3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought the last bottle at the LC in Sydney River in early July 2012. Wasn’t totally blown away by it, but it was pretty good although I was expecting more. I guess I was hoping for more hop aroma... It was hoppy and bitter and malty and great but not double IPA hoppy enough on the nose for me. More on the nose would have been good. But it was fine. But not awesome. Decent. Would like to try it again. Maybe it was old, I didn’t check the best before date.
2017-08-11. Crisp orange body, nice foamy off white head. 3++ Aroma is resiny and lightly green. Flavour is fairly bitter, moderate resiny hops throughout. Grassy green notes. Alcohol in the aftertaste. Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. Decent, not a ton of depth or citrus. 7/4/7/3/14-15 Bottle from NSLC, Sydney, NS.

D’un beau doré lumineux, une mousse soyeuse semble figée sur place. Une fine dentelles s’accroche à la paroi. Un nez intense de houblon floral, de malt épais et de conifère. Des vapeurs sucrées se mêlent à d’autres vapeurs d’alcool. Un gros liquide épais empreint de malt, de houblon et d’alcool. Une bonne corpulence et une amertume assez timide. Pas de finesse dans cette bière mais c’est pour cette raison que j’apprécie. (Emb. 2è semaine de juin 2016) (1919-130816) teamrunkle (381) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2016

Purchased at NSLC on my trip to Nova Scotia. Pours a clean amber colour with a big beige head, good retention and lots of creamy-foamy lace. Aromas of grass, caramel, fruits, cereal malts and nutty notes. The taste is matly with some grass. Some bitterness in the finish, but not too crazy. Not a hop bomb, but a decent DIPA.
