Shared swing topped liter bottle poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, orangey amber color, with a fair layer of off white head foam, and spotty lacing. The aroma was pit & dried fruit, with a bit of follow up citrus, and a touch of caramel sweetness. Ditto on the taste, with a pronounced and lingering, citrus and rind-like hop bitterness. Medium bodied, with good carbonation, and some noticeable alcohol. Not overwhelming, but a decent DIPA. johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle from Redstone.
Big caramel maltiness, earthy and light citrus hop barely cuts through the malt sweetness. English inspired I assume, decent drinker. Crit (3996) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2009

1 litre bottle. Pours a dark amber with medium head. Aromas of brown sugar and over-ripe fruit. Flavors of dried candied fruit, light toffee, and bitter hops. pintbypint (3634) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2010
1L brown swingtop, capped. Dark orange amber coloured brew. Seems to have a little haze. Poured with a very large thick and pillowy head. Nice lacing with some sticky rings left on the glass. Aroma has candied orange/citrus, and some light leafy notes, undertones of caramel malt. Flavour is orangey hops, decent citrusy bitterness with a sharp grapefruit finish. Long hoppy grapefruity finish attacks the back of the throat nicely. Medium body, medium carbonation. Another higher strength beer that hides its alcohol well. Nice bottle presentation as well.

On tap at Barley Brothers Winnipeg. This was quite a bitter IPA, and didn’t have the malty balance that you normally expect with a double IPA. Still, it was quite enjoyable. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Interesting and tasty beer. Hazy golden-orange hue. Hops have a real richness to them. Not overly aromatic, but they’re full of zingy flavors. Lots of grass, earthy herbs and citrus (zest/peel). Malt flavors have a delicate complexity. Bread crust and dark-grain crackers. Big alcohol is hidden well. Bitterness is on the mild side. Toffee-like sweetness is mild to moderate. Balanced overall.

Bottle, from Triangle Wine. Ok aroma, sweet. Cereal malt. Little citrus, grapefruit and orange. Cloudy brownish orange color, good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Thicker body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Well. It’s a big sweet iipa. Never like when the description says balanced IPA. It’s sweet, hops aren’t a mix I seem to like. My fear is it has travelled too far, but it is what it is to me...ok cfrancis (3444) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2012
Pours cloudy gold with unfiltered goodness and a small frothy white top. Aroma is citrus hops and sweet honey malts. Taste is a nice warming citrus and earthy hop bitterness. Sweet honey malt follows and smoothens out. Nicely balanced. unclemike (3121) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Pours a clear amber with a thin head. Aroma is sharp west coast hops with little identifiable malt. Taste is all hops with very little malt to report...leaves a puckering bitterness on the tongue but not one that is very complex. It’s average, not exceptional
