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.

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. patricks110 (2492) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015

Super piney bitter bomb. Pours with a light carbonation, orangey yellow body and a thick, sticky white head that lasts forever. The nose is pine and tropical fruits with a heavy citrus zest and grapefruit aroma. Light caramel and toasty malts blend well with a pine heavy and resin laden hop. Beautiful lingering bitterness with a touch of malty sweetness. reebtogi (6246) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2015
650ml bottle pours a clear copper color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is piny with some tropical fruits and mild caramel notes. Taste is a pine, citrus and earthy hop bitterness with a tropical fruity and light caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with some decent carbonation. Overall, this is a very well crafted DIPA, nice balance of hops and malt with bold flavours. Highly recommended for all those hop lovers out there.

Merci à Ju-Lo de m’avoir rapporté cette bouteille de la LCBO! Cheers man! Le liquide est cuivré et paraît lourd. En effet, les arômes d’alcool et de pain noir, accompagnées d’un look dense, sans effervescence et huileux ne laisse pas présager une boisson légère. Une IIPA? Vraiment? La bière est lourdement maltée, alcoolisée et houblonnée. Beaucoup trop riche et huileuse pour être une IIPA, j’ai plutôt l’impression de boire un wheat wine très houblonné. Est-ce bon? Oui sans doute. Est-ce agréable à boire? Je me pose encore la question. DomD (303) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
