10/06/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 14/10/2012 (2011-258)
Deep red orange to dark amber coloured beer under very creamy yellowish head that is very stable and leaves nice lacing. Aroma: very fruity, typical tropical fruits but also sweet yellow fruits like peaches and mango. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity, bit sweet, citrus fruits providing some acidity, turning pretty bitter in the end. Aftertaste: more fruitiness, alcohol in the back of the throat while hop takes over the palate: the tongue turning very dry. Maybe a touch medicinal as with most strong IPA’s.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle pours copper with thick gold hued edges and tall tan head with some clumpy sheet lacing. The aroma offers up a slightly odd mix of citrus, cherry, spicy hops and pine. Interesting. The taste begins with a mix of pine hops and malt sweetened citrus that creates a citrus orange like hard candy sensations. To midway it gets modestly more bitter with pine and citrus and near grapefruit like hops as the sweet malts fade away. It lingers into the finish with modest citrus and pine hoppiness. Pretty decent hoppy brew. A fresh pint straight from the tap would be fun to try.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks good; a semi-transparent golden orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; hoppy and malty with an average mouthfeel. Solid beer.

33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Bruges. Rated on 16.07.2010
Aroma has lots of fruits with exotic hops and some caramel. Flavour is rather fruity with hops, some pineapple, grapefruit, caramel malt and hints of toffee. The hops make this very American and this actually has no Belgian character at all. Not that it would be a bad thing...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml. Soupy copper with narrow cream collar. Green apple and custard aroma- entirely pleasant but bizarre from a beer claiming to be either imperial or IPA. Stewed apple strudel-like yeastiness, apple juice licked off a freshly varnished table, dominant yeasty red apple peel character. Reminds me of White Shield. What happened to the Simcoe? Solid brew, but as an ’imperial IPA’...a bit flabby and ultimately an anticlimax.

I’m guessing this is what I had .. . Dark tan gold .. . Decent foam .. . Harsh chemicals, wood, and dried grass .. Not very good, why would you import a double IPA? .. . . They call it MURDA!
