3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep amber colour, clear, with a frothy off white head. Aroma is of pine and grapefruit with a slight caramel malt undertone. Taste is a little sweet up front but is quickly overtaken but an intensifying bitterness. Smooth mouth feel, lively carbonation, and medium body. A nice IPA overall.
May they have sugar to their strawberries!
Piney, hoppy, bitter goodness! AWS9 (752) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2017
On tap at the brewhouse. Deep gold pour with large foamy head. Bit sticky, some toffee/caramel sweetness. Hopes are there, but not in an ’out there’ sense, which is slightly disappointing for an IPA of such purported magnitude (going by the name at least). Extra alcohol is well-hidden though, making it quite drinkable and well-balanced in the end. Good enough. Martin243 (1245) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2017
Draft pint somewhere in Ontario, and a couple of chilled bottles at our holiday apartment. Hazy russet brown with an off white skim, Marmalade on digestive aroma. Chivers Olde English flavour, spruce, and sports shoe flavour. Big bitter finish, with an alcohol kick as I noticed when I woke up on the setee confused by Canadian teleprogramming. (Long day at Niagra falls). azzurro (502) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2017
Had this one at Moxie’s tonight. Very good drink to accompany a good meal and great company, and celebrating a good news from the hospital. kerenmk (5357) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 14, 2017
Can sample at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks troubles. Clear gold with a white head. A little skunky, soft piney hops in the nose. Sweetish, slightly skunky, old hops in the mouth. Smooth, bitter, again old hops in the finish. Very soft carbonation.

Tasted this separately from a 16-ounce can purchased at an LCBO in Toronto as well as on tap at the waterfront brewpub in Toronto. Pours clear copper with off-white head and lacing. Aroma: faint brown bread and brown sugar. Flavor: malt-forward plus caramelized orange peel, nutty, grainy. Mouthfeel: full-bodied. lush. BrewWhatIWant (323) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2017
Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Taste is quite bitter with a good amount of sweetness underneath that. There are notes of grapefruit and resin up front, and a touch of malt and bubblegum. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A lot of people are saying that this beer is too bitter, I don’t think thats true. It has a lot of sweetness to balance out the bitterness, and if you are drinking a double IPA that claims 80 IBUs on the can, you should probably expect it to be fairly bitter. That being said, its not for amateurs. boto (2283) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 10, 2017
Draught at The Jason George: almost opaque golden amber color. Small off white head some lacing. Good nose. Some pineapple, citrus and other tropical hops. Taste is very good. Just a bit bitter. Pineapple, citrus and other tropical hops. Very nice! wardeinstein (1) - - MAY 27, 2017 does not count
This IPA is way too much bitter. Therefore, I can’t feel any aroma or taste expect the bitterness. miggs (1) - - MAY 27, 2017 does not count
I don't like it
It's that simple I don't understand why do I need to write 75 characters to describe how I dislike it. This note is intended for my personal use
