MattChiasson (63) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2016
Out of the bottle, poured a medium copper, slight haze, with a persistent white head. I got lots of fruity hop aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, mango and apricot, along with some grassy notes. On the palate, very refreshing with repeats of citrus and tropical fruits, orange marmalade and orange peel and caramel malt. Lingering hop bitterness but balanced by malt sweetness. Really enjoyed it!

portwood (217) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2016
Fruit jam, lemon rind, hint of pineapple. Sharp carbonation, boozy, oily mouth feel. Bittersweet, pine resin, lemon oil, very dry finish. (bottle code J2716, supposedly brewed ~Oct ’16)

Karol (882) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 11, 2016
Tapped at Bar Hop in Toronto. Clear golden copper color. Thick soapy head. Great aroma of tons of pine and fresh fermented fruits like apples or pears. Taste is very refreshing and piny plus bitter hops in the finish. Heavy mouthfeel of pine and bitter hops. Finish is dry piny and bitter hops. Alcohol present. Full body. Medium carbonation. Overall a heavy IIPA. Gona take a long a while to finish my glass.

superterp (6) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016 does not count
Tastes so good, a little milder than boneshaker with similar hops and higher alcohol. This one will make you feel nice and roasted on the couch ;)

Kauge (1649) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 8, 2016
Tap at Amsterdam. Dark translucent coppery with persistent but small light beige head. Great rings of lace. Nose of toasty and slightly jammy malts, strawberry jam, marmalade. Not exactly hoppy. Tastes really bitter, no balance whatsoever... Resin and citrus peel. As it’s completely warm the bitterness recedes against the jammy sweetness. Extremely crisp on the palate, totally unexpectedly so for an IIPA... Swirling helps. Medium body, dry finish. Not exactly the kind of IIPA I enjoy most but in itself not bad.

SlovakSniper (5275) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2016
La Double typique qui peut facilement jouer le rôle d’un vin d’orge américain. Gros corps caramélisé avec des houblons qui vont dans tous les sens. Bon sucre résiduel en fin de bouche. Texture sirupeuse qui affecte la buvabilité. Une DIPA de la vieille école.

flatmatt (1496) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2016
12 oz bottle, undated. Pours a hazy orange amber with an off-white head. Grapefruit aroma, tropical, grassy hops, some caramelly malt. Grassy hops, biscuit flavor. Seems like an older bottle, unfortunately. Still drinkable.

ChadPoole (353) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
Hoppy pine aroma. Pours copper with a light foam head. Light bitter,citrus and pine taste that goes down great. A 9% beer that doesn’t come off too strong

Canmoore (422) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
Pours a clear copper, with a nice foamy head. Aroma is of grassy hops, pine, citrus, and some biscuit. Tasting notes include pine resin, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and a malty/bitter finish. Decent IIPA.

QcBeer (150) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2016
Corps orangé avec une belle tête blanche mousseuse. Au nez, agrume, agrume et agrume. En bouche, section tranchante de houblon mais véritablement non agressante pour le palais! Zeste de citrons, note d’orange et d’agrume! Bonne amertume très intense mais non violente!
