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.

Superbe bière trouble, couleur de miel et coiffée d’un épais col crème marquant le verre d’une opulente dentelle. Des arômes fruités de caramel, puis la chaleur de l’alcool avec un agréable passage floral. Solidement amère, sans trop de sucre résiduel. De corps solide, crémeuse elle est moyennement effervescente. Elle se termine sur une longue fin amère et doucement aromatique.

Minderbinder (2470) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle 750ml. Pours hazy/murky golden. Minimal head. Aroma is of citrus, acidity. Taste is of citrus, weird malt, alcohol. Overall: Maybe I have to re-rate in the future, but for now I would say this beer tastes weird, which is no compliment.

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2012
750mL bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy reddish copper colour with some thick white head that dissipates slowly. Smell is sweet, but clearly balanced with some hoppy goodness, lots of citrus and something a little floral. Palate is fairly thick and a bit oily, slightly lighter than average carbonation. Taste is initially a bit sweet, but then the bitter hops roll in and just lingers for a long while. A bit of a warming alcohol sensation in the throat. Excellent for summer, but I’d drink it year-round.

douglas88 (7177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a mostly clear dark copper color with a medium white head. A rich caramel and green hop nose. A nice flavor of very sweet hops, candy, light caramel, lingering bitterness. Perfume.

Gription79 (2535) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 29, 2012
750ml bottle thanks to Craig. The aroma shows signs of alcohol and oxidization. Great hop aromas. The flavor is fantastic, citrusy, floral, resin, caramel. A solid imperial IPA.

This is a good IPA, probably one of the best. It’s a strong beer with great aroma.

Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Yellowy-amber, slightly hazy. Thin head. The aroma is sweet and a bit gluey. Sweet and a little bit crackery. Lots of bitterness but just heavy malts and old, dull hops.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Hazy pale amber. Nice lace. Aroma is strong, and ordinary, certainly has some American hops and sweet caramel malt. Chewy and strong; not sticky but not clean either. The alcohol is not well hidden at all. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
