Golden pour, fairly strong and somewhat astringent hops. Lots of grapefruit type bitterness, hot, it’s okay.

Ferris (14832) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2015
Draft - Lots of sweet caramel and sweet hoppy notes. Cloudy copper with a decent white head. Sweet then intense bitterness and a boozy bitter finish. Not good.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2011
Pint at C’Est What? in Toronto. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange brown with thin off white head. Aroma is grainy citrus hops. Very bitter grapefruit citrus rind flavour, slightly citric but quickly overwhelmed by a boozy biscuit malt. The finish is a tad harsh and unrefined. It’s okay but a little raw.

On tap at the brewery. Clear amber brown with small head that retains. Overall not bad. I liked the number 9 more. Probably wouldn’t buy a bottle of it.

davidm (2079) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Tap at the brewery. Great beer. Aromas of nuts, pine, and caramel. Taste has a sweet start, with a bitter bite, and a long finish. Palate is almost creamy, with a medium-to-full body. Amber, with a frothy white head.

mabel (9222) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
[3146-20100719] Tap. Grainy citrus hops aroma. Slightly hazy, dark orange brown body with a quick creamy off-white head. Very bitter grapefruit citrus rind flavour has a long Seville orange aftertaste. Full body is boozy. Wow, heavy and bold, a little too alcoholic.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, served in an English pint glass. Pours clear dark amber with a thin remnant of white head. The head leaves behind a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of grapefruit, pine, flowers, biscuit malts, spice and a hint of anise. The flavour is slightly sweet throughout, with a moderate bitterness that increases towards the end. It is also moderately acidic towards the end. There are notes of grapefruit and flowers. The finish is long, lingering tangy bitter. On the palate it is medium-full in body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is not a bad double IPA. It has a West Coast-style aroma with a flavour that is more English. It is reasonably well balanced and not as alcoholic as I would expect. Very well done. 2010-10-15

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
Cask at C’est What - came a crystal clear orangey/amber with a small white film that lasted for most of the glass. Aroma reveals some pine, an earthiness, sweet caramel malt. Flavours of green hops shine through, grapefruit pith, west coast-ish, but not quite - the caramelly body gives this a sort of Brit/US hybrid vibe. More on the Brit side, I’d say, and as others have noted, seems more like a strong ESB than a DIPA. Some alcohol present, but not overpowering. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Solid effort, but I prefer the regular #9 to this.
