COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A prototype IPA which features a huge malt profile from Maris Otter malt as a backbone, and massive amounts of Cascade & Amarillo hops. The hop flavour and aroma are huge as well as the hop bite. This is not a beer for those afraid of character.

Copper pour, thin off white head. Little bit of a yeasty, bitter orange smell, almost methane (yeah, I mean like a fart). Light body, moderate hoppyness but not as much as advertised. Its got a little bit of that caramel and pine blend that I love in a good IPA, but not enough. Dry finish. Drinkable, but not sure what this stuff is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.13?? I like this stuff, gone through a few sixers of it and still grab it from time to time. Pours a clear orange with a white head. The aroma is biscuity, malty, with almost an after thought of hops and candied orange. The flavour starts out with a touch of grapefruit, but then goes into a heavy biscuit malt phase, then back to the hops in the finish. A little malty for a IPA, and a touch rough around the edges, but over all I really like this brew.

Light citrus hops, mixed with some big bready malts. Great carb, and smooth bitter finish. A really excellent session ale, but quite malt forward. The hops are subdued, but there. Light but enjoyable. A touch dissapointing but glad i got to try it

Bottle. Very interesting beer. Pours a dark amber/orange colour. Almost no head. Aroma of hops, malts. Taste of citrus. Fruity. Full bodied. Would recommend it.

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2011
Pours a hazy dark amber colour with virtually no head. Aroma is of light caramel malts, hops and some fruit. Taste is sweet and malty, close to brown sugar a little bit, it is bitter towards the finish, which is long. Average carbonation, medium body and fairly nice. Overall it is good but there lots of other IPAs ahead of this one.

This represents an IPA very well. Certainly up there with other good canadian IPAs, like Hop Head from Alberta. Very full bodied and hoppy. True to the style, so dont be expecting anything super unique here.

Pour copper/orange beige head. Aroma biscuit, caramel, citrus, malt. Taste malt, biscuit, caramel, citrus, some off taste vegetables. MF medium mild carb. Overall meh strange off tastes sort of blah.

bottle. Amber pour, fluffy head. Aroma of biscuity malts and pine-hops. A little citrus taste, but not much. Taste is sharp, the bitterness is predominant at first, but it finishes with a malty sweetness. Decent IPA, but nothing to distinguish itself from the many others.

Bottle [355ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a clear orange with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, a bit vegetal and somewhat sweet. Flavour reminds me of a mediocre home-brew and its a bit soapy. Dry finish. Light to average bodied. Disappointing.

Bottle from a sixer. I REALLY appreciate the very clear bottled on date, as my local Beer Store does not rotate stock for craft beer. I got the only sixer that hadnt been bottled in September of 2010 (mine was January 2011). Anyways, pours a dark amber with a small beige head. The aroma is big on the malts with almost zero hops, which could be due to the hops fading over the months, or just a lack of aroma hops. The flavour is better, prickly hop bite upfront met with a lot of malty sweetness, a lightish feeling palate. Carbonation is mild enough which I appreciate. Good hop flavour here too, though the bitterness is toned down. Finishes with a caramel biscuit malt element. This is a very malty IPA. Pretty enjoyable as a sessiona ale though, and Im glad I got to finally it.
