hangunder (305) - Ontario, - MAY 10, 2013
Mainly pine, a bit of citrus, onion, sweet malt and a bit of alcohol on the nose. Not mind blowing but seems well balanced. Clear, dark copper color, quickly fading head. Taste is fairly soft, the quoted IBUs arent really coming through here. Medium bodied and low/medium carbonation. Sweet malt upfront, pine in the middle and a bit of alcohol and hop bitterness in the finish. Hop profile is quite different from the Boneshaker. A decent DIPA.

arminjewell (9575) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden orange pour with white head aroma brought notes of orange peel, grapefruit, slight stone fruit into some pine and resin, touch of biscuit. Taste was a mix of light orange, grapefruit and citrus peel into some pine, grass, slight bready notes, finishing dry, bitter, slightly boozy.

Metalchopz (3339) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2017
Pours an unfiltered, hazy golden-amber colour with a frothy off-white cap, decent stay and foamy-creamy lace. Hoppy aromas of pine, citrus zest and herbal notes. The taste is quite hoppy, but not overly dry in the finish. Goes down nicely with flavours of lemongrass oil and other citrus fruits. Hints of caramel malts. Great drinkability.

MattChiasson (71) - 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 (268) - 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 (908) - 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 (1900) - 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 its 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 (5516) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2016
La Double typique qui peut facilement jouer le rle dun vin dorge amricain. Gros corps caramlis avec des houblons qui vont dans tous les sens. Bon sucre rsiduel en fin de bouche. Texture sirupeuse qui affecte la buvabilit. Une DIPA de la vieille cole.

flatmatt (1547) - 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.
