Sample at brewery.
In the aroma citrus, berries, grapefruit.
The clear golden beer has a medium white head.
Hoppy, but less than you might expect. Citrus.
Medium carbonated. patricks110 (2496) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
Not sure if I expected this to be good or not. Pour is nice with a bright golden orange body and a sticky, resin filled off white head. Phenolic aroma with light tropical fruits, caramel, not much. Bitter and boring with a few pineapple and mango notes, grapefruit. Just not exciting. gnoff (10513) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2015
On June 19, 2015. At Granville Island Brewing, in Vancouver, British Columbia.XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2015
Small batch brewed on site.
Hazy golden color, white head. Hoppy, caramel, sweet taste. Medium mouthfeel to full, medium high bitterness. Hoppy scent.
Bottle. Aroma was dusty, caramel, juicy. Taste was very bitter at first sense, then the juicy sweetness rounded it out. Palate was gritty, very sticky, medium carbonation. MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
Nice one! Had a hazy orange pour with a big foamy head. Tons of sediment - and by tons I mean I had to strain chunks of yeast or whatever out. Docked an appearance point for that, but otherwise I really enjoyed it! Had a big bitter hoppy taste followed by piney earthy profile and a strong malt contrast.

Poured from the tap. Orangey yellow with off white head. Tropical citrus hops with a hint of specifically apple. Lightly sweet malt with a piney finish. Alcohol is hidden. UXO (1896) - CANADA - JUN 8, 2015
Pours slightly hazy pale amber with two fingers of rocky off-white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is pine resin, grapefruit, metallic, earthy, tropical fruit. (6/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, strong bitter. (6/10) Medium and slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, lingering boozy finish. (3/5)
I’m a bit on the fence about this one. On the one hand, it’s got the right balance for a DIPA - hops leading, malt supporting - but there’s a component to the aroma that is coming across almost as savoury. It’s OK, but I wouldn’t go looking for another one. (12/20) jgb9348 (6281) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Crisp, slightly hazy copper coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of citrus, pine, earth, malt and a good deal of alcohol. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong rich earthy and metallic notes up front with a lot of apricot, pine, earth and bitter resinous flavours. Aftertaste shows some alcohol, metal, bitter pine and resin, along with still a lot of alcohol. Overall, a decent Imperial IPA, especially North of the border, but definitely not comparable to others from the states. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from the Brewpub Bottle Shop on Granville Island, Vancouver, British Columbia, yesterday on 06-June-2015 for CA$6,95 sampled in my hotel room back in the centre of the city in Vancouver, BC, Canada on 07-June-2015.

Draft - Nice grapefruit rind. Clear gold with a rich white head. Lots of sweetness, tropical fruit and a long bitter dry finish. Not bad. bulldogops (2507) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Rating #1090 - May 19, 2014 - #mondaynightbeers @RevolutionYEG. Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is spicy, earthy hops, mild berry sweetness, mild citrys. Taste is mildly hoppy, not many piney, resinous notes, again subtle citrus sweetness. No way this is 100 IBUs (even though I hate IBUs) - expected better depth and a shitload more hops.
