Tasted on tap at Tofino Brewing Company. Even better than their IPA. More hops, more citrus, double plus good.

Ferris (12675) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle - Caramel and nice hoppy notes. Cloudy gold with a rich beige head. Sweet resiny notes with a nice caramel and bitter finish. Solid.

650ml bottle. Hazy amber with small white head. Massive mango/orange/grapefruit aroma. All citrus and pine hop -- smooth caramel malt hides in the distant background. The bold flavours and easy mouthfeel hide the ABV at first, but the 9% makes itself known after a few sips. Though not so much for balance, still a bold and tasty beverage.

fiulijn (19096) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver
Orange to light amber color, bright, hazy, with compact generous head. Aroma of dusty malts, a bit of sweat, puke; nothing fascinating. Lean body; caramel flavor, at least itís not heavy or chewy, moderately sweet; strong bitterness, but the hop qualities are quite dull, dusty; there is just a hint if citrus, and a lot of hop resins.
Good beer, unexciting DIPA.

pictoman (933) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
Poured from 650mL bottle. Pale, brownish orange with off-white head. Mild biscuit malt with resinous hops and subtle citrus hops. Alcohol well hidden, flavour dissipates fairly quickly.

Lagerboy (1930) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Bomber. Unclear orange, off-white foam fades. Tropical citrus grapefruit aroma. Bitter grapefruit, tropical fruit hop taste dominates, some evergreen, smooth backseat caramel malts. Soft carbonation, light-medium bodied, more aggressively hopped. ABV is extremely well hidden. Citrusy bitter finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish amber, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Soft citrus and pith aroma.   Moderately hopped on the tongue, but neither strong on bitterness or big in maltiness.   Comes across as less than a Double IPA, perhaps more like a 1Ĺ IPA.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes like it started, like a moderate IPA.   Canít tell this is 9%, which is nice.   Decent, well built, but doesnít seem bright or heavy in the sense that most Imperial IPAs would be.   Thanks to the guys at Bottleworks for sharing!

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - OCT 29, 2013
Bomber. Much better packaging than their regulars... since thatís (sadly) more important than the actual product I hope this is a trend. Pours light amber, white head. Nose of pine resin, grapefruit. Flavour is a metric shit tonne of pine resins, orange, grapefruit, some hop petrol, caramel. Nice beer! A real 3.5-er, lol.

Gerbeer (3128) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours amber with light head. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, and toffee with malt backdrop. Flavors of pine and orange. Quite bitter. A good hoppy IPA but getting a bit yesterday and is off balance.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquors for $7.90. Pours a small white quick-dissipating head. Nose of ripe Seville oranges. Funny drinking this as itís very similar to Phillips Amnesiac yet has a slightly stronger hop presence. Great medicinal alcoholic finish.
