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.

Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, pine and light grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness, pine and light grapefruit with a crisp dry bitter lingering earthy finish.

650 mL bottle. Pours a deep amber with a thick off white head, lots of lacing here. Pine, honey, lavender, citrus and soap on the nose. Big and sweet followed by a bracing quantity of hops, big bitter finish. Waxy on the palate, lots of carbonation. Enjoyable on its own, probably better with some spicy south east asian food.

Grassy, bread aroma with a hint of citrus. Hazy, amber colour with minimal head. Light sweet taste that is quickly overpowered by heavy bitter hops. Slick texture with a long bitter finish.

Bottle. Solid grassy/deciduous tree hop aroma. Heavy hop taste that covers the extra alcohol surprisingly well. Love the hop hit on this one.

Amber in color, a bit on the dark side for how I prefer my IPAs (or double IPAs). The aroma opens with nice pine hop notes and a mild citrus character. The sweet malt comes through quite a bit. Maybe a touch of herbal hops on the back end. The flavor is just okay. Moderate sweetness with some pine and citrus peel notes providing the bulk of the hop flavor.
