brokensail (9950) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 3, 2012
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.

Jayseppi (114) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
Hazy orange on the pour. Sweet and hoppy on the nose. Bitter resin and pine in the taste. Some caramel sweetness from the malt is present, but the hops heavily over power it. Slick across the palate and a lasting bitter finish.

dreamflower (480) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 22, 2012
Light and fresh aroma. Tangerine colour with a thick white foamy head. Tastes like summertime. I guess I’m learning to appreciate these bitter IPAs; I may have to go back and rerate some of them.

Appreciator (26) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
Pours cloudy orange typical of a real IPA. medium white head which mostly diminished. Inviting aromas of hops, malt, bitterness, citrus, and some grain like hay smells. Medium body with a nice bold taste. Long aftertaste with a floral, hops, bitter, acidic, taste with a complex, rich well balanced quality. Not very well versed with double IPA’s, but I really appreciated this beer.

robinvboyer (2881) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2012
650ml bottle from the lcbo. Quite dark amber pour, light citrucy hops, and quite a malt backbone. Cereals, and grains with a hop kick at the end. I think this might have sat in the lcbo warehouse too long before hitting the shelves. Quite good but not as hoppy as i expected.

Orange colour with beautiful hop aroma. Foamy white head that lingers. Punch you in the face hoppy goodness.

neongolden (329) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
(650mL bottle from LCBO) Pours a darker orange with a foamy off-white head which lingers and leaves a little lace. Aroma of toffee and caramel malts, fresh pine hops and a little citrus, all somewhat overpowered by a distinct alcohol note. Flavour is fairly complex caramel and honey malt flavours whose sweetness is cut by resiny pine bitterness and warming alcohol, meaning the beer finishes hot and dry. Mouthfeel is quite heavy and slick, with medium carbonation. A little too boozy and brash for a balanced DIPA but still tasty.

cards04 (1459) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 9, 2012
UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Pours a gorgeous burnt orange with cream colored bubbly head. A bit of orange, sweetness, and booze on the nose. Nice honey sweetness at first finishes with a nice warmth, like brandy. Slick, full mouthfeel. Dry hoppy, milkweed finish. Nice.

northropfrye (1950) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 8, 2012
Orange/amber colour with lasting white foamy head and nice lacing. Pine and honey aroma. Taste is bitter hops, honey, sweet malts, grapes. A quality beverage.

asheft (2447) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2012
[bottle at DwEEBs meeting] Pine and scotch tape aroma with some spicy melanoidins. Almost clear bronze under a thin, off-white cover. Quite bitter flavour with a nice sweetness to balance, many strawberries, and then more bitterness. Scotch tape flavour. Light body, medium carbonation, bitter finish.
