COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To be immodest has to lack humility and decency. With out ’Immodest’ Imperial IPA, we achieved just that! Obscene use of Citra & Simcoe hops will atack your senses with bright citrus fruit, balanced with earthy pine notes. The indecency doesn’t stop there, as it packs a wallop at 9.5% but you won’t notice because it drinks so remarkably smooth. Don’t worry, your modesty isn’t needed here.

On tap at volo. Hazy dark orange pour, medium off white head. Huge citrus zest aroma, sweet and sticky, with thick lacing on the glass. Lots of malts, cause the beer is quite sweet, but still very bitter. This is basically i think a ramped up version of the headstock. It tastes like headstock dialed up to 11. Super citrucy, but at the same time sweet and malty. Well balanced, but a big beer, slightly boozy, but still very drinkable.

At Arrow and Loon. From a can, pours a fair amount of frothy white head and has a pale golden appearance. Fairly excessive carbonation. Dirty lacing. Aromas are quite hoppy, citrus and floral hops abound. Flavours are mainly citrus, piney and grassy hops. Also some note of floral hops. Nice bitterness on the palate, blends well with sweetness. Great retention. Good stuff.

Tasting at Matt’s, can; 9% ABV
Cloudy light amber color, small head. Nice hoppy aroma, fruity and citrusy, tropical fruits. The body is lean, the malt profile is quite good, but the hopping is weird, with too much vegetables, irn.
Seems unfresh.

500mL can, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy opaque dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very earthy and dirty, with fungal notes and earthy hops. Flavour brings out earthy and resinous hops upfront, with a touch of fungal notes. Big dry malt backbone. Not terribly complex or drinkable, but pretty solid. Good, but overrated in my opinion.

Iechyd da JoeMcPhee. Hazy golden orange pour with a frothy white head. Wonderful aroma bursting from the glass. Fruit hop gummy bear goodness. Mango, fruit hop, orange squash flavour. Overall a little sweet but a tasty brew.

A nice resin forward IPA. Orangish body, small head. Resin pineapple and mango dominate the aroma and taste. Lighter body. Nb’s best.

One of the best DIPA’s in Ontario and can hold it’s own against Heady Topper
