DuffMan (6552) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie and Grippitis. Hazy orange with a dense golden head. Heaps of ripe tropical fruit hop character, a bit sticky, moderately sweet malts. The bitterness isn’t crushing, but there is a decent balance here. Enjoyable.

Draft. Nice orange amber with a frothy white head. Lasting hoppy finish. Bigger medium to lighter full body. Heavy bittersweet. Like a dense mango, tangerine fruitiness. Citrus. Caramel. Some spiciness. Moderate plus bitterness. Pretty good.

reebtogi (4103) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
650ml bottle pours a lighter amber color with a generous off-white head that has decent retention and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and pine with some fruity notes. Taste is a citrus and pine hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A pretty solid DIPA that is definitely worth checking out.

pintbypint (2565) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
650ml brown bottle. Copper coloured brew with a frothy white cap and nice lacing. Nose has tropical fruit, bit of resin and pine. taste has light malts, tropical fruit and pine hops. Finishes with a medium bitterness with pine, grass and citrus lingering and a bit of alcohol late. Medium body. Overall a good imperial IPA, pleasant but not super intense, lots of fruity Galaxy hops.

greenhorn1 (803) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 18, 2014
On tap at Tapas and Beer in RSM. First, I was surprised this was 9% ABV. Good double IPA, however, pretty basic. Nice bitterness, grapefruit and pine. Good pucker on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
