COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This famous big boy beats your taste buds into submission, count them one, two, three dry hop additions. Once you’ve been taken hold from your first sip the powerful hop aroma and huge malt flavours will make your knees weak, but you’ll be begging for more.

Rating #970 - Feb 12, 2014 - $7.99CAD for a 650mL bomber from Sherbrooke. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white foam, spotty lacing. Nose is peach mango, mild grassiness. Mouthfeel crisp, medium-heavy alcohol warmth, low-medium carbonation. Taste is sweet tangerine, lemony notes with the spicy tang and hoppy bite, lots of cool pine/resin sticky hop notes too. Rivals Central City’s DIPA for best Canadian DIPA.

I would have liked to have a stronger aromatic kick for this brew. It was a refreshing IPA

Aroma is citrus rich hops and a nice earthiness. Slight sweet malts here aswell. Taste is a fairly pronounced bitterness that finishes smoothly. Appearance is a clear gold with a medium pearl head that retains well.

Deep clear copper body complete with a thick crown floating on top....... looks yummy! Taste pretty good...... kind of light for a double but still yummy. Not sure what hop this is but reminds of Nelson Sauvin hops. Easy to slam but..... but...... but I’m not excited. Bitterness builds, flavor lingers. Purple grape, lemon, mild leather, ends with a touch of soap. Malty and full flavored. Random words and sentences makes lame reviews longer then they seem. Sweetness builds to much, gets to sweet, I need insulin. Low alcohol and descent price point makes me want to buy this all summer long for a casual drinker................ but I’ll still most likely just buy 100 HOP STUPIDS and giggle my self to sleep. Tee Hee Hee..................... ZZzzzzzzzz

Has a very citrusy hop nose,neither a malt background notes of grapefruit and lemon on the nose. Coppery gold in colour with a lacy white head that doesn’t really last long. Medium sized bubbles and a medium high carbonation. Has delicious balance in hops and malt, hood are a woody, earthy tasting delicious blast on the tongue, then followed by a delicious Carmelly toffee-like malt character.. Very nice balance for a big beer, overall a very pleasant beer that I would session, but others might think was a special treat lol

Pours a hazy redish amber with a thin pearl head; light but steady carbonation. Excellent hoppy aroma of citrus and resin. Taste is Malty.. like toast... not too sweet, warms to a nice citrus hop bitterness. Finish is of a nice grassy hoppiness. Quite nice, an excellent example of a IIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650ml bottle pours hazy Amber with off white head, some lacing. Aromas are nice with citrus and tropical fruits. The taste starts nice but leaves you hanging a little, good hop flavor but didn’t leave a nice finish.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Tastes OK ... but it’s too malt forward and sweet, and its hop presence is too muted. Syrupy and sticky texture. Hazy yellow-orange with a quickly dissipating head. Lots of hard-candy flavors, plus some caramel and toffee. Hop notes are mild, earthy and only slightly zingy. Sadly, I lost interest halfway into my glass.
