Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 11.2 fl. oz. bottle as All Occasions IPA. Opaque orange brown, foamy off-white head settles and fades. Aroma is boozy caramel malt with a hint of citric resinous hop. Potent boozy taste of rich dense sweet malt up front, woody pine hops, some citrus and earth behind. Soft carbonation, medium-full bodied, less aggressively hopped than it’s North American counterparts, but still: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

Pours amber color with a foamy white head. The pine and citrus really comes through followed by a long and hoppy finish. This is a great DIPA. dfearnley (2404) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 6, 2013

Bottle labelled All Occasions IPA to flute
Aromas of pine, oak, spruce, and grapefruit. Hazy amber with nice effervescence and a creamy off white head. Taste is caramel malty followed by a hoppy blast.
Lasting small white foamy head with a clouded deep amber colour. Pleasant pine resin nose with a fairly harsh hop bitterness with some tin residue. Very average. Purchased at Metro Liquor at University Heights, 11.2pz bottle. mverity (362) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Coppery orange in color. Head dissipated quickly. Aroma is slightly vanilla, earthy/tangy hops. An uncommon sweetness, for a DIPA; but that’s not what throws me off. The hops is appropriately bitter, but has a chemical quality as well. Very boozy. Too much alcohol for the 8%. Mouthfeel is actually great though.

Pours cloudy orange with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long slightly warm, fruity and bitter finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
330ml brown bottle. Hazy dark orange pour, tan head that fades to a thin layer. Patchy lacing. Fruity and citrus nose with plenty of orange and grapefruit. Taste is grapefruity, some caramel malts. A little alcohol at the end with a bit of warming in the throat. Grapefuity hops in the aftertaste. Medium body, average carbonation, good lasting bitterness. Voerall a good double IPA that kind of plays it safe. jaghana (6363) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 9, 2013
