pootzboy (1696) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle; Pours a cloudy orange-amber in the glass with a tight-pored off white 2 finger cap....good retention, laces the glass well. Moderate carbonation, medium bodied. Aroma is pungent - floral citrusy lots of fruity esters wonderful nose to this. Flavor starts out almost sweet with big chewy caramelized malts in front then almost instant balance with hop bittering, mid palate there is some complexity with apricots, grapefruit and malts jut under the bittering hops....finish is long drying and increasingly bitter to s nice hoppy bite at the end. Helluva fine 2XIPA.

bottle shared amongst beer afficionados. A well balanced IPA, getting very close to a noble barley wine though. Very rich, very nice.
