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.

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.

This Imperial Rice IPA has it going on in all the right places. A mildly ricey taste, moderately hoppy with New Zealnd hops (IBU 70), and 9.3% alc/vol (although no alcohol could be detected during the consumption of this brew).

[6001-20131023] Tap. Caramel orange aroma has a strange herbal note to it. Hazy, orange body with a quick foamy white head. Hoppy sweetened leaves and citrus lychee notes in the flavour. Medium body. Lovely, great balance of fruit and hops and bitterness. (9/4/9/4/17) 4.3

DuffMan (7836) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
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!

mgermani (1002) - 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 I’m not sure I care about the balance. Yum!

CapFlu (4762) - 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.

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.

Bomber. Pours translucent dark gold with white head. Nose is tropical fruit, earth, I’ve heard moteuka described as spearmint not sure what hops they’re smoking. Flavour is about the oily hop resins with citrus and tropical fruit, no idea what the rice does here, had it in a bunch of lagers and can say it adds to the crispness and dryness but this was neither. Didn’t know how much I’d enjoy this, was pleasantly surprised.
