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.

Pours light orange some head lots lacing. Nose is floral with citrus hits. Aromas of peach, Cheerios, lots of pine and citrus hops. Medium body with lively carbonation. Tastes light sweet heavy bitter. Nice.

blankboy (6067) - 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!!

TheJester (1892) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
On tap at Volo. Hazy orange with a big, sticky, off-white head. Hippy aroma - mostly citrus. The flavour has more pine than citrus, and there is an earthiness in the finish. Nice bitterness.

pootzboy (1590) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2013
750ml bottle – pours a rich hazy orange with a 2 finger white puffy cap which laces the glass unmercifully. Big aroma on this – pungent citrus-apricot bouquet over malt redolence and earthyness. Sturdy mouth feel, medium-dense body rich smooth silken rounded discernment with a bright hoppy-fruity character – for a DIPA this is rare but welcome. Flavour has a massive dose of non-cloying malt in fair balance with big pine-citrus-apricot hopping, the hopping on this big IPA is big but pleasant (85 IBU is tame by radical standards but it works here due to great balance and choice of hops and malts), no enamel-melting alpha madness here. The finish is long and rich with some increased bittering. Not a hint of the alcohol strength in aroma or flavor. The label warns against cellaring this big ale, I think that’s sound advice – you have all the elements that aging gives present in this big pale ale – smooth and rounded, alcohol hidden, good amalgamation of flavor. I suspect if you were to age this you would lose the bright citrus-apricot hoppy edge to it. All in all one of the best DIPAs I’ve sampled – big, balanced, ready to drink.

Spab (2413) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2013
On tap at the Only Cafe. Pours a cloudy orange with lasting white-ish head. Aroma is pot-like hops and caramel. Flavour is big resiny, citrusy hops with modest caramel. Easy drinking for ABV. Nice.

Draft - Pine on the nose. Cloudy orange with a thick head. Piney and a little cant sweetness, with a well balanced bitterness. Great double IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
