My Bottom Line:
Oranges, flowers and resins ride alcohol and hefty sugars in this oily Imperial IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A frothy head of foam tops the murky orange.
-Alcohol is a bit too prominent for my tastes in the style.
-Even though they used a lot of rice in here to dry the body out, it seems they’ve also thrown in a healthy dose of caramel malts... In any case, the body is not close to feeling dry, sadly...
-Drinkability is understandably low.
-Hops could be brighter in the flavor profile. But this bottle may not be the freshest too... No way to tell since there is no date on the bottle...
-The finish is rather limp for any kind of IPA.
-Execution and clarity-wise, this is far from the quality of Flying Fish’s own Rice Imperial IPA.

650ml bottle. Hazy dirty golden body, medium beige head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of oranges, flowers, apricots, pineapple. Taste is on the sweet side: orange liquor, floral hops, pineapple. Enjoyable, but sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet malt notes with quite a bit of residual sugar is offset by some floral citrus hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by loads of residual sugar with some citrusy hoppy notes. Boyd is full with limited filtration and medium carbonation. Too much residual sugar for my own taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Pours an opaque orange with a thin, off white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with notes of bread, caramel, rice I’m guessing, pine, tropical fruit, and a hint of resin. Taste is bitter with lots of resin, pine, and bread, with milder notes of caramel and a alcohol taste and warmth. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Resiny/syrupy in the mouth but still drinkable with a dry finish. Overall pretty tasty and interesting. Bready with lots of resin, tropical fruits, and alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big bottle in a stem glass. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of citrusy and fruity and floral hops, some pale and light caramel malts, hints of dough, and some alcohol. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness that is sort of taken away from by the alcohol on the finish. Average texture. If this beer wasn’t so alcoholic, it’d be great.

Bel couleur dorée trouble avec un col blanc assez résistant. Une DIPA axé sur l’alcool,agrumes,résine,floral. Respectable mais sans plus.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014/10/11 - Pours a hazy, burnt orange/amber colour with a thick, soapy, off white head that slowly reduces to a lingering surface film. Moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, tropical fruits, citrus fruit and a touch of pine. Taste follows nose; sweet caramel malts, mango, peach, orange and mild pine. Mouthfeel is oily with low carbonation and a mildly warming finish (even though the booze taste is not present). Enjoyed all of the flavours, but I think the beer would have beer more enjoyable with more/sharper carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours very hazy orange, thin dense white head with some lacing. Aroma of mango, resin, peach, plum? Body fairly thin for a big beer (rice has it making sense), mango up front followed by some pine, grapefruit, gets boozy fast, finishes fast, and fairly clean, given how boozy it is only moments before.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from LCBO. Aroma of resin, pine, and some citrus. Booze as well. Taste is quite sweet, with light fruit notes (peach), and a clean finish with no booze or bitterness. Smooth body. Drinkable, but not my favorite 2xIPA.
