From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting Kyle finally made it to at Mickeys on December 01. 22 oz bottle. The pour is a lighter golden orange yellow color with a thick head of off-white head that slowly falls down to a thick film with a couple good spots of lace. The aroma is nice. The citrus is great. Huge citra hops, light bitterness, great citrus zest, and a surprising crispness. The flavor is much of the same. Big, bright citra hops and a light leafy bitterness. The bitter citrus zest is wonderful and lets this thing do what it is supposed to. The mouth feel is a little syrupy, but brightly carbonated with a lingering citra blast. Im a big fan here.

On draft at Caps & Taps. It pours a clear golden color wit a nice off white head. The aroma has passionfruit, lighter notes of grapefruit and some lightly toasted malt. The flavor has the same grapefruit and big passionfruit. Solid toasted malt with a very creamy, oily mouth feel, but dry on the palate. Medium spicy bitterness. A great West Coast IIPA.

650ml bottle from phesterjau, shared by many at Only Child. Thanks Jess! Yellowish orange pour with a white head. Big citra nose. Taste is super smooth citrus with some other fruits. Medium bodied, well blended. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet. Very, very smooth and well done. 15

MartinT (9653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Grapefruit pulp and sandy minerals (cat litter to some) are met by resinous bitterness in this engaging Double IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the hazy beige.
-The fruitiness is pleasant throughout.
-The mouthfeel is soft and effervesncent, quite drinkable for a Double IPA.
-Although this is a perfectly fine Double IPA, I think that their regular Just Outstanding IPA is more pleasant on many fronts.

Bottle.

Bottle courtesy of Jess, thanks a bunch! Pours a honey-orange color. A bit darker than expected. Nice 2 finger head of foam that fades to a ring. Aromas are pretty sweet...cereal grains, honey, rock candy....some peachy hop notes, light tangerine. Taste is pretty sticky sweet with a hefty malt bill. Much heavier on the palate than I expected. I wish the hops were allowed to shine a bit more here. Still, a pretty balanced beer that hides the alcohol fairly well. Finishes with more sticky sweetness that clings to the palate. Not much in the way of hop bitterness...maybe a small alcohol note for some bite, but definitely on the maltier side. Solid beer and glad to have tried it!

22oz. Grapefruit. grassy. hoppy. malt heavy. It doesnt seem as heavy as a double. Decent stuff dont see the top 150 hype, glad I didnt trade for this a year ago when it was much harder to land.
