Tasting at Bruces pad. Thanks to Colin for another DIPA treat. Hazy gold beer, residual white head. Smooth softish palate with good fine carbonation. Light creamy malt supports crisp fresh orange hops. Lesser hop skunk. Finishes smooth with hop spice lingering on. I found this light.and easy going!

fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle from Lee Discount Liquor, Las Vegas
Clean amber color with creamy head. Very nice aroma, hoppy, fresh, fruity; later, the animal side shows too. Good body strength, not too thick; caramel and toffee flavor, with just an acceptable touch of crystal malt; moderate sweetness; strong hopping, with loads of piney resins, reasonable fruity contribution; the final is a bit, pleasantly abrasive; long. It manages not to be chewy.
Excellent.

On tap @ Uncle Henrys Deli. Hazed orange pour with a white head. Really pine and grass forward on the nose. Some sweet bready malt and biscuit. Quite resinous. Flavor is really quite bitter. Lots of pine, some grass, and a lot of orange peel. A bit of peach as well. Mild sweetness of bready malt.

mcberko (16021) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours almost clear golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, candied sugar, and some citrus hops - hinting at a sweeter IIPA than normal. Flavour of pineapple, mangos, caramel malt, candied sugar, leaving just a small citrus hoppiness on the finish. Too much residual sugar for my liking for a IIPA, but still mildly enjoyable.
