Bouteille 650 ml. 8.5%. Couleur ambrée-orangée violée, mousse blanche mince. Arôme de houblon, agrume et un peu de céréales. En bouche, fraîche, malt caramel, houblon, beaucoup de saveurs de houblons, copnifère, agrumes, herbes. Finale avec un peu d’amertume. Très bonne. IIPA.

It tastes like treacle, figs and currants. And pineapples, grapefruit. It;s also got a weird eucalyptus taste. Surprisingly sweet (but not cloying or syrupy). Very close to barleywine

Ferris (4126) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle - Citrus and pine and some biscuit. Clear orange with a thick head. Piney with a significant hit of bitterness and a bit of alcohol. Very dry finish with the bitterness lingering. I remember this being much better when I first had it, I may have a bad batch.

Quevillon (2501) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
650 ml bottle purchased at the LCBO on Rideau and King Edward (Ottawa) on March 1, 2013. Dark orange, medium head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops, a little sweet. Taste of herbs and pine hops, dry alcohol, not very bitter. A little better than their IPA, just a little!

Canmoore (256) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle from the LCBO, this beer pours a cloudy golden colour with a thick frothy head. The aroma is of thick citrus and malty notes, the taste is delicious with a citrus and pine hop notes. Behind all that hoppy goodness, is a malty backbone that offers some delicious thick caramel malts. This is a great double IPA, and I will definitely try again!

rodenbach99 (3158) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2013
Une bouteille de 660ml. Version à 8,5% bouteille peinte inscrite Limited Edition. Cette bière est cuivrée foncée avec une mousse beige. Le nez est simple mais efficace avec du caramel et des houblons francs. La bouche est sucrée mais pas disproportionnée, le malt supporte les houblons. La finale aurait pu être un peu plus amère, mais cette bière fut un régal pour accompagner le boudin noir.

SlovakSniper (3161) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2013
Une bouteille de 66 cl. Version à 8.5% d’alcool. Une robe orange foncée. Un col mousseux bien tenace qui fabrique une large dentelle. Un nez qui suinte les malts roux et qui respire des houblons fait de notes de pin, d’herbes grasses et d’oranges confites. Un alcool mentholé dans les entrailles du liquide. Des saveurs houblonnées et amères qui progressent dans un alcool floral et poivré. Des céréales caramélisées qui arrivent au bon moment. Une bouche assez ronde avec une belle prestation des bulles. Une texture huileuse. Une finale amère, florale, résineuse, longue et assez intense. Une double bien roulée et plutôt facile à boire.

Nice sticky bitterness to the palate. Aroma of alcohol and pine. Molasses butter and tylenol to the taste.Very bitter, balanced by sweetness, but the dull sweetness that’s only a backnote which i very much prefer. I enjoyed this bottle much more this year than last. And for the price, I’m considering stocking up!

hangunder (233) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2013
Slightly muted aroma, oniony/catty hop sweet smelling aroma. Dark brown, hazy, white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Flavor shows a lot of hop character, piney and tropical, with a malty middle and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Pine aftertaste. Not that assertive in terms of bitterness compared to other DIPAs. Medium bodied, medium carbonated. OK.

Tree Brewing's regular Hop Head is very tasty, so there's surprised that this is twice as tasty! Strong hoppy bitterness that unfolds with settle citrus undertones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
