Poured a clear, orange body beneath a rocky white head. Aroma was well hopped. Flavour and mouth were acceptable. Not the best IIPA ever for me, but it was okay.

I enjoyed this ale and surprised it was so smooth with an alcohol content of 8.2 as I expected to taste that. Not too hoppy or bitter.

Bottle - Caramel malt and some light hop notes. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Caramel, metalic notes and some booze. Not very complex and just OK.

Bottle into glass. Very faint hoppy citrus aroma. Pours a hazy copper with minimal head. Taste is light to medium bitter. Medium bodied with a creamy texture and a slightly bitter finish. I’m conflicted about this one, its not bad but could be a bit more hoppy. But if you are looking for a strong beer that is not overly bitter and hoppy this one might be for you.

On tap at Spinnakers. This one was sharp and bitter. I like the style, but this wasn’t the best representation.

On draft at the brewpub Victoria. Clear medium gold color, with an off white head. Surprisingly small amount of hops, this is primarily a malt forward beer, bread, mild sweetness, caramel, and notes of citrus. It’s not really bad, but it’s very different from your typical double pale ale.

vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
Une pâle ale assez bonne mais pas très impériale. Amer, assez bien équilibré, mais rein de complexe ou unique.

nealblind (1965) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Amber pour. Foamy head. Aroma of soapy citrus pine. Tastes like funky milk - cow’s teat. Caramel pine citrus. Palate is thick.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2014
The Great BrewDad Victoria Pub Crawl 2014- The big hops aroma just did not come off. Interesting but I would say a IPA not a double.

houblonchien (89) - CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Amber in the glass with little head. Mild on the tongue without much hop but ok malt. Much like an English style easy sipper.

One of the better strong beers I have had. At such a high alcohol this beer is very clean tasting.
