Kauge (1706) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2016
Second bottle, from LCBO, first one was drunk by the towels off the floor, the lucky bastards. Anyhoo, now that Ive had the pleasure of actually pouring it and not dropping it on the floor (while completely sober, I might add), it appears deep, almost coppery amber, clear, with rather thick creamy white head. The aroma is... indicating this ones going to be a bitter hop bomb... Extremely resiny, oily, citrus peel, etc...Tastes mellower, yet still resiny, hop oils and citrus peel, but the loads of malts (as seen in the deep dark colour) really balance the hops nicely. The result is a bit desserty - massively sweet, biscuity, fruity, but also, as said, very citric and resiny... Basically thats how I like my DIPA-s. And the alcohol is fairly well hidden. Soft and full on the palate with extremely fine carbonation not without a certain fizziness. A lovely brew. Admittedly not amongst the most refined or elegant DIPA-s but certainly very enjoyable.

Very bitter and hoppy. Dank fruit. Dark copper pour from 22oz bottle in Banff. Not bad. A big mouthful for sure

flatmatt (1514) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2016
22 oz bottle; unknown date. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Light grassy and citrusy aroma. Flavor has a mix of spicy, citrus, and grassy hoppiness, even a little tropical fruit, over some biscuity malt. Its pretty good, really.

QcBeer (158) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Un nez malt caramelis qui domine ici le houblon! Couleur cuivr mtalique et trs bien transparente! Un petit col sur la paroi du verre sans trop deffervescence! En bouche cest sucrment malt avec une petite dose de houblon qui vient adoucir un peu/pas trop, le tout! Cest riche, trop riche, a bourre. On ressent une lgre amertume en fin de vie!

ChadPoole (380) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2016
Pours deep copper with a nice size off white head that laces the glass. Good aroma of hops, pine and citrus. Strong taste of hops with side notes toasted wheat and a citrus fruit bitterness. Great beer.

guil0000 (408) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 14, 2016
Pours a clear copper color with a large tan head. Nose is extremely piney with a bit of dark cherry fruit and a bit of brown sugar. Faint smell. Not much to it at all. But its still kind of intriguing. Dry on the mouth at start then you get a fruity sweet mouthfeel and you end up with dry pretty hoppy finish. Very pleasant taste. Medium to full body. Very good

Middle aged man just built a new house and put a beer tap in. Christened it with "10 bitter Years" from Black Oak. Heady stuff that bites, smooths out with a tangy twang and then mule kicks you in the arse. On my way for my 2nd 30 Litre container of communal comfort.

650 ml bottle. Pours a clear deep golden-pale amber with a resilient white head. Aroma is fruity (grapefruit, lemon, lime), pineapple, green tea and spices. Flavor is fruity, sweet (caramel), green tea. Finish is grapefruit, pineapple, soft lemon, spice, green tea. Slightly herbal flavors lingering. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel and average carbonation.

Brought down from Toronto at the biggest LCBO ever. High in hops, high in alcohol, pretty easy to drink - this could get dangerous/interesting. Would definitely get again.
