jksipa (204) - NEWMARKET, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a large slow fading white head that leaves nice lace. Nose includes large amounts of pine, grass and citrus with a fair amount of caramel in the background. Nice sweet malt supports a generous helping of grapefruit, lemon, pineapple and mango. There is also some spicy notes that appear near the end. Medium slick mouth with active carbonation and a long lingering bitter finish. Excellent.

blankboy (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a large long=lasting fluffy white head. Minimal lacing. Lovely hoppy aroma, citrusy and herbal, along with bready notes and tropical fruit. Flavour of citrus hops, herbal hops, tropical fruit, a hint of alcohol, bready malt and a long moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. A great DIPA, quite easy to drink, I loved it.

Beese (1139) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Draught at the Euston Tap, London on 12 April 2014. Poured a clear, pale gold, with a thin white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of straw, melon and white grape. Grassy hop flavour, with some grain and sweet mango. Finish was syrupy, notes of cooked fruit and chewy malt.

GregClow (2819) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Bright golden body with lots of carbonation and a thick white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Both aroma and flavour are chock full of citrus and tropical fruit notes - tangerine, lemon, mango, pineapple - with a mild biscuit sweetness to balance. Body is quite effervescent and refreshing, and there’s little evidence of the 7.4% abv - drinks more like 5.5% or so. Excellent!

500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a cloudy, but bright, golden colour with lots of small floaties and modest-sized white head. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruit with gentle caramel. Flavour is lemon, orange, passion fruit and grass with light caramel maltiness. Medium plus body. Carbonation on the livelier side. Nice.

HipHopOpotamus (216) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Seemed more like a normal IPA then an Imperial or Double IPA. But for 7.4% taste was well balanced and bitterness wasn’t over powering. Good beer with nice fruit flavours. The only down side, being a imported craft beer, its very expensive and there are plenty of decent to good craft IPA’s made in Ontario now that you can purchase for less money.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2014 Bottle from LCBO. Fresh citrus and tropical aroma. Hazy yellow. Floral, fruity (citrus and tropical), sweet, with a sharp bitter finish. Sticky body.

calm_dreamer (140) - GREECE - APR 16, 2014
Golden pale medium to light body without much of a head. Aroma of citrus, full of lemon. Great bitter taste of lemon, lemongrass and a caramel note. Not a long aftertaste.

w_adwersarz (59) - Cracow, POLAND - APR 15, 2014
Ładny aromat, mango, skórka cytrynowa. Kolor bardzo jasny słomkowy, piana dość ładna, fajnie krążkująca. Wysycenie raczej wyższe, z wyraźną wytrawnością.
