Pours the colour of the now defunct penny, leaving the glass awash in white lacing as drunk. Aromas of peach, grapefruit, and caramel malts. Tastes are in the realm of piney hops and more of those caramel malts. It’s an extremely well balanced brew, and definitely worth a try.

Bomber bottle from the LCBO. Beautiful caramel pour, but the hop bomb I was hoping for is noticeably absent. This stuff smells and tastes more like an American barley wine. It’s damn tasty, and smooth as silk, but I want West Coast hop punch.

Alpha10 (791) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2016
2016/05/11 - Pours a clear, medium amber colour with a thick, foamy, off white head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is lots of toffee and pine resin, notes of sweet bread and hints of orange and grapefruit. Taste follows nose; heavy toffee and sticky pine, orange, sweet bread and light grapefruit. Mouthfeel is medium to thick and very sticky with smooth carbonation and a bittersweet, drying finish. ABV is very well hidden. Sweeter than most IIPAs, but not overly sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une robe scintillante, cuivrée avec une mousse blanche qui abonde. Des parfums de caramel et des agrumes sucrés. Des saveurs qui vont dans le même sens. Une avancée florale dans cette DIPA qui me semble être davantage un vin d’orge bien houblonné. Une bouche huileuse et assez confortable. Rien de bien rafraîchissant dans cette finale à la fois résineuse et sucre d’orge. Un peu à côté de ses pompes pour un liquide qui vit en cette année 2016.

wombat23 (1621) - Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Shared 22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a foamy, long lasting off-white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, caramel, and pine. Similar taste. Has good hops and malt balance. Fairly bitter finish. Nice.

pushkinwow (2851) - Ottawa, CANADA - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle from LCBO. Clear copper with a beige head that fades to a ring around the glass. Fairly sweet and malt forward, tangerine, apricot, some papaya, ligt resin, seems more barleywine but curious how long its been sitting on the LCBO shelf...mild+ carbonation and moderate body, light booze presence, bittersweet with a somewhat dry finish.

Aroma: very fruity with some floral and bitter background; very nice; Appearance: light amber with off white head that dissipates slowly; some lacing; Taste: roundly complex with fruity, sweet, malty and bitter flavors; delicious; Palate: heavy body with long, sweetly bitter finish; Overall: really good imperial ipa; would definitely buy again.

robinvboyer (4721) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Copper pour, big white head, aroma is all pine, big sticky pine resin, with some light green hop cones. The body is oily, and sticky, a solid carb. The finish is medium bitter, some light alcohol, with some great pithy pin resin.

QcBeer (187) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Couleur cuivré pale transparente avec une mince effervescence. Une petite mousse vient recouvrir le verre. Un nez cuivré malté et très sucré. Dès l’ouverture en bouche, on y ressent une forte présence de malt caramélisé et sucré avec une touche houblonné de mangue et tangerine avec un petit coté épicé. Une petite amertume en fin de vie qui provient du malt. Trop sucré, trop lourd.

codfishh (202) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
From a bomber. Pours deep gold fluffy white head lots of lace. Aroma of tangerine some candied orange, some toffee. Flavor big candied orange flavor strong toffee caramel flavors. Balance is towards the sweet side. Big sticky resinous mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Big sticky sweet ipa well made but not my favorite version of the style.
