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.

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.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
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.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 8, 2013
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?

blankboy (6277) - 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.

Ferris (5008) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2013
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

solidfunk (4493) - 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.

Eructoblaster (3120) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
On tap at BBB (Ottawa, ON). beautiful cloudy golden body with a thin white creamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty, citrusy and some subtle piney hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy aroma carries malty, citrusy, herbal, and some yeasty notes. Ends with a long bitter finish. Very good stuff.
