COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For the hop lover in you, this 100 IBU beer uses Columbus and Amarillo hops which exude explosive aromas of citrus, cherry, oak and rose water. Sweetness mingles with alcohol and hops in a lenghty aftertaste.

On tap at BDT. Cloudy orange body, white head with some good retention and lacing. Aroma is super hoppy, west-coast style, caramel, yeast, tons of spices. Taste is super hoppy again, caramel, alcohol, orange, pine, very smooth. The best from what I’ve tasted from BDT.

Sample tray. Crisp dark amber. Strong but not overly strong hop nose. A bit dark. A bit on the syrupy edge. Somewhat contemplative. Hoppy.

Verse une bière brouillée, blonde foncée avec un col blanc bien moussé. Odeur d’aiguille de pins mais aussi de ceises, de pamplemousses et surtout, d’ananas. En bouche, la bière débute de façon sucrée et se termine sur des notes amères de pamplemousses et d’alcool. Bel assemblage.

robinvboyer (2994) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2012
Golden pour, huge head, good lacing. Quite a bit of pine, and citrus. Lots of resins and an incredible bitterness. The alcohol is well hidden, but seems to add a light pepperiness that mingles with the pine.

rodenbach99 (3078) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2012
Style et résumé: IPA impériale houblonnée à cru. 100 IBU.
Comment: Bouteille de 750ml avec capsule métallique embouteillée le 30 janvier 2012, batch #324.
Description: Bière dorée avec une belle mousse blanche. Le nez est classique pour une double IPA avec des arômes d’aguilles de pin, d’agrumes et d’alcool. La bouche est puissante, les saveurs longues. Il y a une bonne dose d’alcool. Elle est un peu lourde.
Note: 6+ /10

Bottle 750 ml. Appearance: Pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Some lacing. Aroma: Citrus, floral, hops. Taste: Hops, citrus, floral notes. Some fruits. Palate is smooth with a dry finish. Overall: Ok beer, no real flaws but nothing special either.

garthicus (2658) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 14, 2012
Thanks to HogTownHarry for sharing! Appearance: super cloudy, bright orange/brown with a super white head. Aroma: Barley and a little alcoholic, good amount of hops in the background. Flavour: Big amount of alcohol at first, almost like a barley wine, upon sipping it makes way for very bitter hops, oak, I see on the label they mention rose water and can definitely see that. Tangy alcoholic in the finish. Quite nice.

dresden (810) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 11, 2012
Golden ruby colour with great foamy head and thick lacing. Grassy, citrus and pine aroma. Similar in taste, but there is a lots of caramel malt too... too much for my liking. Tastes of honey and alcohol. Not a great balance for me, but a pretty good beer. Thanks Pushkinwow!

Lanchester (182) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours a hazy golden hue topped with a bubbly and spotty whitish head; strings of thin lacing here and there around the glass. Fresh and crisp aroma of piney, resinous hops and sharp grapefruit notes. In the mouth, prominent yet not overpowering bitterness up front is curbed slightly through sweet caramel malts; finishes abruptly with a lingering herbal quality and mild alcoholic heat. Carbonation on the low side, and allows the hops more room for expression, although lends a mouth-feel that is a little too thin for my taste. All in all, this makes me happy.

C2H5OH (64) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2012
Pours a thick and cloudy reddish-orange with a thick, off-white head. On the nose is grapefruit, orange, oak, and resinous hops. Taste is fruity and malty up front with some nice herbal and citral hops featuring orange liqueur, caramel, grapefruit, pine and some oak. Very, very sweet and sticky. Finish is long and slightly bitter leaving orange lollipops and grapefruit peel. Not as bitter as one would expect, but that’s okay. Becomes a little cloying after a while, so it’s a brew best shared.
