SuperCollider Double IPA is the antimatter to uninspired IPAs. Meddling with the limits of regular Ontario IPAs, the Flying Monkeys brewed a double that blows a black hole in the taste buds of our IPA lovers.

A dark amber, with a beige creamy head. Bitter & acidic. I was not overly impressed with this one. Kinda of expected more flavour, instead felt overwhelmed with alcohol heat on the palate and throat. Needs to be refined.

650 ml bottle - pours hazy fox-fur amber with a tight beige head. Aroma hugely fruity, tropical hops, citrus, touch of alcohol. Alcohol is more present in the flavour, and actually a bit hot. Alcohol overwhelms. Would like to see the ABV on this one knocked down to about 9-10%. Hops are there, as is a pretty big malt body, but theres surprisingly next to no finish. With some tweaking, this could be a superb DIPA - as it stands, its still pretty good, just not great. Kudos to the Monkeys for attempting a rarely brewed style in Ontario.

Bottle, pours a dark brown, light head, smell is quite nice lots of hops. the taste is different it has a lot of malt in the taste, it is a really heavy beer. Decent offering

From my dear Canadian brother, bomber: Pours a really dark colour for a DIPA; it is kind of a light brown colour with a beige head of small stature. Kind of a weird aroma that doesnt really indicate how the beer will actually taste. Kind of malty aroma, with not really that much hops. Taste is plenty bitter from all them hop jawns. It is also quite malty. Sort of a beer that is cranked up, but without being cranked to a proper equilibrium. Alcohol is well covered, however. Not my favourite. Sorry dear brother.

Hoppy grainy with some licorice aroma . Very roasty flavor, not what if expect from a dipa but not bad. Just no where near hoppy enough for my taste

copper brown pour with 1 finger of head leaving a trail of lace. Aroma is all bitter hops. Overly bitter hoppiness up front, slightly green citrus fruit, pine, alcohol. Carbonation is medium, a bit light in the mouthfeel. Hopefully they rethink this one.

Deep copper pour with a tan head. Aroma is grassy and sweet. Lots of caramel and maltiness. I started drinking this to cold and all it was was sweet. Lots of caramel flavors, unfermented sugars maybe? Some grassy chlorophyll action too. As it warmed it became more bitter, but other than that never gained much in the way of hop character. Not undrinkable, but not very good either. Oh well.

from bottle. First up, as dIPAs go this one seems to be aimed at the shock factor. High ABV and high IBU. Ive been there and done that and you know what, ive yet to be impressed. They inevitably end up being unbalanced and to an extent undrinkable. Anyhoo, ill try and approach it with an open mind. deep copper red colour with a healthy head. I ended up decanting some back into the bottle for another night. Thats too big a bottle for one person and too big a bottle for such a high ABV. Was looking for some citrusy grassy notes in the aroma but im just getting hops and booze. Fair enough, its high IBU lives up to expectation and its a bitter wee fellow but in the end I just find it overpowering (overwhelming?) and im struggling to eek out any degree of complexity in the flavour. It serves is purpose as a beast of an IPA but not one id have again as there are better dIPAs available and not one id recomend other than as a curiosity.

DeanF (2404) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2011
Pours with a huge, solid, undulating head and a copper-yellow body with plenty of carbonation. The aroma is sweet hops and some bitter hops as a finish. Sampled at 20.1 celsius it has a hoppy citrus character but the mouthfeel is bad - all that alcohol and what made it lingers too long on the tongue. Out of balance, and an okay beer, but there are better double-IPAs out there.

Quevillon (2990) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
650 ml bottle purchased at the Rideau and King Edward LCBO (Ottawa) on November 13, 2011. Red wine, small head. Aroma of barley sugar and citrus, well hopped. Sweet and sour taste of hops, notes of peach and citrus, very bitter. This is very extreme in every sense, but drinkable!
