3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours sparkling gold with a plush two finger cap. This is a spicy, yeasty & piney IPA. Itís thick with flavour, most of it good (deep hops & zesty yeast) & some of it not so good (a slight mineral water aftertaste). Shawna takes a sip & says its like licking a deep woods hiking trail. Overall, I really like it. Tasty, refreshing & chewy. As it settles in the glass in turns into a groovy IPA with the Belgian twist. My kind of brew. And absolutely love the label design.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a one finger white head. The nose is up front with the Belgian yeast. Wet concrete, paraffin, lemon zest, light spice. The taste starts with metallic hops, light citrus, mineral notes, spice, and considerable bitterness and leads into more Belgian characteristics, yeast, mineral notes, with lots of spice and wet concrete in the finish. A little sweet under the yeast, and hops, but itís a good effort.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Single bomber from the LCBO. Pours a rich golden colour with a frothy white head that is huge, stays long and creates loads of fluffy foam lacing. Smells like an IPA at first pour with citrus grass, but the Belgian Ale yeast comes out as soon. The mix is a fruity and caramel one. The taste is pretty sweet and the dry finish is quite low. Some decent bitterness does appear in the aftertaste. Still, canít say I am a fan of this one. Much better out there for the style, like Duvel and Chouffe ones.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly cloudy pale yellow with a fluffy off\f white head that fades slowly and leaves a bit of lace. Nose is earthy hops with citrus (mostly orange peel) and pine as well as lots of yeasty spice. Light caramel sweetness to start with the bold hops providing a great bitterness in the middle which is countered in the end with a peppery spice. Medium oily mouth with average carbonation and a long dry spicy finish. Listed here as a DIPA but listed on the bottle as a Belgian IPA. Definitely has a Belgian yeast character but the hops are enough to not make the yeast the focal point.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of mango, pineapple, pine, some citrus, white pepper and just a touch of fusel on the back. Golden colour beneath a creamy head that lasts for a while. The taste is definitely bitter balanced with topical fruit coming though. Medium to light bodied, leaving a bitter and slightly spicy after taste. Almost a winner, but just falls short in one or two areas.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 1/20
Lots of white head. Aroma of Belgian triple and grapefruit. Powerful citrus hops balanced by malty trippel with taste of honey and orange.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014/06/30 - Pours a clear, orange/amber colour with a thick, foamy, off whit head that mostly lingers. Good amount of lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, flowery hops, pine, citrus and spices. Taste is Belgian yeast, mild pine, earthy tones and mild citrus. Medium to full body with fizzy carbonation and a drying, chalky finish. Not much of a malt profile to speak of, but enjoyable nonetheless.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from LCBO. Pours clear and golden with a white head. Aroma of spice and wood. Taste is sweet and spicy with pine and resin. Medium-full body. Not bad, bit not the best Belgian IPA.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear gold, with a beautiful huge frothy head. Aroma is quite muted, but some notes of Belgian yeast and piney hops. Tasting notes include Belgian yeast, fiery piney hops, and some notes of citrus. For an Imperial IPA, there is very little in the way of hops in the palate. The Belgian yeast pairs well with the Hops, but the malt is lost in the mixture. Still a great beer, and quite complex!

650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour with large, dense white head. Aroma is big on Belgian yeast, flowers, light tree fruits and coriander. Flavour is Belgian yeast, lemon, pear, floral hops and coriander. Drying, modestly bitter finish. Rather nice.
