Project X. Very muddy pour (corrected on subsequent pours) pale yellow and a tight head. The aroma is softlymhoppy and fresh with some bright citrus and a bit of lemon peel as well. Softly bready with some nice fruitiness to the hops. Assertively bitter, especially as it starts to warm up. Simcoe and Amarillo seem to make an appearance. Awesome stuff.

Sampled at the IPA Challenge, Volo 2010. Pours a slightly opaque brown with small white head. Hops taste in the citrus range. Slight peppery spice. Finish is bitter but not overly pleasing. Decent.

Blind @ Volos DIPA tasting, 2010. Quite cloudy light orange body. Nose is kinda unfermented wort & amarillo pellets before theyre boiled. Its like Citrus fruitloops. Odd. Flavor is malt, a bit of bitterness, some hop but that is kinda washed out. Alcohol & grainy malt become apparent in the finish.

Cask at April Project X event at brewery. Pours a cloudy orangey brown with small white head. Fresh citrusy hops with some pepper spiciness. Taste has big citrus hops but rather harsh and spicy. Wasnt wild about this one.

Bottle from brewery; Pours a clouded orange amber in the glass. Puffy off-white cap sustains and laces well. Soft natural carbonation. Typical DIPA aromas; toffee-caramel under grapefruit-orang citrus peel, some mustiness and light fusel. Average bodied, rocky mouth feel. Big caramalt in front amply balanced with citrus bittering...long wet finish continues to grow more citrusy. Good balance, flavorful but 2 dimensional...needed time to develop a bit of complexity. Good sturdy offering.

Cask at Rhino. Pours a hazy copper-orange with a spare diminishing white head. Nice resiny hop aroma along with some tropical fruit. Flavour tastes more like an IPA then a DIPA but its still good, plenty of slightly spicy hops and a good bitter finish. Alcohols well hidden. Medium bodied. A very good beer.

Enjoyed on cask at The Rhino, after missing it at another stop on the cas pub crawl weekend. A melange of tasty hops including magnum, colombus, cascade and amarillo. Some head on dark grapefuit. Moderate hop aromas, quite drinkabl and interesting. Middle plus mouthfeel, creamy even. A real winner, the IBU is there and it does not destroy the palate.

On cask at Volo in Toronto, served in a tasting glass. Pours murky orange-light brown with a small tan head. Head fades but laces well. Aroma is very fresh: grapefruit, flowers, pine, toffee and pepper. Flavour begins sweet but becomes quite bitter towards the finish. Finish is long pepper-spice. As the glass warms, pepper becomes more prominent until it dominates. On the palate, full in body with a creamy texture and light carbonation. Overall, an interesting, well-constructed brew; combines the citrus/pine aroma and bitterness of a double IPA with delicate floral notes and soft carbonation from the cask. Pepper is a bit too dominant for my taste. 2010-05-07
