Pour this medium-bodied Imperial IPA for a bit of snap and crackle - and plenty of hop. Brewed with Motueka hops from New Zealand, it starts dry and finishes crisp.

Bomber from the LCBO (hope it’s fresh!). Wow - that’s murky; orange, huge lasting foamy/creamy head - looks great. Smells pretty damned fine too - orange juice/zest, light resin and pine, alcohol - mmmmmm ..... Taste follows, but a bit more malt and less bitterness - still very juicy, tons of citrus in here - sneaky strong too. Average but chewy mouthfeel, mild carbonation, increasing bitterness and booze in the finsh/linger ... like like like!!

I love This beer. Great aroma, amazing mouth feel, and the taste of perfection. honestly I could drink this all day. But at 9.3% I don’t think I would make it very far lol.

Cloudy tan, bubbly head, aroma is orangey, tangerine with subtle malts and yeast in the background. Earthy and somewhat dull citrus - muted by the large amount of yeast in the glass I suspect. Unsurprisingly, I don’t get much rice.

Jaune/orange brumeux avec une mousse blanche moyenne. L’arôme des oranges et un peu (d’autre) agrumes. Le goût se resemble du jus d’orange. D’abord, il est un peu sucré, puis les agrumes (plein d’orange), puis une finale d’amertume moyenne. Très bonne!

Muddy orange-blond color with persistent creamy head. The aroma is powerful, fruity; tropical fruits, litchi, papaya. Smooth mouthfeel, round; a bit too sweet, the rice probably contributes to the lack of character; but the hopping seems well done, with the correct bitterness and a very strong fruit component.
Some elements are good, but altogether they don’t blend well. Cloying.

Thanks to Reimer96 for this. Pours cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma is citrus hop bitterness and rice. Taste is spicy from the rye and citrus hop bitterness. Rice body gives way to a nice spicy finish.

Hop aroma but otherwise light nose. Cloudy orange colour. Surprising big malt profile with good hop balance. Quite spicy aftertaste with bitterness lingering long with warming alcohol in the finish.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Pale lemony yellow, very hazy, pillowy white head that retains beautifully. Aroma is pungent green hops, slightly earthy, a little cat-pissy. Light crackery malts showcase the lovely hop bouquet, a mixture of grassy green and ripe gooseberry, some starfruit, a little dank pot. Very drinkable, aromatic hop showcase here! So much better than I expected-- seriously, who’d of thought a "rice IPA" with a cartoony label could possibly be so good! Wow, nice one P-49!
