3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a brownish red with a nice hop aroma. A bit of a high alcohol taste with an aftertaste of currants. Ok, but not great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from LCBO. This 4-pack winked at me the last time I was at the LCBO. It was a day or two after New Years & I was feeling less than fresh & the thought of a IIPA/strong ale (this beer could & should be classified as either) 4-pack seemed daunting. Along comes a crappy week at the education factory & (more importantly) payday & this beauty is in my fridge. Nice clash of rich malt & generous dry hops. Cut some of the sugars & this would probably punch its way into a 4.0+ rating.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours amber with copper highlights; the head is off white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: toffee, grapefruit zest, freshly cut grass, mangos, and strawberry jam. The taste is medium bitter. The palate is medium-heavy bodied with medium carbonation, and has a long finish. Overall, it has a very unique profile.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cor âmbar com tonalidade rubi, turva com algum brilho e um pouco de perlage; espuma marfim de tonalidade amarelada formando bela cascata quando vertida; alta formação e média/alta persistência com lacing regular.
Aroma com perfeito equilíbrio da base maltada de caramelo (um pouco açucarado mas agradável) e muito lúpulo cítrico (muita toranja e leves abacaxi e manga), além de leve álcool lembrando madeira.
Sabor inicial de caramelo evoluindo para meio alcoólico e cítrico (vide aroma), aumentando de intensidade até o final; retrogosto alcoólico, amargo e um pouco amadeirado.
Corpo sedoso com espuma cremosa na boca nos primeiros goles e baixa carbonatação.
Um show de equilíbrio e alta drinkabilty, ainda mais para uma cerveja com 8,7% ABV.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2016/12/09 - Pours a clear, deep amber colour with a thick, frothy, cream coloured head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate, sticky lacing. Aroma is caramel, sweet bread, brown sugar, earthy notes, resin, citrus (grapefruit, orange) and a hint of pineapple. Taste is caramel, orange, sweet bread resin, more earthy hops and a hint of booze. Moderately bitter and moderate to high sweetness. Mouthfeel is full and sticky with smooth carbonation and a dry, bittersweet finish. Incredibly smooth and well balanced for a beer of this ABV.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A rich reddy amber body with a dense beige head. The nose is an engaging mix of big, fresh resinous hops, brown sugar and malt. A really tasty malt forward imperial ipa. Rich caramel, chewy biscuit malt and cereal form the backbone. Grapefruit, orange and pine resin lead an impressive hop profile. Coats the mouth with sweetness. A dense, slick body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I am surprised I have not reviewed this beer before. Beautiful pour, ruby red with a tan colored abundant foamy head. Smells resiny, herbal and like a wet first in spring. First taste is amazing, it fills the mouth very well balanced, even though alcohol is not evidently present. Great beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml can from LCBO. Pours an insane amount of foamy, bubbly beige head and has a fairly clear amber coppery appearance. Nice thick dirty lacing. Aromas of toasty malts, hints of caramel as well as resin and earthy hops. Flavours are sweet and malty, some caramel also makes a strong appearance. Some earthy hop notes. Has a little bit of a rusty metallic like finish, does not detract or lessen from main flavour notes. Good retention. Medium bodied mouthfeel.
