mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a hazy copper with a thin off-white head and a nice, spicy hop aroma. Strong malt backbone - light sweetness and definite toastiness - with more great spicy hops. Bold yet nicely balanced - very fresh tasting. Moderate body with decent carbonation - I think I kicked up a bit of sediment in my second pour (the remainder of the 650ml bottle) which caused it to be a bit creamer than intended, but no complaints. Very solid local offering - and I love the freshness!

Deeper orange body with little or no head. Nose of very tart citrus orange. Very citrus, Seville orange and marmalade. Lasting bitterness through the finish. Somewhat dry. Thanks Alex. Boston Round.

Oakes (12373) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Hazy light tan. Aroma is light mandarin, bit biscuity and earthy. Balanced character, little bit of bitterness in the finish and biscuity mellow maltiness up front.

Draught @ Vancouver Craft Beer Week Festival 2014, Vancouver, BC

Malty, caramely and hoppy DIPA with some pine and resinous notes. Okay.

vadie (670) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
Jaune brumeux avec un col blanc. L’arôme du pin et houblon. Pas trop sucré pour un impériale. Le goût es d’houblon du début au fin. Simple mais bonne.

Ferris (3899) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2013
Draft - Fresh sweet pine. Clear gold with a thin white head. Very resinous and dry, but a well balanced bitterness. Nothing spectacular but very solid and easy drinking.

Boston round from the brewery. Pours a glowing golden orange with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma: Super fruity. Grapefruit, orange, hints of banana, cherry. Subtle hints of spice - cinnamon, cloves. Palate: thick bodied, smooth, fizzy, long finish but not too dry. Taste: Sweet start. Subtle bitterness in the finish. Really really nice. Reminds me of a lot of the Scandinavian IPAs I’ve had.

Sampled at HOPoxia 2013. Hazy copper with frothy head. Toffee, caramel syrup, grapefruit, pine and resin. Chewy, earthy malt body with potent, slightly medicinal bitterness. Sharp finish. Bright aroma; fresh, organic taste. Bold.

RumRunner101 (766) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
Dark amber pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, grapefruit. Full bodied with a great silky mouth feel. All malt at first with loads of caramel and toffee. Pine and grapefruit comes out mid palate. The finish is quite bitter with a bit of lingering sweetness as well. For me the hops don’t cut the sweetness enough making it a bit messy.

650mL bottle, pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma is on the maltier side for a IIPA, with syrupy caramel malts, resinous hops, fresh red fruits, and some citrus fruits. Flavour is extremely fruity and malt-heavy as well, with under-ripe berries, syrupy caramel malts, and then some citrus and resinous hops fight their way to the front. Something doesn’t mesh so well here - the under-ripe berries are quite pronounced and the malts are quite syrupy. The hops aren’t that far forward - perhaps not enough were used to balance the malt? Anywho, it’s decent, but quite flawed. Good local attempt at a IIPA, but needs refinement.
