COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To be immodest has to lack humility and decency. With out íImmodestí 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 doesnít stop there, as it packs a wallop at 9.5% but you wonít notice because it drinks so remarkably smooth. Donít worry, your modesty isnít needed here.

pictoman (842) - 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.

"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

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 couldnít stop stealing sips from my glass, the bloody thief.

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.

Hammy78 (918) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
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 thatís great. Caramel, sweet maltiness that rounds it all out. Continue to produce bangers like this please.

Draft at Bar Volo in Toronto. Slightly hazy gumwood colored pour with solid fluffy white head. Nose and flavor are seriously good, with big preserved lemon, candied blood orange, hints of scallion, spruce, and sweet grapefruit candy. Legit imperial IPA.

473 mL can. Stupendously fresh. Pours burnished orange, hazed with hop debris, a thick white head leaves nice lace. Big tropical nose, tangerine, mango, pineapple, guava and earthy pine resin, some mild caramel maltiness. Clean, sweet malts balanced with a pleasantly bitter finish, by no stretch over the top in either direction. Full bodied and creamily textured. Some metallic/licorice-y note on the finish is really throwing me off. Might be my palate.
