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.

Looks like a beer, clear amber small cap. Big smell, bubble gum, citrus, almost pine...... strong but dull does that make any sence. I hate speeling correctly. Taste also dull but full. Soap, thick, resin, flavourless bitter.............. very drinkable but way below average.

Couleur dorée avec une tete assez résistante. Aromes d’agrumes, herbes, floral, résine. Les premières gorgés sont plutot agréable jusqu’a se rendre compte que cette bière est beaucoup trop acre et on s’en lasse rapidement. Correct rien de plus...

lesifflebiere (1350) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Blonde complètement limpide (dépôt important en fond de bouteille, par contre), mince et à grosses bulles, avec un nez très fruité, un mélange de fruits tropicaux et de raisins bleus. La bouche est passablement amère, mais toujours aussi fruitée qu’annoncée ; l’alcool est agréablement discret. Une double IPA assez classique, mais pas charmante parce que trop sucrée, trop âcre et pas assez originale. Au final, elle est bonne mais sous la moyenne.

Bottle into snifter. Pours a clearish golden colour. Aroma is jammy. Taste is tropical fruit juicy with nice bitterness from the hops. Pretty good beer. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

650 ml bottle in mug during camping trip. Frothy off white head. Nose is tropical fruit. Mango and citrus. Good amount of malty sweetness. Taste is a bit metallic. Strong hoppy bitterness and malty backbone. Lots of citrus and grapefruit. Great mouth feel!

I’ve grow to really enjoy double ipas. Citrus flavours and aroma and the head is thick and lacy. Really good beer.

22oz bottle pours a clear gold with some attractive, lacing white head. Nose is fairly approachable, big citrus, juicy grapefruit, tangerine, straw, soap, pine. Flavor follows right along, very piney and soapy, a little sappy, some grapefruit, meyer lemon, straw. Big, bitter finish. Solid.

650ml bottle in a tulip. Pours golden/amber with a lacy, white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and caramel malts, a little toast, some dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness, but a very weird finish. Average texture. A decent beer but the weird finish ruins it.
