To be immodest has to lack humility and decency. With out Immodest Imperial IPA, we achieved just that! Obscene use of Citra & Simcoe hops will atack your senses with bright citrus fruit, balanced with earthy pine notes. The indecency doesnt stop there, as it packs a wallop at 9.5% but you wont notice because it drinks so remarkably smooth. Dont worry, your modesty isnt needed here.

mikkopen (1149) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2017
473 ml can. Hazy yellow colour, thick white head, nice lacing. Sweetish aroma of malt, peaches, pineapple and citrus fruits, with resiny notes. The flavour is sweetish malty, with tropical fruits, and a bitter finish with grapefuit and resiny notes. Very tasty and well balanced.

MrBunn (2800) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Can. Pours hazy orange with a very large sudsy head and aromas the start off all over the place but settle down as it airs out a bit. First sip was sugary, boozy, peach and pine and a bit of sour or something. The sour edge disappears and never shows up in the flavor. Flavor has white grapes, peach and pine with a boozy heat and a chewy and sugary malt presence. Decent.

reebtogi (6204) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 24, 2016
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit citrus with hints of caramel and grains. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, an easy drinking DIPA with a nice balance of hops and malts. Recommended.

Strangebrewer (1283) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
can 9.0%. Poured hazy golden-amber with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is a mix of sweet citrus with some punchy hops youd expect from an Imperial. Medium-full bodied, smooth carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a tart finish. Flavour is sweet and bitter. Bready malts up front, nutty, big dry hopped presence, notes of apricot, pine resin, citrus peel, all well blended together, and the alcohol is well hidden.

From the can. Murky dark orange color, with a little fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, and earthy somewhat metallic hops. Taste is earthy hops, sweet malts, and a bitter bite. Drying finish. Maybe an older can? Could not find a BOD. Not my thing.

portwood (268) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
Sweet citrusy hops with a hint of mango and other tropical fruits. Medium carbonation, starts sweet, caramel, grapefruit juice. Dry with resiny bitterness at back end. Doesnt feel like 9% ABV or as bitter as the 85 IBU would suggest. However, the high alcohol hits you like a brick soon enough! (canned 03/17/16, tasted 03/26/16)
