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.

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.

sudomorph (811) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2014
473ml can. Canned 12/22/14. Consumed 12/25/14. Pours a cloudy orange with a half finger, white head that sticks. Aroma is stupid fresh and bright. Dank citrus, pine, resin, slight earthy herbal. Fantasticly fresh. Taste is balanced. Slightly floral citrus with bread, caramel, pine, resin, and a medium, bitter finish. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Medium resin texture with a dry finish. No hint of alcohol. Overall very nice. Big simcoe and citra flavours with a nice bit of bready caramel to balance it out.

Eructoblaster (3260) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
On tap at BBB (Ottawa, ON). beautiful cloudy golden body with a thin white creamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty, citrusy and some subtle piney hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy aroma carries malty, citrusy, herbal, and some yeasty notes. Ends with a long bitter finish. Very good stuff.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Purchased from the brewery, don’t know where else you could purchase this great beer other then from the brewery. Its worth the trip tho. This is a great double IPA. Taste has great citrus hop bomb with earthy malts. Wow great job, wish I could get this at my local LCBO. Only down part is it sure dries the hell out of your mouth the next morning after having a few of these!

Bendrixian (1269) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
ABV 9.0. & 85 IBUS in can. Pours with a lively head and sports a hazy light orange colour. Aroma is big, resinous and loaded with citrus hoppy notes. Medium sticky palate but It is equally citrus hoppy and pine cones goodness with a long lingering freshly hopped finish. Lovely lovely crafted brew.

pushkinwow (2190) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
On tap at the Second Ottawa Brewers Market. Nice vibrant amber with a generous off white head. A muted wet grapefruit and resin aroma that is intriguing, some grass and a bit of malt towards the end of the nose. Moderate carbonation and full body, dry, alcohol is very well hidden although you get a bit of heat on the dry and hoppy finish. Very tasty - would gladly buy this in bottles if it made it out here.

Bottle, thanks Colin! Huge citrus hops and grapefruit in pleasing aroma . Medium orange, fluffy white head . Lovely huge citrus taste . Alcohol present and punches you in the face . Huge hop bitterness . But if a house nickel taste , not a bad thing . Long hop burn linger . Is there a better double ipa made in Ontario? Not sure . This more than holds its own with the classics . Really nice job folks .
