fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2011 2011-03-09, bottle from BC Liquors on Robson St., Vancouver, 8.3% ABV, 7-5-8-5-15=40
Dark amber color, hazy, with medium sized creamy head. Strong caramel aroma, some hops, light apples. Strong body, with caramel and toffee flavor, and enough sweetness; very strong bitterness, some bitter oranges and a lot of resins evident mostly in the final. Very long final. Sweeter than I remembered. Pleasantly aggressive.

2010-08-14, bottle, purchased 5 months ago, 7-4-8-5-16=40
Dark amber color, hazy, with a generous, compact and persitent head. Nice aroma, toffee and hops, the hops are green and grassy. Good body strength; it has a good toffee flavor, with some sweetness; strong bitterness, but the hopping, even if it has some qualities, is not penetrating. Still very good.

2010-03-23, draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, 7-5-8-5-16=41
Cloudy orange-amber color; nice creamy head. Nice hop aroma, less powerful than the bottled one, citrusy hops. Good toasted malt and toffee flavor, with some residual sugars on the tongue, and a powerful hopping. Very strong final, resiny, citrusy enough and a bit creamy too. Long final, excessive but well built.

2010-03-14, bottle, 7-5-8-5-15=40
Cloudy red-amber color; small sized creamy head. The aroma is light, creamy, even with scent of Belgian yeast, and timid fruity hops. Strong body, good toffee flavor, sweet, with caramel; strong bitterness, with evident resins and light fruits, citrusy hops. Solid, even if not exciting.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2009
Bright dark amber colour. Very hoppy with lots of caramel nose. Woody, light orange notes. Bitter, slightly acrid hop. Earthy. The alcohol comes in late. It loses something in translation to double size.

brokensail (10641) - 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.

daknole (8941) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2009

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle… Clear, dark amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Earthy, musky, piney aroma. Full-bodied with a mildly oily mouthfeel and light carbonation. Malty and bittersweet, the flavor provides toffee sweetness and piney bitterness. Lengthy, astringent, grassy finish.
