COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle - Skunky hops with a bit of grapefruit. Hazy gold with a nice head. Tastes exactly as it smells with the spicy, earthy hop notes. Unfortunately that is it, a one trick pony with very little body as well. A decent drink but nothing to write home about.

650mL bottle, pours an opaque cloudy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is super dank, with loads of pot, earthy hops, and biscuity malt. Flavour is quite odd, with loads of super dank, earthy hops, pot, and herbal notes. The rice probably contributes to some of the weirdness. Its the dank, herbally, almost skunky notes of the hops that shine here. Very enjoyable stuff - too bad its a one-off.

Cloudy orange pour. Hoppy, fruity nose. Quite bitter, with not much malt complexity. Damn rice. Hop profile provided lots of bitterness without too much character, I found.

MrFecesious (952) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
On tap at Darby's. Cloudy orange. Aroma of fruit and resinous hops. Stuffy. Taste is super hoppy and fruity. Sticky citrus rind. Really "odd" presence but seems to even out eventually.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2013
Pours a cloudy dull orange with a thin head and some lace. Intense fruity aroma - apricot, spicy hops, a bit boozy. Huge motueka taste, thin and boozy otherwise. Strong, bitter, spicy hop finish. Thin, crisp body, good carb. Really unbalanced by really bold, and so Im not sure I care about the balance. Yum!

CapFlu (4501) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2013
(650ml bottle) Purchased at the brewery for $6.50. Pours a lasting foamy white head atop a partially cloudy orange body. Nose of highly floral New Zealand hops. Good bitterness, orange rind, high citrus. Very decent for a double IPA.
