COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a BIG beer. Mind Blowing ammounts of hops give this beer tons of flavour and aroma. Not for the faint of heart. The big mean cousin to the original Phillips IPA.

QcBeer (128) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2016
Couleur dorée clair et 100% transparente avec une belle effervescence et une mousse blanche somptueuse et riche. Un nez d’abricot, de citron, de pèche. Dès l’entrée, un malt caramélisé prononcé, une légère touche herbeuse et citronné avec une finale assez amer. Bien!

568ml can. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, slightly raw and skunky, some sweetness of candied fruits, bakery spices. Taste is slightly skunky and sweet, with tropical fruits bitterness. Strong piney bitterness aftertaste. Good one, but slightly "dirty" beer.

DomD (250) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle into glass. Aroma of citrus and hops. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a good amount of head. Heavy bitter taste as is expected in a double IPA. Full bodied with slick texture and most definitely a bitter finish. For some reason the aroma wasn’t that great but other than that it was quite good.

kaser (5547) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Orange pour with white head at hop in brewpub in Calgary. Very fruity and bitter. Citrus. Orange. Grapefruit. Not bad.

BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
650 ml in Phillips’ unusually-shaped, quickly-narrowing neck bottle,from Real Canadian Liquorstore, served in my Great Western 590 ml convex glass. Pours an orangey-amber shade with generous fine, slow carbonation and a smooth milky cap that holds together like dense, top-notch meringue. Loads of bright grapefruit, orange, and citrus with a side of fresh piney hop notes on the nose; on the tongue, juicy citrus and tree fruit in spades with only after-sip bitter touches. Smooth, silky, and clean-finished with that refreshing little bitterness to swipe the palate clean. A simple-profiled but smashingly enjoyable DIPA that even the hop-naïve can love.

courtesy of fiulijn - pours a murky amber-orange beer with a little foam left; a solid hop presence showing notes of honey and caramel; full-bodied, sweet and fairly bitter; long hoppy finish of caramel, peaches and resin

RobBestwick (823) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle. Strong citrus lime aroma. Pours with a medium golden hue and big frothy white head. Powerful hoppy flavours with sharp notes of lemon and lime. Full bodied with a bitter finish with a warming alcohol feel as well. Good IPA.

Reeko (50) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2015
Pours a nice cloudy golden color with I nice white head. It has that thick double ipa aroma. Watch out taste buds. Very bitter and hoppy. A bit of tropical citrus with a grassy finish. This is one of my favorite double ipa’s.

Psytron (1875) - Turku, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Smell of citrus. Golden colour, very high white head. Aroma of spruce, hops, grass. Bitter. Surprisingly not oily. Plentoful carbon.
