So, I’m thinken this label looks like the one on fat tire, but it has some individual on the bike with her legs up in the air. As i get closer I see its not fat tire, you know I haven’t had that yet. Pop this metal conatainer and wahllah. Big dull bitter taste sensation following a dull hop olfactory. On style all the way. Its like I’m biting on a natural rubber old time o ring er sumthin. Pine tar sappy, hand soap bitter, chewing on one week old green grapefruit rinds. Better to have given this to one of you hop loven addictions, which the majority of you are, admit it. Rocky floating island thing for a head thru the session, which was poured from a can, how american is that, eh? One big bitter thick oily soapy experience from start to finish, this must be douple imperial india pale ale, heheh. Yes, no wonder it rates so doggon high on this site. Perfect example of a rude ipa, on style. All ipa are rude.

Wolfenkopf (193) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Brilliantly strong and hoppy, with citrus notes that fill the nose. It promises to be great as soon as you pop the tab. Once poured, the head is off-white and thick for a while. The brew is a dense and daring amber. The taste is brilliant! The hops are strong, but well balanced with the citrus. The aftertaste is bitter, but very briefly so. It is smooth on the palate without being too crisp or too clean. So well balanced, it does not punish the tongue even if you go for the whole six pack. Wonderful IPA!

Draught @ The Alibi Room, Vancouver, BC

Pours orange with a medium head. Aroma has notes of orange, fruits and hops. Taste is quite fruity with notes of grass and more hops. Finish is quite smooth with a slight sweetness. Well balanced IPA.

Dark amber, opaque. Light head which held well. Syrupy smell which was reflected with some sweetness in the taste. Balanced reasonably with dry citrus hops. Overall lacked depth.

Quevillon (3118) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2011
Tasting at the 18th Mondial de la bière, June 9, 2011. Honey clear, small head. Sweet peach hops aroma. Taste of hopped peaches and herbs, slightly sweet, dry bitter herbs. More beer of thirst, not enough hops!

3.5
MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2011
Verre de dégustation, d’une canette, au Mondial 2011. Arômes de houblons américains (beaucoup de résine et d’agrumes). Robe dorée tirant sur le cuivré, limpide. Peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. Assez rugueuse et très résineuse, la bière montre tout de même une belle présence de houblon aromatique. Le malt demeure discret, présentant de discrètes touches grillées. Légères notes d’oxydation (carton). Longue finale présentant une amertume résineuse.

tmoreau (4449) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 12 oz. can poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing Co. Displayed a hazed, orangy/golden hue, with a good deal of cakey, off white head foam, and very clingy curtains of lacing painting the interior of the glass to the bottom. The nose was expressive, with fresh white grapefruit scent, and smooth malt sweetness. With an ampted and lasting hop bitterness that lingered into the finish, smooth malt content restrained the hop just enough to make it nicely flavorful and sessionable!

jeremytoni (3079) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2011
From a can poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

roytheboy (13) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 341ml can. Big bright grapefruit aroma and taste. A small bitter bite. Finishes dry. A lovely west-coast IPA.
