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.

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.

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

pictoman (727) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
Poured from the tap. Cloudy yellow with white head. Resinous and mild citrus hops. Citrus comes through more on the flavour, mild caramel malt.

GlennHendry (73) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
"Obscene" use of Citra and Simcoe hops delivers obscene amounts of flavour. Aromas of grapefruit and pineapple give way to creamy pine notes and a solid caramel malt backbone on the way down. A truly extraordinary beer

Freaky_tiki (709) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Best drink of the night at the Rate Beer Monday Piss-Up at the Only Cafe. A beautiful cloudy orange in the glass with a thick mushy cap. The minute the can pops open you can smell that luscious citrus & pineapple hop juice aroma. A nice rich imperial IPA, with razor sharp hops & minimal bitterness. My Ratebeer comrade Helsdon couldn’t stop stealing sips from my glass, the bloody thief.

Helsdon (250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2015
Cloudy golden goodness with lots of lacing in that white head. Nose full of resins, pineapple, flower hops. Big mouth full of smooth hop happy with similar hop.

Can from the source (do something about these cans, the wrap job is nasty). Porurs an almost clear copper, nice fluffy white head, that recedes to a thin layer that is clinging to the glass walls, lacing is minimal. Nose is very sweet, caramel malt, the hops is obviously the high note (not perfume or soapy, just sweet and fruity, very balanced. Tastes bitter, grapefruit, orange, mango, citrus. The bitterness holds, that is occompanied by an ABV burn that’s great. Caramel, sweet maltiness that rounds it all out. Continue to produce bangers like this please.
