3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Amber with orange tinges. Aromas of pine, hops, some fruit. Bitter, but well balanced. I liked the full body and lingering finish. Great beer.

Pours an amber colour with a slight orange tinge. Big white head that dissipates but leaves a healthy ring and lace covering the entire glass. Aroma is mostly pine, some grassiness, some citrus, and some sweet malts. Flavours are pine, grapefruit, grassy, earthy, dry finish. So well balanced the 8.2 abv is hardly noticeable.

On tap at O’Hares in Steveston. Golden reddish amber color. Hops on the nose. Big hops with solid malt backing on the tongue. Long, bitter aftertaste. Yum!

Pours a clear orangish amber with a nice off white hat that leaves sticky lace. Aroma is a nice burst of grassy & piney notes with some sweet malts. Taste is a lot of pine & grass with some resin, biscuit and grapefruit. Extremely well balanced for an 8% dipa.

On cask at Toronto’s cask days festival. Pour looks great with amber colouring and slight head. Aroma is strong and hoppy with citrus and pine notes. Taste was mild strong with good bitterness.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 An excellent IPA. If you like Tree?s standard, you?ll love this double!600ml bottle. Beautiful amber pour with thick off-white foamy head. The aroma hits you in the face like a trip through the pine forests of Canada! Very hoppy with loads of other complexities... citrus peel, resin, and perfectly bitter and balanced. I love this beer!

Great combination of the citrus and pine with the strong caramel malt make this an excellent example of a NW DIPA. I often find the style too strong for me, just like the spiciest of chili sauces, so it was nice that this didn’t go too far. Extreme flavour here.
