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.

Beautiful murky orange body. The glass has a sudsy wash in it, as you go through the motions of drinking. Some spicy hops on the nose. Kind of like bar-b-q chips, crossed with garlic, all wrapped up in traditional citrus hop aromas. Tastes are a blend of pine, and blood oranges. A bitter start, and velvety smooth finish. Real nice, high quality brew. Pretty serious abv, so be aware when tempted to quaff this.

Kauge (1451) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 12, 2016
Can from LCBO. Canned a few weeks ago? Pours dark translucent orange with big beige-white head. Massive tropical fruit aroma, resiny, waxy. Starts off with juicy, jammy sweetness that lasts for, oh, 2 seconds, until it’s completely covered in resiny and almost herbal bitterness. A bit thin on the palate but otherwise excellent.

HippyHop (592) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2016
Nice burnt orange pour with a fluffy cap that leaves some Peter North lacing (I hope I just ruined lacing for everyone forever). Nose is lots of fresh pine, but also lots of citrus (grapefruit/orange) and tropical fruit, caramel and burnt sugar, with a nice toasted element. Super fragrant nose, though the hops are more timid than I would like (see: my stupid name). Nice sweet, chewy caramel malt with lots of citrus hop punch and a bit of spice. Not too sweet, bitter or boozy, really nicely balanced. Dangerously drinkable IIPA.

flatmatt (1415) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2016
16 oz can; date looks like April 8, 2016. Hazy orange golden with an off-white head and a few large chunks. Aroma is resinous pine, spicy, and citrus hops. Juicy grapefruit citrus flavor, resinous pine again. An extremely tasty, fresh imperial IPA here.

SlovakSniper (4815) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2016
Superbe mousse tenace sur cette robe dorée et complètement voilée. Gros nez de gazon, d’agrumes, de céréales douces, de fruits à noyau. Une maudite belle marmelade! Les houblons sont très bien jouées. Ils sont complètement adorables, très expressifs, très athlétiques. En bouche, le sucre légèrement poussé affaibli les houblons juteux à souhait. Dommage que cette impression perdure. Néanmoins, rien de bien catastrophique. Le corps huileux montre un jeu modéré à faible des bulles. La finale verte, légèrement en herbes et en résine exhibe également un exotisme doux d’une très belle puissance. Quelle belle surprise!

Draft. Golden pour, mildly hazed. Big malt backbone, juicy tropical fruity hops, fairly low bitterness, decent.

CacheManyHose (555) - HONG KONG - APR 29, 2016
Bought back from Toronto by Matt! Cloudy orange-amber with white bubbly head and good amount of sticky foamy lacing. Smells of heavy spicy resin hop, honey, booze, moderate malt and graham crackers. Taste is very very bitter, oily piney wet hop, spicier malt finish. Body is slick, bitter and stony, frothy but big and a little bit chewy at the end. Huge oily resinous IIPA with enough spicy malt to balance it. Very good.

HKdIPA (633) - HONG KONG - APR 29, 2016
Can from Toronto LCBO at home in HK. Hazy nearly opaque golden-orange pour with thick dense head. Aroma is orange fizz and pine resin with sweet malt underneath. Taste is big booze, pine resin bitterness sweet juicy boozy finish with lasting warm burn. Rich palate but not syrupy. Very bitter but also lots of orange and pine flavor. Really tasty DIPA - very big but manages to all work well together. Definitely get again.

alexsdad06 (8432) - Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2016
16 oz can from Cappy’s at home. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have big earthy, herbal hops, some green onion character, light citrus, dank character, pale toasted malts, some caramel, moderate bitterness to the finish, decent enough imperial Ipa.

jksipa (736) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Can from the LCBO. Cloudy deep orange amber with a large lingering off white head. Nose is primarily citrus with moderate pine notes and a caramel background. Flavour follows the nose with grapefruit, lemon, and pine bitterness over a lightly sweet caramel base. Medium+ chewy body with a lingering bitter finish. Alcohol is well integrated for an IIPA. 9-/4/8/4/17+
