piscator34 (2534) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle. Pale copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of toffee, sweet burnt orange peel, and a bit of dank hops. Pine resin, orange, and heavy toffee-ish malts in the mouth. Medium bodied with a moderate amount of bitterness. Closer to an amber ale than an Imperial IPA. ljthiessen (1348) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
Bottle. Crystal clear Amber pour with a beige head. Aroma is a little richer than the flavour, not particularly hoppy for a 7.5 ABV IPA, but not bad. Some pineapple and melon notes, maybe a little overly sweet. a_sully (457) - - FEB 20, 2015
Copper body that's clear with a light white head. Grassy armoma with hints of citrus. Taste is hoppy with hints of caramel and oak.

ENG: 650ml bottle from Liquor Depot on Whyte, Edmonton. Gold to amber and clean color, small tan head but with some nice lacing. Aromas are very malty with licorice and roasted caramel. Taste is very bitter-sweet, caramel, candy, with notes of chocolate and ice cream, with some kind of smooth-sweet-cream. There might be some hops but it’s really hidden under the overwhelming maltiness. The aftertaste is mostly roasted caramel with a hint of bitterness. It’s not that bad, I can even say it’s an interesting beer, but... this is not an IPA. I don’t know how to classify it, maybe dark / imperial red ale? So my rating is somehow founded on the taste itself, not the style described by the brewery. ///~~~///~~~/// PL: Butelka 650ml z Liquor Depot w Edmonton. Złoto-bursztynowa barwa, klarowna, z niewielką pianą ale z ładnym lejsingiem. Aromaty mocno słodowe, lukrecja i palony karmel. Smak słodko-gorzki, karmelowy, cukierkowy, z nutami czekolady i lodów, do tego coś a’la delikatna słodka śmietanka. Gdzieś tam w tle daje się odczuć chmiel przytłumiony przez mocno wyeksponowane słody. W posmaku głównie palony karmel z nutą goryczki. Nie jest takie złe, mógłbym wręcz stwierdzić, że jest to interesujące piwo, ale... to nie jest IPA. Nie wiem do końca jak je sklasyfikować, ale najbliżej mu chyba do dark / imperial red ale. Moja recenzja oparta jest więc na smaku samym w sobie, a nie na stylu przedstawionym przez browar. jonas (7583) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle. Preety red amber, lowish head. Light oxidized, eathy british hops and caramel malt aroma. Chewy, mellow mouthfeel. Dry grassy and earthy hops, light fruity (apple) notes, broad caramel. A bit dusty, but in quite nice barleywine/old ale really - good balance and with a light minerally finish which makes it a lot more moreish than most IIPAs will be.

Sample at the Beer Heads MeetUp bottle share event in October 2014. Pours a clear copper orange with an off white head. Floral nose. Light citrus and caramel flavors. Somewhat bitter finish. cmacklin (1174) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear, dark amber colour with a thin off-white head. Faint aroma of caramel malt and grain. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and citrus with a dry, resiny, lightly bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Not bad for an IPA but lacking the hop profile for a Double. Zaakistan (19) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle. This was pretty disappointing. Way too malty and no where near enough hops to offset. Nice dark amber colour.

Pours Amber, minimal head. Aroma of barley, malts. Taste is hoppy, malty, grainy. Not too bad for this brewery.

Terrible. I don't know how this could be considered an IPA. Terrible. I tried to tell myself I was drinking a Traditional instead if an IPA but even that didn't help. Poured 75% of the bottle down the drain. Did I mention this is a terrible beer?
