gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, - AUG 17, 2012
Slightly orange clear pour with a ton of head. Head is fading slowly. Scent is fully of IPA hops, tons of that grassy tart scent. Wet and fresh at first and then like a shot in dark, theres that bite. The IPA bite I am not a fan of but that IPA fans seem to love, so I have to guess this is a good IPA, but not the best beer for me. Still drinkable and I can enjoy it but its just not my style.

papat444 (129) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2017
Appearance: Pours a nice orange body thats semi-clear with a huge foamy head that lasts quite long and clings to the glass with ease. Smell: Some definite piney goodness with some citrus and a touch of sweetness at the end. A bit of resin and caramel(?). The aroma is unrelenting and is probably the best feature of this beer. An IPA cannot smell better. Taste: Not as bitter as i would have thought and that surprised me a little. Still, the taste is solid with some ripe mango, a reserved pine presence and a lip smacking finish. Some rind a little near the end like licking the peel of a lemon or lime and just a touch of spice. Mouthfeel: Quite smooth actually and not at all the hop bomb i thought it would be. It has a sticky, resin-like feel to it but in a good way.

drjoeng (1046) - SINGAPORE - JAN 9, 2017
6.5%ABV. IPA. Poured out amber. 12SRM. Nose is grapefruit peel, citrus oil with a slightly spicy tang of cilantro and wild scallion. Overall, the sweet, tangy and spicy give it a character of "cat piss". You should in no way be detered by this description, it is inviting. 8/10. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has some nice Graham cracker, pie crusts and bread crusts, watered honey, juicy palate at the end reminiscent of orange juice or ripe tangerines. Hops are spicy with scallion on the front with a bit of broad funkiness, then pine, grass and finally a resinous bitter. Picture it like a cone and you get the idea, the flavor just becomes more focused as you go along. Finish is brief-medium with a nice back of the tongue lasting finish. Goes on Favorites List!

Super fruity aroma. Papaya, citrus, pear. Smells really good. Pours a hazy orange-yellow with an off white super foamy head that leaves a thick residue on the glass and a foamy layer on top of the beer. Medium bodied. Starts with a soft mouthfeel and finished with a crisp bitter edge. Lots of fruit. Lots of citrus. A hint of pine. A hint of dank. This is a really nice beers.

Pours clear pale golden color with a small head. Aroma is resinous hoppy, some apricot and orange, pale malts, some peach. Flavor is resinous hops, orange, malt bitterness, subtle grass. Heavy oily mouthfeel. Decent but not refreshing or pleasant.

fiery_1 (584) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2016
12/25 from Double Blind IPA tasting. Growler, copper in colour. Light nose with tea and herbal aspects. Way too bitter for my liking. Placed 15th

JPDIPSO (6002) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Deep golden color with a tall beige head. Citric and piney hops dominate the aroma, but some lightly toasted malt is found in the background. Pine sweetness in the front. Some orange citrus in the middle. Soft, oily, slightly sticky feel. Good balance throughout. Nicely done. 3/11

zimbo (930) - SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Huge glossy billowing long lasting thick head on top of a slightly hazy deep golden body. Good slicy piny hop nose. Great firm backbone. Chewy oily spicy hop pineyness on the palate which develops and envelops through to the end and aftertaste. World class.

googleimage83 (111) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
Apple, pine, caramel in aroma - some tropical fruit sweetness (mango?) in the mix as well. Translucent cidery brown-orange body with pillowy head. Floral bitter character is very strong and kicks in very early, threatening to overpower some of the fruitier traits, but dissipates to a tolerable level midway in. Picking up a caramel apple sweetness to counteract the bitter bomb. A light mineral bitterness lingers in the finish. Nice grainy malt in there as well. Not the easiest drink, but a very nice IPA.

Can from beer of the month club. Goes under red Betty name. Nose and body are all hops. Pine feel is weird and a bit off. Not a great or good or average ipa. Kinda disappointed.
