4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I was VERY happy with this beer. Actually not overwhelmingly hoppy-- in other words, I thought this was an unusually well balanced brew. Impressive, fluffy head that took a while to recede, golden body color. That familiar aroma of pine resin and citrus, without the slightest harshness. Fairly silky palate, but with a dry, sticky finish.
Paired this bottle with a nice plate of curried lentils with feta cheese and cherry tomatoes.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

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.
