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.

Tap at Volo
Aroma citric, herbal with nettle. Malty backing. Late note of lime and alcohol.
Appearance medium white top with gold hazed base. Touch of amber.
Flavor and Palate : vegetal onion like front. Musky with hop backing. Beyond strange onion notes you will be greeted with heat of alcohol and citric hops. Could my sample be off?

750 ml bottle shared by Jon Kotyck. Thanks man! Hazed golden with a lasting white head. Huge saturated simcoe nose. Leans malts, huge hop flavour, decently bitter but itís more balanced then bitter. Really good!

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2013
A hazed golden DIPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with catnip hops, resinous and smooth. In mouth, a nice citrusy catty hops with resinous character, alcohol warmth, doughy character, mentol, very nice.

On tap at Milosí. A very nice beer thatís let down somewhat by its finish. There seems to be this really nice build in the hop profile towards something bitter and long, but it never quite gets there. The citrus flavours mix well with a hint of roasted, stout like flavours. Overall itís quite a nice beer that is just missing that "something" to make it a really great beer.

I love the sweet grapefruit and citrus aroma. Colour is cloudy and very light almost orange. Taste begins very sweet and smooth but ends a bit medicinal instead of the bitter I expected. Seems a lot like Naught Neighbour x2.

solidfunk (4013) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2013
Really lacks character. A little too modest would be my assessment. Pours clear orange without head or lacing. Smells lightly hoppy with some malt. Alcohol hidden very well, but this tastes more like a pale ale than an UPS, let alone double. Finishes a little sour. Very light palate for style. On cask at volos.

Part of a 750 ml bottle, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy amber with a nice, light tan froth. Aroma: Intense, juicy citrus mixed with odd cat pee, a big hit of pine/resin/dank, sweet, crunchy malts fighting for attention, quite sweet-smelling once you get past the hops, caramel/toffee, starting to think I donít love Simcoe... Palate: Medium+ body, fairly relaxed effervescence. Flav.: Quite juicy and fruity, still a fair bit of pine/resin/dank, more malt presence than the nose, big, sweet, crunchy caramel/toffee, a little savoury and dusty, still some cat pee, fairly intense citrus; sweet with good bitterness and a long, slightly boozy, dusty malt and pine/citrus finish.

Certainly immodest, not impeccable though. I had very high hopes and they werenít quite met. Oh well.
