4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich golden pour with an extravagant head. Citrus aroma with grapefruit and orange giving way to a little stickiness and some floral notes. This beer is fairly bursting with flavour and if not for the small boozy kick at the end I’d never know it was a 9.4 per cent double IPA. Terrific beer

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy, amber/orange appearance with a small off white head and nice lacing. Aroma starts off with resin and grapefruit then fades to floral. Unique, complex flavors as notes of tropical fruit mingle with the West Coast hop characteristics while the malts add a grainy edge in the aftertaste. Full bodied, dry, well carbonated mouthfeel with an expansive alcohol fueled finish. Enjoy by 02-14-15 bottling.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a 500ml bottle (Enjoy by 2.14.15) on 7/2/2015 (just in time!), shared by Butz with thanks. Pours a clear golden with a medium head. Has a lovely tropical floral IPA nose to it. In the mouth, there’s lots of sweet citrus (orange, mandarin) and stone (apricot, peach) with some light malt. The bitterness is sticky and resiny, but the sweetness holds sway in the end. Has a syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Super drinkable for a double - you’d never pick it as 9.4% blind. Just a really harmonious, almost subtle double IPA, which is enormously enjoyable. Refreshing isn’t a word you’d usually associate with this style but it applies here.

Bottle from Brewdog Brum. Cracked open and drunk to celebrate the birth of my son. Beautifully deceptive DIPA: totally sneaks up on you. Thin, sticky and tasting like a lime biscuit cut with salt. Moreish. Incredibly delicious smell.

Enjoy By 02.14.15. (BOTTLE)Wow on tap and bottle in Edmonton! Looks like beer. Feels fizzy, carbonation stings the mouth. Resin, pine, peach, not overly sweet. Fuck this bitter, pallet is destroyed after a few sips. Amazing brew. Dry but full. Pepper. Doing this review while watching episode 1 season 4 of GOT....... ya I’m a year behind. Beer has no faults.... not perfect.... but no faults.

Nearly perfect Double IPA. Lemony resiny aromas give way to pineapple flavors with a dry finish.

2/2/15 pour from bomber of 02.14.15. Hazy yellow Amber without much aroma. A little piney and citrus but a little unbalanced toward malt side. Did a side by side taste test with Pliny The Elder and Pliny had a better aroma and more balanced taste.

02-14-15 from 22oz. bomber into a room temperature pint glass. Nose and taste bursting with delightful floral, citrus, and pine aromatics, with just the right amount of actual bitterness to balance the bouquet. Remarkable mouthfeel for an imperial over 9% ABV - doesn’t feel sticky or overly mouth-coating at all. So tasty and so drinkable -watch out!
