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.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2016
Bomber from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear orange-copper with a modest light tan head. Aroma: Quite rich, sweet, malty and hoppy, lots of red berries and pepperiness, resin/pine, deep caramel/toffee and melanoidin, a little dusty and toasty, orange peel. Palate: Medium+ body with prickly carbonation. Flav.: Quite peppery, resinous, citrusy, with some tropical fruit, big caramel/toffee/burnt sugar, so peppery; off-dry with fairly big bitterness and a long, lingering, boozy and spicy/resinous finish.

Ill stick to the non-Imperial version.

Rich copper pour with off white head. Big hop nose with sweet malt. Flavor is much the same with an alcohol bite. Finish has a nice balance of roast and hops.

beerplace (1325) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 12, 2016
Big bottle bought in BC Liquor store. Pours a clear golden amber. Aroma is ripe fruits with hoppy notes. Sweet bitterness of ripe fruits in the taste. Piney bitterness and bready notes in the aftertaste. Very good.

Fatehunter (2478) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Pours two fingers of head on a hazy dirty straw body. The aroma is rich resin, bread and a little tropical fruit in the background. The taste is moderate bitterness with a huge dose of malt, fairly bready. I like that this imperial shows off the malt side more that others. The texture is thicker. Enjoyable.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2016
650ml bottle. Orange amber in colour with a small white head, good lacing. The aroma is very tropical, citrus, some pine and malt. The flavour is juicy, lots of tropical fuits and a big hop bite, pineapple and citrus. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy. A good IIPA, not over the top but still nice and chewy.

Amber color, tons of apple pie and caramel, thick malty, but clean malty mouth. Decent

stevoj (4577) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle from On the Fly Gasmart. High quality IIPA, not exceptional but solid through and through. Pours out a medium reddish amber with frothy head. Aroma is sweet smelling malty hoppiness. Taste hits the tongue square on with tingly hop bitterness. Slick, slippery feel, but finishes quick, the only knock against this otherwise tasty brew.

Thanks to mcberko for this offering! La bire est bien orange, filtre souhait et laisse chapper de minces bulles du fond de mon verre. Le liquide est parfaitement limpide et filtr. Mousse gnreuse et off white. Bire West coast en tout point : allure lourde, collante, rsineuse et peu fruite. Je sens bien de la tangerine mais le fruit est clou au sol par cette abondance de conifres. Prsence drangeante dalcool en bouche en plus de tout le reste. Dsol, cette bire nest pas pour moi
