Pours with thick overflowing head that is golden yellow. Beer is light brown lots of carbanation. Aroma Light flowery hop aromas First sip is creamy hops floating on sweet slightly atringent beer. The brew is smooth and nicely aged. Like a well balanced hop tea. Aftertaste is white birch bark bitter tempered with cream.

Notes: cloudy rusty amber with a reasonable pale head that leaves behind a slight lacing. Aroma is northwest hops, fresh cut grass, touch of pine and a hint of caramel, good overall floral note. Good body, reasonable balance between malt and hoppy bitterness - the hops are not an overwhelming sock in the mouth with pine and spruce, whilst still being noticeable and finishing with a crisp bitterness. Taste is quince, grapefruit, caramel, malt and pine. One of the best IIPA’s I have tried.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2012
1 Liter Swingtop Bottle. Appearance is a cloudy burnt orange and gold color along with an inch of solid beige head. Lots of brown sugar, candied orange peel and herbal hops notes in the aroma with a bit of pine resin at the end. The taste starts out with a good deal of earthy hops bitterness and grapefruit citrus flavors that lead to a sweet, bready caramel malt middle. Toward the end there’s some toffee, pine and alcohol. The body is slick and creamy with moderate carbonation and more caramel sweetness and grapefruit rind in the finish. A little more malt-forward than most DIPAs but with enough citrus and piney bitterness to keep it relatively balanced.

Thanks to the Mrs for bring this over from the west. Not that she will ever read this. Nice amber colour with a frothy white head and lace clinging to the glass. Nice fruit gum, grapefruit hop aroma. Initial caramel, fruit flavour. Grapefruit bitterness. Very nice IPA, packed with hops. Very enjoyable.

Not the best IIPA I’ve ever had, but still fairly decent. Not overly bitter, but the alcohol taste is pretty strong. Still, a 1L bottle! Make sure you have friends to share this with...

1 litre swingtop bottle poured a hazy orangey color with big white head and nice lacing. Aroma is primarily hops and a little alcohol. Taste is balanced nicely as there is plenty of malty sweetness to dull the huge amount of hops in this beer. There is not any overpowering bitterness in this beer and it is a pleasing beer to drink.

Matts_Property (837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2011
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours clear orange / brown with a thick creamy head. Aroma of citrus hops, caramel and mango. Flavour of mangos, herbs, citrus hops and caramel. Medium-bodied with a bitter aftertaste.

Lagerboy (2189) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2011
UPDATED: APR 20, 2012 Eclipse of the Hop?!? Au contraire, this bad boy is nothing but hop... six varieties, no less. Zesty, herbal, grassy, piney, floral and citrusy, lots of overlapping sensations in this one... though if a Lagerboy such as I can put away a whole litre, it’s probally an IPA Light for all you hardcore hopheads, eh?
