COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Part of Tank Ten Series
As a child, RoboHop was shunned for his laser beam eyeballs, bulbous hop-shaped torso and robotic limbs.
During adolescence however, things changed for our hero. He captained his high school hockey team, routinely took over dance floors, and thusly, garnered a lot of attention from female classmates.
Today, RoboHop battles blandness by making this killer-hoppy and bracingly bitter beer. Suffer.
Seasonal: Part of Tank Ten Series.

The first time in a bomber rather then can, it still holds up very well. The hoppy bitterness gives way to a citrusy back end that is quite refreshing.

MatChar (43) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2017
Appearance: hazy dark orange, pale amber with nice, thick foam. Smell: smooth resinus hops, apricot. Taste: notes of apricot, peach, with nice piney hops, mod-high bitterness, and slight alcohol feel. Pretty juicy feel and taste for DIPA at 8,5 ABV. Overall: nicely done DIPA, another great hoppy beer by GLB.

Another good IPA beer by Great Lakes. Delicious taste but surprisingly for a Imperial IPA I find it easy drinking. The bitterness isnt sticking to my mouth hours after I drank it, its very enjoyable fruit hop flavour forward. A Imperial you can enjoy!

DanDan_ (47) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2017
Can (tagged 03-31-17): Pours translucent golden orange (almost amber), small white head, alcohol legs. Lots of fresh floral hops, caramel malt, grass, resin, fruity citrus (grapefruit), and hint of pine. Bit of malty sweetness but a whole lot of bitterness, small hint of alcohol and soapiness. Medium+ body, soft medium carbonation, resiny syrupy feel, and long bitter dry finish. Overall, the fresh hops and subtle hints of malty sweetness are nice, but this is an abrasively hoppy bitter DIPA.

mathieuc (3872) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2017
On tap at Brothers Beer Bistro in Ottawa. Pours a fairly clear golden with a small white head that leaves pretty good lacing. Nose is of ripe tropical fruits and slight onion. Taste is gently bitter and offers more tropical fruits and some alcohol. Not too sweet. Body is medium, carbonation moderate. Overall a really solid IIPA, not too boozy or sweet and that I can really appreciate.

Tranquillity (2210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2017
Canned. Half-hazy yellow body, large white head. The aroma has hops, pineapple. The taste is full, with nice oaky notes and some dryness from nuts. The finish is extremely fruity without being too alcoholic.

ChadPoole (446) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2017
Pours golden with a creamy white head. Aroma is tropical fruits with citrus hops. Mixture of sweet and bitter fruit flavours that make this a great IPA. Everything I was hoping for, excellent job.

Clear golden honey body with average head, very high retention. Tropical juice on the nose - tangerine, mango, with distinctly malty sweetness. Taste is loaded with sticky mango and orange and toffee malt flavours. Notes of apple and oak. Bitter hop finish is heavy but easy to take, not harsh. Another winner from GLB.

sudomorph (1143) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2017
3.30.17 can from the lcbo. Pours a hazy golden copper with a finger and a bit of white head that sticks to the glass. Aroma has huge, juicy notes of resin, pine, citrus, bready caramel, and grapefruit. Taste bitter but balanced. Sweet bready caramel, resin, pine, grass, grapefruit, melon, citrus, and a drawn out, malty resiny ending. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. A bit syrupy in the mouth with a soft mouth feel and a dry finish. Overall a very fresh, malty, resiny, piney iipa. Very nice.

Couleur Or pale avec une belle mousse blanche qui diminue vite mais qui est toujours la avec sa petite effervescence. Arme bien sucr avec des notes de caramel, et de crales et un peu rsineux! En bouche, cest des saveurs de caramel, pin, citron et lgrement pic au palais, une finale sche sur des notes rsineuses et herbacs!! Vraiment bon!

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2016
650 ml bottle from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden colour with a bit of white head. Short retention and lots of lacing.

Aroma: Hops and citrus

Flavours: Grapefruit, other citrus, trace of malt.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and coating. Very pleasant.

Overall: I really like this one and considering its a GLB Tank 10 beer, Im not surprised. Lots of bitter citrus but there is enough of a balance where other characteristics like a trace of malt come through.
