crisp, mild alcohol warmth, low-medium carbonation. Taste is sweet orangey/meyer lemony notes with the spicy tang and hoppy bite. Boozy, hoppy, and unreal flavour and balance. Noice!

Bottle - 22oz. Nice amber body with a huge off-white pillowy head. Fresh, robust hoppy aroma with malty, spicy, grapefruit, and melon hints. Alcohol is very subtle. Its sharp hoppy taste carries citrusy, woody, and cinnamon notes. Ends with a long, strong bitter finish. Very good example of DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at unos. Pours clear copper with a medium sized white head. The aroma has piney hops, grapefruit, some flowery notes. The taste is a bitter assault on the taste buds with the white stuff from the orange flecked to balance.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A pretty decent double IPA. Very powerful, aggressive grapefruityness, some cane sugar, and lots of caramel to even it out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
ABV 8.5%. Bottled 15MAR12
Pours golden with an etched surface of whites. Brilliant clarity. Nose with resin, grapefruit, pine, chewable vitamins, sweet honey malt and a hint of lemon. Bitter with good dry malt flavor and a ton of hop character. Plenty of west coast here: weed, grass and pine. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a wet finish. Nice beer.
