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.

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?

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.

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy orangish copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrus hops, grapefruit and light pine. Taste is a sweet malty caramel, grapefruit hops, citrus rinds and slick bitterness on the finish... Great balance for a 9.5 percent iipa.

Growler from the brewery my good friend Erik shared with me and tasting at the brewery. Overall the best IIPA I have ever had. A perfect balance of malt and hops. Fantastic aroma of citrus and grapefruit hops, malt, caramel, bitterness. Taste is even better than the aroma. Super refreshing for an IIPA. Citrus, grapefruit and floral hops extravaganza balanced with top malt flavor. Alcohol almost completely hidden. Very easy to drink and hence very dangerous ;).

On tap at volo. Hazy dark orange pour, medium off white head. Huge citrus zest aroma, sweet and sticky, with thick lacing on the glass. Lots of malts, cause the beer is quite sweet, but still very bitter. This is basically i think a ramped up version of the headstock. It tastes like headstock dialed up to 11. Super citrucy, but at the same time sweet and malty. Well balanced, but a big beer, slightly boozy, but still very drinkable.

At Arrow and Loon. From a can, pours a fair amount of frothy white head and has a pale golden appearance. Fairly excessive carbonation. Dirty lacing. Aromas are quite hoppy, citrus and floral hops abound. Flavours are mainly citrus, piney and grassy hops. Also some note of floral hops. Nice bitterness on the palate, blends well with sweetness. Great retention. Good stuff.

fiulijn (17458) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Tasting at Matt’s, can; 9% ABV
Cloudy light amber color, small head. Nice hoppy aroma, fruity and citrusy, tropical fruits. The body is lean, the malt profile is quite good, but the hopping is weird, with too much vegetables, irn.
Seems unfresh.

mcberko (11165) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
500mL can, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy opaque dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very earthy and dirty, with fungal notes and earthy hops. Flavour brings out earthy and resinous hops upfront, with a touch of fungal notes. Big dry malt backbone. Not terribly complex or drinkable, but pretty solid. Good, but overrated in my opinion.

Iechyd da JoeMcPhee. Hazy golden orange pour with a frothy white head. Wonderful aroma bursting from the glass. Fruit hop gummy bear goodness. Mango, fruit hop, orange squash flavour. Overall a little sweet but a tasty brew.

A nice resin forward IPA. Orangish body, small head. Resin pineapple and mango dominate the aroma and taste. Lighter body. Nb’s best.
