Jeepers! I can’t recall how many times I’ve had this ale and didn’t rate it! "For shame, doc! Shootin’ rabbit’s wit’ an elephant gun!". Colour... cloudy yellow-gold with a fairly thick head. Nose... imagine a cross between orchard fruits and hop cones and there you have it! Palate... lemon compote, peach cobbler and apricot Turkish Delight followed by a massive wave of sweetly-dry pineapple rind and sugar sirop. Yum, yum!

Orange notes rise from the glass with faint lemon peel. Clear copper pour with thin slightly off white head. Caramel malts start but are nicely blended with citrus hop flavor. Bitterness is very smooth. Hardly any alcohol to be found. Medium heavy body. Good DIPA - the sweetness up front is cleaned up pleasently by the bitterness.

On tap at TCBF, pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma and flavour of strong piney hops, dried fruits (apricot, orange and peach), with a strong hop punch in the finish. Most wonderful.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Tap @ Brouwer’s Cafe. Clear amber pour with a minimal white head leaving a heavy lace. Fruity/flowery/grassy nose leading into a hoppy middle balanced between bitter and flavor, all supported by a heavy body. The malt is well-integrated and tastes of honey, cocoa and possibly apple - couldn’t quite place all the elements but they were very welcome! Very impressed with my first WM, a visit to their pub is a must!

Tasted on tap at Walking Man. A great imperial IPA. Not overpowering in the hops or alcohol taste. Just a splendid mix of bittering and flavoring hops.

DYCSoccer17 (3637) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
16 ounce sample on tap at Henry’s Tavern in Portland, OR. Aroma has a fair amount of grassiness with some piney, earthy notes present. Kind of metallic and a bit sweet. Moderately hazy light amber body with a foamy off-white head and good lacing. Starts with earthy hoppiness with some grassy notes present. Becomes a little sweet with some husky tannins. Finishes with some grapefruity citrus hop flavors. Mild ethanol and pretty dry. Becomes too dry and harsh later on.

Draught at Henry’s. Malty and nice IPA with decent hops that fill out the taste. Medium body.

Draft at Uber. Peach golden with a slight haze and small white head with sticky lacing. Sharp caramel dank hopiness, apricot, dried papaya and pineapple. Sweet fruity caramel with some butterd white bread, sharp hay bitteing, and non descript tropical fruit. Smooth for 9% but flavors are a bit mutted really.

BOOM. This is what your standard of a DIPA should be. Big, juicy, and bitter, this starts out with all your favorite grapefruity/citrus bits, and blasts you with a heavy sweet malt throughout the body. LOTS of hoppy notes run all over the palate, winding around to keep that bitter edge on your tongue well after each sip. Definitely grab a pint of this if you see it on tap!!

On tap at Brouwer’s Hopfest ’09. Pours a deep amber with a small head. Nice balance, lots of ripe fruits in the aroma, which overshadow the hops a bit. Slightly malt-heavy, but still balanced enough - certainly not bad, but not outstanding.
