Bottle LCBO: opaque orange brown beer with beige head. Somewhat subdued Notes of hops, citrus fruit and alcohol. Taste has much more punch. Herbal, bready flavours with tropical fruit and hops. Intense, but enjoyable bitterness. Truly a well made dipa.

Ambré foncer avec une grande mousse beige stable. L’arôme de houblon agrumé. Le goût est sucré, des agrumes, avec une bonne amertume en finale.

Brilliant "embellishment" of the Legend of Mad Tom and a great beer from one of Canada’s best Craft Breweries. Glad I smuggled it home. A real West Coast body and mouth feel...only downside is the aroma....it is very hidden/subdued...unlike Mad Tom.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
misty tan body with a light white head. A very slight nose with hints of malt. This is another example of the imperial version loosing some of the snap of the original in the transition to higher alcohol levels. It’s not a bad beer. It just doesn’t accomplish much for the 8.4% ABV. The little hint of lemon is a nice feature and the body is rich and substantial.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazy orangeish pale amber with a resilient white head. Aroma is very hoppy, mostly citrus. Flavor is loads of sweet grapefruit, oranges, lime, pine tree, sweet lemon. Finish has a strong hoppy kick of lemon, pine and herbs. Lingering tropical fruit notes. Medium body, velvety and resinous mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very nice copper amber with little to no turbidity. There is a thin creamy off white head which dissipates quickly. Aromas are dominated by citrus and pine and hint at malts. Tastes full with a nice feel of the right balance of carbonation. Though it’s double dry hopped, this beer isn’t a super hoppy rendition as you would expect, rather it tastes like it smells with a caramel slightly sweet finish that quickly transitions to bitter which lasts on the tongue.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange, thin head, strong malty aromas, lot more malty than hoppy. Taste lot of crystal malt, too much for my taste. Strong bitterness that stays, probably around 100 ibu. Mouthfeel is silky to oily. To much crystal, not for hop heads, but still a great beer, recomandable.

Je doute que ce soit une bouteille fraiche. Herbacé, poivré avec des malts tranchants de caramelisation, finale amère et un brin métallique. J’aime le fond, buvabilité laborieuse.
