2017-07-13. Very lightly hazy dark amber body with a modest foamy beige head and lace. 4+ Aroma is surprisingly alcoholic, green hops. Flavour is fairly bitter up front, resiny hops, muddled but pleasant berry fruit character. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Okay. 7/4/7/3/15+ Bottle from Arch, Newmarket.

Dark amber pour, fluffy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, malty, smell potent. Flavor is mild. Lots of hops, a good bite at the finish. Some lingering bitterness. Good balance and a very solid IPA. bubbleflubber (2241) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Pours visually stunning into the glass, with a dark amber-prune hue and a retentive, 2-finger eggshell-tan head that leaves thick lacing. The nose is of mixed berries and pine, a nice collaboration. Flavors are malty, of caramel and bitter chocolates, with an abundance of raspberry and blueberry "essence". skewing "overbearing", which doesn’t take over the IPA malts and citric, woody bitters at work, but have an ester presence nonetheless (a very nice balance here). The nice woody, bitter finish combines with a full body and complex, substantial palate, alongside medium carbonation to provide a "cold winter" brew feel to a "summertime" offering. Although a little complex for a "lawnmower" beer, this is perfect for a summer aperitif, dinner complement, or after-hours offering. A very nicely integrated brew, with berries underlying traditional, premium "Stone" DIPA notes provide for a top-tier Imperial IPA "one-off" collaboration. Very, very nice. Love it! And hopefully, so will you! Kudos!
