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.

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 (589) - 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 (679) - 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.

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 (788) - 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+

QcBeer (134) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
De couleur jaune orangé, une belle mousse tient par dessus le liquide tout le long de la dégustation. Un explosion au nez fort d’houblon, citron et résineux. En bouche, c’est une balance entre les malts et les houblons. C’est fortement citronné et résineux avec un malt qui soutient le tout dans un équilibre les plus frappant! Une arrière goût qui tire ses épines de conifères très bien modéré! Good Drink!

Cannette . Belle couleur ambrée-orangée, mousse blanche. Arôme tropical, agrumes résine, la totale. En bouche, houblons, malt caramel, un peu d’alcool. Soyeuse en bouche, se boit très bien malgré le taux d’alcool elevé. Très bonne.

Niall73 (2419) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
Can at home - 9.0%abv. Pours amber with a white head. Big sprucy, piney aroma with sweet mango, passion fruit and a hint of red berry - nice. Medium body, medium carbonation. Caramel, pine, orange, lemon, light mustiness with some bitter grapefruit in the finish, lightly boozy with a slight, momentary, metallic thing. After the lovely aroma its a bit disappointing. A bit too sweet and slightly dull. OK.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2015
June 14, 2013 - on draught at Volo. Mostly clear and refractive slightly oily looking brassy gold with an average lasting off-white head. Aroma of alcohol, catty bitterness, light fruity malt - not over the top at all (7+). Taste - incredibly pungent and catty, big alcohol and moderate tropical fruit malt backbone - pretty solid DIPA, really - might actually be sweet, but so well hopped hard to tell (8+). Solid, almost thick body, low level but acceptable carbonation, medium boozy/pungent finish, not quite palate-coating - good damned beer.
