A prototype IPA which features a huge malt profile from Maris Otter malt as a backbone, and massive amounts of Cascade & Amarillo hops. The hop flavour and aroma are huge as well as the hop bite. This is not a beer for those afraid of character.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, - SEP 8, 2012
Sampled at the GCBF. Quite hazy, nose has no bitterness or tartness whatsover, only sweet tangerine and malt. Flavour is a tad more bitter and the fruit comes through. A very average IPA, offers nothing special; if you take the average balance of bittering and aroma hops, this is slightly tipped toward bittering, but it’s not particularly strong.

Alankabatoff (7) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2015 does not count
An English style IPA that is very well balanced. Malty but a nice finish. The smell is malts, raisin cake, ginger bread. Taste is malt forward, semi sweet, bitter but pleasant finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerAndPonies (128) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2015
Pint on tap at Local Public Eatery, downtown Medicine Hat. Poured a brownish-ruby hue with very little head. Slightly dusty floral and piney hops, with astringent grapefruit, and some light malt wandering in-between. Thin-bodied; short, clean finish. Good, although I’d hoped for a fresher, broader hop profile.

Draught. Clear dark amber pour, fine medium head. Aroma is lots of pine hops, some citrus, lemon. Taste has a decent malt base with a good bitter finish. thicker body with low carbonation.

MunBro (896) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
Dark amber pour with little head and specks of lacing. Very malty for an IPA, overly so compared to the hops. More of an amber for me than a citrusy IPA. Not bad overall though.

Heavy ipa with dark colour and bold hop flavour. A thick ipa with low carbonation. The hop flavour is not very bright. A true ale but a bit muddled. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Aroma is lemon grass, citrus, some mild earthiness and sweet malts. Taste is bitter up front with a bitterness that finishes pretty smoothly with light tartiness. Body is a cloudy and somewhat dark one with a pearl white head that is thick, frothy and retains very well.
