Boutip (5198) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey color ale with a nice off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy notes is pretty refreshing with some residual sugar notes and bitterness also perceptible. Taste is also a mix of citrusy notes with medium level of bitterness with some residual sugar and light caramel malt notes distinguishable. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very enjoyable beer but would improve with more attenuation and less bitterness.

Tried at Edmonton Craft Beerfest 2015. The best IPA of the day. Huge bitterness from the high IBU stomps on your tongue and doesn’t apologize. Huge citrus hop flavours follow with a strong malt backing. Can’t even tell it’s a 9%+ abv which is even more deadly. I liked this indeed...

Bouteille 660ml, gracieuseté de Beervana lors du CanBIF spring 2015, merci! Couleur orange foncé légèrement voilée, mousse blanc cassé meringuée laissant une belle dentelle. Arôme de pêche, nectarine, malt, houblon fruité, touche florale, litchi? Goût de pêche, houblon résineux, pin, amertume moyenne-élevée, côté un peu jujube, floral, malt, alcool habilement camouflée. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen.

Golden with a thinner, slightly Lacey head. Aroma of grapefruit and fuzzy peaches (yep the candy). The peach candy continues as a base for the the citrusy hops in flavour. Very much a front of mouth experience. Very good!

A solid IPA. Pours a dark golden. Aromas agree citrus and dank good. A touch thin and watery for a double IPA. Nice hoppy, and dank.

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours clear golden with a moderate frothy white top and some floaties. Aroma is tropical and citrus hops with some light biscuit malts. Taste is a moderate bitterness with citrus and tropical hop flavouring. Nicely balanced with the sweetness from the malt.

Tasty tasty. Lots of sediment. Hoppy, but not at all harsh. Sweet, but not sickly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bulldogops (1140) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Rating #1085 - May 18, 2014 - Bottle from CBI . 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. Well balanced for 9%. Illogically delicious.

AgentAle (1113) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
Aroma is roasty sweet hops, caramel, a nice earthiness. Taste is a very nice sweet tasty malt body. Slight caramel notes and some toffee. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Jaune opaque avec un grand tête beige. L’arôme d’houblon et pin. Le goût est du pin avec un peu de agrumes, mais pas beaucoup. Un peu sucré. Bonne et forte, mais un peu léger en bouche pour un impériale.
