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 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 .

Thanks to Probst for this gem. Pours a light golden yellow with a moderate frothy white head. Aroma is big citrus hop with some subtle pine. Taste is a beautiful citrus hop bomb with a smooth earthy malts. Want more.

Pale orange pour with a thick tight white head. The nose is awesome. Juicy citrus and lemon/grapefruit. A bright fruit citrus. Assertive hoppiness and a touch of pepper. Clean malt base with a load of expressive juicy citrusy hops. Delicious.

kevinsenn (1180) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle from brewery. Cloudy amber, white lacing. Aroma of peaches and strawberries, some grassiness. Taste is sweet honey, peach, and other fruits, moving to a moderately bitter finish. A little sticky, big body. Not as good as the black version (Malevolant).

blankboy (6313) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
Draught at Volo. Pours a deep orange-amber with a small long-lasting frothy white head. Aroma is quite fruity, with lots of fruity hops, along with malt in the back and some alcohol. Flavour is also fruity and hoppy, a bit perfumy, and with some grain and alcohol. Moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2013 (Draught at Bryden’s, Toronto) Poured a hazy orange with an off-white head, sticky with lots of lace. Aroma of citrus-pine-pot hops with a bit of pit fruit, probably an interplay of the hops with a fairly hefty sweet caramel malt behind. Flavour is fairly hoppy, pine leading the citrus fruit chracters with some resiny character but there is still substantial caramel malt sweetness behind. Bitterness is fairly strong and piney from mid-palate on, though the malt carries through and it never gets terribly dry at the finish. Seemed to be just a bit of alcohol heat. Carbonation moderate, body fairly full and sticky. A pretty good big IPA, not obscene. Didn’t seem to agree with my stomach though - maybe a lot of unfermentable sugar?

750ml bottle from brewery. Pours deep golden with an off-white head. Simcoe hops stand out and deliver a beautiful taste and aroma. Really enjoy this IIPA!!
