Metalchopz (2730) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2013
Another great product from this brewery. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with an off-white foamy head, decent retention and lots of soapy lace. Lots of sediments floating all-over as well. Aromas of fresh hop at first, but seems to be taken over by the alcohol, caramel warmth with some notes of fruits (orange, peach). Good, almost full body, with some nice mild dryness in the finish, but a better wetness all-the-way, making this one well-balanced. Easy to drink, with the hop in the taste, but not overdone. Grapefruit, malt and hints of toffee. Nice citrus zest in the aftertaste.

passion fruit and caramel. Full body, sweet malty backbone. Well balanced with just some sweetness. Alcohol well hidden.

Pours a dark copper, rust, orange color. Medium head, with some lacing. Hoppy, citrus aroma, with light odor of alcohol present. Heavy hops, grapefruit, orange peel flavor. Bitter aftertaste & linger.

Bottle. Pours cloudy orange. Aroma of pine, citrus. Taste is sharp hops, sweet and syrupy. Solid double ipa, though not amongst the best.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle 50 Cl @ Fiasco Bar, Oslo. Darker hazy amber coloured beer with no carbonation and a large off white head. Strong floral hoppy hopflowery hinted aroma. FUll palate. Finish is strong bitter herby hoppy infused. Ok but not top of the double IPAs.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
Pours hazy amber-gold with a minimal white head. Aroma is of juicy hops, with mango, lemon and pine dominating. Taste is pretty malty-sweet, medium-bodied, with slight caramel notes but no hugely discernable malt character. There is a substantial and nuanced hop finish, clean and citrusy. I would prefer this a bit drier and with more carbonation, but the hop character is really great.

Roasty smell for an ipa. Roasty Taste brings up the hops which is sharp but not invasive. Hops fade a little to back to sweet roast. Bitter hops aftertase. Very solid dipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The two captains looks lovely. A nice foam head. There is an earthy pine scent, with hops, citrus, and malts. I taste hops, citrus, sweet malts, and barley. The drink has a mild bitterness mixed with a slight malty sweetness. Overall it is a good brew. It will impact the palate mildly too.
